Product Description

This dynamic in-universe book takes fans inside the world of Ghostbusters like never before. In the first Ghostbusters movie, Tobin’s Spirit Guide is a comprehensive supernatural encyclopedia used by our heroes to research ghouls and ghosts. For the first time, this fully illustrated tome will allow fans to pore through the pages of this legendary guide to learn all about the things that go bump in the night—from Class 5 Free-Roaming Vapors to giant Sloars! This newly revised and updated version, written by veteran Ghostbusters Ray Stantz and Egon Spengler, brings the original text up to date with entries on the ghosts and ghouls they’ve tackled, including Slimer, Mr. Stay Puft, and Vigo the Carpathian.

Along with covering the original movies, Ghostbusters: Tobin’s Spirit Guide (Revised and Updated Edition) will also explore the expanded Ghostbusters universe, delving into supernatural phenomena from the comics, animated shows, video games, and other aspects of the franchise. Filled with never-before-seen original illustrations, the book will have a unique in-world aesthetic that makes it feel like a real object from the world of Ghostbusters.

Absorbing, immersive, and an essential purchase for fans, Ghostbusters: Tobin’s Spirit Guide is the ultimate guide to the franchise’s rogues’ gallery of spirits, specters, demons, and ghouls.

Spoilers ahead.

Tested In-Depth Ghost Trap

Sean Charlesworth and Norman Chan from Tested posted a video talking about a new 3D printed Ghost Trap. (GBI Blog Post, March 10, 2016) While that could have been it, the guys who could have a new career at Ghostbusters International made a 30 minute video going to the in-depths (my humor isn’t what got me this job) of their 3D printed Ghost Trap.

We’ve shown you Sean’s Ghost Trap replica prop, but there’s a lot more to talk about in terms of the 3D-printed model’s individual components, parts design, and electronics that brings it alive. It’s a kit designed for 3D printing and assembly, after all. Sean and Jeremy explain how they collaborated on the lights and sounds on the trap, which are appropriately activated by the 3d-printed pedal!


If you have access to a capable 3D printer Tested has provided the files for creating your own working, (remember, it doesn’t really catch ghosts because of our IP and the training it takes) 3D Ghost Trap.
