In the first attempt (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 13, 2018) at having an on-line store, things didn’t go as well as I would have liked. That came down to not having a real/direct way through Ecto-Containment to process payments. This year because of recent updates I’m able to sell on site and with PayPal. Today I updated the Store with 6 Kenner The Real Ghostbusters toys. Separately I’m selling in the Store my Kenner… Read More

In 2011 I began preserving The Real Ghostbusters Magazine(s) (Ghostbusters Firehouse section) from my physical collection. The project wouldn’t have started or evolved without Paul Rudoff (Spook Central) or Matthew Jordan (Ghostbusters Wiki). The project as I knew it has been completed long since Ghostbusters had its 30th anniversary. “Five years later” as Paul completed his RGBs Magazine collection he contacted us about a regular cover for Fall 1989. (Ghostbusters Firehouse page) The physical issue I… Read More

Last year I wrote about fast food chain Wimpy and their Ghostbusters II commercial. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, March 31, 2017) In the cross promotion Wimpy had a Ghostbusters II meal box. On July 2, 2017 ghosthead, collector, and friend David Boozer who runs The Ghostbusters Vault left a comment about owning this very Wimpy meal box. Not to anyones surprise that knows me I replied about scans within a day. On my end,… Read More

I was 12 years old when Ghostbusters II was in theaters. It was closer to Thanksgiving 1989 then 4th of July when it made its theatrical release in the tiny hamlet of Nutley, NJ. Topps, the trading carding company of my youth mostly made sports cards. Which I had a big, yet unwrapped sealed bags worth until July 2017. Only a handful mattered to me for one reason or another. In 1989… Read More

A rite of grade school passage. What plastic lunch box were you going to be defined by. What do you have in it for currency? For me above any ’80s cartoon franchise I liked, it was always going to be Ghostbusters. Just a minor problem in 1985 through most of 1986. I didn’t have a plastic Ghostbusters lunch box made by Thermos. Best to my recollection I didn’t know until years after the… Read More

I admit I also have ulterior motive for adding 24 figures I own (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, January 9, 2018) to Ecto-Containment. I’m looking to sell them. I’m asking $60 USD per Twelve Inch Ghostbusters figure. Or $240 USD for all four. Can sell individually or as a set. I’m asking $75.00 USD for the 12 inch Egon/Ray Ghostbusters II set. Twelve Inch Ghostbusters figures come in their original white mailers. Figures packaging haven’t… Read More

Before I have to move I’d like to try to sell Ghostbusters collectibles, (with some other 1980s properties) from my collection. I’d prefer at this time if possible not to have to ship items. Particularly large items. That might depend on price, the item, and my personal time in getting ready to move. That’s why I haven’t tried to sell on eBay up to now. I’ve made a list as a PDF… Read More

Wimpy, originally Wimpy Grills is an international fast food chain that surprisingly, (to me) was founded in Bloomington, Indiana by Edward Gold during 1934. Why the recent surprise to me? Growing up on the east coast of the United States I had never heard of Wimpy. The oldest fast food chain, (which is also not in all 50 United States) that I knew of is White Castle. Wimpy, (yes named after the Popeye… Read More

  Three years ago, almost to the day I wrote about my Hardee’s Ghostbusters II Banner. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, March 23, 2014) In my post I had shared a copy of Hardee’s Ghostbusters II commercial to my very basic YouTube channel. I eventually wanted to talk more about this Ghostbusters II fast food cross promotion. Why now? Last weekend I sold a friend of mine the only Hardee’s Ghostbusters II Banner for… Read More

As we get a little closer to Playmobil (US) releasing their Ghostbusters play sets, Playmobil has shared new, detailed photos of ECTO-1. Let’s go for a ride!
