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
