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

I’ve been looking for Kenner Instructions I didn’t have (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, June 6, 2013) since at least 2013. Number 1 on the list, Kenner Ecto-Goggles & Ecto-Popper instructions. While four years later I haven’t found or been contacted about the original US instructions, we’re all a little closer to some kind of instructions. If you have a US or English version of Kenner The Real Ghostbusters Ecto-Goggles & Ecto-Popper instructions that can… Read More

When I gave my first impression about Matty Collector’s Ecto Goggles on August 26, 2013 I figured that’s the last I would have wrote about them. Within a few days, then about a month later things changed with my pair of Matty Ecto Goggles. I thought I commented about this on the site, (might have been during the transition) of course I can’t find it now. When putting the 3 AAA batteries… Read More

  With new Kenner toy write ups can come new scans of card backs. While writing about Mini Ghosts and beginning to write about Monsters I scanned all of the Mini ghost and so far two of the six Monsters card backs. I finished adding them last night. In related Kenner site news the un-boxing experience I created with my Ecto-Goggles/Ecto-Popper from August 2013 has been added back to the site.

Intro: Three days ago I had a chance after about half a day to un-box my new Matty Collector Ecto Goggles. I got to experience what Dan Aykroyd as Dr. Ray Stantz did during the Hotel Sedgewick scenes. I was going to give a first and second impression. I felt my impressions might be a little out of place with the un-boxing. I decided to write my own review. Shipping: This is… Read More

On August 15, 2013 Mattel’s adult collector brand Matty Collector began selling their Ghostbusters™ movie style Ecto-Goggles™ to the rest of us. I ordered my pair and waited pretty patiently with other ghostheads across the United States and sometimes the world for them to arrive. I know I chose regular mail. Still I didn’t know why the tracking system Mattel’s shipping supplier uses only worked at the beginning. I wasn’t sure at… Read More

I’ve owned two Kenner Ecto-Goggles/Ecto-Popper since 2011. Neither were mint in box and it took buying two of them (not the original plan) to make my current and only Ecto-Visors as complete as possible. Neither toy or inserts were in any plastic bagging. I’m pretty sure Kenner once included a paper instructions sheet for them. What I’ve done is try to recreate a un-boxing experience how I could so we could enjoy… Read More

I don’t know if it’s the way toy companies have evolved since the 1980s or it’s my perception of companies as a toy collector. Kenner could have easily sold the P.K.E Meter™ separately. Fortunately for kids they didn’t. The Ecto-Goggles™ are another example of how cool Kenner was in the ‘80s. Like my earlier perception Kenner could have just sold them separately. They included a miniature rubber version of the nutrona wand… Read More
