There are IR sensors and emitters on each character that shoot an IR beam. Each character gets three lives in the air, which are displayed by the LED indicator light…

Ghostbusters Helicopters are Coming!

ghostbusters-helicopters

We were going to post this anyway today but on the news of the death of Harold Ramis, it seems appropriate. At the Toy Fair we got a sneak peak of this cool new Ghostbuster toy that is coming out next Fall from World Tech Toys.

It’s Ghostbuster mini r/c helicopters! What you see in the photo is still in the prototype stages- the final paint scheme is not even approved yet (you can see Slimer’s colors in the smaller model). There will be one chopper for each of the Ghostbusters (coincidentally the only figure they had on display was Ramis’ character Egon), as well as Slimer, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and even the Ecto-1 car! Each figure has a little helicopter blade atop their head and is remote controlled. RIP Harold Ramis.

New York Toy Fair: Ghostbusters Radio Controlled Helicopters

World Tech Toys, makers of radio controlled cars, trucks, helicopters, and licensed figures were at New York Toy Fair to let us all know what they’re planning when it comes to Ghostbusters. I didn’t know much about World Tech Toys before seeing the above (Instagram) image.

I admit it seems a little odd (which would then be right for Ghostbusters) to have helicopter blades attached to a human figure. That’s part of what they’re already known for, having radio controlled DC Comics hero and villain figures. With Ghostbusters the only in movie universe figure that makes literal sense is Slimer.

We don’t know yet, hopefully they’ll be making an RC ECTO-1. They probably can’t with my other idea, the perfect licensed RC helicopter would be the ECTO-2 from The Real Ghostbusters.

The images World Tech Toys used at NYTF for the “planning” stage appear to be from their Matty Collector collection. I wasn’t the first to make that instant impression.

What do you think, would you buy an RC Ghostbuster and/or Slimer?
