All-New ‘Transformers’ And ‘Ghostbusters’ Crossover Series Announced. Here’s What’s Happening

An all-new comic book series is set to bring together a few iconic franchises from the ’80s, with the Transformers and the Ghostbusters mashing up in a crossover event. This has been revealed by io9. IDW Entertainment is now ready to release the five-issue comic book series from Dan Schoening, Luis Antonio Delgado and Erik Burnham.

This website has described the upcoming series as,

“When the Transformers pick up on a strange Cybertronian signal emanating from Earth, they travel to the planet only to discover that the threat waiting for them there is something that Venkman, Spengler, Stantz, and Zeddemore are perfectly suited to help them take on.”

“1984 was a seismic shift for entertainment, the year that launched both Transformers and Ghostbusters,” the IDW Editor-in-Chief, John Barber,  had said.

“Back then, Little John Barber was right there for Transformers and a little scared of Ghostbusters—but now, I’m a bit braver and can’t wait to see the two worlds collide.”

Luckily for us, this is not the only crossover between Transformers and Ghostbusters that we can enjoy, as Hasbro had recently revealed that it is set to deliver a figure which depicts the iconic vehicle the Ecto-1 as a shape-shifting robot.

Hasbro has described this all-new figure as,

“Transformers robots have always been More the Meets the Eye, but now, through the Transformers Collaborative, fans can experience these larger than life characters as they team-up, mash-up, and meet up with other characters, teams, and people who share this same special quality. It is a world of constant change, where things are not what they seem. It is the world of the Transformers…and the Ghostbusters…a world of heroic Autobots and evil Decepticons…and ghosts!”

“Discover how these worlds collide in this Transformers-Ghostbusters mash-up pack! The iconic Ecto-1 Cadillac from the 1984 Ghostbusters movie is now a Transformers robot — a converting Paranormal Investigator, called Ectotron! This Ectotron figure comes with his own Proton Pack accessory and a Slimer accessory, and converts between Ecto-1 and robot modes in 22 steps.”

The newest entry into the Transformers series of movies, Bumblebee had received the highest critical praise. Now, a third movie in the original Ghostbusters franchise is set to land by theatres next year, helmed by Jason Reitman.

“I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan when I was a six-year-old visiting the set. I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans,” Reitman had said.

“This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ‘80s happened in the ‘80s, and this is set in the present day.”

He had then added.,

“This is very early, and I want the film to unwrap like a present. We have a lot of wonderful surprises and new characters for the audience to meet.”
