30 years ago today The Real Ghostbusters aired to the delight of ghostheads. Episode 1, the infamous Ghosts ‘ R Us is somewhat of a origin story and in 21 minutes explains why they’re The Real Ghostbusters! For 7 seasons our animated Ghostbustin’ heroes went on adventures (along with originally that green guy) 6 days a week. The guys couldn’t do it alone. Janine not only ran the office, (equipment not standard at other… Read More

Thank you to every Ghostbusters/The Real Ghostbusters fan, Kenner/LEGO/NOW Comics collector for visiting Ecto-Containment and supporting us during Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II milestone anniversaries. More updates in the near future! Richard Roy aka Spengs

When I bought my LEGO Ghostbusters ECTO-1 in June, it was from LEGO’s on-line shop. When I received my order (Rich Collectibles) it included a catalog. I didn’t have any newer catalogs as I haven’t bought any LEGO sets since.

Note: Originally written for Ghostbusters Inc. in 2014 in part with the realism of the Ghostbusters universe. When GHOSTBUSTERS II™ was headed for theatrical release Ghostbusters Incorporated, Ralston, and then Columbia Pictures mutually agreed to move forward from our Slimer! and The Real Ghostbusters cereal to fully concentrate on GHOSTBUSTERS II.™ With a soon to be blockbuster movie came product and cross promotions. The “sequel” version of our cereal was a natural… Read More

GHOSTBUSTERS™ cereal was already pretty awesome. You already loved Ghostbusters, you loved cereal, how could the experience be any better? Two words that went hand in hand with children’s breakfast cereals, Free Stuff. More known by its less fun name, premium. When it comes to cereal and getting stuff their were different ways kids went about it. Its free (once parental unit bought your cereal) when cereal companies put the premium inside the… Read More

Note: Originally written for Ghostbusters Inc. in 2014 in part with the realism of the Ghostbusters universe. With the blockbuster success of GHOSTBUSTERS,™ Ghostbusters Incorporated slowly began to license company trademarks for merchandising. Oddly enough considering what began to make my employers successful products for consumption hadn’t been considered yet. Until a trip to a supermarket by Drs. Stantz and Spengler.

On Friday, August 29, 2014 Ghostbusters New Jersey personnel went to meet (GBNJ) with our fans (or they might have been ghostheads) for a 30th Anniversary GHOSTBUSTERS™ Cinemark screening. I didn’t go because of the drive back to central Jersey at a much later hour. The same night the North Jersey Ghostbusters (Facebook) and friends were meeting with fans (GBNJ) and seeing a 30th Anniversary GHOSTBUSTERS™ AMC screening. That’s the location I was planning… Read More

LEGO, the plastic brick masters who produced this summer’s ECTO-1 with mini figures set made a very large Stay-Puft marshmallow man which will be on display at next week’s San Diego Comic Con. Keep in mind should Lego decide to produce a Lego Ideas Stay-Puft, it’ll probably be closer in scale to what Brent Waller created.   Photo Sources: Lego

Over on my collecting blog/site, iRich I’ve written (moved to Ecto-Containment) a “30th Anniversary” post about my Ghostbusters media (format) collection. Originally I didn’t know if writing about old media could be that interesting. It brought back a lot of memories others can certainly relate to, even if its not about Ghostbusters. It also took me about three days to prepare and write. Throughout Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary (which could be any day during… Read More
