On August 6, 2019, posted at Ecto-Containment on August 7, Ghostbusters International was able to recreate (Ecto-Containment Blog Post) part of the original Official International Ghostbusters Club, thanks to Robert Maxwell Barbieri. (Facebook) I figured that would be it unless TECHPAC or “No Ghosts,“ the quarterly newsletter surfaced. On Halloween and into early November (“that’s my fault”) Robert reached out with a couple of new pieces around the Official Ghostbusters Fan Club. An article… Read More

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

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

Yesterday I had some opinions about Spirit Halloween new Ghostbusters costumes. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, August 19, 2019) The post was long and I didn’t have the time before work to talk about Spirit Halloween other Ghostbusters merchandise. This is that post. Full disclosure I don’t own any of Spirit Halloween’s Ghostbusters items. I use to own Matty Collector Prop Toys and still own a 19 year old Proton Pack replica. Should the time… Read More

  Last year Spirit Halloween took their Ghostbusters license to the next level with new Ghostbusters costumes, prop replicas, and more. (GBI Blog Post, August 30, 2018) Those items far as I know are still available to buy along with a storage facility full of new items. Full disclosure I don’t own any of Spirit Halloween’s Ghostbusters items. As you may know I own a couple of Ghostbusters flight suits, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, March… 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

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

After writing about Weta Workshop’s upcoming Ghostbusters vinyl figures, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 18, 2019) it was finally the right time to list all 3 of Funko/Vinyl Idolz Ghostbusters figures. Before I made time to add them to the Ecto-Containment Store I first added them to Ecto-Containment’s Facebook Page. That’s how I sold both a Dr. Peter Venkman and Dr. Egon Spengler Vinyl Idolz. Dr. Raymond Stantz Vinyl Idolz stands alone and should… Read More

  I have to be honest, the standard that has been around with Vinyl figures peaked for me sometime ago. To the point I had thought their was really only one way to make them. Then Vinyl Sugar, a Funko brand came along with Ghostbusters Vinyl Idolz (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 24, 2015) and I probably said something like this is different. I couldn’t have imagined in 4 years how much the vinyl figure landscape… Read More

In 2019 for Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary Funko made not 1, but 2 Ghostbusters branded cereals. The first, Ghostbusters Slimer Funko’s. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 16, 2019) The second and probably final Funko’s Ghostbusters cereal was in association with The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Corporation. Well, if it really existed.
