In April we wrote about building a Ghostbusters bear. (GBI Blog Post, April 28, 2016) On Ghostbusters Day Nerdist had the exclusive (this is what can happen while interns get some mandatory training) with Build-A-Bear Ghostbusters product photos and additional information. While interns are training and probably rushing to get to work, we take a closer look.
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
This week, the first (Ghostbusters International Blog Post, March 3, 2016) Ghostbusters (2016) international (as in world, not the site) trailer was unveiled by Sony’s international branches and partners. At first sorta, as the Ukraine/Russia version wasn’t suppose to be out on the interwebs. It was taken down and if it hasn’t been released yet, it will be in due time. That didn’t stop ghostheads and other sites from taking screen caps. Why would we need more screen caps? This first international trailer featured additional footage. If you didn’t get a chance to view it and in case its also in other international trailers we won’t quite spoil it. Think Marvel’s Thor and concert venues.
While one of the largest continents on Earth re-await a Ghostbusters 2016 trailer in their languages, Sony Pictures Entertainment did officially release trailers for the UK and Australia. Continue reading

Columbia Pictures/Sony Pictures Digital Productions Inc. have redesigned Ghostbusters.com. The last major redesign was during GHOSTBUSTERS™ 30th anniversary in 2014.
Naturally the redesign highlights the upcoming Ghostbusters (2016) with standard cast and crew information. As of this posting, an in movie synopsis hasn’t been included. Perhaps after the first Ghostbusters (2016) trailer is released. Speaking of which, Paul Feig tweeted:
Last October I got around to talking about Ghostbusters confectionaries (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 13, 2015) that are only available to buy from the United Kingdom. One of the very few times having a kingdom that’s united may be better then having states that are united. How is a movie created by a Canadian, co-written by an American and another Canadian, and directed by a Canadian not allow us to have the same Ghostbusters candy? Someone really needs to invent better refrigeration technology and begin exporting.
About three months later, The Grocer, a UK website reported after New Years about a few food companies who are among the licensees for Ghostbusters (2016).
The Grocer quotes Rob Wijeratna from Rocket Licensing where he talks about the value of the Ghostbusters brand and how their are 23 UK licensees.

On January 12, 2016 Ghostbusters news site, Ghostbusters.net posted the above photo (Twitter) from a European trade show event. When these are in movie theater lobbies, fans can pose for a photo with the 2016 Ghostbusters. That’s neat and would have been cool during past Ghostbusters theatrical releases.
This future collectible wasn’t the only cool thing shown at Sony Pictures and Rocket Licensing trade show event. Continue reading
