Sony Pictures Consumer Products has announced the auction of a limited-edition action figure in the likeness of “Ghostbusters” legend, Ivan Reitman. The auction will be live 9 a.m. PST to 9 p.m. PST on Dec. 12. All proceeds will benefit Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. 

Ivan Reitman, one of the co-creators of the “Ghostbusters” franchise, was a notable supporter of charitable causes, giving back to local communities throughout his life. As such, his charitable spirit became a hallmark of the “Ghostbusters” franchise.

The limited-edition “Ghostbusters” Plasma Series Ivan Reitman 6” action figure by Hasbro wears a classic Ghostbusters flight suit and is geared up with a proton pack, neutrona wand, plasma stream, movie clapboard and a detailed recreation of the megaphone Ivan used while filming on the movie set. 

“Ghostbusters fans are tethered by a sense of community that has united the franchise for decades,” says Jason Reitman, son of Ivan Reitman and fellow “Ghostbusters” filmmaker. “My father lost his childhood home at the age of four and fled to Canada as a refugee. He would be honored by his very own action figure serving to help Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.”   

The auction coincides with forthcoming theatrical and animated content in development, including a sequel to “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” and two new offerings from Sony Pictures Animation: the first “Ghostbusters” animated movie and a “Ghostbusters” animated series, both currently in development.
