I rather dig the variant of the poster featuring the New York skyline. While the final version has a air of simplicity to it, giving greater emphasis to the cast, the skyline in a way feels a nice visual element.

I couldn't agree more. I always thought it was cool. Is there a scan anywhere?

I just noticed that the original Slimer miniature sold for a FRACTION of what the GB2 art department binders sold for. That's just mind boggling.

fyi, the 'First Draft' moniker for that 8/5/83 script is misleading. There are at least 2 collaborative drafts before it. June and July 6, 1983. And Paul has a free digital version of the 8/5/83 on Spook Central.

Hope those addresses and phone numbers on the crew list aren't current. :sigh:

They belong in a museum!

But seriously, every time unique archival items like this are up for auction, I always wonder if a studios archives might be the better place for them (sorry collectors)?
As a collector that goes nuts over archival material, I can't argue on that one.

Yes it would be nice if some of the Follixin stuff is https://www.nacaanet.org/follixin-review-results maid available either on display or digitally instead of being locked away never to be seen again.
Awesome, those head sculptures are very cool. How does one find out about these auctions anyway?
