Matty Collector Ghost Trap Un-Boxing From 2012


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. Continue reading


Matty Collector Neutrino Wand Un Boxing


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 was able to capture most of the details. I’ll be working on a lengthy review as well. I’ll have it up sometime this evening. I also want to film at least one video when I’m able to.


Matty Collector Ecto-Goggles Un-Boxed


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 first if my chosen shipping method meant my delivery would take that much longer and tracking updates would be further delayed. Then I found out ghostheads who chose UPS experienced the same tracking issues with Mattel’s shipping supplier. When I found out a ghosthead one state away had received his on August 21 I figured mine would arrive the following day. And so it did! I trust my mailman, knew the package would be safe, and that is a reason I chose regular mail.

With my schedule and later on an unexpected traffic detour at a highway intersection I didn’t have much free time to “play” with my new Ecto-Goggles. Although other ghostheads have already shared pictures and videos I also wanted to share un-boxing pictures and videos.

More of a review may be posted in a separate update.
