Mighty Meeples: Ghostbusters Collection to Be Released by Cryptozoic Based on Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Classic Film Ghostbusters

Tin Depicts Iconic Vehicle from Original Ghostbusters Films and Stores the Included Six Ghostbusters Mighty Meeples Figures

 

Lake Forest, CA – February 1, 2017 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, today announced this week’s release of the Mighty Meeples: Ghostbusters Collection.

The tin resembles the Ecto-1, the iconic vehicle belonging to the Ghostbusters, and provides a stylish home for the six included Mighty Meeples figures, all depicting characters from the original 1980s Ghostbusters films. The five 1-inch figures feature heroes Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore, as well as popular paranormal antagonist Slimer. The sixth figure, portraying the enormous villain Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, is appropriately larger, standing 2.5 inches tall. The Mighty Meeples can be collected for display or can replace pieces in any board game to upgrade the experience.

First appearing over 15 years ago, the “meeple”—short for “my people”—possesses a distinctive shape that has made it a popular choice for player pieces in a variety of games. Cryptozoic increases the fun with Mighty Meeples that are oversized (regular meeples are usually .75 inches) and portray some of the most famous characters in popular culture.

The Mighty Meeples: Ghostbusters Collection will be available at retailers nationwide starting February 1 for a suggested retail price of $14.99.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
