If you’ve wondered sometime since ghostheads have known Ghostbusters (2016) was in production with a July 2016 release date if GHOSTBUSTERS would also return to screens; wonder no more.

Entertainment Weekly (EW) wrote today GHOSTBUSTERS will be returning to theaters (limited engagement) this June.

Build A Ghostbusters Bear

If you know me or even visited my personal blog, iRich you know I own at least one Curious George plush. Thanks to the Reys, my mom, a Jersey shore boardwalk, childhood, and probably Gund I’ve owned a handful of Curious George plushes. My original Curious George (since I had from 9 months old) stitching could no longer hold. I’ve probably been traumatized since 1985. The one pictured over at iRich became a replacement about the same time.

What does the Curious One and this Build-A-Bear story have do with one another? If you’re familiar with Build-A-Bear, you already know besides “outfits” for plushes with hearts, at Halloween adults and kids can buy costumes for their personal bears.

In the past as I would see military “flight suits” at there stores I thought if they sold a khaki flight suit (without patches) I could make a Ghostbusters uniform for Curious George. At some point the idea drifted into imagination.

It hasn’t been thought of in years, until yesterday. When Ghostbusters of Upstate NY saw this. Continue reading “Build A Ghostbusters Bear”

Canadian Best Buys To Release Ghostbusters Steelbooks

cabestbuygbsteel.jpg

For some reason electronics and entertainment retailer Best Buy (US) really likes Steel Books. The steel bound “hard” covers cases that protect in recent years Blu-Rays. Almost always (at least in the US) a movie exclusive for Best Buy is a steelbook version.

It isn’t a surprise that Best Buy will have exclusive steel book versions for both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II when they’re reissued from Sony Pictures Entertainment. Kinda surprising, (as far as we know) these Ghostbusters/II steel books are exclusive to Canadian Best Buy locations.

As of this evening Best Buy’s site within the US doesn’t have photos for the new, upcoming releases. With artwork like above and below the read more, our neighbors to the north display the photos like fine art.

If your country (or region) will also have exclusive Ghostbusters steel books, please let us know in the comments.
