Sometime this year an auction company had a screen used prop from GHOSTBUSTERS II™. It’s a really good one too. Tripod Ghost Traps were rarely seen in either the film or by most Ghostbusters International employees.
Thanks to ghosthead Adam aka SabaSka109 more ghostheads can see detailed photos of this fascinating piece of Ghostbusters history. Due to major safety concerns and regulations GBI could never share schematics with the public. Which is a reason you don’t find many photos of these Tripod Ghost Traps.
Adam shared 8 photos and a video of his screen used Tripod Ghost Traps in a Ghostbusters Fans message board thread.

Ghostheads probably never thought their would be new The Real Ghostbusters game pieces in the 21 Century. If you’re supporting Ghostbusters The Board Game II through Kickstarter it could become REAL
For some reason electronics and entertainment retailer Best Buy (US) really likes Steel Books. The steel bound “hard” covers cases that protect in recent years Blu-Rays. Almost always (at least in the US) a movie exclusive for Best Buy is a steelbook version.
It isn’t a surprise that Best Buy will have exclusive steel book versions for both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II when they’re reissued from Sony Pictures Entertainment. Kinda surprising, (as far as we know) these Ghostbusters/II steel books are exclusive to Canadian Best Buy locations.
As of this evening Best Buy’s site within the US doesn’t have photos for the new, upcoming releases. With artwork like above and below the read more, our neighbors to the north display the photos like fine art.
If your country (or region) will also have exclusive Ghostbusters steel books, please let us know in the comments.

Ghostbusters: The Board Game II builds off the successful original and introduces new miniatures, campaigns, powers, events, entities, gear… and GHOSTS. A standalone expansion, the game can be played on its own or mixed and matched with the original board game, which raised over $1.5M last year on Kickstarter. It includes 54 Miniatures including new Courtroom and Slime Blower Ghostbuster figures.
With authentic art from Ghostbusters comic book artist Dan Schoening and a script by Erik Burnham, the game is filled with references, in-jokes and Easter eggs that fans will love. Ghostbusters: The Board Game II is a flexible action-strategy game with unpredictable adversaries and a wide range of abilities, with 12 reversible tiles and campaigns that last from 20 minutes to multiple hours to let 1-4 players bust ghosts however they like.
Sean Charlesworth and Norman Chan from Tested posted a video back in March about a new 3D printed Ghost Trap. (GBI Blog Post, March 10, 2016) Then they went in-depth (GBI Blog Post, March 13, 2016) with a 30 minute video.
With the 3D files available to make one of your own 3D Ghost Traps, if you have the hardware and software, Sean and Norman have made a 50 minute assembly video. With our patents and IP fully protected by laws that HAD to be invented due note assembling a 3D Ghost Trap will not, we repeat WILL NOT function to catch any class of ghost.
Watch how the 3D-printed ghost trap project comes together in this step-by-step build tutorial! Sean puts together his ghost trap kit, explaining the design of each piece along the way. You can download the files for the print here, and buy hardware kits here. Thanks to Dremel for providing the 3D printer and tools for us to build this project!
