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).

Not sure where else to post this, but I was browsing a UK seller called TFS-Express and they had a listing for "Transformers Ghostbusters MP-10" with a picture?

Not sure if this has been talked about already or not.

First I've seen it, really want it, looks like it's out of stock. UGH. This would have been awesome for mass release.

Video review from Optibotimus:



Fascinating to see he shares engineering with CW Voyager Hotspot. Had they gone the combiner route, they could have used Ecto 2 & 3 form the Real Ghostbusters animated series, and Ecto 4 & 5 from the comics. ;)

This was something teased last September with plans to come out this year, but we haven't had any images of it yet.

I'm wondering if that is a real image of MP-10, considering that pricepoint is nowhere near what an MP-10 mold figure should cost. I'm hoping it's real and not a KO false listing or digibash of some sort

:WRECKERS: There is a lot of Ghostbusters crossover news this week. Firstly we have a video review from Tonton for Ectotron. Many fans sent us this info, the first was
Powermaster Ultra Prime. You can now see if the toy is worth your time and money. Also, we have our possible first image of the MP10 Ghostbusters Optimus Prime. The image seems more like something done digitally than the real thing though the real question is if it is an image from an actual source or not. The listing is from TFs-Express and they are currently asking for a 50 pound deposit. This was the first site to list the reissue of MP09 Rodimus.



UPDATE: The image below is indeed a fan made digibash used as a stand in image for a real listing.

You can tell the Prime is a digibash, mostly from the legs. Not sure if they are just giving us an idea of the toy, or if it is fake, but that's certainly not the original colors when the photo was taken.

Oh man, the roof hardware transforms into a proton pack? Genius! Totally unexpected! So glad I have this on preorder from GameStop.

Reprolabels, do your stuff!

Most likely a digibash, found this after searching for the image.

Hey all how about actually reading the article where it says right there it’s a fan digibash

All I want want out of the comic series is for Optimus to say, in a serious voice, “I am not afraid of any supernatural beings.” Please.

it REALLY looks like those knees should be able to lock in place, just like onslaught and hotspot did. you remember, the weird double-bend-click-in deal they had.

I'd like to know how reviewers have guys like Ectotron and MPM Megs 3-5 months before their release

They're getting factory seconds from overseas sellers.

It's been a long wait, and some even thought it was a myth, but we could now have our first look at the Ghostbusters Transformers Collaborative MP-10 Optimus Prime figure! Photos come via the @TFCLUB Transformers Alliance on Weibo and a tip from fellow Seibertronian Jtprime17. The figure, called the "Ecto 35 Edition", is a white and black version of Optimus Prime with red details and green windows. He comes with a very elaborately decorated trailer that acts as a Ghostbusters advertisement. Most interesting off all is Roller now doubles as a Ghost Trap thanks to an added part, how cool is that? He also comes with a painted Slimer figure. It's hard to tell, but there might be a Proton Pack sitting on top of the trailer.
