Dr. Ray Stantz was at our original and number one Firehouse HQ transforming the real Ghostbusters central for Christmas. Once decorating was complete, one of the rookies was getting ready to take a picture when a certain green ghost had to make an appearance. Which at least startled this rookie. The experience gave Dr. Stantz a good laugh.
Pictures after the jump. Continue reading “Ghostbusters Firehouse Gets Festive”
On September 15, 2014 we posted about a new GHOSTBUSTERS phone number Sony and Ghostbusters Incorporated set up at our original headquarters. Most clients and ghostheads have already heard Janine’s prerecorded message. Hearing a message is so 30 years ago.
As we knew the recording is important and we like to do this kind of thing, we paid someone at least 5 bucks to hold a camera and press record.

For Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary and the new Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II Blu-rays, Sony and Ghostbusters Incorporated have set up a new number, right out of Ghostbusters HQ! When you call 212-897-1964 you’ll hear a pre-recorded message from Janine Melnitz! The Ghostbusters first employee, then receptionist, and today the senior administrator at Ghostbusters Incorporated!
If you’re calling from outside the area code, say like Vancouver long distance charges will most likely apply.

Vanity Fair spoke with Annie Potts who portrayed then receptionist Janine Melnitz in Ghostbusters™ and Ghostbusters II™. Annie Potts was asked where she saw the future of the character.
Interesting since Janine Melnitz is one of the most important people in Ghostbusters Incorporated history. I totally get that Annie Potts wouldn’t publicly give out details about Janine Melnitz’s life.

When Sergio Herencias created a custom Ghostbusters Firehouse, ghostheads didn’t entirely know he would submit it to Lego Cuusoo for support to eventually be seen and evaluated by Lego themselves. In a pretty similar fashion, its how the 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters Lego ECTO-1 set was approved and to be produced this year.
I present you, my Lego Ghostbusters HQ Custom MOC built.
Thanks to Brent, Lego brings the GB Ecto-1 Set. I thought to myself- why not built the appropriate HQ.
I decided to built a hybrid between GB1 & GB2 and add more extras and details, lights, sound and other stuff.
The Floors(levels) are removable. Therefore, you had many freedoms for the interior and everything is easily accessible. I have already started the design concepts of various accessories and furniture.
Lego Parts approx. 3000
Total production time: approx. 20H
height: 38cm – length: 33,6cm – width: 17,5cm
If you’d like to support Sergio’s project, vote. Once it receives 10,000 votes, Lego will seriously consider the project. Realistically that may depend on how their ECTO-1 set, complete with Ghostbusters mini figures and proton packs sell.
