Ecto-1 is now ECTOTRON: Ghostbusters car receives Cybertonian treatment

Hasbro has announced via their official Twitter account that Ecto-1, the beloved car from the “Ghostbusters” movies, is getting a Cybertronian makeover. Meet ECTOTRON!

Here’s the offical product description from the Gamestop page:

Transformers robots have always been More the Meets the Eye, but now, through the Transformers Collaborative, fans can experience these larger than life characters as they team-up, mash-up, and meet up with other characters, teams, and people who share this same special quality.

It is a world of constant change, where things are not what they seem. It is the world of the Transformers…and the Ghostbusters…a world of heroic Autobots and evil Decepticons…and ghosts!

Discover how these worlds collide in this Transformers-Ghostbusters mash-up pack! The iconic Ecto-1 Cadillac from the 1984 Ghostbusters movie is now a Transformers robot — a converting Paranormal Investigator, called Ectotron!

This Ectotron figure comes with his own Proton Pack accessory and a Slimer accessory, and converts between Ecto-1 and robot modes in 22 steps.

Here are more pictures from another tweet:

People are already asking for more crossovers with famous cars, including KITT from the “Knight Rider” TV show, which is a personal favorite of mine!
