More Love From The Cross The Streams Podcast

Excerpt from Episode 17 (July 19, 2011)

Matt Prov and Brendan Mertens over at the Ghostheads podcast released their 17th episode last week, and they mentioned Spook Central's and Ghostbusters News' mention in Hustler's This Ain't Ghostbusters XXX Rave Reviews press release. Coincidentally... or not... Jason Fitzsimmons from Ghostbusters News was on the show, along with Fernando Hernandez from the Long Island Ghostbusters, Sam Swope and Brandon Carnahan from the Steel City Ghostbusters and Brock Parker from the Alabama Ghostbusters.

From 30:53 to 31:58 the discussion is made of the joint mention by Hustler, with Jason being asked to explain how he found out about it. Jason tells how he was trolling the internet for Marsupilami porn while downing a case of long-expired Ecto-Cooler, which lead to him stumbling upon the article on AVN's site. Just kidding...just kidding!!! It's a much more boring story than that. But I couldn't have filled up this paragraph if I just said he found it on Google while looking for Ghostbusters news :-)

Anyway, you can listen to the Spook Central/Ghostbusters News excerpt by clicking on the little play arrow/button above, though if you have a desire to hear about lots of other interesting topics, head over to the Cross The Streams site to listen to the entire 42-minute episode - if for no other reason than to listen to the amazing Macho Man Randy Savage tribute quote-a-thon from 37:58 to the end of the show. Thanks Brendan for the heads-up.

Extreme Ghostbusters Garrett Miller Toy Prototype

PermalinkBy Paul Rudoff on Jul. 17, 2011 at 10:17 AM , Categories: Extreme Ghostbusters, Toys
Extreme Ghostbusters may not have had much in the way of tie-in merchandise, but it did have some - with some of it being video games that actually came out years after the show ended its brief three-month run in the States. One area where a considerable effort was made in merchandising the show was in the toy and action figure line from Trendmasters.

We had both regular and DELUXE figures of Kylie, Eduardo, Roland, and Egon; Slimer and Samhain figures (you know, in spite of the Spirit of Halloween not actually appearing in any of the show's stories); the generic "Mouth Critter" and "House Ghost"; the Ecto-1 car for the 'busters to ride in; and child-sized Ghost Trap and Plasma Blaster (a quasi proton pack) toys for pretend play. The only thing we were missing - besides Janine and ghostly villains from the episodes themselves - was the fourth member of the team: the wheelchair-bound Garrett Miller.

At the time that the toys were released, some thought that maybe the lack of a Garrett figure was due to some sort of political-INcorrectness - even though the fact that there was a wheelchair-bound ghostbuster would demonstrate quite the opposite. There were others, like me, who thought that maybe the folks at Trendmasters couldn't figure out how to make a wheelchair-bound figure that would, for lack of better phrasing, work in conjunction with the other able-bodied figures.

As it turns out, Trendmasters did plan on making a Garrett figure, complete with specialized weapon-ized wheelchair. It even went so far as the prototype stage, but for some reason, it never made it to the store shelves. Maybe if the show would have stuck around longer, it would have. Thankfully, collector Jonathan Shyman managed to, somehow, get his hands on the Garrett prototype and has shared pictures of it and information with the Ghostbusters Wiki.
Trendmasters did a prototype of the Garrett Miller figure. Garrett's wheelchair here is completely modified to have a massive ray gun or missile launcher instead of what is seen on Extreme Ghostbusters, and would not fit in the Ecto-1 Cruiser. His hair is also a lighter shade then his actual animated look, which was often the case with any prototype Trendmasters made before the final colors were established. This unique piece is most likely a one of a kind prototype, which was used as a Toy Fair Paint Master Sample, since it's completely done up, like most Toy Fair Samples. [...] [It's] made entirely of RESIN. I'm not sure if it ever made it to the plastic stage of development, but the resin figures are always better sculpts and paint jobs, often in non-production colors.

This Ain't Ghostbusters XXX Rave Reviews Press Release

PermalinkBy Paul Rudoff on Jul. 7, 2011 at 4:36 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Home Video
Hustler just sent along this press release which gives a sampling of some of the rave reviews the movie has received. It even quotes my review and Ghostbusters News's review, which is really cool. Originally it mistakenly attributed my site as being at SpookCentral.com, which is a domain name I don't have (unfortunately) and never used. With Hustler's permission, I changed it to read SpookCentral.tk in the press release posted below.

This Ain't Ghostbusters XXX Parody Receives Rave Reviews!

(Canoga Park, CA) - Thursday, July 7th, 2011 - Just over a month has passed since the release of Hustler Video's second big 3D feature parody, This Ain't Ghostbusters XXX. Reveling in the light of rave reviews, Hustler Video has been overwhelmed by stellar reviews and cheers of accolades from the many review sites and critical eyes of their fans and the public at large.

"I have to admit that Axel Braun did a damn good job," said Ottimo Massimo of Fleshbot.com "For one, it's packing some of the best 3D imagery that I've seen in porn. Oh, and it also came with a free trading card! The special effects are both flashy and appropriate, the acting captures the spirit of the original film, and most importantly, the sex is solid."

Many Ghostbusters fan sites have also marveled at the quality of filmmaking, special effects, and especially the quality of acting coming from a group of trained adult performers.

"Let me just say that Evan Stone stole the show playing an over the top Dr. Peter Venkman," said the guys over at GhostbustersNews.com. "I have to gives kudos to Hustler on this one, as they did something that definitely wasn't easy."

"Evan Stone totally nails the character of Peter Venkman," agrees Paul, of SpookCentral.tk. "As you watch him weaselly hit on the female college student, you completely feel like you're watching the 'real' Peter Venkman."

One of the toughest critics in the adult industry, Don Houston, from XCritic.com, even handed the This Ain't Ghostbusters XXX parody the coveted award of being an "XCritic Pick!"

"The entertainment factor was off the scale with this one," said Houston, "Keeping in mind that even a few friends that don't like porn parodies found this one to be (and I quote) 'fucking great."

3D enthusiast and aficionado, Mark Kernes, thought that not only was the movie a stellar piece of quality filmmaking, but that the technical aspects of the 3D special effects were impressive and notable, giving the This Ain't Ghostbusters XXX parody a five star review!

"Beyond the terrific sex, though, we have to say a few words about the special effects, which are just fabulous," said Kernes. "Nearly all of the buildings are rendered in perfect 3D CGI...Likewise, the 3D camera work is flawless...All in all, it's a nearly perfect 3D XXX experience."

"The This Ain't Ghostbusters XXX parody is a hit!" said Drew Rosenfeld, Creative Director for Hustler Video. "We really showed both the mainstream and adult community what we're capable of. It's safe to say that you can expect to see a lot of high quality 3D product coming from Hustler Video."

The This Ain't Ghostbusters XXX parody is available now in a 3D DVD/Blu-ray combo pack.
