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.

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.

As we’re (obviously) not in the United Kingdom and I only wanted to share the Ghostbusters articles anyway I didn’t want to, (with currency rates) buy a digital version of Empire from June 2016. I did the next best thing for ghostheads, scan my copy.
I wasn’t planning on doing that today, I guess I’ve been wanting to. I made high-res scans of the covers, editor’s letter, features, Ghostbusters: Answer The Call article, and Ghostbusters article with Dan Ackroyd. I saved the articles as two PDF files.
Why two? I know not every ghosthead is a fan of Ghostbusters: Answer The Call. If one really only wants to read the “classic” article with Dan Aykroyd, I thought of “you.”
Both the complete Empire magazine and just the Ghostbusters article, titled The Ghost Writer have been added to the 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 Weekly, Cracked, 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.
Near of the end of January MAD released a collector’s edition with reprints of 21 movie spoofs. Two of the spoofs are based off Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. Whether its because Ghostbusters turned 30 last year or it’s dear to MAD (imagine that) Ghostbusters owns the cover art.
Looks like the artists at MAD came up with all new Ghostbusters art featuring Alfred E. Neuman as a Ghostbusters haphazardly trying to bust their interpretation of Slimer.
While I was working on this site and dealing with winter weather I hadn’t had a chance to pick up a copy. I was finally able to on February 3, 2015. Read the rest of this entry
