Hasbro announced a new Ecto-1 inspired Transformers figure based on the design of the iconic Ghostbusters vehicle in the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife. The new Afterlife version of Ectotron, the ghost-busting Autobot, includes a Slimer and Masher ghost figures, as well as a “Transformers Ghostbusters Ghosts of Cybertron” comic by IDW Publishing.
This isn’t the first version of Ectotron released by Hasbro: an earlier version was based on the design from the 1984 original movie. The updated version for Afterlife features a new head-sculpt with “updated Ecto-Goggles” inspired by the movie. Ectotron’s specs have also been updated for the new movie, to highlight his “strength, speed, and bust-abilty.”

Ectotron will be a Target exclusive, and preorders for the figure go live today at 1:00PM ET with a $49.99 MSRP.
This is the second iteration of the Ecto-1/Ectotron Transformer figure, and it joins the Top Gun: Maverick Transformer announced earlier this year, as well as the Back to the Future Transformer Gigawatt.
