The Real Ghostbusters - Cover Art 'Winner' Plus Release Date Update

The set will NOT be out in September

Posted by Gord Lacey
A few weeks ago we hosted artwork voting for the complete series release (only available through Time Life) of The Real Ghostbusters. The response from the fans was awesome, and completely blew Time Life away - everyone that participated deserves a pat on the back. There was one clear winner though...

The artwork will be developed by an artist to look like the firehouse used in the cartoon series. Some fans commented that the artwork above looked like the firehouse from the movie, not the cartoon series; they missed the notes about it being unfinished concept artwork.

The box will feature the firehouse design on 3 sides, with the fourth side displaying the Ghostbusters logo. There will be 3 lenticular (moving images) areas somewhere on the box; details of that art still being worked out. The design we posted for the artwork voting had the set slide out from the side, but that's been changed so the top is lifted off, exposing the bottom of the box which holds the DVD sets (5 volumes, plus the bonus disc in a sleeve).

We've also had reports of people receiving a postcard from Time Life in the mail stating there's a "delay" for the set, and that it'll be shipping out in early September. This is 100% incorrect; the set will ship the middle of November. It takes 10 weeks for the packaging to be produced, and they're still working on the design, so there's absolutely no way the set will ship in early September. It's also important that you preorder your set as soon as possible, because there could be a long delay for sets once the initial shipment sells out.
