Kyle Roberts, from Reckless Abandonment Pictures sent over an electronic email to let me know about one of their stop motion videos. It isn’t any stop motion video, it’s a tribute to The Real Ghostbusters intro, “starring” Diamond Select Toys The Real Ghostbusters figures! Press Release: It’s that time for all things spooky, and we ain’t afraid of no ghosts! 💚👻💚Oklahoma City animation studio, Reckless Abandonment Pictures, got their start producing fan-made stop… Read More

Ghostbusters: The Video Game was officially remastered (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, September 6, 2019) on Friday, October 4. I know some ghostheads have already completed the Ghostbusters game which turns 10 this year! What if you’re stuck somewhere and need a helping hand, so to speak? Maybe need a gaming manual? Or also want to relive (maybe for the first time) the journey or reviews for Ghostbusters: The Video Game? Ecto-Containment has ghostheads covered.

Diamond Select Toys has revealed their New York Comic Con “Scared” Mr. Stay-Puft exclusive. Ghostheads would immediately recognize that while this figure is being marketed under The Real Ghostbusters brand, the only time Mr. Stay-Puft was scared is right before the Ghostbusters ruin Gozer’s night. Opinion: I don’t own the “regular” non exclusive version. I really like the idea behind this affordable toy and collectible. I’m not sure why (other then deceiving a fanbase) Diamond… Read More

Near Labor Day in the states Sony Pictures announced that GHOSTBUSTERS™ is returning to “select” movie theaters on October 6 and October 10. What makes these screenings different then just showing the movie is the added “unearthed and rarely seen alternate takes.” If you own the 35th Anniversary 4K/Blu-Ray, I presume the same content is featured on the discs. Press release after the break.

Their was a time since 2009 and more recently in the last five years when I’d write or share Ghostbusters: The Video Game news/content. Ghostheads probably never thought their would be an update and a new official release of “Ghostbusters 3” again. Epic Games, Saber Interactive, video game publisher Mad Dog LLC, and of course Sony Pictures is happily proving us wrong. Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is coming to your computer or next generation… Read More

Remember that time over at GBI when they wrote about the official Ghostbusters Fan Club? (GBI Blog Post, June 8, 2014) Five years later they, (well I did) wrote about the official international Ghostbusters fan club again. For a very good reason. It started this summer when the king of the ghostheads, Peter Mosen. (Facebook) had been taking and sharing photos from his career and collecting. One or more of the shared photos… Read More

On July 31, 2019, (so..tomorrow) horror themed apparel maker Fright Rags will have a new collection of Ghostbusters apparel, mostly reminiscent of 1980 something Ghostbusters T-shirts. From Fright Rags: WE’RE READY TO BELIEVE YOU! Officially Licensed GHOSTBUSTERS Collection is coming NEXT WEDNESDAY 7/31 at 10am EST! Brand new spooky tees (TWO Justin Osbourn designs & TWO Kyle Crawford designs — incl. a retro black/white baseball tee ) and a pair of classic NO-GHOST… Read More

Who knew that in 2019 ghostheads would need knitted Ghostbusters vinyl figures. If a robot makes them by hand, pretty much everybody! At last weeks San Diego Comic Con, Handmade By Robots revealed two upcoming Ghostbusters figures. While they aren’t the Ghostbusters, (I’m trying to picture them) ghostheads can buy a plastic knit like Slimer or Stay-Puft. Descriptions and additional photos after the break.

Ghostheads had already known Chronicle Collectibles are making high end (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 29, 2019) The Real Ghostbusters collectibles. During last week’s San Diego Comic Con, Chronicle Collectibles revealed their upcoming to scale Ecto-1. Toys news site, ToyArk took photos as part of their SDCC coverage. Overall this is The Real Ghostbusters series Ecto-1 I remember. As the figures aren’t posable, it stands to reason “the car” won’t have doors that open. Either way this… Read More

Diamond Select Toys produced a couple of series (Diamond Select Toys Blog Post) featuring The Real Ghostbusters figures. Although posable, they don’t quite capture, (from what I’ve seen of them) “the Kenner feel.” A reason I don’t own any of them. On a higher end collector market, Chronicle Collectibles is producing all 4 The Real Ghostbusters figures along with Slimer. The bad: They’re more like statues, total cost, near $600 USD*, and Slimer is… 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
