The Weekly Links: More Ghostbusters Film News, LEGO Arcade Machines, Cobra Commander Receives Key To Springfield

Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! So more Ghostbusters reboot/remake/sequel talk again this week. Are you just as confused as I am? Sheesh! Can we get one made first before more are crammed down my nostalgic throat?

Hope everyone had a chance to enter the Pac-man Poncho Giveaway over at Rad Retro Stuff! I'll be hosting another giveaway very soon so stay tuned. I invite you to also signup for Giveaway Email Alerts so you won't miss any chances to add to your collection!

Earlier in the week, I told you about the upcoming Back In Time documentary film that appears to be the most comprehensive ever produced for the Back To The Future franchise. Originally, the film was supposed to just be about the DeLorean, but with all the interviews they were able to land, the producers have gone back to Kickstarter to help with the added production cost.

The madness of March continues with another fun pop culture tournament. My pals over at UnderScoopFire! just announced this week via their podcast the Next Big Reboot Tournament. The field of 32 has been set and its up to you to vote for your favorite TV shows, movies, foods, and cartoons should be rebooted by Hollywood. Of course, I'm hoping M.A.S.K. can make it to the final four. Also, don't forget that the Kickin' It Old School 1985 Movie Madness Tournament is in full swing! The field is already down to the Sweet 16 so make sure you vote for your favorites!

Well over the last couple weeks I've seen some awesome pop culture drones including the Millennium Falcon, but this one is probably my favorite. Watch this video, which includes first-person footage, of a drone decked out like an Imperial Speeder from Return of the Jedi! It was definitely my favorite video this week...
