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

When Ghostbusters was celebrating its 24th anniversary I began to preserve out of print Ghostbusters content, adding it to then Ectocontainment. Trivia: I’m pretty sure it was The Real Ghostbusters Jumbo Coloring Book. (PDF file) I didn’t even have a physical copy of it! In 2011 I did have plenty of physical Real/Ghostbusters out of print materials to preserve. Mainly my legacy with The Real Ghostbusters Magazine(s) and NOW The Real Ghostbusters comics. They… Read More

On July 3, 1984 as The United States was celebrating independence, Mark Lister and Jim Garvey founded the official Ghostbusters Fan Club. (GBI Blog Post, June 8, 2014) Related: Ghostbusters Official Fan Club. (Spook Central) For about the price of a streaming subscription today, ($8.95 USD in 1984) ghostheads received a number of items, including a membership card.

Ecto Crank who I only knew of from Twitter is a UK ghosthead who sells custom made Ghostbusters themed patches and pins. “Occasional creative,” Ecto Crank created a Ghostbusters Paranormal Activity Book. Similar to The Real Ghostbusters activity books ghostheads could have spent time with in 1988. …activity book filled with Ghostbusters themed puzzles, colouring sheets, word searches, etc. designed initially for franchises to give away at conventions but could easily be used… Read More

In June 2000 I bought a Proton Pack replica. Styled somewhat after their look from Ghostbusters II. Eighteen years later I wrote The History Of A Rich Proton Pack Replica.

If you have the “tools and the talent” this Proton Pack replica could even be better than it originally was in June 2000. Sometime after… Read More

A reason I waited so long is because in 2000 photos were taken of Jersey Ghostbusters stuff from both Polaroids and a disposable camera! At various times throughout the eighteen years I thought among the photos were more detailed shots from when the pack was newly purchased. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t ever the… Read More

You’re probably aware I have had a Matty Collector Ghostbusters collection (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, January 9, 2018) for a number of years now. The one Matty Collectible I hadn’t posted about exclusively or wrote about previously is their version of the traveler. That all changed today when I took photos, created a new page under Matty Collector, and wrote about the only 20 inch Stay-Puft! Photo Source: Ecto-Containment
