Ghostbusters: The Video Game was officially remastered (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, September 6, 2019) on Friday, October 4. I know some ghostheads have already completed the Ghostbusters game which turns 10 this year! What if you’re stuck somewhere and need a helping hand, so to speak? Maybe need a gaming manual? Or also want to relive (maybe for the first time) the journey or reviews for Ghostbusters: The Video Game? Ecto-Containment has ghostheads covered.

Diamond Select Toys has revealed their New York Comic Con “Scared” Mr. Stay-Puft exclusive. Ghostheads would immediately recognize that while this figure is being marketed under The Real Ghostbusters brand, the only time Mr. Stay-Puft was scared is right before the Ghostbusters ruin Gozer’s night. Opinion: I don’t own the “regular” non exclusive version. I really like the idea behind this affordable toy and collectible. I’m not sure why (other then deceiving a fanbase) Diamond… Read More

Near Labor Day in the states Sony Pictures announced that GHOSTBUSTERS™ is returning to “select” movie theaters on October 6 and October 10. What makes these screenings different then just showing the movie is the added “unearthed and rarely seen alternate takes.” If you own the 35th Anniversary 4K/Blu-Ray, I presume the same content is featured on the discs. Press release after the break.

This wasn’t entirely unexpected news. As stated in the press release Hasbro and Sony are partners with the recent (not talked about by me yet) Ghostbusters Transformers Ecto-1 Ectrotron. Which is also part of the current Ghostbusters/Transformers comic book series from IDW Publishing. The fun part for ghostheads is Hasbro ties (sorta) to the original The Real Ghostbusters. Kenner was the “master toy company” for real Ghostbusters toys during 1980 something. Sometime after the series… Read More

Their was a time since 2009 and more recently in the last five years when I’d write or share Ghostbusters: The Video Game news/content. Ghostheads probably never thought their would be an update and a new official release of “Ghostbusters 3” again. Epic Games, Saber Interactive, video game publisher Mad Dog LLC, and of course Sony Pictures is happily proving us wrong. Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is coming to your computer or next generation… Read More

In 1980 something if you wanted to have a Ghostbusters (birthday) party, these themed items (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, January 8, 2015) were about the best your parental units were going to do. Fast forward 31 years, (my, how Ghostbusters times have changed) Spirit Halloween has officially licensed Ghostbusters items for your upcoming Ghostbusters party or event. Looking for Ghostbusters decor to throw a great party? Who you gonna call? This officially licensed Ghostbusters… Read More

Yesterday I had some opinions about Spirit Halloween new Ghostbusters costumes. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, August 19, 2019) The post was long and I didn’t have the time before work to talk about Spirit Halloween other Ghostbusters merchandise. This is that post. Full disclosure I don’t own any of Spirit Halloween’s Ghostbusters items. I use to own Matty Collector Prop Toys and still own a 19 year old Proton Pack replica. Should the time… Read More

  Last year Spirit Halloween took their Ghostbusters license to the next level with new Ghostbusters costumes, prop replicas, and more. (GBI Blog Post, August 30, 2018) Those items far as I know are still available to buy along with a storage facility full of new items. 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

During The Real Ghostbusters first full year in 1987 McDonald’s and Columbia Pictures came together with a theme, to sell your parents a cheeseburger (or McNugget) happy meal, and naturally include a The Real Ghostbusters toy. The theme for the multiple Happy Meal boxes had to do with going back to school. Each meal box had fun and educational, (my 9 year old self wouldn’t have quite thought of them in that way) activities… Read More
