The Real Ghostbusters Cartoon Turns 30 Today!

click the above title for the full story...

In this monumental day exactly 30 years ago, September 13, 1986, the first ever episode of The Real Ghostbusters aired on ABC. This show had a profound effect on my childhood..many of our childhoods and is what kept me interested in Ghostbusters throughout the late 1980s. Its the series that expanded on the film universe of the Ghostbusters, giving us so many memorable episodes that its hard to even choose a few to name....and of course the legendary Kenner toyline. What are your favorite Real Ghostbusters memories?

  • Ghostbusters Collectables, featuring a foreward by Dan Aykroyd        
  • This book details toys & collectables from the 1984 movie and Real Ghostbusters Kenner toyline all the way to the present day!        
The film Ghostbusters was released in June 1984 and became a cultural phenomenon and an instant classic, reaching no. twenty-eight in the American Film Institute's top 100 comedies of all time and voted funniest film of the past twenty-five years by Entertainment Weekly in 2008. The release of the film marked the beginning of a franchise that would include a sequel (with a third film due for release in July 2016), comics, television series and action figures. In this book, author and collector Matt MacNabb takes a look at the best of Ghostbusters collectables, including action figures of the four Ghostbusters themselves, some of the most famous ghosts from the films and models of ECTO-1. This book covers everything from the original feature film merchandise to the Real Ghostbusters Kenner toys, Extreme Ghostbusters and the modern collectables, like Lego.  The book also looks at some of the most unusual collectables as well as looking at what might be collectable in the future.

Collector Custom Vintage Ecto-Plazm Display Box!

click the above title for the full story...

Ghostbusters collector Aaron Mallia created this amazing tribute piece to the vintage  Kenner toyline.  Check out his explanation below:

"Personally made this using original pieces from the US version box. Had the images restored digitally and printed on photo paper. Custom ordered purple cardboard and used PVA glue to apply the copies. This is the first of 5 that I'm creating. I have to make a few adjustments to the dimensions as the original box can hold 24 cans while this one holds 18. Knowing how rare these are to find I decided to recreate some of these boxes myself. It's been time consuming and costly but I think it's worth it as a collector."
