Anovos Productions LLC announced yesterday, although I wrote about it today (GBI Blog Post, April 30, 2016) they’ll be selling a licensed Proton Pack Kit. Proton Pack frame sold separately. Lights and sound kits to eventually come. Matty Collector also neither offered kits or a complete Proton Pack prop toy. I suppose we were fortunate enough to have a Neutrino Wand. It had me thinking of early ghostheads who built a Proton Pack as… 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.

  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

Intro: The last time I owned a particle thrower that had lights and could vibrate was during the early 2000s. My prop Proton Pack replica and its accompanying wand didn’t have sound. During the 16th anniversary of Ghostbusters, that didn’t matter. I had a real Proton Pack and could become a Ghostbuster once again. Sometime during the early 2000s something went wrong and the pack has never worked correctly again. In recent years their… Read More

I ordered my Matty Collector/Epic Creations Neutrino Wand on Tuesday, December 17, 2013. It was suppose to ship through UPS, actually shipped through USPS (which I usually prefer) on December 19, 2013. It was delivered by my regular mailman yesterday, December 27, 2013. I took around 40 photos last night and have been editing them. I created a Matty Collector Neutrino Wand page to share an un-boxing experience with you. Hopefully I… Read More

During the 2013 SDCC, Matty Collector and Epic Movie Creations, an adult brand of Mattel announced an official Ghostbusters Neutrino (Nutrona) Wand. Neutrino was approved by some Sony department. At the end of last week, it went on sale to early access subscribers, where Mattel as always noted it could sell out before its launch date to the general public. Ghostheads and anyone else (without an early access subscription) can buy a Neutrino wand… Read More

Intro: Three days ago I had a chance after about half a day to un-box my new Matty Collector Ecto Goggles. I got to experience what Dan Aykroyd as Dr. Ray Stantz did during the Hotel Sedgewick scenes. I was going to give a first and second impression. I felt my impressions might be a little out of place with the un-boxing. I decided to write my own review. Shipping: This is… Read More

On August 15, 2013 Mattel’s adult collector brand Matty Collector began selling their Ghostbusters™ movie style Ecto-Goggles™ to the rest of us. I ordered my pair and waited pretty patiently with other ghostheads across the United States and sometimes the world for them to arrive. I know I chose regular mail. Still I didn’t know why the tracking system Mattel’s shipping supplier uses only worked at the beginning. I wasn’t sure at… Read More
