This wasn’t entirely unexpected news. As stated in the press release Hasbro and Sony are partners with the recent (not talked about by me yet) Ghostbusters Transformers Ecto-1 Ectrotron. Which is also part of the current Ghostbusters/Transformers comic book series from IDW Publishing. The fun part for ghostheads is Hasbro ties (sorta) to the original The Real Ghostbusters. Kenner was the “master toy company” for real Ghostbusters toys during 1980 something. Sometime after the series… 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
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
I’ve added a new item (link removed as EGBs Ecto-1 has been sold) to the Ecto-Containment Store. Around 2012 I bought an Extreme Ghostbusters Ecto-1 sealed in box, until 2015. Now, during Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary, it was for sale. ø Firing Pop-Up Missile Launcher! ø Blazing Lights & Action Sounds! ø Awesome Action Ghost Trap! ø Fits All “EGB” Action Figures! I’ve owned this Extreme Ghostbusters Ecto-1 in box since around 2012…. Read More
Before their could ever be a The Real Ghostbusters version of ECTO-1 from Kenner, their had to be a prototype and approval from guys in casual apparel. An internal photo print of said prototype was posted by the Facebook group, Ghostbusters Incorporated Worldwide. This proto Ecto-1 is based off the The Real Ghostbusters promo. It still looks cool, feels delicate and doesn’t appear it would fit a single figure, let alone three. Remember… Read More
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… Read More
One of our contacts behind the marketing of Lego Dimensions (US) sent additional information, (during last weeks snow clean up) and a trailer for when a few LEGO doctors meet up at the same time. Yeah, I know. For the first time in any LEGO videogame, characters and vehicles from some of the biggest entertainment brands in the universe converge in LEGO® Dimensions™. In a new short trailer illustrating the game’s crazy, possible mash-ups, Dr…. Read More
Lego Dimensions (US) Ghostbusters level pack is available now. If being a Ghostbusters Lego game of sorts isn’t enough reason to want to add this your LEGO Dimensions game, the great people behind the games were nice enough to send me an email.
Just in time for New Years 2016 LEGO sent customers a January 2016 catalog. As expected their Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, November 11, 2015) was prominently featured. It reminded me of The Real Ghostbusters Magazines posters. Until or if ghostheads get any more Ghostbusters Legos I scanned the cover and four additional pages for preservation. I made a PDF file from those scans. Lego’s Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ (75827) can be bought… Read More
Funko recently unveiled two new Ghostbusters Dorbz. This time, they’re going bigger.
