As its been a number of years since GBI as a company and club has had a domain name, the time is right for GBI to not just have a dot wordpress dot com url.
It’s 2020, twenty twenty. Let that sink in. The GHOSTBUSTERS™ franchise celebrates it’s 36th anniversary by welcoming a continuation and a sequel of the original films with Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Obligatory plug: Coming to theaters on July 10, 2020. Directed by Jason Reitman. And all a new Ghostbusters film will bring to ghostheads.

Idle Hands (Flickr) have taken a whole digital roll (remember those?) of detailed Ghostbusters Select photos from New York Toy Fair. Instead of uploading the remaining 13 photos, we wanted to at least “mention” it and thank Paul Nicholasi for not only taking these detailed photos, other NYTF Ghostbusters merchandise.

The Fwoosh took pictures of the new Diamond Select Toys Ghostbusters figures on display at New York Toy Fair. Either by personal choice or maybe what was ready to display the two figures on display are Winston and Ray. With the photos The Fwoosh took we’re already seeing nice details with the body language, uniforms, and equipment.
