Mattel Hot Wheels Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & Wonder Woman Jet

The SDCC Ghostbusters Ecto-1 is a nice upgrade from the retail one …

1:64 scale Hot Wheels Ecto-1 in a special acrylic case. The Ecto-1 features Real Riders deep-dish wheels with whitewalls and full-metal chassis – $20.00

For reference, here’s what the $.99 version looks like …

Closer …

It will be available at the regular Mattel “selling” space behind the booth like last year.

And the Wonder Woman Jet is not invisible invisible …

It was an April’s Fool’s joke and now it’s “real.”

There was a company a few years back that sold ‘the invisible man’ on an empty card – it was either a freebie with another purchase or something like that. This SDCC exclusive Jet is $5.00.

For reference, here is the Johnny Lighting Ghostbusters II car from a few years back, I’m presuming they did an Ecto-1 which I cannot find …

Looks like the Hot Wheels one will be a nice companion to this one …

    Nice stuff.

    Good to see more unusual toys being produced!

    But, have the promoters and toy companies forgotten there is a RECESSION happening and $20.00 for a Hotwheels is TOO much.

    I would pay $5.00 for the “Invisible Jet” but, NOT the $10.00 to $15.00 others are asking.

    I would be happy just to find some new Pixar “CARS” – nothing new here since K-Mart Day event?!?

    The Hot Wheel 99 cent Ecto-1 is packed one per case-only available when you beat the Hot Wheel collector in the back room to the punch. I’ve been able to find these only when I happen to be in the store mid day when a totally disinterested store clerk dumped them into a bin. The Invisible Jet is a $5 joke aimed at hardcore “I have to get everything collector. Watch eBay after SDCC closes. Hasbro will put their excess SDCC inventory on their website after SDCC. Last year I picked up the Marvel Universe and Little Pet Shop exclusives for the SDCC retail price plus shipping (and Taxes). Years ago Hot Wheels made a series of nicely crafted Super Hero castings. My son rolled his down our concrete driveway along with his original Star Wars lunch box.

    PS: I just checked and the Ecto-1 and Invisible Jet are both on eBay at pre-order prices as well as just about every other SDCC exclusive promotional items.

      you sure there are only 1 per case? Last time I went to Walmart, there were 8 on the pegs. I am pretty sure there wasn’t 8 cases worth of Hot Wheels there.

  • I-am-speed says:

    Any SDCC visitors that might grab me 1, maybe 2, of the SDCC Ecto-1s when they’re out there?

  • Stig McQueen says:

    I might just have to get me one of those! And yes, there was a JL Ecto-1 from the original Ghostbusters movie; I had one! Unfortunately, I think it got mixed in with a bunch of other Hot Wheels that we sent in to my son’s daycare, so it’s long gone…

  • NascarFan says:

    I have a few pre orders for these, but No one has ever answered my question, is that Jet drawn on the card or a clear plastic jet?

    The SDCC Ecto-1 has a special box too,

    Met do you need photos?

  • Mike H says:

    So that’s where all the cases for the cancelled 5-for-1 promotions went. 😛

  • TarheelBill says:

    Who ya gonna call….The Wonder Woman Jet is lame. 😆

  • kdthomas says:

    Nothing for Caddy Shack?

  • Indykjt says:

    I like both of these… just can’t put out the $$ for them right now. If I could, I’d get one of each of these, and pick up a SDCC Lotso too!

    Ahhh welll… just gonna stick with the D/P Cars for now!

  • kevin roche says:

    cool stuff–any star wars collectors out there

  • cac1959 says:

    The SDCC Ecto-1 is a nice looking car… I’ve only seen the 99 cent one in a store once… luckily a friend picked up a couple for me.
