Watch Mattycollector’s Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Mockup and Comparison Video

Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Mockup Compared with Batmobile Ecto_600x600726

I may need to be covered in mood slime and blasted with some Ray Parker, Jr. – because I don’t think things are looking too good for the Ghostbusters Epic Creations Ecto-1. When I checked yesterday, the subscription tracking silhouette (typing that in made me miss the thermometer) hadn’t moved for over a week, if the 726 on the photo means July 26.

Toy Guru is bringing the marketing effort to YouTube, where he stacks up the foam model against the short-lived Mattel Ghostbusters figures and some earlier Mattel Ghostbuster vehicle efforts that somehow didn’t need pre-orders for Mattel to make them. To be fair, the earlier toys are smaller and didn’t have lights and sounds. In Ghostbusters, Ray Stantz was able to pick up the Ecto-1 for $4,800 – Mattel only has to sell 22 and a third of their 1/12 scale Ecto-1s to recoup the cost of the original.

Here’s a look at the mock-up for the first ever Ghostbusters Ecto-1 vehicle in scale to 6″ figures available for pre-order at See a side-by-side comparison to a previous Ecto and new Peter & Ray figures that will sit inside the Ecto. Please Note: a minimum pre-order goal must be reached by 8/19/13 to go forward with production. If it does, then orders will continue to be taken through 11/5/13. Details here

  1. I just can’t get over the fact that we should have had removable proton pack figures from the start. ¬†Shame though, because that car would be awesome to have, especially if you can slide the packs in and out of the trunk.

  2. Mattel must have someone pointing a loaded gun at Neitlich when he makes these videos. How else do you seriously justify this being worth $215?
