In May the box subscription service Loot Crate announced a new Limited Edition Crate. One that would celebrate the Ghostbusters film franchise for both the 20 and 21 centuries. With Ghostbusters (2016) on the horizon from Columbia Pictures, a Sony Pictures Entertainment company, new and “classic” merchandise could mean an all Ghostbusters crate was indeed possible.
Last month around Ghostbusters 32 anniversary ghostheads were able to place their orders. Personally I don’t subscribe to any subscription box services. For a limited edition all Ghostbusters collectibles, I wouldn’t normally need to give buying a second thought. I did as with Ghostbusters (2016) being the shiny new Ghostbusters movie I knew their could be more Ghostbusters (2016) collectibles then GHOSTBUSTERS ones.
I decided if their was one or more items I didn’t want I could sell hopefully for a small profit. I took a plunge into a river of Ghostbusters collectible. Which shipped in early July and arrived from California a little earlier this week.
Before I talk about the items and show 22 additional photos I will provide the following:
If you ordered this Limited Edition Loot Crate and either haven’t received your order yet and would like the element of surprise to have your own enjoyment, you may want to read my reviews of other Ghostbusters collectibles. They can be found under iRich.

Metal Die-cast company Jada Toys Inc. has created a line of Ghostbusters figures made from a metal die-cast.
I know you’re asking yourself, what no Stay-Puft? “We won’t pay.” Thanks to ghosthead Jason Bischoff we know Jada knows their target audience.
Each of the individual 4″ Ghostbusters figures will retail for around $20 USD. With the slimed Peter and Slimer 2-pack retailing for around $40 USD. Estimated to arrive during June 2016.

Nerd Block, one of a kajillion box subscription services from time-to-time has Ghostbusters related items included with whatever that particular month’s theme is.
Eventually some, if not all items are no longer exclusive. With the t-shirt don’t hold me to that. I’m not subscribed to any box collectibles. Which is why I’m writing about these roughly 8 months later.
During the first week of March 2016 I saw through one of their internet ads Shirt Punch, (one of those deal sites where items are no longer for sale 24 hrs later) were offering Ghostbusters t-shirts and the former Nerd Block items. As I had been wanting both the t-shirt (you know in my size) and the Ghost Trap, I went full impulse buy. Continue reading
The second US version of Ghostbusters Stay-Puft marshmallows.
You may remember in October I wrote a few posts about Ghostbusters confectionaries. (Ecto-Containment Tag) That is if you live in either the UK or a country where they can be shipped to. Since I imagine the cost of shipping candy which will either melt or expire could be very costly for an international company, in North America we either wrote about them or dealt with our emotions. Or both. 😀
One of those confectionaries, Stay-Puft Marshmallows. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 13, 2015) Continue reading
