This years Las Vegas Licensing Expo is the week of May 23-25. In preparation of movie studios such as Sony Pictures attending, an image surfaced featuring the above new Ghostbusters “no ghost” logo. Which as ghostheads have pointed out gives off a 1980s Kenner vibe. Does that mean Sony and Ghost Corps (Facebook) has some retro toys up their flightsuit sleeves? Subliminally could this be about the upcoming Ghostbusters animated movie and/or animated series?
Believe it or not two years from now the time will be upon us all when the Ghostbusters franchise celebrates 35 years of being “ready to believe you.” 2019 is also significant as Ghostbusters II turns 30.
At the very end of January, Paul R. from Spook Central shared a Ghostbusters video in part as ghosthead Lanny White had asked him for it. Prior, I had a lesser quality copy which I had kinda forgotten about.
SFX Museum Vol. 1 is part of a feature that’s on the Japanese Laserdisc version of Ghostbusters. I don’t personally know if was featured on any North American Ghostbusters Laserdiscs.
The SFX feature is in English with Japanese subtitles. The four interviews in the feature talk about Ghostbusters special effects with Ivan Reitman, Michael C. Gross, Richard Edlund, and John Bruno.
With permission I’ve uploaded SFX Museum Vol. 1 to Ecto-Containment’s YouTube channel. It’s also under the newly created Lasers page.
I’ve been watching Ghostbusters videos on-line for at least seventeen years. When it became possible to save said videos in the 21 Century I would when possible. Adding them with just enough organization to multiple Ghostbusters folders either on my computers, former diskettes, and CD-Rs.
I want to share what I’ve collected and organize it on-line for ghostheads through Ecto-Containment’s YouTube channel for historical and entertainment value.
I don’t imply any ownership of these videos. I presume copyright is held by current media companies. If videos need to be removed, I can certainly do that.
Inside Editions is publishing a new Ghostbusters hardcover for an October release. Ghostbusters Ectomobile is a technical manual for Ghostbusters vehicles and equipment. Written by ghostheads Troy Benjamin and Marc Sumerak.
With Playmobile Ghostbusters (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 2, 2017) ready to believe you next month, Playmobil (US) have released a Ghostbusters mobile game set in the same Ghostbusters Playmobil-verse. That should be a thing.
Four years ago I wrote a four page, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, August 12, 2013) Ecto-Containtment feature about Kenner’s Ecto-Plazm, slime toy alternatives, and something I still enjoy, Nickelodeon Slime!
Like all good things, Gak and Slime! from Nickelodeon weren’t always going to be sold either on-line or in stores. I was a little surprised when I saw on Facebook in the last 4 months Nick brought back slime!, that glows and is shaped like a foreign germ. As opposed to the “secret of the ooze” canister version.
Their is also a secondary shape that reminds me of a frozen popsicle.
At least six months ago as Halloween was approaching I was busy at times getting ready to go on vacation, between future day and a couple days before Halloween. I knew I wanted to write about (then) Halloween Ghostbusters gift bags. In somewhat of a backlog clean up I’ve thought Ghostbusters gifts bags don’t just have to be for Halloween parties and trick-or-treaters.
From the creative and professional Artsy-Fartsy Mama comes the Ghostbusters® Halloween BOO bag.
