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.

Playmobil US Ghostbusters TV Spots

playmobilgbstvspot

I haven’t had satellite in more than a year. Even if I did I wouldn’t have been watching a network of cartoons. Paul R. from Spook Central (Facebook) was and saw a TV spot for Playmobil (US) Ghostbusters sets.

A bit odd, the US version isn’t on Playmobil (YouTube) channel. Although the UK version is. Paul found the US version at iSpot.

Ecto-Containing Laser Video

At the very end of January, Paul R. from Spook Central shared a Ghostbusters video in part as ghosthead Lanny White had asked him for it. Prior, I had a lesser quality copy which I had kinda forgotten about.

SFX Museum Vol. 1 is part of a feature that’s on the Japanese Laserdisc version of Ghostbusters. I don’t personally know if was featured on any North American Ghostbusters Laserdiscs.

The SFX feature is in English with Japanese subtitles. The four interviews in the feature talk about Ghostbusters special effects with Ivan Reitman, Michael C. Gross, Richard Edlund, and John Bruno.

With permission I’ve uploaded SFX Museum Vol. 1 to Ecto-Containment’s YouTube channel. It’s also under the newly created Lasers page.

Ecto-Containing Videos

I’ve been watching Ghostbusters videos on-line for at least seventeen years. When it became possible to save said videos in the 21 Century I would when possible. Adding them with just enough organization to multiple Ghostbusters folders either on my computers, former diskettes, and CD-Rs.

I want to share what I’ve collected and organize it on-line for ghostheads through Ecto-Containment’s YouTube channel for historical and entertainment value.

Empire Ghostbusters Magazine PDFs

So 5 days ago I scanned my physical copy of Empire UK from June 2016. As in my search beforehand I didn’t come across a free digital version. My scans were the covers, inside content, and thankfully just the Ghostbusters articles. After converting the files into pretty high-res and very large PDFs they were added (Ghostbusters Firehouse Blog Post, April 15, 2017) to Ghostbusters Firehouse.

Unbeknownst to me and I’m guessing most ghostheads the real, full PDF from Empire UK, June 2016 had been added to some archive of internet. I only found that out after Paul R. from Spook Central sent me an email.

Ghostheads usually can improve on what’s already been done.

Mad, Cracked, And People Weekly Added To Ghostbusters Firehouse

Recently after writing about UK fast food franchise Wimpy and their Ghostbusters II kids meal commercial (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, March 31, 2017) I was wondering if ghostheads had a digital copy of UK magazine Empire from June 2016. That also had me thinking about MAD Movie Classics (Ghostbusters Firehouse Blog Post, February 7, 2015) special. I asked at Ecto-Containment’s Facebook page if someone had a digital copy of either publication. While their hasn’t been an exact match yet, ghosthead Alex Newborn shared scans from one of his Facebook albums.

Within the one album were scans of Ghostbusters articles from People WeeklyCracked, and MAD magazines. With Alex Newborn’s permission I’ve saved the files, cleaned them up some where necessary and made PDF files of just the Ghostbusters periodicals.

Six new magazines have been added to the Magazine Rack. (Ghostbusters Firehouse) Where I’ve organized magazines, comics, a coloring book, and more by month and year. Some exceptions apply with Ghostbusters: The Video Game. (Ghostbusters Firehouse)
