Ghostbusters - Surt by T-RexJones Ghostbusters - Surt by T-RexJones
This may be my new favorite. I loved Surt in the episode "Slimer's Sacrifice" and let's face it, pretty much any episode of anything Ghostbusters related that involves them going into the containment unit is always full of awesome.

Again, like Nexa (and unlike the last image I did -- Theron) I didn't really feel the need to play around with this one. He's an awesomely designed character, and his voice is probably the creepiest in the show (next to the Grundel I think). I also love anything that doesn't have eyes (I popped my horror film cherry on Alien at the tender age of 6 -- probably explains a lot of things too).

Woah, it looks fantastic and creepy enough! Somehow it resembles to some forgotten unholy demon that could be workshipped back in the Mesopotamian age that finds a new place in modern society as a Boogieman or some devilish closet monster.

I hardly remember a few things from the Real Ghostbusters show, is this an official villain then? I love his design, certaintly the absence of eyes gives him a terrific look. It also somehow reminds me to some of the creatures from Guillermo del Toro's movies, or even Hellboy's comicbooks. A few people truly understands the key behind a monster's design, I think. It's not just about maws, claws or spikes: it's mostly about disparity.

Instant fav!
Creepy yet interesting! As much as I enjoyed watching the Ghostbusters films and cartoons, this is definitely something to chill my bones. The name of this particular demon is from Norse mythology; the fiery demon-titan ruler of Muspellheim, who will burn the entire world at Ragnarok. I even have a character named Surt in my gallery, but he's an elf, and he's an honorable sort.
Wow. This is amazing. As a Ghostbusters fanatic, I approve most definitely. And I agree that any time they went into the containment unit there's awesomeness to be had. I honestly think Surt deserved more time than he got. Anyway, great artwork!
Hey! Thanks Ben! Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, too!

He did, you're right there... and I wish we hadda seen more inside the containment unit during EGB's run as well... :(
You're quite welcome. :D

And in this GB fanatic's opinion, EGB should've ran as long as Real Ghostbusters did.

Apparently the containment unit evolved or changed over the years from Real to Extreme. Was quite fascinating.

It would've been cool to see how the original Ghostbusters trapped him. Also would've been pretty sweet if the Boogieman and Samhain returned on the show. And pretty much any episode of the shows that involved the Containment Unit in any way, shape, or form(such as a ghost escaping from it) was nifty as well.
I agree! It'd make a fantastic story, I'm certain of it!

Fritz Baugh had his own idea that Surt was captured offscreen during the episode Ragnarok and Roll. I oddly never thought of that. For some reason, I speculated Surt was the last ghost the original Ghostbusters caught before they went out of business in 1991. I even had a story about it written for an unofficial 8th season of RGB, and would feature cameos by the future Extreme Ghostbusters. When I was young, XGB was really my introduction to the Ghostbusters franchise. I really liked the Ghostbusters back then, and liked them even more after I found out about the movies and The Real Ghostbusters.
