Yesterday I had some opinions about Spirit Halloween new Ghostbusters costumes. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, August 19, 2019) The post was long and I didn’t have the time before work to talk about Spirit Halloween other Ghostbusters merchandise. This is that post.
Full disclosure I don’t own any of Spirit Halloween’s Ghostbusters items. I use to own Matty Collector Prop Toys and still own a 19 year old Proton Pack replica. Should the time come and it makes “good financial sense,” whether it’s from Spirit Halloween or elsewhere I’d like to own similar items again.
See something strange in the neighborhood? Now you’ll know who to call with this Ghostbusters Walkie Talkie. Grab one for you and all your friends and start feeling like real ghost hunters.

Opinion: This is an interesting Ghostbusters accessory. It’s basically an 80s style Motorola walkie talkie replica. Fun name. Without their branding. The real deal can be expensive and believe it or not may still work with emergency personnel today.
If you’re putting together a costume…uh uniform and want to duplicate the look and a favorite scene from Ghostbusters, it’s great Spirit Halloween basically made a walkie talkie…with a sound chip.
That’s right, as an officially licensed product, it has 5 lines of dialogue from the only time in Ghostbusters when Peter and Ray (later a bit of Egon) talked over their walkie talkies. Depending on the volume, I feel at a con for example one may not hear the quotes. Also, like a pull string toy from childhood, the lines may get old quick without the rest of Ghostbusters.
I do like that ghost hunters, (really Spirit Halloween) have an included holster. The obvious “no ghost” logo hurts the realism of being a Ghostbuster.
