Second only to Toy Fair back in February, this past weekend's San Diego Comic-Con brought us more toy news than our wallets can reasonably take. Many of the reveals were only available on the convention floor, but there will still plenty of announcements you can look forward to as we creep closer to the holidays. That's right, July isn't even over but it's already time to start assembling those Christmas lists.

Oh, sweet spirit. On the one hand, we have Dan Aykroyd being extremely negative about Paul Feig's Ghostbusters. On the other we have Ivan Reitman being extremely positive about what he'd like to do with the Ghostbusters franchise in the future. Neither of them make much sense, but there's something much nicer about Reitman's view.
The Stranger Things kids were already adorable enough. But now they're dressed up in Ghostbusters costumes for Halloween and I don't think anyone could be adequately prepared for just how cute it actually is.
First teased back in June of last year, we got our first official photos of some of the new Playmobil Ghostbusters sets a little later in the year in October. But as the toys move closer to finally being available come May of this year, Playmobil is revealing all of the details at the Nuremberg International Toy Fair that gets underway this week. But why wait when we've got everything you need to know right now?
A surprising DC hero and villain meet for lunch. Spider-Man's Tom Holland puts in an unexpected mask in an unexpected place. Plus, a clue about the future of Ghostbusters, the DC/CW names the Legion of Doom and The Librarians continues to delight us with its insanity. Our stockings were stuffed with spoilers, and we're happy to share!
Back in June, it was revealed that for the first time ever, Playmobil planned to branch out from its normal historical and generic toys with sets featuring characters and vehicles from popular movies, starting with the Ghostbusters. A few months later we finally have our first look at a few of those playsets, confirming that this was a very, very good idea.
Remember the brilliant Star Wars Snowspeeder costume that Ryan Scott Miller built around his son's wheelchair last Halloween? He's already managed to top himself a year later by now turning Jeremy's wheelchair into a miniature version of the Ghostbusters' Ecto-1. This kid is getting so many lollies.
Director Paul Feig once said that his original cut for this year's Ghostbusters was four and a half hours long, which he then cut down to a "slim three and a half hours". In the end, the movie was 114 minutes, but the extended cut (available on DVD and Blu-ray on October 12, available in digital form now) has added 15 minutes of extra moments. Is it worth it? That depends on how much dancing you like.
I thought we were past this but apparently not. Now that Paul Feig's Ghostbusters film is coming to digital and Blu-ray next month, reports have started to circulate that the title has suddenly been changed. This isn't true — mainly because the film's real title was Ghostbusters: Answer the Call even before it was released.
