We have produced a once-in-a-lifetime traveling art exhibit that features more than 70 artists creating original paintings, limited edition prints, sculptures and apparel inspired by the classic comedy. It all kicks off properly in New York City THIS SATURDAY NIGHT, from 7-10 PM at 69 Leonard St., near the famous firehouse from the film."

SHOW PRESS CONTINUED: "A majority of the artwork will ONLY BE AVAILABLE by attending one of the galleries in-person. A very small allotment of prints has been set aside for each city, with a smaller selection at our final Comic Con stop. This is the ONLY way to purchase this artwork. There will be small surprises at each stop as well.
A commemorative series of special 30th Anniversary screenprints WILL BE AVAILABLE in limited amounts ONLINE, in addition to in-store, at ghostbusters30th.com. These will be released sporadically over the next month. This set consists of prints from Mike Mitchell (poster), Phantom City Creative, Anthony Petrie, Tom Whalen, Tara McPherson, Dan Mumford, Dave Perillo, Lora Zombie, Godmachine, Rich Kelly (select cities), Mark Englert, DKNG and Joshua Budich. When purchasing online, please read terms & conditions CAREFULLY, as combined shipping will be offered.
We also will have very small amounts of collaborative t-shirts from LRG, Johnny Cupcakes, Homage & Rebel8 at each stop."

Erick Scarecrow sends word of the "secret release" of his "LVL-8 Camo Jungle" - currently available here for US$150 each. Limited to only 15pcs and sized 8-inches tall, Erick also mentioned; "This is actually the 3rd 8" release. The last time I released one of these was '08 or '09."
So the question would be: Is 3A Toys' CHOCO HUNTER TQ(A) Purchasable? Or (B) A Gift? … Although I reckon some fan might insist the sales of the piece might be a "gift" for folks … and of course (C) Would there be a "variant edition" if indeed it goes on sale?
Stay tuned for product availability details (if any), or go stake out Bambalandstore.com come Easter Friday April 18th and cross your fingers! :p
