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. A high res version surfaced on February 2, 2018 thanks to Lance Dobersek. I wrote more about… Read More

Ghostbusters premiered to us regular folks (non celebs) on June 8, 1984. In recent years unofficially and officially the date has become Ghostbusters Day. Naturally its even more official during a milestone year for the Ghostbusters franchise. As ghostheads, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and their partners honor and celebrates not only Ghostbusters past, its present as well. What can we all be part of for Ghostbusters Day this year? Sony Pictures Entertainment has a… Read More

I heard about Ghostheads in the last year. At the time I dismissed it. Hear me out. It was and is a great idea for a documentary. With the film exploring ghostheads, franchises, and Ghostbusters culture impact from around the world unless their was expendable income, to quote Ghostbusters, “Where we gonna get the money?” Writer and Director Brendan Mertens (also a ghosthead himself) had a plan. Use a fund raising site… Read More

LEGO has announced the product or products they’ll be moving forward with from LEGO Ideas. Unfortunately, not that surprising they didn’t choose Sergio Herencias’ Ghostbusters Firehouse. (GB Inc. Blog Post) If we’re not getting Ghostbusters HQ yet, what will LEGO Idea will they make? LEGO Ideas #011 WALL-E Big congratulations to Angus MacLane who created this blocky version of everyone’s favorite hopelessly romantic robot. MacLane is a Pixar animator and director, who actually worked… Read More

Last month thanks to JBlake and originally Kenner I was able to share photos from The Real Ghostbusters Ghost Center. I didn’t think I’d be talking about anything ‘Ghost Center’ related within a month. During the usual eBay searches I came across brand new RGBs Shelf Talkers! :O

Not sure how I missed this, in August 2014 (whoops) ghosthead bobewan posted pictures of his custom Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse. Its based on instructions found on the interwebs. Building a Ghostbusters Firehouse from LEGOs in itself is pretty great. When its a gift for his son at Christmas its brought to another level. From bobewan: Hello All, wanted to share pics of the LEGO MOCs I made my son last christmas. I… Read More

I haven’t really wondered what The Real Ghostbusters figures could look like if Funko were to make them. I’ve been more concerned with trying to complete the actual Ghostbusters Movie Pops! (iRich) figures. I did think by now we would have heard Funko could be releasing Janine, (Ghostbusters) Dana, (probably as Gatekeeper) and Louis. Again, probably as his Keymaster version. While I’ve slowly been collecting Ghostbusters Movie Pops and thinking of more Ghostbusters… Read More

By now ghostheads (well most of us) have been reading IDW’s Ghostbusters/TMNT cross over mini series (GB Inc.) What if their was crossover artwork featuring both animated franchises? What could that look like? I never thought of that, fortunately for fans of both animated series Aaron Hazouri and Kirsty Swan did.

A ghosthead who goes by the handle Prologic9 bought Kenner The Real Ghostbusters first series hero figures and first series ghost figures off a popular auction site. Since he now owned them, he decided to try to recreate Kenner Ecto-Plazm. This somehow led to me spending numerous hours working on replicating the precise recipe for Kenner’s Ecto-Plazm. I’ve actually gotten about as close as you can all things considered, but I don’t even… Read More

Calgary artists Jackson Gee and Ross Hughes created this piece of The Real Ghostbusters art. It feels like his inspiration came of course from the series with a mix of comic art from Legion which was penciled by Steve Kurth and inked by Serge LaPointe. Original website text in French. Here’s what Jackson said about the piece: The Sandman was kinda scary. This cartoon was one of my faves of all time. Pen and… Read More
