Sideshow Collectibles has revealed the Ghostbusters Terror Dog scaled replica by Chronicle Collectibles. The nineteen-inch resin statue was sculpted from the original screen-used molds by artist Randall William Cook used in Ivan Reitman’s 1984 classic feature.
The item is available in two versions, standard and Signature Edition, which includes a signed plaque and is limited to just 250 pieces. The standard edition retails for $500, while the Signature Edition goes for $600:
Both versions of Sideshow & Chronicle Collectibles’ Ghostbusters Terror Dog is expected to ship within three to four weeks after ordering.
Who doesn’t love Ghostbusters? Not only does the film perfectly combine humor with horror, but it hosts some of movie history’s most memorable and groundbreaking practical FX. A 1984 Academy Award Nominee for Best Visual Effects, Ghostbusters‘ team used puppetry and primitive motion-blur (lens modification with vaseline) to deliver its scares, peppered with the charming real-creature clumsiness that gives the movie its heart.
And now, Sideshow and Chronicle Collectibles are proud to present the ultimate licensed Ghostbusters Terror Dog Replica. Rotocast in resin and hand-painted like the actual filming puppet. Horns for both the Keymaster and Gatekeeper are included with each Terror Dog.
Cast from the original FX mold – the mold that birthed the rubber puppets used in the film – the prototype was restored by Kristina Lucas Francis and approved by the original sculptor, Randall William Cook. The Terror Dog stands on its own four feet, and requires no base. He will easily fit in with your favorite models and prop replicas, or tower above the smaller Ghostbusters action figures that you’ve collected over the years.
