Before I have to move I’d like to try to sell Ghostbusters collectibles, (with some other 1980s properties) from my collection. I’d prefer at this time if possible not to have to ship items. Particularly large items. That might depend on price, the item, and my personal time in getting ready to move. That’s why I haven’t tried to sell on eBay up to now.
I’ve made a list as a PDF file and uploaded it to Google Drive folder.* I’ll also add the items in this post and when possible update the file Prices sometimes were gauged from what was recently listed on eBay. If their isn’t a price, please make a serious offer. Prices are listed in USD.

Toys, figures, and collectibles were bought from December 2010 throughout 2011. Toys are in box or on card with most, if not all its packaging and any accessories. Some exceptions may apply. Their may be wear in boxes or to cards, particularly from the 1980s. From 2010 to July 2017 toys, figures, and collectibles come from a smoke free home.
What am I selling? Mostly Ghostbusters and He-Man. Classic Collection Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. A couple of items from Back To The Future.

Going back to about March I finally had the paperwork to settle my parent’s estate. I wasn’t 100% ready to try until end of Spring.
I would have liked to have had more time for Ghostbusters blog posts and site content around Ghostbusters 33rd anniversary and Ghostbusters II 28th anniversary. I kept up when possible through the sites social media accounts.
The week going into Father’s Day I called my real estate agent and once the listing went live there were showings Friday, Saturday, and Monday. Offers were made almost immediately. A week ago I agreed and the process continues.
I’ve been getting ready to move when the time comes. I probably won’t write news posts or create site content until after I moved. I’ll be around both Ecto-Containment and Ghostbusters International social media when possible.
In part because of my upcoming move I am looking to sell quite a bit of my collection from Ghostbusters and not surprisingly other ’80s properties. I’ll be writing about that separately.

As part of Lee’s Toy Review Issue #184 from February 2008, Lee’s had a guide to collecting The Ghost Busters (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 26, 2017) and Ghostbusters toys that included up to that time Ghostbusters 20th anniversary.
I may have a vague recollection of seeing this at Borders, as I wasn’t really collecting at the time and didn’t read Lee’s Toy Review, I didn’t buy a copy. Since then I had mostly forgotten about it.
Recently David Boozer, who runs The Ghostbusters Vault scanned his copy for ghostheads. I’ve lightly cleaned the scans and made a PDF copy. The just Ghostbusters content with covers is 11 pages and comes in at 152 MB.
What’s somewhat interesting to me is that Lee’s didn’t have or couldn’t find some photos for Kenner‘s The Real Ghostbusters toys in 2008. It’s possible even with search engines they didn’t necessarily have permission to publish said photos. Or product photos weren’t on-line.
Lee’s Toy Review (Ghostbusters Firehouse PDF) has been added to Ghostbusters Firehouse The Magazine Rack.

Playmobil (US) has shared a commercial for their Ghostbusters play sets. The commercial is a mix of German and a little English.
Although kids and thirty somethings could Playmobil (US) Ghostbusters without an ID, we all know IDs are fun. Especially Ghostbusters ones.
That’s why Playmobil created a mostly automated Ghostbusters ID generator. (English Language) You or kids (please get permission) can use your own photos or a choice of Playmobil Ghostbusters figures. Once an ID or two have are to your liking, you can even print it out!
Get ready for part of a fictional essay I could have written in 3rd grade. And if Ghostbusters II had been around in 1985. Dinosaurs use to look like big lizards. Zuul, called a dog is “some kind of big lizard.”
Long before Ghostbusters and afterwards scientists/paleontologists have discovered more details about different species of dinosaurs. While some looked like something the Ghostbusters could have battled I never would have thought a race of dinosaurs would look “close enough” to a Terror Dog to be named after the minion of Gozer.
An armored dinosaur species, technically an ankylosaur once roamed present day northern Montana eating plants like there wouldn’t be a tomorrow.
