Nintendo Power May/June 1990

Written By: Richard Roy, Declassifying Nintendo Power Since Just Now

With Ghostbusters II 28th anniversary less than 5 days away I had what I thought would be a great idea. Share an out of print Nintendo Power that covered Ghostbusters II. Then came a problem with that idea in mind. I don’t own a physical copy of Issue/Volume 12 from May/June 1990. I reached out to ghostheads and received some help. Thanks to Ralph, Adam, Jon, and David.

I probably hadn’t looked at Nintendo Power since 2011. I also didn’t remember Nintendo didn’t really cover their version of Ghostbusters II. Part of a “Video Shorts”section, Nintendo Power devoted a whole 2, yes TWO paragraphs to the game. No wonder this volume hadn’t been preserved to Ghostbusters sites.

Toy Review Issue 184

Written By: Richard Roy, Magazine Collector

As part of Lee’s Toy Review Issue #184 from February 2008, Lee had a guide to collecting The Ghost Busters and Ghostbusters toys that included up to that time Ghostbusters 20th anniversary.

I may have a vague recollection of seeing this at Borders, as I wasn’t really collecting at the time and didn’t read Lee’s Toy Review, I didn’t buy a copy. Since then I had mostly forgotten about it.

Recently David Boozer, who runs The Ghostbusters Vault scanned his copy for ghostheads. I’ve lightly cleaned them and made a PDF copy. The just Ghostbusters content with covers is 11 pages and comes in at 152 MB.

Lee’s Toy Review (PDF) has been added to The Magazine Rack.
