IDW Transformers/Ghostbusters Mini-Series Features The New Ecto-1 Ectotron

by Olly MacNamee

With the announcement of a Transformers / Ghostbusters toy from Hasbro at this year’s ToyFair, IDW are following this up with their own news. That’s right, they’ll be publishing a Transformers / Ghostbusters comic book mini-series featuring the new transformable Ecto-1 Ectotron.

In the first chapter of the “Ghost of Cybertron” storyline, the Autobots – having escaped from the war that destroyed their home planet – trace a stray Cybertronian signal to the planet Earth. Investigating the otherworldly source will bring the Robots in Disguise face-to-face with the renowned professionals of paranormal investigation and elimination: Venkman, Spengler, Stantz, and Zeddmore!

It’s written and illustrated by the Ghostbusters creative team of Erik BurnhamDan Schoening, and Luis Antonio Delgado, and, features commenting covers, as you can see below. Look out for this new 5 parter this June.
