Who knew that in 2019 ghostheads would need knitted Ghostbusters vinyl figures. If a robot makes them by hand, pretty much everybody! At last weeks San Diego Comic Con, Handmade By Robots revealed two upcoming Ghostbusters figures. While they aren’t the Ghostbusters, (I’m trying to picture them) ghostheads can buy a plastic knit like Slimer or Stay-Puft. Descriptions and additional photos after the break.

After eating and writing about new Ghostbusters breakfast cereals, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 16, 2019) yesterday it’s time to write and eat about new Ghostbusters candy. In the past a company or two (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 13, 2015) made Ghostbusters candy, if you lived in the United Kingdom. What about the 327.2 million (as of 2018) US residents? Everyone loves Ghostbusters and candy. I patiently waited (sure) and during Ghostbusters 35th anniversary… Read More

In 2019 for Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary Funko made not 1, but 2 Ghostbusters branded cereals. The first, Ghostbusters Slimer Funko’s. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 16, 2019) The second and probably final Funko’s Ghostbusters cereal was in association with The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Corporation. Well, if it really existed.

Iconic angry face version of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man! Press the plushy (not made of actual marshmallows) tummy to hear Ray Parker Jr.’s Ghostbusters! Each plush measures approximately 9-inches tall. “When there’s something strange, in the neighborhood. Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!” Plush comes from a smoke free and pet free residence.

You’re probably aware I have had a Matty Collector Ghostbusters collection (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, January 9, 2018) for a number of years now. The one Matty Collectible I hadn’t posted about exclusively or wrote about previously is their version of the traveler. That all changed today when I took photos, created a new page under Matty Collector, and wrote about the only 20 inch Stay-Puft! Photo Source: Ecto-Containment

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

Funko recently announced wave 2 of their Pop! Tees. Among the likes of some jokerish space civil war t-shirts is the above Ghostbusters Pop! t-shirt. We know Pop! Movies Winston Zeddemore (iRich Blog Post, December 28, 2014) is smaller in scale, that isn’t a reason to exclude him. You may remember Funko originally released (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 11, 2015) a Ghostbusters Pop! Tee as a SDCC 2015 exclusive. Which was later sold at retailers and on-line…. Read More

When there’s something immediately happening in Japan with Ghostbusters, all I need to do is see a tweet/or re-tweet from Ghostbusters Japan. (Twitter) This is where I recently learned a new Ghostbusters collectible is coming out and it seems so Japanese. I say that with the highest of compliments. As on-line software translation isn’t perfect I didn’t quite get the idea of these Daruma toys. I chalked it up as another type of… Read More

Back at February’s New York Toy Fair Ghostbusters licensee PPW Toys had their upcoming Ghostbusters Mr. Potato Heads and nesting dolls on display. (GBI Blog Post, February 14, 2016) Not that surprising I wasn’t familiar enough with PPW Toys. Checking out their site gave me a better idea of their partnerships and pricing. Today PPW Toys has given us a better look at their Ghostbusters products. Let’s take a closer look!

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
