New from Ghostbusters: The Slimer Bank

This is one ugly bank. But really, for dedicated Ghostbusters fans, it’s a hand-painted beauty to behold. Sculpted by Rudy Garcia, he stands at over 11 inches tall and comes unpackaged from the folks at Diamond. A fan-favourite, Slimer’s unending appetite will probably never be sated, but give him your pocket change and we’ll see how it goes.

This item is currently in-stock and ready to be sent off to a loving home with someone who enjoys…well, startlingly ugly banks.

The Sims 3 Goes Green!

The last few Sims 3 posts have mentioned the ways that the Sims have not only been fun, but actually made a different. And now, if that’s not enough, they’ve found another way to bring the fight to protect the environment into the online world.

REDWOOD CITY, California — Electronic Arts’ Sims 3 game invites your cast of simulated characters to get virtually eco-friendly with a new 2010 Toyota Prius, now available for free download. The new hybrid car is advertised on the Sims 3 store Web site with the disclaimer, “Animated vehicle. Actual model will vary.”

The download is available to anyone with a registered Sims account at the Sims 3 store Web site. The Prius can be installed in a choice of six typically low-key Toyota shades including Blue Ribbon Metallic, Winter Gray Metallic and Blizzard Pearl. Once downloaded, it’s available to purchase in the Sims “buy” mode for 5,500 simoleans, the currency used by the game.

More to the point for Toyota, game users are offered a link from the download page to the official real-world 2010 Prius Web site.

The animated hybrid had been downloaded 136,182 times as of Wednesday.
