Ghostbusters Teaser TV Spot

gbteasertvspotmat84

In May 1984 the cooler TV networks and their affiliates ran a Ghostbusters teaser spot. You couldn’t have really known what was going on or what to expect the following month. The “ominous” music made Ghostbusters seem scary with no comedy. Soon enough audiences would be part of something bigger then a microchip. (more…)

Ghostbusters Snack Pack

Hard to believe 30 years later, when GHOSTBUSTERS™ was being made, then in and out of theaters the film property didn’t seem be that marketable. Prior to The Real Ghostbusters, ‘movie merchandise’ was limited with books, soundtracks, a lunch box, model kits, and paper goods.

Paper goods? (more…)

Ecto-Containment Matty Collector Ghost Trap Review

mcghostrapdoorsopen

Written By: Richard Roy

In early 2012 I bought a Matty Collector Ghost Trap from a seller within my state. I took un-boxing photos almost immediately, didn’t do much with them. The intent was to upload them to Ecto-Containment and around that time write a review. Whatever the reason prior to “Superstorm” (right) Sandy I sat on them.

The first week of November two years later I finally decided to work with those original pictures and add them to Ecto-Containment. The review still needed to be written. With my sense of humor I made it seem like we’d see that in 2016. Before the review I realized I needed more detailed pictures. I took a new series of photos, uploaded on November 9 and on November 10 wrote a review of my Matty Collector Ghost Trap, which has been published to Ecto-Containment.

The only prop toy I haven’t reviewed is their P.K.E Meter. I could see covering it by the end of 2014, I’ll see how that goes.
