But, obviously, there are big gaps in there and Sideshow Collectibles is going to fill them.
Go into the archive on Mondo’s website and search “Ghostbusters.” Incredibly, no posters come up—which seems impossible, considering the company has been making movie posters based on basically every single property there is for over a decade.

“Dodgson! We’ve got Dodgson here!” Usually, no one cares. But this time, you might.
There are some great, great posters out there for Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. But really, nothing can touch the original.

If the world was ending and you were an astronaut, you’d probably just go into space and drift away. But not artist Scott Listfield’s astronaut. He sticks around to provide us a very unique perspective on the world around him.
Is the person in the below clip cosplaying as Doctor Strange? We don’t believe so. Maybe it’s his cousin, though, because the effect of holding holographic displays in your hands creates similar-looking spells that can turn anyone into a master of the mystic arts.
