In 1980 something if you wanted to have a Ghostbusters (birthday) party, these themed items (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, January 8, 2015) were about the best your parental units were going to do. Fast forward 31 years, (my, how Ghostbusters times have changed) Spirit Halloween has officially licensed Ghostbusters items for your upcoming Ghostbusters party or event. Looking for Ghostbusters decor to throw a great party? Who you gonna call? This officially licensed Ghostbusters… Read More

Backposting this almost 2 months later for reasons. On June 8, 2019, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Ghost Corps, and Wizard World celebrated Ghostbusters 35th anniversary with Ghostbusters Fan Fest! (GBI Search Tag) The “I Ain’t Afraid of No Toys panel” was an in-depth look at Kenner’s The Real Ghostbusters toy lines. With Kenner toy designer, Mark Boudreaux. (Linked in) A bit unfortunate I wasn’t able to attend Fan Fest and still haven’t made time to… Read More

Earlier in the week I received my order of Ecto Cooler cans (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, June 13, 2016) from Amazon. I thought the following day I’d have my first taste of real (in packaging/branding) Ecto Cooler in at least 25 years. Compared to when I was 8, a few decades later I felt I should wait at least one more day. Both Wednesday and Thursday prior to lunch I was out. When I came… Read More

Towards the end of April, Hi-C launched their on-line marketing campaign (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, April 25, 2016) for Ecto Cooler return. With a tentative release date on May 30, 2016. Tentative as chain grocery retailers still might not have received the infamous juice box. While many of us, including myself have yet to see the “drink of childhood” in stores, cans are a different story. Ecto Cooler in its 11.5 ounce can is… Read More

Anovos Productions LLC announced yesterday, although I wrote about it today (GBI Blog Post, April 30, 2016) they’ll be selling a licensed Proton Pack Kit. Proton Pack frame sold separately. Lights and sound kits to eventually come. Matty Collector also neither offered kits or a complete Proton Pack prop toy. I suppose we were fortunate enough to have a Neutrino Wand. It had me thinking of early ghostheads who built a Proton Pack as… Read More

Exciting news today as ghostheads found out (thanks to GBNJ member Kenneth) not only is Hi-C Ecto-Cooler coming, the marketing campaign has started! Though I suppose before we get into the fun stuff, (my past kid self disapproves) let’s take a brief look at the business side. Why are we getting Ecto-Cooler in 2016? Charles Torrey, Vice President, Minute Maid/Hi-C Brands, Coca-Cola North America has the answer. From BusinessWire: “Hi-C Ecto Cooler… Read More

At last month’s Toy Fair New York aka NYTF, one of the collectible items Cryptozoic Entertainment had on display (GBI Blog Post, February 14, 2016) is the upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS Fan Club Collector Kit. As I was too young for the official fan club (GBI Blog Post, June 8, 2014) and somehow missed out on Ghostbusters cereal’s “Be a Ghostbuster” cereal premium (GBI Blog Post, October 20, 2014) thirty two years later finally, I get to officially be part of a Ghostbusters… Read More

The momentum for Ecto Cooler continues to build as some people are receiving a product sample Hi-C Ecto Cooler 2016, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 19, 2016) and samples have been tasted. When Ghostbusters (2016) director Paul Feig was asked by Alex Lobo via Twitter about Ecto Cooler’s 2016 release, we all received the following response: I don’t know when sooner in relation to Ghostbusters (2016) release in July. I do feel at the… Read More

Yesterday I woke up to new Ecto Cooler news. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 18, 2016) Last night as I was exiting the internet for the night their was some clarification and an update about the seeming evolution of Hi-C Ecto-Cooler. The mystery can from the eBay seller naturally received attention about the auction. As I was preparing this post I saw it (the auction, not my site 😉 was trending on Facebook. Since… Read More

Since last I wrote about Ecto-Cooler (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, November 27, 2015) possibly returning things had been quiet about our favorite ’80s citrus drink. Until today. Practically the first Ghostbusters news item I woke up to was physical proof of a new, Ecto-Cooler can. However, this proof comes from an eBay auction.
