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.
