Ecto-Containment

At last month’s Toy Fair New York aka NYTF, one of the collectible items Cryptozoic Entertainment had on display (GBI Blog Post, February 14, 2016) is the upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS Fan Club Collector Kit.

As I was too young for the official fan club (GBI Blog Post, June 8, 2014) and somehow missed out on Ghostbusters cereal’s “Be a Ghostbuster” cereal premium (GBI Blog Post, October 20, 2014) thirty two years later finally, I get to officially be part of a Ghostbusters fan club! 😀

Even though I wanted to with GBI, I never quite had the financial means to keep mass quantities of fan club materials to give to “franchises.”

Or so they claim. News off the Japanese servers reports Sony developed “the worlds first Proton Pack.”

That’s a bold claim considering my employers Drs. Stantz, Spengler, and I guess to some extent Venkman invented the world’s first Proton Pack (along with other ghost technology) more then 30 years ago.

Also how did a fictional scientist work with a real one to create a 2016 Proton Pack? 😉 Continue reading “Sony Invents Ghost Catching Technology”

NECA Ghostbusters 1:1 Scale Slimer

If you were around Slimer as much as quite a few of us are every single day, you’d understand why we would question why anyone would want a life size Class V, free roaming vapor. However, with that said we can see the appeal of a Slimer replica that won’t smell, leave ectoplasmic residue behind, and won’t increase your grocery budget.

At last month’s Toy Fair New York,  (or NYTF) N.E.C.A publicly returned to the Ghostbusters license by showing off 1:1 (or life size, best as realism allows) Slimer and Stay-Puft foam replicas. (GBI Blog Post, February 14, 2016)
