Let's kick part two of our vinyl revival off with a bang! Who doesn't love the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man? Well now you can have his adorable face adorn your vinyl record collection! Head over to the official Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary site to pre-order this collectible item. The Ghostbusters: Stay Puft Edition Super Deluxe Vinyl features both Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr. & the Ghostbusters rap by Run-DMC! As far as packaging and goodies go, the vinyl album itself is white with both tracks on side A and a smooth side B and also features the famous Ghostbusters logo in the center of the album. The gatefold jacket is puffy to simulate the feel of marshmallow and is also marshmallow scented! The inner packaging features a collage of the the Stay Puft Marshmallow man marching through New York City in photographs from the film. Also included with purchase are two 12" x 12" Stay Puft lenticular images from the film, one 12" x 12" Stay Puft motion lenticular image from the film, a complete set of Stay Puft Marshmallow Man facial expressions on unbound transparencies (with clear packaging), a 6 inch Stay Puft figurine, a certificate of authenticity. All of the items listed above make this package a steal at $58.98, especially for hardcore Ghostbusters fanatics. Head over to the Ghostbusters site by clicking here or the picture below and pre-order your vinyl Stay Puft Super Deluxe set, which ships on or before October 21st.
I just realized in the middle of grabbing that pic that the official Ghostbusters site has another sweet vinyl for sale. The Ghostbusters Glow-in-the-Dark vinyl retails at 16.98 and includes Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr. and some different dance mixes of the song as well.
Arguably the most iconic if not the most recognizable horror theme is the "Halloween Theme" composed by The Bowling Green Symphony Orchestra a.k.a. John Carpenter haha. This classic has been released on a vinyl 45 along with "Laurie Knows" as the B side by the Jack-O-Lantern Music Co. Head on over to the Halloween movies store and cough up your hard earned bucks to the tune of $14.99 and this baby will be shipped to your front door! By the way these are hand numbered orange translucent vinyl and are limited to 500 copies.
And finally, we have the Queen of Halloween herself making an appearance in our vinyl revival! Elvira has released two new songs titled 2 Big Pumpkins & 13 Nights of Halloween both of which will be featured on this vinyl record. The songs were written by songwriter Fred Schneider of the B-52s, so expect them to be super kooky and fun! As far as ordering goes, head over to Thirdman Records, which is the company supplying this 7" (45) on pugnacious purple vinyl as they're calling it. The packaging will also feature thermally active paint for a special surprise when warmed! For $8.00 you can own this piece of Halloween memorabilia however I would order sooner rather than later as everyone loves themselves some of Elvira's pumpkins so I expect these to go quick! Check out the packaging below and a video for a demo of the thermally active packaging.
In honor of National Ghostbusters Day (according to Sony Pictures), here is a fan made Lego Ghostbusters short that I think you'll find quite hilarious! The creator is MonsieurCaron, who also has plenty of other lego shorts available, including a behind the scenes vid for this particular short. By the way as you are watching the video, keep an eye out for plenty of referential jokes including a joke regarding the absence of a real Slimer mini-fig. According to an article over at Nerdist.com, MonsieurCaron mentions that because of the lack of a lego slimer, "I found someone else (who eats a lot) to fill in." Let me know what you think of the substitution down in the comments!
