SyFy has posted a picture on TwitPic of the new Ghost Hunters t-shirt that will be available at Comic Con, which will be taking place this July. The design features a green ghost in a target, with a small "Ghost Hunters" logo to the side. Previously, SyFy has created Jason & Grant bobbleheads for past Comic Cons. Several Ghost Hunters stars are expected to be present at this year's event.

After a successful run on the show, Pfeiffer was one of two ghostly graduates to be cast on the third season of Ghost Hunters International, which premiers mid-July. But as the investigator-in-training heads back to school in the fall, he says his run with GHI has been cut short.
"I just did one episode," Pfeiffer says, adding that episode is slated to be the premiere July 14th. "That's what it turned out to be at this point."
Pfeiffer says he's not sure if he'll be cast for any more episodes despite his graduation from Academy, which earned him a coveted spot with the paranormal investigators who hunt down hauntings across the world.
"There's a possibility, but they really haven't told me much at this point," he says. "I'm not really too sure. They've been juggling a lot of different cast members for the show. They're just trying to get their feet on the ground."
Swallowing some of that disappointment, Pfeiffer says the filming for his sole episode in the upcoming season -- at the Halls of Justice in Nottingham, England -- was by far the most interesting.
"I can't tell too much, but it's actually a really good case," he adds. "And I think it's going to be a really good premiere for the show."

“I wish I would have progressed a little bit further but as far as what I did, I don’t have any regrets. It was a lot of fun. I would do it again. It was definitely worth it,” said McGinnis of his time on the show.
McGinnis was eliminated mainly because of an error he made during an investigation. He forgot to attach an IR illuminator Ð a device that extends infrared vision Ð to his camera.
Others believe McGinnis was eliminated for a different reason.
“Some of the cadets made it seem like I lost some passion but that’s not true,” said McGinnis, admitting he had a head cold while filming.
“That was kind of wearing on me a little bit.”
Even after the elimination, McGinnis maintained a positive attitude.“Jason Hawes (founder of The Atlantic Paranormal Society) told me even after the show that I had been selected over tens of thousands of applicants and that I was a winner already. And then progressing to the third investigation, I felt pretty good,” McGinnis said.

In November 2006, plaintiffs Larry Montz, a parapsychologist, and Daena Smoller, a publicist, filed a complaint in federal district court. They claimed that in 1981, Montz conceived of the concept for a new reality television program featuring a team of "paranormal investigators." As allegedly envisioned by Montz, each hour-long episode would follow the team's members to a different real-world location, where they would use magnetometers, infrared cameras, and other devies to investigate (and occasionally debunk) reports of paranormal activity.
The complaint alleges that between 1996 and 2003, the plaintiffs presented screenplays, videos, and other materials relating to their proposed show to representatives of NBC Universal, Inc., and the Sci-Fi Channel (now the Syfy Channel), "for the express purpose of offering to partner . . . in the production, broadcast and distribution of the Concept." The representatives were allegedly not interested in the concept for the show. According to the complaint, however, NBC Universal subsequently partnered with Craig Piligian and Pilgrim Films & Television, Inc., to produce a series on the Sci-Fi Channel based on the plaintiffs' materials. The show, called Ghost Hunters, stars Jason Hawes as the leader of a team of investigators who travel across the country to study paranormal activity.
