Funko recently 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.
At last month’s Toy Fair New York aka NYTF, one of the collectible items Cryptozoic Entertainment had on display (GBI Blog Post, February 14, 2016) is the upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS Fan Club Collector Kit.
As I was too young for the official fan club (GBI Blog Post, June 8, 2014) and somehow missed out on Ghostbusters cereal’s “Be a Ghostbuster” cereal premium (GBI Blog Post, October 20, 2014) thirty two years later finally, I get to officially be part of a Ghostbusters fan club! 😀
Even though I wanted to with GBI, I never quite had the financial means to keep mass quantities of fan club materials to give to “franchises.” Continue reading
Around this years San Diego Comic Con when Funko/Vinyl Sugar‘s Ghostbusters Vinyl Idolz were out there in the wild I was checking the usual on-line retail sites so I could buy them. Still to my knowledge no ghosthead who isn’t an employee of Funko knows why their isn’t a Vinyl Idolz Winston. I sorta preferred the SDCC exclusive versions. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 11, 2015) A reasonable price alluded me within the US. Last year I bought something similar with Funko’s SDCC Marshmallow Covered Movie Pops!. (iRich Blog Post, December 28, 2014)
With some of the exclusivity out of reach I ended up buying Vinyl Idolz Peter Venkman first from Barnes & Noble‘s website. Vinyl Idolz Ray Stantz and Vinyl Idolz Egon Spengler came from an eBay seller in NJ. I was able to save some more that way. 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.

Vinyl Sugar, a Funko company (sure that works) revealed during June three upcoming San Diego Comic Con Ghostbusters Vinyl Idolz exclusives. A touch of paint + a limited number made + SDCC sticker divided by the square root of being a SDCC exclusive = second and third party mark ups on-line.
As a quick aside I would have written about them sooner if it hadn’t been for personal obligations wondering if we would need multiple mortgages.
Let’s take a look at these exclusive variants. Continue reading
Recently a technology company released a digital watch. The core of the produce section watch is the same, their designs, style, and even the way they’re made varies. Did you know another company that invented technology also was involved in the watch business back in the 1980s?
Amongst the upper echelon of Ghostbusters merchandise, originally meant for children, also stylish enough for adults is The Real Watch, watches based on the Ghostbusters and The Real Ghostbusters license. Continue reading
As I previously wrote about (Ecto-Containment Blog Post) I wasn’t a fan of Extreme Ghostbusters. Which even in recent years around the only season of the animated series seemed strange (in my neighborhood or yours) that I wouldn’t be a fan of something Ghostbusters. It couldn’t mean I wouldn’t have an interest in its toy line eventually. Trendmasters, a company who once shelled out the big bucks for Godzilla ponied up to bring us new Ghostbusters toys.
During a probably mundane trip to our nearest Big K-Mart in Fall 2000 I went downstairs and was checking out the toy section. Almost like finding buried treasure, either all or most of Trendmasters Extreme Ghostbusters toys were still available. I had spent a good part of 1999 and 2000 saving for a Proton Pack replica. I was also starting to buy Ghostbusters collectibles on a popular auction site. I didn’t buy a single Extreme Ghostbusters toy from them. In a way it worked out as a ghosthead I knew was interested for his collection. Continue reading
