Our DST contest from early this year.....

click the above title for the full story...

Hey all.  I wanted to take a moment to give a status update on our contest with Diamond Select Toys from November 2009.  A rep from DST contacted me back in late 2009 to run a contest with Ghostbusters prize packs.  Naturally, I accepted and assumed all would be well.  Unfortunately, through whatever circumstance, this rep left DST over the turn of the year and the prize packs were never sent to the five winners we selected.
 
I have since made contact with others from DST and been promised that the prize packs would be sent, but alas they still have not.  Its now six months later.  I hope to be able to resolve this with DST for the fans, but in the meantime I just wanted to let you all know what the situation was.  Its certainly not by my own choice and if it were up to me the fans would've had their loot many a month ago.  

Sorry for the mix-up.  Rest assured from now on we'll have any prizes in-hand before running a contest!

Ghostbusters Minimates hit Toys ‘R Us Again!


From the Art Asylum blog…
For those who missed out on the first 2 Ghostbusters Minimates waves, fear not, the boys are back in town and back in the aisles of Toys R Us.  Composed of the best 2 packs from Ghostbusters Wave 1 and 2.  (with a few tweaks), returning in time to catch you up before the next Ghostbusters’ waves hit stores.

The wave consists of Library Ghost and Egon, Slimed Peter and Slimer (Clear), Ray and Staypuft and Luis Tully with Slimer.    As a bonus, the Clear Slimer coming with Slimed Peter now features the floating food deco, intended but unavailable in the previous release.  Also due to popular request, Louis Tully now features the Ghostbusters Movie 2 accurate uniform with corrected name tag.   Stay tuned as more 2″ full torso block shaped apparitions of your favorite Ghostbusters characters continue to materialize in toy aisles

Hot Wheels Ecto-1 Hitting Shelves


The newest Hot Wheels wave featuring the Ecto-1 is hitting store shelves bit by bit.  You can find these on ebay for around $10, but I advise against buying them there.  A> Don’t feed scalpers B> These are mass market toys…they WILL show up eventually, just be patient.
