In 2011 Matty Collector went beyond our childhood nostalgia, recreating (Real) Ghostbusters figures based on the kind of figures kids had in 1970 something. I had all 4 Retro-Action The Real Ghostbusters. I sold Retro-Action Peter, Egon, and Winston in previous years. Retro-Action Ray, “the heart” of the Retro-Action Real Ghostbusters could make a great addition to a collection or for a ghosthead in the 21st Century to play with. “Who You Gonna… Read More

In November 2015 Hollywood Collectibles Group just in time for Black Friday began selling their 1:4 Peter Venkman. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, November 27, 2015) Less than two full years later Hollywood Collectibles Group has 1:4 Ray Stantz ready for pre-order to take up ghostheads display space.

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!

Yesterday, the first photo (that I saw) of actual Diamond Select Toys Ghostbusters figures was shared by David aka tmnt_hunter209 through his iconosquare account. These three figures (part of Series 1) are beginning to arrive at Toys ‘R Us (US). They retail for $12.99 USD each. These are the basic figures without the rooftop diorama pieces. Ghostbusters Selects will arrive at additional retailers, including the on-line variety in January 2016.

Around this years San Diego Comic Con when Funko/Vinyl Sugar‘s Ghostbusters Vinyl Idolz were out there in the wild I was checking the usual on-line retail sites so I could buy them. Still to my knowledge no ghosthead who isn’t an employee of Funko knows why their isn’t a Vinyl Idolz Winston. I sorta preferred the SDCC exclusive versions. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 11, 2015) A reasonable price alluded me within the US…. Read More

If you’ve ever read or collected a toy line you know its a foregone conclusion that the company behind that line is going to make a variant of said figures. Matty what’s their name were practically known for doing this with Ghostbusters. In a different way, Funko and their brands have done something similar (though to their credit better) with both their Pops! and Vinyl Idolz. I wasn’t surprised when I unexpectedly… Read More

Because ghostheads needed more Ghostbusters vinyl figures 😀 Funko and Vinyl Sugar created these small, internationally inspired? Ghostbusters Dorbz! Unlike the choice to make only Peter, Ray, and Egon Vinyl Idolz finally Winston gets his second vinyl figure. Let’s take a more individual detailed look.
