Ecto-Containment

When Ghostbusters was celebrating its 24th anniversary I began to preserve out of print Ghostbusters content, adding it to then Ectocontainment. Trivia: I’m pretty sure it was The Real Ghostbusters Jumbo Coloring Book. (PDF file) I didn’t even have a physical copy of it! In 2011 I did have plenty of physical Real/Ghostbusters out of print materials to preserve. Mainly my legacy with The Real Ghostbusters Magazine(s) and NOW The Real Ghostbusters comics. They… 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

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

Since the end of January, I’ve been working on a new section for Ecto-Containment, a basic on-line Store. The purpose of having a store at Ecto-Containment is to sell mostly Ghostbusters items from my personal collection. Their could be non Ghostbusters items added. Why is Ecto-Containments store basic? I’m not using commerce software and don’t have a PayPal business account. That’s why their aren’t add-to-cart buttons and directly checking out through Ecto-Containment. More information,… 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

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

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

Sticky Note: Ecto-Containment will continue to be at ecto-containment.com throughout 2018. Last week I began the first of two current site updates. Creating 4 new pages to add 12 inch Matty Collector Ghostbusters to Ecto-Containment. I also organized the Matty Collector Prop Toys menu. I had most of the 12 inch figures on the site before having to prepare for winter storm Grayson. Yesterday I took photos of the 6 inch Matty Collector… Read More

When I began collecting real Ghostbusters six years ago I eventually wanted to write about them all and include photos. The way I did collect, wanted to write about them, and real life didn’t always allow for that. Before I moved in July and sold some of my Kenner The Real Ghostbusters collection I took some new photos of toys I hadn’t photographed in previous years. This month I took new photos, some… Read More

It’s been less than two months since I moved. If you followed a little of the progress through Ecto-Containment’s Facebook page you know that I moved out of Jersey, had to wait for movers to deliver things, hook up internet, and I’ve been watching 1990s professional wrestling. That didn’t mean I wasn’t reading, listening, and sometimes watching “news from the world ‘o Gozer.” I’ve been wanting to get back to Ecto-Containment so I… Read More

Going back to about March I finally had the paperwork to settle my parent’s estate. I wasn’t 100% ready to try until end of Spring. I would have liked to have had more time for Ghostbusters blog posts and site content around Ghostbusters 33rd anniversary and Ghostbusters II 28th anniversary. I kept up when possible through the sites social media accounts. The week going into Father’s Day I called my real estate agent… Read More
