When you're trying to spotlight an artist like Ale Giorgini, it's difficult to figure out what to focus on. He's done so much great stuff built on so many themes, from minimalist portraits of celebrities (a roster that includes both Charlie Brown and David Lynch) to pairing off some of cinema's greatest couples in a series called "That's Amore," and it's all worth seeing.
In the end, though, it was the pieces inspired by some of my favorite movies that hooked me, full of sleepy-eyed characters from The Big Lebowski, Ghostbusters, The Goonies and more.
Listen. I love cars from movies. Yeah, I know, you all prefer horses or brisk walking or canoes, but me? I'm an iconoclast, baby. I like cars, and I don't care who knows it. Whether it's ECTO-1 from Ghostbusters or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Party Wagon or even one of those ridiculous murder machines from Death Race 2000, sweet rides are some of my favorite parts of pop culture. And fortunately, artist Ido Yehimovitz feels the same way.
Ectoplasmic entities have much to fear from the toy world this year. Not only is LEGO introducing a massive new Ghostbusters set sometime in 2014, but Funko is rolling out a full line of 3.75" Pop! Vinyl figures. This May, an initial Ghostbusters lineup of Egon Spengler, Raymond Stantz and Peter Venkman will be busting a Slimer (with a righteous translucent base), plus an extra-tall 6" Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
It was only a couple of days ago that we mentioned the campaign to get a full Wayne Manor/Batcave set produced by LEGO's Cuusoo program, and today, everyone's favorite building block manufacturers have announced what they're actually going to be putting into production. Following up on their Back to the Future DeLorean, we're going to be seeing a 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters set, complete with the Firehouse, ECTO-1 and the four Ghostbusters themselves!
Check out the reveal of the winner and a few pictures of the original submission below!
There's plenty strange in the neighborhood this time of year and it looks like somebody in San Diego knew just who to call. A replica of the Ghostbusters' ride, The Ecto-1, was spotted tooling around SD's Gaslamp District today, the official first full day of Comic-Con. At least we assume it's a replica? Yelp says this city is ridiculously haunted, so maybe some cosplayers have started packing something closer to functioning proton packs? Or maybe these guys bought the modified 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance limo on eBay? Whatever the case, the guy at the wheel seemed quite happy to be cruising for spectres. See what you think by checking out a bigger image after the cut.
