Since its reveal a few months back, fans of both Transformers and Ghostbusters have been patiently waiting for this little number, the EctoTron. While Transformers crossovers aren’t completely unique (we wrote an article about the unique ones we saw at TF-Con this year, some fan made and some officially licensed), this Ghostbusters Ecto-One-Tron is one that we’re very excited to see! (Though reports of the Ghostbusters-Prime has us pretty tingly as well).
This sexy little number is available for preorder now from Hasbro Pulse with an MSRP of $49.99 and is due out July 29th, 2019. However, in an interesting turn of events, fans in Canada have begun seeing this tasty crossover slipping onto shelves early with an MSRP of $59.99 CAD.
This isn’t a huge surprise in the toy world, considering what happened in Canada with the (significantly early) release of the new Hasbro Power Rangers toys at Canadian Toys R Us shops. Perhaps Hasbro has something going on with the Canadian toy and retail market. Regardless, this toy is available to find in Canada with an early street date; I’d be curious to hear about the build quality by people lucky enough to hold it in their hands.
