Ecto-Containment

With recent updates to Ecto-Containment it has a more personal and preferable layout. It includes more space with additional features, is free from ads*, (no more hopefully medical ads!) and finally allows for me to sell directly at Ecto-Containment. *I can monetize ads. I haven’t really looked into it. I may try it, I’m not sure I want ads. If you’ve visited Ecto-Containment, Ghostbusters International, multiple other Ghostbusters sites I had a hand… Read More

Throughout the month I’ve had a few posts for my Kenner The Real Ghostbusters collectibles I’ve been selling this year. I was recently hired at a new company, Selling just about all my Ghostbusters collectibles like it was a full time job isn’t as necessary. I’ve removed a few for sale posts on Ecto-Containment and Facebook with the exception of The Real Ghostbusters Fire House (Ecto-Containment Page) which I didn’t create a… Read More

In June 2000 I bought a Proton Pack replica. Styled somewhat after their look from Ghostbusters II. Eighteen years later I wrote The History Of A Rich Proton Pack Replica. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 13, 2018) Today, (bummer) 18 years later my Proton Pack replica is for sale. If you have the “tools and the talent” this Proton Pack replica could even be better than it originally was in June 2000. Sometime after… Read More

I’ve been wanting to write about and show off my Proton Pack replica I bought in June 2000 for years. A reason I waited so long is because in 2000 photos were taken of Jersey Ghostbusters stuff from both Polaroids and a disposable camera! At various times throughout the eighteen years I thought among the photos were more detailed shots from when the pack was newly purchased. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t ever the… Read More

I was 12 years old when Ghostbusters II was in theaters. It was closer to Thanksgiving 1989 then 4th of July when it made its theatrical release in the tiny hamlet of Nutley, NJ. Topps, the trading carding company of my youth mostly made sports cards. Which I had a big, yet unwrapped sealed bags worth until July 2017. Only a handful mattered to me for one reason or another. In 1989… Read More

A lot of photos I’ve taken of The Real Ghostbusters figures and other items include them on a worn The Real Ghostbusters poster. Probably in 2011 I bought it with a number of other small, loose items from a once popular auction site. I just needed that poster. Among those items, a Kenner The Real Ghostbusters “no ghost” logo armband. It originally would have been included with a Kenner Proton Pack. Their was… Read More

A rite of grade school passage. What plastic lunch box were you going to be defined by. What do you have in it for currency? For me above any ’80s cartoon franchise I liked, it was always going to be Ghostbusters. Just a minor problem in 1985 through most of 1986. I didn’t have a plastic Ghostbusters lunch box made by Thermos. Best to my recollection I didn’t know until years after the… Read More

This past October I added new photos and Kenner write ups. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 31, 2017) I couldn’t include one as I hadn’t found the Kenner Fearsome Flush I collected probably in 2011. It just hadn’t been unpacked. Yesterday along with the Matty Collector Stay-Puft (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, January 16, 2018) and N.E.C.A (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, January 16, 2018) updates I took photos of a Fearsome Flush. Today I created a new… Read More

You’re probably aware I have had a Matty Collector Ghostbusters collection (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, January 9, 2018) for a number of years now. The one Matty Collectible I hadn’t posted about exclusively or wrote about previously is their version of the traveler. That all changed today when I took photos, created a new page under Matty Collector, and wrote about the only 20 inch Stay-Puft! Photo Source: Ecto-Containment

Prior to Ghostbusters 20th Anniversary in 2004 N.E.C.A, released Ghostbusters collectibles for the 21 century. Early products included  (Extreme) Head Knockers. They were better versions of bobble heads. N.E.C.A also made the first detailed Ghostbusters figures. The kind of figures we would have wanted in 1984. Except for one problem, “likeness rights” or other reasoning prevented them from selling ghostheads at least 4 Ghostbusters figures. They did the next best thing, villians! Series… Read More

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… Read More
