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
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.
In 1985 Ralston brought us Ghostbusters cereal. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 8, 2014) In 1990 after the Ghostbusters franchise went into a type of slumber, (also personally know to me as “the dark times”) our beloved cereal had disappeared. Ghostbusters and its fandom would grow, anniversaries would see new merchandise, including things we could eat (GBI Blog Post, February 21, 2016) and drink. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, June 17, 2016) Sure, Twinkies are snack… Read More
IDW Publishing and Funko took what was probably an awesome meeting where the outcome will see Funko Pop Movie/TV characters in one off comics. Naturally you couldn’t have a Funko comics universe without Ghostbusters Pop Movies figures. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, August 16, 2014) Before they skyrocketed straight into the cultural zeitgeist, Funko’s Pop! vinyl figures started out for sale in comic shops. This May, they’re going back to the beginning by teaming with… Read More
Back in May Funko showed off upcoming Funko products. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, May 20, 2016) Maybe to the surprise of ghostheads, their was to be a new Ghostbusters Pop! Movies collectible! Not just one figure either. Fans wouldn’t have to buy them separately. However, ghostheads would have to buy them from Walmart as this 3 pack would be there exclusive. My nearest location barely carries Pops! and other nerd collectibles. Seeing how they… Read More
Yesterday Funko did some Periscoping video thingie. Where they were showing off some of their new and presumably upcoming products. Details are on the lite side. A new Pop! Movies Ghostbusters exclusive is coming to the blue retailer, Walmart. Jorge Rodiguez tweeted a screencap of the Ghostbusters three pack: @pituvision Walmart exclusive GhostBusters 3 Pack!!! pic.twitter.com/SY5rW0eupX — Jorge Rodriguez (@themassacre325) May 20, 2016 It seemed to only take a couple more years. Funko finally… Read More
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…. Read More
At New York Toy Fair from this past February Funko introduced Ghostbusters MyMojis. (GBI Blog Post, February 14, 2016) That was my introduction to either MyMojis or Funko’s version of it. What exactly is an MyMoji? From Funko’s MyMoji page: MyMojis combine beloved characters with the utility of emojis and the fun of collecting! Each blind-bag vinyl figure depicts a different emotion through the faces of characters from an assortment of popular titles. They retail for… Read More
Funko recently unveiled two new Ghostbusters Dorbz. This time, they’re going bigger.
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…. Read More
If you’ve ever read or collected a toy line you know its a foregone conclusion that the company behind that line is going to make a variant of said figures. Matty what’s their name were practically known for doing this with Ghostbusters. In a different way, Funko and their brands have done something similar (though to their credit better) with both their Pops! and Vinyl Idolz. I wasn’t surprised when I unexpectedly… Read More
