    I’m just speculating but whereas Ecto-35 and Ectotron were one off special deals...

    Hasbro has the master license for Ghostbusters in 2020.

    Which IMHO opens the door for several things:

    Nerf items.
    Ghostbusters ML or Black Series scaled figures. (Which one, though?)
    Vintage Kenner reissues. (Hasbro owns Kenner.)
    An actual Transformers line.
    D&D campaign module.
    Magic The Gathering sets.
    Assorted board games. (CLUE might be fun; who let Mr. Body’s ghost OUT of the containment unit?)

    Given the general success of TFs and given the obvious Ecto-1A redeco of Ectotron as well as the existence of other vehicles (2016 Ecto-1, Ecto 2, CHUG Ecto-35) and ghosts (Starscream being one), I can see a line.

    I doubt it. Ecto Prime only sold because he was an exclusive and Ectotron turns into the iconic alt mode, which made him actually popular. I don't see any other figures doing well.

    Something related to Afterlife seems like a possibility.

    Ghost of Starcscream or GTFO.

    Translucent Earthrise figure with Ghostbusters branded packaging. Easy. That way I'd consider actually getting that mold.

    Hmmm, MP-Version of Ectotron would be nice with lights and sounds!

    I'd be in for that one!

    the ectotron we got more or less is the mp version. it was made to scale with mp-10. also more figures are possible as there was a tease of a 2nd miniseries at the end of ghosts of cybertron
