Mattel has been lighting up San Diego Comic Con with loads of impressive new reveals and major news for their key brands. They've even managed to make Ghostbusters exciting, and you can read all about it thanks to their latest announcement.

Late last week, the storied production team, the Four Horsemen, launched a brand new Kickstarter project to get their Gothitropolis Ravens figures off the ground.
