#Ghostbusters: 2016 Uniform & Proton Pack Reveal and Vinyl Idolz #SDCC2015 Exclusives from Vinyl Sugar
Director Paul Feig tweeted new uniforms and proton-pack pics of his upcoming new GHOSTBUSTERS movie featuring an all-female cast (which includes Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones), for which Latino-Review reports;
"The film is a remake of director Ivan Reitman’s 1984 comedy classic, Feig’s take on the property is said to be targeting a scarier tone that will not maintain any continuity with the original film or its 1989 sequel. Sony's "Ghostbusters" reboot is slated for a July 22, 2016 release date. "

Meanwhile, folks who long for the "classics" could either procure the DVDs (I have) or BluRays … OR purchase the following Vinyl Idolz figures exclusive to the coming San Diego Comic Con (look for them at the Funko booth :p) - featuring "Dr. Peter Venkman", "Raymond Stantz" and "Egon Spengler"! It is my ardent wish to own them, but alas no money no toy honey, and I touch the laptop screen gently at the images instead … *man-tear*
