Matty Collector PKE Photos

mattypkecratetop

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 toys I wouldn’t for at least a couple more years. By then I didn’t see a need to review this P.K.E Meter. I did want to share photos on Ecto-Containment.

In July 2017 as I was moving and selling parts of my collection, I took a dozen photos. Nearly seven years later to its release I’m getting around to sharing photos.

Some Matty Collector Ghostbusters Sculpting

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 figures.

Here are additional photos of their Ghostbusters sculpts. On the side navigation menu you can also view the rest of their portfolio.

Hot Wheels The Real Ghostbusters Ecto-1

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 version. Which was a Mexican comic con exclusive. They’re marked up on a popular auction site upwards of $80 USD. The regular version, hopefully to be found at retailers on and off-line should cost considerably less. And what about that sweet card?

Rich Review: Matty Collector Ghost Trap

 mcghostrapcontents

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, which included a brand new sealed in box collectible Ghost Trap.

As the year the Earth was suppose to be destroyed by ancient culture’s beliefs began I was finally ready to buy a Matty Collector Ghost Trap from the source. I couldn’t because they were finally sold out. Not in a Mattel’s poor business practice way either. Fortunately their were some alternatives, I really didn’t want to pay a secondary or third party mark up.

I found a listing on a popular auction site with a buy it now option too. As luck would have it, the seller was in my state. I was able to buy a Matty Collector Ghost Trap for about what it would have originally cost with shipping. “Call it fate, call it karma…”  Continue reading “Rich Review: Matty Collector Ghost Trap”
