Playmobil Ghostbusters Comic


Written By: Richard Roy, celebrator of free comic book days.

Playmobil (US) latest way to promote their line of Ghostbusters play sets has arrived. Unless you were in the know, (I wasn’t) Playmobil created a brand new Ghostbusters comic book set in the Playmobil Ghostbusters “universe.” Even though it’s meant more for kids, it isn’t a couple of wavy lines. Playmobil art comes in at 14 colorful pages!

Besides having a new Ghostbusters comic, the best part its 100% free! You or the young ghostheads can download Playmobil’s Ghostbusters comic PDF here.

Alternatively as we thought ahead to a time when the comic might not be at there site, it’s also been uploaded to The Magazine Rack. Hope that’s cool plastic Playmobil lawyers.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game Publications


Yesterday (later in the day) we created a new page to add to The Magazine Rack. Why would we need to create a new page? The waiting area has a lot of newer reading material, all pertaining to Ghostbusters: The Video Game!

We uploaded and added 16 US and international publications before, during, and after the release of Ghostbusters: The Video Game for XBOX, PS3/PS2, PC, (mostly Windows) and Nintendo Entertainment Systems!

Today we uploaded and added 4 game guides (3 official from Prima and one from GameSpot) along with 6 game instruction manuals.

All files are in the PDF format. Download Adobe Acrobat Reader for your Windows or Mac computer.

Most material was provided for our sites by Paul Rudoff, webmaster of Spook Central. Multiple PDF files were put together by Richard Roy.

Still waiting? Grab some Ghostbusters: The Video Game magazines from The Magazine Rack.

Tomart’s Action Figure Digests Nos. 52 & 92


Tomart’s Action Figure Digest, a toy magazine that also included a price guide on toys of yesteryear wrote about Kenner’s The Real Ghostbusters (Ecto-Containment) toys at least twice.

Issue #52 (PDF) covered the “greatest figures never made.” When it came to The Real Ghostbusters this included Backpack Heroes, Glow Copter vehicle, Fire Fighter vehicle, and the most well known Egon’s Lab play set.

Issue #92 (PDF) included an article about all of Kenner’s The Real Ghostbusters toys with photos included. If you wanted to know at the time is any of this stuff worth any monetary value? Tomart’s had ghostheads covered with a price guide.

We had a page or two of No. 92 laying around HQ for years and eventually were going to add them to one of our sites. In a way it worked out better for everyone as Paul Rudoff, who runs Spook Central offered his PDF files for Ghostbusters Firehouse to share.

As an aside Paul has previously shared other Ghostbusters related magazines with the company. They’ll be added in a future update.

Both issues of Tomart’s Action Figure Digest have been added to The Magazine Rack.

The Magazine Rack


Nearly two months ago I was tasked with making Ghostbusters Firehouse more like its brick and mortar location when possible. I knew a pretty good place to start too, Ghostbusters reading material.

A new section was added to build from, based off Ghostbusters waiting room. In an era before mobile technological devices, one might read some kind of periodical or other printed material. True, you could watch TV. This is the Ghostbusters website, not the tall, glass skyscraper we know as Ghostbusters Inc. Read the rest of this entry
