Ecto Crank who I only knew of from Twitter is a UK ghosthead who sells custom made Ghostbusters themed patches and pins. “Occasional creative,” Ecto Crank created a Ghostbusters Paranormal Activity Book. Similar to The Real Ghostbusters activity books ghostheads could have spent time with in 1988. …activity book filled with Ghostbusters themed puzzles, colouring sheets, word searches, etc. designed initially for franchises to give away at conventions but could easily be used… Read More

Inside Editions sent over additional official images with press release for the soon to arrive Tobin’s Spirit Guide. Thank you for including Ecto-Containment. This June, Insight Editions is releasing Tobin’s Spirit Guide, an immersive in-world guide based on the fictional book mentioned in the 1984 Ghostbusters film. For the first time, the public can finally pore through the pages of this legendary guide to learn all about the things that go bump in the night—from Class… Read More

On September 8, 2015 I wrote that Amazon added new information, (which I included and will again) about what Insight Editions Tobin’s Spirit Guide (Ghostbusters Inc. Tobin’s Spirit Guide) will be about. With November coming to an end and turkeys breathing a sigh of relief Insight Editions and Amazon have gave ghostheads a first look as the Tobin’s Spirit Guide (abridged) cover.

Back in July I wrote that an abridged version (Ecto-Containment Blog Post) of Tobin’s Spirit Guide was coming from Insight Editions, the publisher of the upcoming Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post) New information has been posted from on-line retailer Amazon.

West End Games, Inc. published Tobin’s Spirit Guide (for use with Ghostbusters™ A Frightfully Cheerful Roleplaying Game) during Ghostbusters’ infancy. During the internet age ghostheads have been making fan made versions which can encompass more then the films and the original RPG books. What can be included is unnaturally personal preference. Like this one (GB Inc. Blog Post, January 26, 2015) from Italian ghosthead Joe Nonostante. His version of Tobin’s clocks in at 496… Read More

About two months ago as I was working on the Ghostbusters NYC website (also known for web site purposes as Ghostbusters Firehouse) I decided to begin moving the once scanned/current PDF files of Ghostbusters/The Real Ghostbusters reading material to Ghostbusters Firehouse for realism and to save space at Ecto-Containment. Every smaller PDF file wasn’t complete in February. Something I hadn’t realized during most of the uploads. Naturally as is the case when one… Read More

Note: Originally appeared at my personal site, iRich. If you’ve long lost track of how many times you’ve seen Ghostbusters in 30 years, you might want to try a different way to experience Ghostbusters phenomenon, through the printed word. That would be physical print, not computerized robot text. When Ghostbusters was in theaters the first domain hadn’t even been registered yet. That wouldn’t happen until the Ides of March in 1985. If you’ve… Read More

August has been a pretty busy month for me personally. Some of which has been going on since late Spring. Travel and appointments prevented me from posting The Real Ghostbusters news and site updates. Also, after spending 6 months of scanning and cleaning up NOW Comics’ The Real Ghostbusters comics, I was feeling burnt out. At the time I didn’t know I couldn’t get back to enjoying Ghostbusters/The Real Ghostbusters again for almost… Read More
