Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II items to be auctioned at Profiles in History


The catelogue for Profiles In History's Hollywood Auction 96 has gone online, and amongst the collection of movie memorabelia, two items from Ghostbusters II, and one item with ties to Ghostbusters are set to go under the hammer:

1659. Ghostbusters “Stay Puft Marshmallow Man” large display figure with some production made costume components. (Columbia, 1984)
Vintage original monumental display figure constructed of resin coated foam torso, arms, and legs, with creature suit head and integral hat, hands, and feet of cast skinned polyfoam. Hands and feet appear to be production made. Expertly studio painted with blue and white sailor flap, hatband with button crown, and red neckerchief and hat streamer. Measuring a large 82 x 60 x 31 in. In the original Ghostbusters film, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is created during the climax of the movie when evil god-like “Gozer” the “Destructor”, deigning to use the Ghostbusters first thought to manifest and destroy the world, catches “Ray's” (Dan Aykroyd) glancing thought. This seemingly benign creature is the result. But this affable figure turns malevolent, unleashing King Kong-sized wrath on New York City until our heroes cross their Proton Pack energy streams to turn him into a river of melted fluff. Exhibiting age, production wear, cracking to resin coating on the main body, some paint scuffing and soiling. Mounted standing on a 45.5 x 48 x 4 in. wooden base. In vintage good to very good condition. $6,000 – $8,000

1660. Ghostbusters II Van Horne model miniature subway sign. (Columbia, 1989)
Vintage original model miniature subway platform sign constructed of rigid polyfoam and resin, expertly studio painted and distressed to resemble the tiled elegance of closed off sections of New York’s underground rail system. Measures 21.25 x 6 x 1.5 in. Highly visible in the scenes featuring the underground river of pink slime. Exhibiting minor production wear, right corner has been chipped, left side exhibits repairs, back side has remnants of glue from production display. In production used vintage very good to fine condition. $600 - $800

1661. Ghostbusters 2 utility belt. (Columbia, 1989)
Vintage original prop utility belt constructed of black and silver nylon webbing, metal grommets, rings, hooks and clasps, black plastic buckle. Accessorized with a yellow plastic “LifeGard II”device, a black leather holster for the “Belt Gizmo”, and a steel plate with v-hook for securing a “ghost trap”. Multiple belts like this and others are worn by all the principle Ghostbusters throughout the classic film. Measuring 41.5 x 3 in. Highly visible in the movie. Exhibiting studio distressing and production wear and handling. In production used vintage very good to fine condition. $2,000 - $3,000

Plans unveiled for refurbishment of Firestation 23

It's been just over eight years since a troupe of Ghostheads got the chance to tour Firestation 23, and the subsequent years from the station's centenary haven't been as kind to the Los Angeles Firehouse as they have to its New York cousin.

However, it appears old L.A. #23 is set to have it's time in the sun. Curbed reports that the long-delayed plan to convert the station into an arts centre may finally be gaining traction, with work anticipated to begin in February 2019.

Architecture firm Brooks+Scarpa is helming the redevelopment project, and has already released some visualisations of what the ground floor engine bay will look like following the restoration (view the topic to check these out).

We here at GBFans are excited at the prospect of a part of our culture receiving a much-needed rehabilitation. We hope to bring you more information as the project progresses.

Photo credit:

In an update on our previous story, toy manufacturer Playmobil has been showcasing it's new Ecto-1A set and 6-inch upscaled Ghostbusters figures at New York Comic Con.

Those already familiar with the Playmobil Ghostbusters series are unlikely to be disappointed, as the reproduction of the car appears to be to the same high standard as its predecessor.

Playmobil to release Ecto-1A and 6inch figures


It's been just shy of a year since Playmobil announced the first expansion to it's Ghostbusters product line, and fans will once again be treated to more sets based on the boys in grey in the near future.

A scan from a German copy of the Playmobil catelogue has revealed that the toy company will be producing a replica of the Ecto-1A, a box set containing all four Ghostbusters, and a set of individually-packaged 6inch tall (twice the normal size) versions of the four Ghostbusters - similar to Funko Playmobil figures released a few years ago. The figures and car are expected to be released in May 2019.

Details are limited at this time, we will update this story when more becomes available.
