“Cute” might not usually be the word that comes to mind when you think of the venerable ’80s flick Ghostbusters, but thanks to Hero Collector, it will now! The high-quality collectibles company is releasing a chibi-themed set of Ghostbusters goodies featuring the cutest little Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler, and Winston Zeddemore you’ve ever seen.
Pins, socks, T-shirts and more featuring all of your favorite parapsychologists and paranormal pests in chibi form will go on sale Friday, March 13.
You might not be wearing an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on your back, but donning these unique Ghostbusters tees will definitely switch on a conversation. T-shirts with your favorite movie quotes and adorable caricatures of beloved characters are sure to catch the attention of fellow Ghostbusters fans. (The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man may be smol, but he is angry.)
You’ll also find the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man on a pair of comfy socks, along with cute-yet-creepy Slimer and a shoutout for the Ecto-1. The collectible socks are 80 percent cotton.
But pin collectors will be the happiest with the Ghostbusters chibi collection thanks to the incredible amount of supernaturally cute options.
“The new range includes a whopping 19 all-new pin badge designs, including all four original Ghostbusters: Peter, Ray, Egon, and Winston, as well as Janine, Louis, and Dana,” says Hero Collector. “Their gear gets the same treatment, with the Fire House, the Ghost Trap, and four different Ecto-1 designs. And what would the Ghostbusters be without these six iconic ghosts—Slimer, the Library Ghost, Gozer, a Terror Dog, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Vigo the Carpathian!”
Yes, we used the word “cute” to describe Vigo the Carpathian. We’re as surprised as you are.
The Library Ghost is the scariest-looking of the chibi Ghostbusters pin set, but even the Terror Dog is a little bit lovable with that head tilt. But it’s the frazzled Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) pin that has won our hearts and begs to join our own ever-growing pin collections.
“These new Ghostbusters Chibi pin badges, socks, and t-shirts will all be exclusively available on the Hero Collector webstore on Friday, March 13, 2020—in addition to the Hero Collector’s range of Ghostbusters figurines,” says the company. “These special merchandise items and figurines are available for sale only in conjunction with the subscription series Build The Ecto-1.”
If you need even more Ghostbusters in your life, don’t forget to take a look at the trailer for the upcoming sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Egon Spengler’s grandchildren find more than they expected when they discover the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.
