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!

In May the box subscription service Loot Crate announced a new Limited Edition Crate. One that would celebrate the Ghostbusters film franchise for both the 20 and 21 centuries. With Ghostbusters (2016) on the horizon from Columbia Pictures, a Sony Pictures Entertainment company, new and “classic” merchandise could mean an all Ghostbusters crate was indeed possible.
Last month around Ghostbusters 32 anniversary ghostheads were able to place their orders. Personally I don’t subscribe to any subscription box services. For a limited edition all Ghostbusters collectibles, I wouldn’t normally need to give buying a second thought. I did as with Ghostbusters (2016) being the shiny new Ghostbusters movie I knew their could be more Ghostbusters (2016) collectibles then GHOSTBUSTERS ones.
I decided if their was one or more items I didn’t want I could sell hopefully for a small profit. I took a plunge into a river of Ghostbusters collectible. Which shipped in early July and arrived from California a little earlier this week.
Before I talk about the items and show 22 additional photos I will provide the following:
If you ordered this Limited Edition Loot Crate and either haven’t received your order yet and would like the element of surprise to have your own enjoyment, you may want to read my reviews of other Ghostbusters collectibles. They can be found under iRich.
Funkorecently announced wave 2 of their Pop! Tees. Among the likes of some jokerish space civil war t-shirts is the above Ghostbusters Pop! t-shirt. We know Pop! Movies Winston Zeddemore (iRich Blog Post, December 28, 2014) is smaller in scale, that isn’t a reason to exclude him.
You may remember Funko originally released (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 11, 2015) a Ghostbusters Pop! Tee as a SDCC 2015 exclusive. Which was later sold at retailers and on-line.
Each of Funko’s Pop! Tees come with a Pop! Mini Standee collector card. They’ll be available during Summer 2016.
As you may have read I didn’t originally think to check Amazon Japan for Ghostbusters merchandise. I also would do the same with Rakuten. The idea was to look at Ghostbusters merchandise that I’m pretty sure isn’t or never was available in either the US or Canada. Most likely Mexico as well. That could be a different conversation entirely.
I found 8 categories (its possible an item either has a different style or design) on Amazon Japan and another ten on Rakuten. We’ll explore Rakuten’s selection in a separate blog post.
Before we continue the Japanese Ghostbusters items on Amazon Japan may not be available to buy any longer. Links provided are in Japanese. Browsers such as Google’s Chrome will translate to your preferred language. Continue reading →
At the end of June Funko, who had previously produced and sells a Pop! Movies ‘roasted’ Stay-Puft vinyl (iRich Blog Post) figure (which I have and believe I still need to write about) chose its angry, roasted vinyl figure for a SDCC 2015 exclusive t-shirt.
The packaging is modeled after Funko’s Pop! Movies Ghostbusters packaging. I’m not sure (outside of secondary and third markets) if these will be available for retail. If you attended SDCC, you may have been able to pick one up.
