Today, Robert Maxwell Barbieri (Instagram) shared a new set of photos from the Official International Ghostbusters Club. (Ghostbusters International Page) He messaged us via Facebook the photos to share here at Ghostbusters International.

About this Ghostbusters Fan Club Kit

Found another rare Ghostbusters fan club kit. I snagged this one because it’s an earlier set with the badges and a different introductory letter. I have 2 later kits with one explaining they ran out of iron on patches and included 2 big glossy stickers instead. Just another chapter in the fan club history.

Official International Ghostbusters Club Photos Updated

On August 6, 2019 Ghostbusters International was able to recreate (GBI Blog Post) part of the original Official International Ghostbusters Club, thanks to Robert Maxwell Barbieri. (Facebook)

We 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 about the club, written by Rick Lyman, Inquirer Movie Critic and a letter (more like a note) from the Ghostbusters Fan Club so Mark Lister and Jim Garvey could send “qualifying applicants” club items once they or their parents paid $8.95 USD.

We’ve added these 2 new photos to the Official International Ghostbusters Club page.

Official International Ghostbusters Club Photos

Remember that time we wrote about the official Ghostbusters Fan Club? Five years later we’re writing 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 came from the original Ghostbusters fan club.

As I have in at least the last 5 years I asked about “club stuff.” That’s also when I heard from Robert Maxwell Barbieri. (Facebook) If you didn’t know, Robert restored the original The Real Ghostbusters pilot. Which Sony Pictures put on ghostbusters.com before also physically adding the restored pilot to the Ghostbusters 35th anniversary 4K/Blu-Ray!

As a ghosthead collector, Robert has items from the original Ghostbusters fan club. I asked for pictures or scans. Could they be shared for ghostheads? Robert agreed and I wasn’t disappointed by what he sent over. Including some extras from his archives.

If you have one or more of the quarterly newsletter “No-Ghosts” or something else from the original fan club, please contact us at: ghostbusterscities @ gmail . com.

It took around a week once we had the photos. We’re happy to recreate some semblance from the official international Ghostbusters club.

Ghostbusters: ATC Concept Art

Senior Illustrator Shae Shatz worked on Ghostbusters: Answer The Call concept art. Recently Shae Shatz shared twenty Ghostbusters: ATC illustrations at the Ghostbusters section of her site.

From Shae Shatz:

GHOSTBUSTERS WAS AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH A GREAT GROUP OF TALENT. UPON WORKING WITH PRODUCTION DESIGNER JEFFERSON SAGE, WE QUICKLY FOCUSED ON DEVELOPING A VISUAL LANGUAGE FOR THE GHOSTBUSTERS EQUIPMENT. STARTING WITH THE RAT TRAP, WE WERE SEARCHING FOR SOLUTIONS THAT WOULD SUPPORT GHOSTBUSTERS MODEST ROOTS THROUGH OBJECTS THAT WERE BUILT OUT OF REPURPOSED AND OFTEN HEAVY-DUTY ELECTRONICS. WITH THESE PILLARS IN MIND FELLOW ILLUSTRATOR ANNIS NAEEM AND I WERE COLLABORATING CLOSELY TO CREATE CONSISTENCY BETWEEN THE OBJECTS HE WAS DESIGNING AND THE ONES I WAS MAKING.

With respect to Shae Shatz we won’t share any additional concept images at our site. We highly encourage ghostheads to spend some time at Shae Shatz Creative.

Heide Park Resort Ghostbusters Content

Pascal Hendriks, an honorary Ghostbusters: Dutch Division (Facebook) member visited Heide Park Ghostbusters 5D (German Language) ride. Pascal filmed and shared the Ghostbusters area from Heide Park (German Language).

This is just the exterior Ghostbusters part and not the actual 5D ride. Which wouldn’t be in 5D if we could just watch a video, spoiling a ride experience for ghostheads.
