For the second straight year Mattel had a lot to show off at the New York Comic Con. Among their usual assortment of figurines and show exclusives was a peak of the latest addition to their collection of Ghostbusters equipment. To go along with the PKE meter and ghost trap, you will soon be able to get your hands on the goggles from the movie! Mattel did another great job recreating the classic look and you can expect to see them available sometime next year.
Here are some more pictures from Mattel’s display including DC, WWE, Masters of the Universe, Ghostbusters and the hoverboard from Back to the Future 2:
Back to the Future fans have been getting treated to all kinds of goodies lately. The Blu-ray collection was released, a video game was developed, and Marty’s Nike Mag sneakers were put up for auction. Well now we can add two more things to the revival.
First is the Hoverboard by Mattel. MattyCollector.com did a great job with its revision of the Masters of the Universe line, and previously made a replica on the Delorean for the San Diego Comic Con. Now they are stepping their game up with a full scale prop repilca. For $120 bucks you can get this glorified plastic board with all the bells and whistles from the movie (including “whooshing sound”). This is one of those items my wife and I will have a heated debate over purchasing.
While the Hoverboard is available through retail, the flying Delorean is a home made project. Some people in Russia put their heads together and made an RC Model flying Delorean (with lights for night time travel). I’m not sure if it runs on garbage or plutonium, but I am sure that it’s awesome. They released a video showing some development shots along with it in action. Check it out (Thanks to Krister for bringing it to my attention):
