While, of course, Ghostbusters is a great movie to watch any time of year, it seems appropriate to share a lineup of new Ghostbusters merch and events on the eve of the spookiest day of the year.
To start, fans can enjoy some Ghostbusters action in two popular video games this Halloweekend: Fortnite and Rocket League. In Fortnite‘s Fortnitemares event, players can find Ghostbusters-themed outfits, gear, and other accessories. In Rocket League, Ghostbusters is headlining the Haunted Hallows Event with event challenges that unlock themed vehicles, cosmetic items, and more.
On the merch front, Ghostbusters fans can finally shop for all their slime and Stay Puft must-haves in one convenient location: the Ghostbusters Official Online Store! This new site, managed by The Araca Group, has apparel, accessories, home goods, collectibles, and more inspired by the Ghostbusters movies, from companies including Hasbro, Funko, and Playmobil.
Finally, for those who may have put off their Halloween shopping to the last minute (or who want to get a VERY early start on shopping for next year), there are some great Ghostbusters inflatable decorations available from Gemmy, costumes and decor from Spirit Halloween, and costumes from Party City.
Looking ahead to next year, Jakks Pacific’s costume division, Disguise, will officially launch a Ghostbusters costume line. Fingers crossed that the collection includes items inspired by Ghostbusters: Afterlife — and that we actually get to see Afterlife by this time next year!
