Ghostbusters Cereal: At A Premium

GHOSTBUSTERS™ cereal was already pretty awesome. You already loved Ghostbusters, you loved cereal, how could the experience be any better? Two words that went hand in hand with children’s breakfast cereals, Free Stuff. More known by its less fun name, premium. When it comes to cereal and getting stuff their were different ways kids went about it.

  • Its free (once parental unit bought your cereal) when cereal companies put the premium inside the box. If it was a bigger item, it may have been plastic wrapped to the box. As long as a “bad kid” didn’t steal it at a grocery store.
  • Sometimes what the cereal company gave you is part of the cardboard box and you may need adult supervision to cut it/them out. Which was more then fine because we couldn’t imagine Ghostbusters cereal would ever be discontinued. We didn’t even know that word until the future.
  • Sending your lunch money, multiple PoP, (proof of purchase) and maybe mailing supplies.
  • A premium could have been the “get all your hopes up” and “make your dreams come true” by entering the Official Sweepstakes. (more…)

Asda Selling Ghostbusters T-Shirts

asdaukgbtees

Asda, a grocery store chain in the United Kingdom is selling 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters t-shirts. The above t-shirts were seen and shared by ghosthead Ian Dawes. The “no ghost” logo t-shirt appears to be the same design (minus the white ‘GHOST BUSTERS’ text) that was used on the gray t-shirts Australian retailer Primark had (could still be) been selling. Naturally the Slimer design comes from how Slimer looked in Ghostbusters.™ Which seems to work better for this overall design. A similar design from Ghostbusters II™ probably could have worked just as well.

After this picture was shared ghostheads Martin Dootson and Gemma Billingham commented that Asda is selling additional Ghostbusters t-shirts. Interestedly enough one shirt uses the deleted Fort Detmerring photo ghostheads are familiar with. Another features a more retro The Real Ghostbusters Slimer t-shirt. (more…)

Ghostbusters Technology Patents Surface

timandersonpke

Even we knew it was a matter of time before GHOSTBUSTERS™ original patents would find their way on-line due in part to United States law and our successes. Not just with the study and removal of paranormal phenomenon, with outside marketing ventures.

While Ghostbusters Incorporated has known these patents have been ‘public record’ for quite some time, we certainly weren’t going to bring it to the public’s attention. Without proper understanding and training of such equipment, their can be a danger to oneself and the public.

Why then did self proclaimed “best site in the world” post about it? Without asking we already know the answer.  (more…)

New Ghostbusters T-Shirts Available At JC Penney

1980small

I haven’t been to any malls, especially the closest one to my home since Summer. Coincidentally I was near my “childhood” mall the weekend Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary screenings were playing. Not that it probably would have mattered for this post, I wanted to go to that mall, their wasn’t enough time.

Like many ghostheads I’ve owned quite a few Ghostbusters t-shirts through the years. In the last decade (maybe a bit longer) as an adult I’ve had licensed t-shirts, home made ones (pre-new licensees) and then Ghostbusters International t-shirts. The Ghostbusters t-shirt I still wear is a heavier black t-shirt with the “no ghost” logo and Ghostbusters beneath it. I think I bought it in the later 2000s and it was made by a former Ghostbusters licensee. I still wear that shirt sometimes, I’ve been wanting a newer shirt during Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary.

I’ve known where to buy those kinds of t-shirts on-line since the summer. It was less of a priority to buy an official tee then say Ghostbusters Pop Movie! collectibles or the 30th Anniversary Blu-Rays. I was thinking of licensed Ghostbusters t-shirts and before getting to the mall near my home, seeing a little what could be available. (more…)

Select Action Figures

  • 7″ Select Ghostbusters (my employers) figures.

Electronic Vehicles

  • 1:15 Scale.
  • Most likely at least ECTO-1.

Minimates & Banks

  • More Ghostbusters Minimates.
  • Unless they’re considering expanding upon the Ghostbusters “universe,” we’re not sure yet what Ghostbusters Minimates Diamond Select Toys is considering.
  • With the banks, we could see additional character banks.

Other Categories In Development

  • Its above my pay grade to know what that means at the early stage. Maybe some kind of ‘prop toys?’

Thanks to ‘JoeGhostbuster’ for asking DST for a little more information.
