Site News: GBI Is Across Your Cities

gbiglaskynoghost

Written By: Richard Roy, Creative Guy (Unsure of what my job title is.)

Ghostbusters International and an affiliated franchise are most likely already in your city. And easily accessible through your internet or telecommunications provider. As its been a number of years since GBI as a company and club has had a domain name, the time is right for GBI to not just have a dot wordpress dot com url.

It’s 2020, twenty twenty. Let that sink in. The GHOSTBUSTERS™ franchise celebrates it’s 36th anniversary by welcoming a continuation and a sequel of the original films with Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Obligatory plug: Coming to theaters on July 10, 2020. Directed by Jason Reitman. And all a new Ghostbusters film will bring to ghostheads.

I’ve wanted GBI to have a new domain name, it had to be the “right one.” And personally it had to feel right as well. I didn’t need to just celebrate the 35th anniversary by also having a domain name again for GBI.

This year it’s better early on to have a new domain name for Ghostbusters International, for Ghostbusters: Afterlife premiere, theatrical releases, and home video releases. With that, in digital text Ghostbusters International new dot com is:

Funko Vinyl Idolz Peter Venkman

vnylsugarpresentsvinylidolz

Funko, a slightly smaller evil corporation and Vinyl Sugar, (Twitter) a large evil corporation got together to come up with Vinyl Idolz. What is a Vinyl Idolz? Are one of their employees from JerZey? 😀

From Vinyl Sugar

Vinyl Sugar is the illegitimate love child between Funko and some of the best free-wheeling designers from the back streets of London, the boutiques of Harajuku, and the galleries in NYC. Vinyl Sugar – because you crave it!

With the first teaser image Vinyl Sugar shows us a doc, a dude, and a buster. Specifically Dr. Venkman. All 3(D) figures appear to have a caricature type look. Which certainly works well for Dr. Venkman.

We don’t know when they’ll be available for retail. They should be on display at next month’s New York Toy Fair.

Radio Controlled Ghostbusters Available Now

At last years New York Toy Fair we wrote about World Tech Toys. An electronic toy company known for licensing popular characters and basically adding a radio controlled helicopter element. It wasn’t clear in February how World Tech Toys could make sense of making Ghostbusters action figures fly. We also still don’t know if they completely created new action figures for this feat. Less then a year later three of the four Ghostbusters, Slimer, and Stay-Puft are ready for take off. Continue reading “Radio Controlled Ghostbusters Available Now”
