ORIGINAL 1986 KENNER ECTO-1 CONCEPT ART PRESENTATION BOARD!
It's Christmas eve so that means this is the last of the three images I will be sharing of the original design artwork created at Kenner for the original Ecto-1 vehicle.
All three boards were used in a presentation to upper management and the rest of the design team in order to show what could be done with the most important vehicle of the toy line.
This is board number #1 "Figure Interaction Features". My favourite of the three, this board shows the entire RGB team speeding along in Ecto-1 while simultaneously catching a yellow ghost using a claw that extends from the DOUBLE gunner chair on top of the vehicle.
Having two seats on top was the designers idea to have the toy accommodate all four figures but unfortunately we only got one seat on the production toy.
What I like the most about this piece of artwork however is how well it demonstrates how the early reference material from the promo pilot directly influenced the initial look of the toys.
All four guys have the same coloured jumpsuits on and if you look closely you'll notice that Venkman looks like a cartoon version of Bill Murray!
It's a great piece of art, perhaps the most iconic and historically important in my collection and one I hope you enjoy seeing!
Merry Christmas all!! @cerealgeek77
