Blog Post, January 26, 2015) During the first week of February we updated that blog post with news that Joe’s Tobin’s Spirit Guide could be translated into English. (more…)

Tobin’s Spirit Guide (Abridged) To Be Published From Insight Editions

Originally posted on Ecto-Containment:


West End Games, Inc. published Tobin’s Spirit Guide (for use with Ghostbusters™ A Frightfully Cheerful Roleplaying Game) during Ghostbusters’ infancy.

During the internet age ghostheads have been making fan made versions which can encompass more then the films and the original RPG books. What can be included is unnaturally personal preference. Like this one (GB Inc. Blog Post, January 26, 2015) from Italian ghosthead Joe Nonostante. His version of Tobin’s clocks in at 496 pages!

With the release of Ghostbusters: The Video Game during Ghostbusters 25th anniversary Prima Games published a thorough game book which contains a Tobin’s Spirit Guide section.

While people with notable connections have tried to get a license to create such an official labor of love, it wasn’t in Spate’s Catalog. Or so it seemed.

Diamond Select Toys who will be releasing its first series of Ghostbusters Selects (GB Inc Blog Post) later this year is at San Diego Con. On display naturally are the Winston and Ray Ghostbusters Selects. Along with Louis as Keymaster ‘Ghostbuster’ Select.

Originally the third figure was up in the air as figures releases can depend on licensee approval. DST’s own Zach Oats thought the third figure could be Dana as Gatekeeper.

New Ghostbusters Selects for series 2 (and beyond) have been produced and are also being shown to SDCC attendees. Thanks to Toy News International for taking and sharing pictures. Let’s check them out!

My employers are pretty use to having their likeness and personalities on just about any piece of collectible merchandise you can think of. At times having another toy figure of themselves is just another day. That’s a reason they have employees like me and the Rookies. I certainly don’t have a my own Ghostbusters “action” figure. Although I could, sorta. (GB Inc)

Diamond Select Toys, a long time business associate having a 7″ Ghostbusters figure line is a big and exciting deal. We’ve written multiple blog posts (GB Inc) about the upcoming figure line. Since New York Toy Fair, Zach Oats, who works for DST has been providing more details on Ghostbusters Selects.

New York Toy Fair: Ghostbusters Marshmallow Fun Booth


We had shared via our social media Marshmallow Fun‘s New York Toy Fair booth set up. As most, if not all of their Ghostbusters Marshmallow Shooter products are currently available to buy, we weren’t going to write more about it.

Then we saw this closer pic of the ‘shooting gallery’ taken by NYC Ghostbusters and changed our minds. We know that 100ft target isn’t available for sale, and yeah most fans don’t have the room for one of that size. Its still pretty cool. Stay-Puft, Slimer, shadowy Ghostbusters busting, and melting marshmallow images!

After the break, Marshmallow Fun’s Ghostbusters/Marshmallows product line up. (more…)
