Site Update: History Of A Rich Proton Pack Replica


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 case. I also wanted to take highly detailed photos before fruit robot devices. In that era I did once have a Sony Cyber-shot camera. Eventually it stopped working. I still have disposable cameras that are newer.

As I haven’t bought a digital camera in eighteen years or even replaced a Panasonic camcorder from 1991 I finally decided to use a fruit phone 6 camera to take the kinds of photos like I work for a major publishing company.


Writing about my Proton Pack replica could have been a few paragraphs. Or a short story. To write the masterpiece that is The History Of A Rich Proton Pack I needed 500+ words and two separate pages.


Site Update: Ecto-Containment Store Open


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, including placing an order is listed on Ecto-Containments Store front. Currently listed are Matty Collector figures.

Links below open new windows (or tabs) to each of the product sections. Thank you for visiting Ecto-Containment Store and look forward to your business.

Site Update: Kenner Mail Fraud Write Up


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 also a kinda sealed Topps Ghostbusters II trading card pack, (Ecto-containment Blog Post, February 5, 2018) and a Kenner Haunted Human second series ghost figure, Mail Fraud!

I hadn’t owned once since probably mom and dad were buying Haunted Human figures for me when I was about 9.

Here this one is, loose without its original card. Barely making its way as a fraud. It hung around my former garage for six years. With every other Haunted Human or second series ghost figure I own on Ecto-Containment, it was finally time to deliver.

Without further delay Mail Fraud is in your neighborhood!

Site Update: Kenner Fearsome Flush Write Up


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 page for this unique kind of toy and wrote about what was then Fearsome, yet today awesome.

Site Update: NECA Ghostbusters


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 1 as they called them included Slimer, Terror Dogs, a 15 inch Stay-Puft, and Gozer!

When I originally had Series 1, I opened them almost like it was Christmas 1987. I still have the loose figures 14 years later. Today I took photos and created a new page for my NECA collection. Which can also be found under the Toys navigation menu.

Site Updates: Matty Collector Ghostbusters Figures


Sticky Note: Ecto-Containment will continue to be at 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 Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II figures. Along with a 12 inch Ghostbusters II Egon/Ray “museum” set. It took into the evening to edit, resize, and watermark 60 + photos.

Today I created 23 new pages to mostly add photos of both six inch and twelve inch Matty Collector Ghostbusters photos. I haven’t written about most of these figures. I might eventually or the pages will be more about archiving and digital preservation.

All Matty Collector page links can be accessed by either clicking Matty Collector or hover over that part of Toys to see more navigation to Twelve Inch, and Six Inch figures. Where  each 12 inch or 6 inch Ghostbusters figure page is also listed.

New Kenner Collection Write Ups

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 which also hadn’t been photographed. I didn’t necessarily plan to write about them now, that’s what I’ve mostly done.

If I still have the toys I’ve taken new photos, added a new Ecto-Containment “watermark,” and replaced them with older Ectocontainment photos.
