On August 6, 2019, posted at Ecto-Containment on August 7, Ghostbusters International was able to recreate (Ecto-Containment Blog Post) part of the original Official International Ghostbusters Club, thanks to Robert Maxwell Barbieri. (Facebook) I figured that would be it unless TECHPAC or “No Ghosts,“ the quarterly newsletter surfaced. On Halloween and into early November (“that’s my fault”) Robert reached out with a couple of new pieces around the Official Ghostbusters Fan Club. An article… Read More
No cover art available at this time. Not to be outdone by Ghostbusters Legacy, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 11, 2019) another book publisher, Titan Books will be publishing an omnibus Ghostbusters novel. Before the internet was a kid, movies like Ghostbusters would have a novel attached to it. In the United States, the novelization of Ghostbusters was written by Richard Mueller. Mr. Mueller would also write 23 episodes of The Real Ghostbusters over the… Read More
This news isn’t completely out of left field. It makes sense with Ghostbusters 2020 aka code name Rust City on the spectral horizon that Sony and a publisher would put together a new making of Ghostbusters book. Nothing can replace Making Ghostbusters by Don Shay. It’s decades out of print, a physical copy can be pricey, and fortunately for ghostheads is available digitally…for free. (Spook Central PDF file) Their isn’t a making of… Read More
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.
Remember that time over at GBI when they wrote about the official Ghostbusters Fan Club? (GBI Blog Post, June 8, 2014) Five years later they, (well I did) wrote about the official international Ghostbusters fan club again. For a very good reason. It started this summer when the king of the ghostheads, Peter Mosen. (Facebook) had been taking and sharing photos from his career and collecting. One or more of the shared photos… Read More
When Ghostbusters was celebrating its 24th anniversary I began to preserve out of print Ghostbusters content, adding it to then Ectocontainment. Trivia: I’m pretty sure it was The Real Ghostbusters Jumbo Coloring Book. (PDF file) I didn’t even have a physical copy of it! In 2011 I did have plenty of physical Real/Ghostbusters out of print materials to preserve. Mainly my legacy with The Real Ghostbusters Magazine(s) and NOW The Real Ghostbusters comics. They… Read More
On July 3, 1984 as The United States was celebrating independence, Mark Lister and Jim Garvey founded the official Ghostbusters Fan Club. (GBI Blog Post, June 8, 2014) Related: Ghostbusters Official Fan Club. (Spook Central) For about the price of a streaming subscription today, ($8.95 USD in 1984) ghostheads received a number of items, including a membership card. A high res version surfaced on February 2, 2018 thanks to Lance Dobersek. I wrote more about… Read More
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.
At the very end of January, Paul R. from Spook Central shared a Ghostbusters video in part as ghosthead Lanny White had asked him for it. Prior, I had a lesser quality copy which I had kinda forgotten about. SFX Museum Vol. 1 is part of a feature that’s on the Japanese Laserdisc version of Ghostbusters. I don’t personally know if was featured on any North American Ghostbusters Laserdiscs. The SFX feature… Read More
So 5 days ago I scanned my physical copy of Empire UK from June 2016. As in my search beforehand I didn’t come across a free digital version. My scans were the covers, inside content, and thankfully just the Ghostbusters articles. After converting the files into pretty high-res and very large PDFs they were added (Ghostbusters Firehouse Blog Post, April 15, 2017) to Ghostbusters Firehouse. Unbeknownst to me and I’m guessing most ghostheads the real,… Read More
I had never heard of Dino Dan: Trek’s Adventures until the last week of December 2016. That would make sense as it’s a children’s show. I was at a Wal*Mart out of state when I saw the title, Dino Dan: Trek’s Adventures – Dino Busters. (Amazon US) I would also see it after being back in Jersey in January 2017. By then ghostheads were sharing it on social media. As their wasn’t… Read More
