  1. Not to bring up the BluRay discussion again (but I'm gonna) but I bet Ghostbusters is gonna look great!

    I'm guessing that the poster is either Megatron or "The Fallen" which to the best of my knowledge many have speculated as being a character in the upcoming film.


  2. Regardin the RotF poster, someone over at mentioned how it bears a resemblance to the Decepticon faction symbol.

    @Matthew: Heh… nice! So much cheesy '80s gooeyness is going to come from these figures!

  3. I can't wait for the Ghostbusters game.

    And I think it's safe to say I'd enjoy Ghostbusters on Blu-ray, but I don't really ever need to own or see 2 in high def.
