Haynes Insight Ghostbusters Ectomobile Manual

haynesectobook

Earlier this year I wrote that Inside Editions would be publishing (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, April 29, 2017) a Haynes (UK) Ghostbusters workshop manual. Written by Troy Benjamin and Marc Sumerak. Illustrations by Ian Moores.

I was born long after the 1959 Cadillac Series 62 Miller-Meteor was built. I wouldn’t have seen a Haynes (US) manual in stores for any 1950s Cadillacs, let alone an Ectomobile.

Nearly 60 years later, Haynes, Insight Editions, Sony/Ghost Corps, and ghostheads had the foresight to add to the Ghostbusters franchise. Covering multiple Cadillacs along with vehicle equipment. While that could be enough Ghostbusters Ectomobile Owner’s Workshop Manual also delves into Ghostbusters gadgetry.

Playmobil US Ghostbusters TV Spots

I haven’t had satellite in more than a year. Even if I did I wouldn’t have been watching a network of cartoons. Paul R. from Spook Central (Facebook) was and saw a TV spot for Playmobil (US) Ghostbusters sets.

A bit odd, the US version isn’t on Playmobil (YouTube) channel. Although the UK version is. Paul found the US version at iSpot.

Better Quarters Way Off Campus

It’s been less than two months since I moved. If you followed a little of the progress through Ecto-Containment’s Facebook page you know that I moved out of Jersey, had to wait for movers to deliver things, hook up internet, and I’ve been watching 1990s professional wrestling.

That didn’t mean I wasn’t reading, listening, and sometimes watching “news from the world ‘o Gozer.” I’ve been wanting to get back to Ecto-Containment so I can write about Ghostbusters and add new content.

If you’ve been here since before July it’s noticeable I updated Ecto-Containment with a new and updated layout. Including updated Ecto-Containment logo and new (in a long time) site browser icon.

Photo originally from Kenner, I don’t own any display signs.

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 file and uploaded it to Google Drive folder.* I’ll also add the items in this post and when possible update the file Prices sometimes were gauged from what was recently listed on eBay. If their isn’t a price, please make a serious offer. Prices are listed in USD.

*Link removed to fill orders.

Toys, figures, and collectibles were bought from December 2010 throughout 2011. Toys are in box or on card with most, if not all its packaging and any accessories. Some exceptions may apply. Their may be wear in boxes or to cards, particularly from the 1980s. From 2010 to July 2017 toys, figures, and collectibles come from a smoke free home.

What am I selling? Mostly Ghostbusters and He-Man. Classic Collection Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. A couple of items from Back To The Future.

Dinosaur Species Named After Zuul

Get ready for part of a fictional essay I could have written in 3rd grade. And if Ghostbusters II had been around in 1985. Dinosaurs use to look like big lizards. Zuul, called a dog is “some kind of big lizard.”

Long before Ghostbusters and afterwards scientists/paleontologists have discovered more details about different species of dinosaurs. While some looked like something the Ghostbusters could have battled I never would have thought a race of dinosaurs would look “close enough” to a Terror Dog to be named after the minion of Gozer.

An armored dinosaur species, technically an ankylosaur once roamed present day northern Montana eating plants like there wouldn’t be a tomorrow.
