USAopoly unveils new classic Ghostbusters puzzles

USAopoly has unveiled a new slate of puzzles inspired by the 1984 cult classic movie Ghostbusters.

Launched to coincide with the release of the 2016 reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise, the 550-piece artist illustrated puzzles are currently available on Amazon and in specialty retailers across the US and Canada.

‘The Ghostbusters franchise continues to resonate with consumers across all demographics. The logo remains one of the most recognisable elements of the brand, followed by Slimer, Stay Puft, the Ecto-1 and the Proton Packs,’ read a statement from USAopoly.

‘All these elements are part of the extensive merchandise programme that have been taking original fans back to their childhoods.’

30 years after the franchise first launched to screens, Hollywood director Paul Feig has been charged with bringing a fresh take on Ghostbusters, joined by a cast including Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth.

The new film will hit theatres across the US from July 15th. Check out the image of the new Ghostbusters puzzle below:
