Yesterday I had some opinions about Spirit Halloween new Ghostbusters costumes.

  Last year Spirit Halloween took their Ghostbusters license to the next level with new Ghostbusters costumes, prop replicas, and more.

Full disclosure I don’t own any of Spirit Halloween’s Ghostbusters items. As you may know I own a couple of Ghostbusters flight suits, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, March… Read More

  I have to be honest, the standard that has been around with Vinyl figures peaked for me sometime ago. To the point I had thought their was really only one way to make them. Then Vinyl Sugar, a Funko brand came along with Ghostbusters Vinyl Idolz (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 24, 2015) and I probably said something like this is different. I couldn’t have imagined in 4 years how much the vinyl figure landscape… Read More

On July 2, 2017 ghosthead, collector, and friend David Boozer who runs The Ghostbusters Vault left a comment about owning this very Wimpy meal box.

I haven’t had satellite in more than a year. Even if I did I wouldn’t have been watching a network of cartoons. Paul R. from Spook Central (Facebook) was and saw a TV spot for Playmobil (US) Ghostbusters sets. A bit odd, the US version isn’t on Playmobil (YouTube) channel. Although the UK version is. Paul found the US version at iSpot.

Playmobil (US) has shared a commercial for their Ghostbusters play sets. The commercial is a mix of German and a little English. Sources: Playmobil (US) Ghostbusters Playmobil (US) Playmobil (YouTube) Sony Pictures

This years Las Vegas Licensing Expo is the week of May 23-25. In preparation of movie studios such as Sony Pictures attending, an image surfaced featuring the above new Ghostbusters “no ghost” logo.
