HASBRO REVEALS TRANSFORMERS-GHOSTBUSTERS ECTO-1 COLLABORATIVE FIGURE AND IDW COMIC SERIES
‘More than Meets the Eye’ Collides with ‘Who You Gonna Call?’ For Transformers & Ghostbusters™ 35th Anniversaries
PAWTUCKET, RI – Feb. 15, 2019 – Autobots, Decepticons
andghosts?! Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ :HAS) and Sony Pictures Consumer Products today revealed the first-ever TRANSFORMERS-Ghostbusters Collaborative figure, the ECTO-1 ECTOTRON, available at GameStop summer of 2019 and for pre-order starting February 15 at HasbroPulse.com, GameStop and EB Games Canada. This year marks the 35th anniversary of both the TRANSFORMERS brand & the original Ghostbusters film.
When fans of the iconic Ecto-1 from the 1984 Ghostbusters movie look a little closer at this nostalgic interpretation of the car, they will be treated with a new “robot in disguise” named ECTOTRON, a converting Paranormal Investigator. The figure is packed in a G1-inspired box featuring classic tech specs and comes with its own proton pack and Slimer accessory, and converts between two modes in 22 steps – a
seven inchEcto-1 vehicle and a TRANSFORMERS robot.
TRANSFORMERS robots have always been more than meets the eye, but now, through the TRANSFORMERS Collaborative, fans can experience these larger than life characters as they team-up, mash-up and meet up with other characters, teams
andpeople. It is a world of constant change where things are not what they seem. A combined world of TRANSFORMERS and Ghostbusters where heroic Autobots, evil Decepticons and now ghosts can be discovered!
The Ghostbusters have a new, out of this world teammate and fans will be able to meet the
all newTRANSFORMERS character ECTOTRON in his epic origin story by IDW Publishing. A brand new 5-part series from creative team Erik Burnham & Dan Schoening begins in June 2019 . TheECTO-1 ECTOTRON figure is available at GameStop starting Summer of 2019 and for pre-order starting February 15 atHasbroPulse.com, GameStop and EB Games Canada. And be on the lookout for other possible TRANSFORMERS and Ghostbusters items. When these two iconic franchises come together – anything is possible!
