Next up, the guys at Playmates revealed a crossover of epic, even biblical proportions at the Ghostbusters will be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in these four epic Target exclusives:

And, while these are very cool, i’d just like it to be known that I did this long before these figures were announced (about two years before, actually), but i’m not bitter. Honest:

Next we have the beautiful 1/6 Ecto 1 from Blitzway, expected near the end of 2018:

And it will go wit these:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
