Ecto-Containment

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

Sticky Note: Ecto-Containment will continue to be at ecto-containment.com throughout 2018. Last week I began the first of two current site updates. Creating 4 new pages to add 12 inch Matty Collector Ghostbusters to Ecto-Containment. I also organized the Matty Collector Prop Toys menu. I had most of the 12 inch figures on the site before having to prepare for winter storm Grayson. Yesterday I took photos of the 6 inch Matty Collector… Read More

In December 2010 Matty Collector began getting into producing functioning Ghostbusters “props.” Which I’ve called prop toys in comparison to ghostheads who have the “tools and the talent” to build their own. I’m not one of those ghostheads. I was probably happy to be able to buy the first Ghostbusters tool we see used in Ghostbusters. December 2010 was technically before Ecto-Containment existed. I wasn’t writing first impressions or Rich Reviews. With Matty Collector prop… Read More

Over at GBI in the Ghost Corps Mattel Display (GBI Blog Post, April 16, 2016) on May 1, 2016 in the comments section I added the new toys with pricing if I knew them. Today thanks to Matthew Jordan who oversees the Ghostbusters Wiki and David Boozer we now have further information.

With Mattel Ghostbusters/2016 toys (slowly, depending on location) reaching retailers this month and Diamond Select Toys Ghostbusters Selects also at retailers it gave me an opportunity to finally post something I never got to in January for some reason. Eleventyplex, a traditional sculpting company once worked with Matty Collector on their Ghostbusters figures. These sculpts included Dana Barrett, Librarian, Taxi Ghost, and Cinema Ghost. The ghost figures were accessories to Matty Collector Ghostbusters… Read More

Sony Pictures VP of global consumer products, Mark Caplan has provided information about what ghostheads can expect from their business partnership with Mattel in the next year. While we’re probably not getting those The Real Ghostbusters figures (Ghostbusters Inc. Blog Post, July 25, 2014) we’ll see new Ghostbusters figures and have a Proton Pack.

Previously Mattel’s die cast brand Hot Wheels has produced and sold (GB Inc. Blog Post, December 12, 2014) ECTO-1s in various sizes. Less then a year later on the cusp of The Real Ghostbusters 30th anniversary Mattel finally made an Ecto-1, “as seen in the hit series The Real Ghostbusters.” If you want your RGBs Hot Wheels to have more of a “on duty” feel, their’s also a glow in the dark… Read More

  Intro: On October 17, 2011 Matty Collector brought ghostheads the second officially licensed Ghostbusters™ prop toy, the Ghost Trap. The first was the P.K.E Meter, which originally went on sale in December 2010. During that October Ghostbusters retail wise, Mattel had made a somewhat odd decision to sell expensive new Ghostbusters collectibles at the same time. I always felt they should have been spread out over a quarter. Personally I couldn’t afford what I wanted,… Read More

When I gave my first impression about Matty Collector’s Ecto Goggles on August 26, 2013 I figured that’s the last I would have wrote about them. Within a few days, then about a month later things changed with my pair of Matty Ecto Goggles. I thought I commented about this on the site, (might have been during the transition) of course I can’t find it now. When putting the 3 AAA batteries… Read More

After mostly leaving 2013 behind, I was able to make time to film a three and a half minute video of demonstrating how a Matty Collector/Neutrino Wand operates. While I know how to work a particle thrower, how to transfer the video, the time it would take to upload, and an attempt to edit was somewhat loss on me until early this evening. Using my fruit phone and because of the length… Read More
