Transformers Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary Ectotron (Target Exclusive Edition)
Since Transformers and Ghostbusters just happened to debut in the same year, we got a crossover in the form of a transforming Ecto-1 called Ectotron. It’s now been repainted and packed with comic book and a new ghost.
The two ghosts are Slimer, believe unchanged, from the original release, and a new ghost that is supposed to be from Ghostbusters: Afterlife. What’s interesting is that it doesn’t say anything about Ghostbusters: Afterlife on the package.
Previous Mold Use: Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary Ectotron
In vehicle mode, Ectotron is mostly unchanged. He has some rusty paint apps on his hood. They look fine, but if you’re going to give him rusty paint apps, maybe put them on the whole body of the car. His Ghostbusters logos also have lines in them so they appear cracked. In robot mode the paint changes are mostly color switches, brown for silver and vice versa. I prefer the silver chest on the new version. He has a new head sculpt. I was hoping for one without the goggles, but instead, it’s a different head sculpt with goggles. I think this one is better, but a regular head would have been nice on one of them.
Overall: I’m not sure this Ectotron is different enough from the original to make it a must buy. It is $10 more than the original, which seems a lot for a comic and an unpainted ghost.
Thanks for reading!
