Yeah, this is going to be fantastic, isn't it?
Who you gonna call?
Optimus is not the Ray of the Autobots.
Gozer: The choice has been made.
(The entire cast of Breastforce appears as giants)
I haven't followed Botbots much after picking up a couple, the plastic is just too tough for my buddies 7 y/o to transform alone. Does anyone know though if there are any that would be easily painted/stickered into a Ghost Trap?
If there isn't there should be!

Giant incongruously ebullient Wheelie eye peers through hole in wall at soon-to-be-victims.
nobody is forcing you to read this thread or the upcoming miniseries. if you dont like it then dont partake, but dont try to spoil other peoples enjoyment with your pessimism
Mecha terror-dog toys now please. Make it a pretool for a new horri-bull.
I was thinking Sinnertwin would work fairly well for Zuul and Vinz. Maybe some resculpted detail and a new head. Would scale well with Chromia or T30 Arcee as Traveler.
Or maybe a heavy Elita-1 retool. You could have the Traveler, Vinz Clortho, Zuul, and two ghosts as a combiner with a Staypuft head.
While others have noted that the proton beam is an effective weapon against non-ghosts...
These covers seem awfully TF heavy for a crossover.
No ghosts except Slimer? I doubt that. My guess is about half the Transformers pictured here will get an extra coloring pass to be ghosts or possessed by ghosts in the final version.
Trans-Busters. Wait. wait. what?
well I mean, it depends who "owns" it, since in a crossover, sometimes a company asks to be part of it, and the company they ask controls how much the characters appear for. This might be Hasbro owned so they just focus on the brand more.
(I mean, ghostbusters atm seems a lot smaller than Transformers, so they might have asked Hasbro to do this.)
Perfect! That's more like it.
I'm allowed to express myself; even moreso when more information is made available to validate my position. Don't like it- don't read my post.
This is the most amazing thing in history.
Even then, the name “Ghosts of Cybertron” implies ghost transformers. The Ghostbusters need a problem to get involved and it almost certainly involves either undead Transformer spirits or possessed Transformers.
Regardless of who “owns” it, Hasbro would certainly want it to milk areas of Transformers lore that might be a tougher sell otherwise.
But regarding Starscream: If we go with the “mutant spark” theory, maybe TFTM wasn’t his first death! Maybe he was “undead” before that!
No idea as much like you I'm not buying those, but I love your thinking.
Starscream is shown as a ghost in one of the preview covers that have been shown off.
LOL this looks funny. But I do wish they created some better design for Gozer than just Chromia with glitter on.
I wish I could get excited about this, but I lost faith in IDW... heck, comic books in general many years ago. I find myself reading comics from the 80ies/90ies far more often than new ones where they reboot every 2 years or kill off characters for shock value, or have to end every damn issue on a cliffhanger and get lost in pointless drama (I am looking at you, Roberts). And I checked out IDW's Ghostbusters crossover and was less than interested. I assume the same people will be writing this?
Yeah for a ghostbusters comic, that cover is really light on ghosts. Slimer and Starscream cannot be the only one...
Also it does not make much sense for this cover in general, half of these Bots and Cons died or disappeared in the 1986 movie - I assume if it tries to do Starscream's ghost, it has to follow the movie where he died. Would make more sense if Ironhide or Prowl or Brawn would also be ghosts on the cover. Heck at first I thought Astrotrain was a ghost only to realize the artist used the same translucent effect to show off transformation...
You could easily sticker up Slappyhappy the ruler into a ghost trap.She is even partially open in the middle, just add a green glow sticker there!
