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.

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.

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

Ghostbusters Firehouse Gets Social

When we relaunched Ghostbusters NYC aka Ghostbusters Firehouse last month we didn’t feel their was a need to have one more social media account to oversee. As we began to share more updates through Ghostbusters Incorporated’s social media accounts, the timing felt right to create a Ghostbusters/Firehouse social media presence.

You can Follow us on Twitter @GhostbustersHL8. We were surprised that handle wasn’t taken. It wasn’t initially our first choice, we really like it. For now when we update Ghostbusters Firehouse, tweets will be automatic. Their can be more of a personal touch with updates and Ghostbusters talk.

What about other social media?

Ghostbusters Firehouse doesn’t currently have a Facebook, Google +, or any other social media accounts. One or more may come to pass. They’re currently not really needed.

With the new Twitta machine, we’ve updated the side menu to support @GhostbustersHL8 instead of the much more corporate GB Inc.
