Playmobil Ghostbusters TV Spots

Written By Richard Roy, Cord Cutter

I haven’t had satellite in more than a year. Even if I did I wouldn’t have been watching a network of cartoons. Paul R. from Spook Central (Facebook) was and saw a TV spot for Playmobil (US) Ghostbusters sets.

A bit odd, the US version isn’t on Playmobil (YouTube) channel. Although the UK version is. Paul found the US version at iSpot.

As I was preparing this blog post I also saw Playmobil has Ghostbusters videos for Sweden, Norway, Denmark, France, Netherlands, and I believe Spain.

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.

Mad Cracked People Added To Magazine Rack

Recently after writing about UK fast food franchise Wimpy and their Ghostbusters II kids meal commercial (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, March 31, 2017) I was wondering if ghost heads had a digital copy of UK magazine Empire from June 2016. That also had me thinking about MAD Movie Classics (Ghostbusters Firehouse Blog Post, February 7, 2015) special. I asked at Ecto-Containment’s Facebook page if someone had a digital copy of either publication. While their hasn’t been an exact match yet, ghosthead Alex Newborn shared scans from one of his Facebook albums.

Within the one album were scans of Ghostbusters articles from People WeeklyCracked, and MAD magazines. With Alex Newborn’s permission I’ve saved the files, cleaned them up some where necessary and made PDF files of just the Ghostbusters periodicals.

Six new magazines have been added to the Magazine Rack. Where I’ve organized magazines, comics, a coloring book, and more by month and year. Some exceptions apply with Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
