Hey this guy made a cameo in the Goldbergs posing as an 1980's toy,
Yes they tried to put a modern toy in a show that takes place in the 80s
It made me unreasonably annoyed and bothered

Ecto-1 Ectotron Figure Cameos in Goldbergs TV Show

Motto: "I-I'm sorry.. I-I'll be going now.."
Weapon: No Weapon
Seibertron member TrypticonCarne has linked us up to a Youtube video of newly revealed Generations Collaborative: Ghostbusters Ectotron's cameo in the TV show Goldbergs episode, "There Can Be Only One Highlander Club". Despite the glaring error of being 3 decades out of time, its an interesting plug for a sub-line toy like Ectotron and it gives us a good chance at seeing the actual scale of the toy. The video is viewable below, but can also be found on Ian Jone's Youtube.



You can view his reveal from our NY Toy Fair coverage here.

Has seeing this toy “in hand” (quite literally) pumped you up for is release or has the size put you off? Let us know what your thoughts are on this figure here at the Energon Pub on Seibertron.com!

eh, just as fake as everything else that tries to be 80s and retro I suppose. Not sure how they got one that early (meaning now before the release date, not 30 years ago as portrayed in the clip :P ) or why not just use an actual G1 toy? Maybe I'm missing the point of the video. I dunno.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

I think they would have just used an old G1 toy... If Hasbro hadn't asked them for a product placement ;)

I'm still just so happy this is a thing. It has me so filled with joy, and it's got the Ghostbusters theme running through my head now!

ya know, now I really want him to fit in the MP-10 Trailer so he can go with the MP-10/Ghostbusters crossover MP coming later this year

Especially considering there is a G1 Prime sitting on shelves right now and Optimus is always 100% recognizable. Non fans might even think that's a fake toy.

I've never heard of this show, but then again I haven't watched commercial TV in 10 or more years.

Huh. The bio even teasingly mentions the fact he's a Hotspot remould. That's kind of clever.

I also want to extend my congratulations to Johnny216, who designed this character based on Cybertron Red Alert way back in 2005:

Image

As thrilled as I am to see this (I never did end up making a custom based on Johnny's art), I really don't like the black knees and excess amount of white on Ectotron. The 'Busters don't wear kneepads, only elbowpads (and they're grey, no less), and if they just wanted to evoke the white military belt of the 'Busting suits, they could've just painted Ectotron's belt area in white.

Also, anyone seen the robot mode's pack? He's supposed to have some kind of Proton Pack accessory, but it just looks like the rooftop equipment rack ends up there. Has it been sculpted to have a cyclotron, or do they mean he just comes with a neutrona wand?

But the point isn't for Transformers product placement, it's for this specific figure. Then they can turn around and when this figure shows up at Gamestop they can advertise it as "as seen on the Goldbergs!" if they choose. And really, any transformer could have been used, but using one that came totally out of left field like Ectotron is something that will get people searching for info, a figure people have seen a million times isn't going to do that. They may not know if it's real, but they're definitely going to want to see for themselves. It's good advertising for the whole franchise.

The show itself is a deliberately anachronistic 1980s.

They addressed the Death of Optimus Prime in 1986 4 years ago and it’s not set in the 90s now.

In fact — and I’m not even a close follower of the show — I’m pretty sure that they cited deliberate anachronism as part of the show early on. They’ve referenced 80s events out of sequence, apparently intentionally. They’ve both indicated a desire to troll people about period accuracy and said that the show could go on for any length of time and still be set in the 80s.

A child could be conceived at the Ghostbusters premiere, grow up to watch Caddyshack in college, and die an old man at the premiere of Back to the Future.

It’s a fantasy universe where, effectively, it’s always been the 80s, will always be the 80s, things happen out of sequence, modern 80s nostalgia products (including t-shirts and toys) show up.

I don’t think this is sloppy. I do think it’s deliberate trolling on about three levels.

Why wait until Gamestop, they're doing it right on the front page of Pulse.

And yeah, it's back up for pre-order, but at the Gamestop price of $49.99.

That's weird, I swear I saw it back up at the original $39.99 yesterday. Still a pass for me at either price. If it was CW compatible that would be another story.

The price of this guy has been all over the place. On monday, Gamestop had pre-order prices down to $37.49 before rising back up today when Pulse put pre-orders back up. I think I'm gonna keep my Gamestop pre-order honestly, never used them before, but there's a first time for everything

Gamestop is fine, been using them for years for game related things. We could start another thread on their trade-in and used game price practices though.

I have a feeling the patient among us will be able to pick up Ectotron from GS at a discount.

New In-Hand Images - Transformers x Ghostbusters Ectotron

Postby D-Maximal_Primal » Thu Apr 18, 2019 6:13 pm

Motto: "There are no impossibilities in the multiverse, just small minds unable to comprehend the possibilities"
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
Thanks to YellaWolf Studios Product Photography, we have a bunch of new in-hand images of the upcoming Transformers x Ghostbusters exclusive Ectotron figure! Ectotron is a brand new character that transforms into Ecto-1, the classic Ghostbusters car of choice. He has engineering inspired by the Combiner Wars Hot Spot mold, though he has a bunch of unique tricks and parts to his toy.

He features a Proton Pack like back with the equipment from the top of the Ecto-1 car mode, and he also includes an awesome green Slimer figure to go with him. He is currently up for pre-order at Hasbro Pulse for $49.99, and is due out at the end of July.

Check out the images below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Ectotron looks great in both modes. Based on a good mold, good recreation of Ecto-1 in car mode and appropriate accessory! If I can find him in Canada I'll be very tempted to get them at MSRP. Not gonna have another chance for a TFxGB crossover toy at this quality (looking at you MP10 redeco).
