Well, I've been in the community for almost 2 months now, but I've never taken the time to sit down and write my intro... Well, so here goes!

I've been a Ghostbusters fan for Lord knows how long... Here's some photos to show just how long ago... Special thanks to my mom for finding these, scanning them, and sending them to me today (she's currently residing in the Philippines)!

Unfortunately, as I progressed through High School, College, and then joining the US Navy, my fandom sat almost dormant... I'd still watch both movies countless times and was super ecstatic for the game when it came out, and was so happy that it was very well done and was faithful to the franchise, but that's as far as it would go... and then...

Come February 24, 2014... I come across the saddest of news, Harold Ramis has passed away... I was shattered... heartbroken... My favorite Ghostbuster, my childhood hero, and one of the biggest names in comedy has now passed away...

After mourning for a couple of days, I decided that it was about time I go back and live my childhood dream, at least for a moment, in his honor...

And here I am today, putting together my own flightsuit, along with the help of everybody in this community, and of course my beloved wife, who also joined me in my endeavor, and having a grand time doing it! Made numerous new friends, and learning new tricks and skills, and just having a blast... all in the name of one of the greatest men in Hollywood, who inspired me to become the man I am today...

Looking forward to building my own hero pack someday, that will be the icing on the cake!!! =D

Welcome aboard!

By a strange coincidence, I used to play with that same brand of toy that your childhood thrower is made out of.

If I remember well, it was quite popular during it's time... Can't remember what they were called...

Hi Phil
I spent 10 years out of 20 in the USAF stationed at Clark AB, my youngest daughter was born there and that's where my son Charles 1st got hooked on GI Joe, GB and Transformers when I brought him home toys from the many places in SE Asia I had the opportunity to visit. So nice to have another Pinoy family in GBFans. If we can help in any way let us know.

That's awesome, thanks for sharing! This community is so awesome, I wish I was a part of it long ago... The work you and your son did with the trap and pack recently is amazing, more power to you both!

Welcome to the party, albeit 6 months late, brother in arms!
