Our own web monkey Richard Roy aka Spengs received an email today from Erica, Senior Manger of Marketing for Think Geek. She has been inviting franchise groups/ghostheads to Think Geek locations this Sunday, June 2, 2019.
Why would she use her valuable time to do that? It’s the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters and they’re celebrating Ghostbusters within their retail locations!
Publicly not a lot has been shared about in how they’ll be celebrating Ghostbusters. We do know Think Geek will have an exclusive GHOSTBUSTERS™ Funko Pop. You’re a ghosthead and may already be in a group. You’ll probably have fun in air conditioning for free. Unless you buy stuff. And It’s GHOSTBUSTERS™. What other reason do you need to attend?
Think Geek’s individual locations Facebook pages have set up event information. If you’re in the US, “it won’t hurt you” to check if a Think Geek is having a Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary event.
After revealing packaging art (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 2, 2017) for their upcoming Ghostbusters play sets, Playmobil (US) shared photos of there booth from an international toy fair. Which we assume was London Toy Fair. As there isn’t an intern around, their isn’t really a reason to check.
After the break we’re sharing the Playmobil Ghostbusters photos they’ve shared with fans worldwide!
This weekend is Toy Fair New York. Or as most have called, including us New York Toy Fair. Quite of a few of our licensees are exhibiting our mutually beneficial wares. Our Ghostbusters franchise members have been in attendance to provide announcements and photos. Most have been taken by NYC Ghostbusters.

Previews World has shared a couple of pics on their Twitter account of Vinyl Sugar’s upcoming Ghostbusters Vinyl Idolz. Still no sign (or word about) of a Winston Vinyl Idolz. Should we find out the info, we’ll have an update.
Tomorrow is the annual New York Toy Fair. Where our business associates and other companies within the toy industry will be displaying their wares. Cryptozoic Entertainment made a real splash this week with their upcoming table games.
Sugar Vinyl (Twitter) teased three out hopefully four Ghostbusters that will be on display this weekend. We’ll be talking more about new Ghostbusters merchandise this weekend and next as our schedules allow.
Funko, a slightly smaller evil corporation and Vinyl Sugar, (Twitter) a large evil corporation got together to come up with Vinyl Idolz. What is a Vinyl Idolz? Are one of their employees from JerZey? 😀
From Vinyl Sugar
Vinyl Sugar is the illegitimate love child between Funko and some of the best free-wheeling designers from the back streets of London, the boutiques of Harajuku, and the galleries in NYC. Vinyl Sugar – because you crave it!
With the first teaser image Vinyl Sugar shows us a doc, a dude, and a buster. Specifically Dr. Venkman. All 3(D) figures appear to have a caricature type look. Which certainly works well for Dr. Venkman.
We don’t know when they’ll be available for retail. They should be on display at next month’s New York Toy Fair.
