About 2 weeks ago videos and memes of Annie Potts, who plays the iconic role of Janine Melnitz, the Ghostbusters cranky receptionist hit the interwebs. Except for here as I’m retro blogging. That’s a real thing right? This isn’t reused and some computer generated footage of Ms. Potts as Janine from GHOSTBUSTERS. Or Annie Potts kinda looking like Janine selling us DirecTV in the 2000s. She is better than that, Ghostbusters is above… Read More
Last year Spirit Halloween took their Ghostbusters license to the next level with new Ghostbusters costumes, prop replicas, and more. (GBI Blog Post, August 30, 2018) Those items far as I know are still available to buy along with a storage facility full of new items. Full disclosure I don’t own any of Spirit Halloween’s Ghostbusters items. As you may know I own a couple of Ghostbusters flight suits, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, March… Read More
Ghostheads had already known Chronicle Collectibles are making high end (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 29, 2019) The Real Ghostbusters collectibles. During last week’s San Diego Comic Con, Chronicle Collectibles revealed their upcoming to scale Ecto-1. Toys news site, ToyArk took photos as part of their SDCC coverage. Overall this is The Real Ghostbusters series Ecto-1 I remember. As the figures aren’t posable, it stands to reason “the car” won’t have doors that open. Either way this… Read More
Diamond Select Toys produced a couple of series (Diamond Select Toys Blog Post) featuring The Real Ghostbusters figures. Although posable, they don’t quite capture, (from what I’ve seen of them) “the Kenner feel.” A reason I don’t own any of them. On a higher end collector market, Chronicle Collectibles is producing all 4 The Real Ghostbusters figures along with Slimer. The bad: They’re more like statues, total cost, near $600 USD*, and Slimer is… Read More
I have to be honest, the standard that has been around with Vinyl figures peaked for me sometime ago. To the point I had thought their was really only one way to make them. Then Vinyl Sugar, a Funko brand came along with Ghostbusters Vinyl Idolz (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 24, 2015) and I probably said something like this is different. I couldn’t have imagined in 4 years how much the vinyl figure landscape… Read More
Diamond Select Toys posted photos of their series 4 Ghostbusters Selects. In their packaging! Additional photos after the break.
Funko recently announced wave 2 of their Pop! Tees. Among the likes of some jokerish space civil war t-shirts is the above Ghostbusters Pop! t-shirt. We know Pop! Movies Winston Zeddemore (iRich Blog Post, December 28, 2014) is smaller in scale, that isn’t a reason to exclude him. You may remember Funko originally released (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 11, 2015) a Ghostbusters Pop! Tee as a SDCC 2015 exclusive. Which was later sold at retailers and on-line…. Read More
During February’s New York Toy Fair Diamond Select Toys gave ghostheads their first look (GBI Blog Post, February 16, 2016) at Ghostbusters Glass Tumblers. Where I wrote: (Am I suppose to quote myself?) Depending on your age you may remember licensed character glassware. Which may have been part of a food promotion, (for a price) maybe from a gas staton, mail away, or easy as buying in store. Their was a time depending on geographic location… Read More
It’s a big month for Diamond Select Toys Ghostbusters Selects. Series 2, featuring Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, and Dana Barrett as The Gatekeeper available from better in store and on-line retailers this week. DST also announced Series 3 and Series 4!
Lego Dimensions (US) has a section on their YouTube page known as Character Spotlights. I saw today that Lego Dimensions had a character spotlight (uploaded yesterday) on one Dr. Peter Venkman. Of course it has to be Pete Venkman. 😉 If more Ghostbusters character spotlights are made, I can also post about them. Sources: Lego Dimensions (YouTube US)
One of our contacts behind the marketing of Lego Dimensions (US) sent additional information, (during last weeks snow clean up) and a trailer for when a few LEGO doctors meet up at the same time. Yeah, I know. For the first time in any LEGO videogame, characters and vehicles from some of the biggest entertainment brands in the universe converge in LEGO® Dimensions™. In a new short trailer illustrating the game’s crazy, possible mash-ups, Dr…. Read More
