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… Read More

Our associates at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment sent over information and a press release for three new fun packs featuring Slimer, DC Comics Bane, and Lloyd from Ninjago.

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. Do you even 'bust, bro? Check out these new figs coming from Jada (HT: @prometheanworks for the images). pic.twitter.com/fUAb3wGLFm — Ghostbusters HQ (@ghostbustershq) May 6, 2016 Each of the individual 4″ Ghostbusters… 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!

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… Read More

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… Read More

Lego Dimensions (US) Ghostbusters level pack is available now. If being a Ghostbusters Lego game of sorts isn’t enough reason to want to add this your LEGO Dimensions game, the great people behind the games were nice enough to send me an email.

Months ago I came across a couple of auctions on a popular auction site for  more current Japanese Ghostbusters merchandise. Since I don’t know when these were made and sold (perhaps they still are) and they’re newer then the Japanese Ghostbusters merchandise I’ve written about (GB Inc. Blog Post, January 15, 2015) and found them interesting I thought I’d share them.

Zoobe shared with ghostheads and anyone who’ll be in a festive mood over the next month that they’ve updated their Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ background. Apparently the guys, Janine, or the rookies found time to mop up ectoplasm and decorate the office for Christmas. You know most of those gifts are for Dr. Venkman. 😀 Check out this slimy Christmas message from Robin Shelby, the actress who played Slimer in the Ghostbusters 2… Read More

Zoobe who introduced many a ghostheads to their character based voice messaging app with Slimer (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, August 19, 2015) has added everyone’s really favorite Ghostbusters ghost (Sorry Robin. :p) to Zoobe today. The scene is practically straight out of Ghostbusters when Mr. Stay-Puft strolls down the avenue. Except he’s almost immediately hit with multiple confinement streams. Somehow he still makes time to provide a message of your choosing! 😀 Zoobe is available… Read More

Diamond Select Toys who have been showing their Ghostbusters Select figures this year (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 11, 2015) were at New York Toy Fair to once again display their Ghostbusters Selects. Which also gave ghostheads a look at the company’s progress. This was the first time (that I’m aware of) we’ve seen a DST Ghostbusters Select Egon. We also get to see a more detailed exhausted Ghostbusters Select Ray Stantz. Which should be… Read More
