Blitzway Knows Who You Gonna Call To Preorder Their Sixth Scale ECTO-1 From Ghostbusters AfterlifeJose Lopez
Like many collectors, I passed on the original Blitzway Sixth Scale ECTO-1 Vehicle, based on the iconic car from the first Ghostbusters film. And like most collectors, I regretted that decision every day after that original release sold out. Well, it looks like we all get a second chance as Blitzway has announced the preorder for an updated 1:6 scale ECTO-1 from the Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel film.
First of all, just like the original, this thing is absolutely massive. 40-inches long, this vehicle is sure to give any collector a run for their money when it comes to finding a home for this big boy. The major differences between this and the ECTO-1 from the 1984 film are the paint scheme and some additions, such as the gunner seat and a hatch to launch out the included R.T.V.
While that clean, pristine take is filled with nostalgia for me, I have to admit that I like this weathered version more. The bumps and nicks and dirt bring out the sculpt of this amazing vehicle, giving me even more to appreciate than ever.
With a giant-sized collectible comes a giant-sized price tag. This ECTO-1 is priced around $1700 USD, which is definitely an intimidating amount of cash for a Sixth Scale piece. That said, if there’s even a small part of you that wants this thing, get it and get it now. You will regret passing on this work of art. Learn from my mistakes and preorder.
The Blitzway Ghostbusters: Afterlife ECTO-1 Sixth Scale Vehicle is available for preorder now and is scheduled for release in Q1, 2023.
