Matthew Jordan who runs Ghostbusters Wiki responded with:
Rumor has it, it was a promo for The Real Ghostbusters soundtrack and was sent out to select radio stations in 1986. I heard that from a friend.
Ghost Corps replied:
Interesting! The inside does have a space that looks like a soundtrack could fit in it, and when Slimer popped up it would have revealed it!
I also thought this promotional item was pretty interesting. While I had maybe seen it on-line through the years, never in this detail. It isn’t something I would have usually remembered anyway.
Here are some of the photos Ghost Corps shared.
On January 19, 2017 Ghost Corps also shared a photo of Extreme Ghostbusters toys, looking practically case fresh. Which I could have bought on sale at a Big K-Mart 17 years ago.
