Ghoul tidings: A Ghostbusters Gift Guide

Last minute gift shopping can be tricky but, this Ghostbuster shopping guide should be able to help you out.

Here is a small of list of items out there that you may add to the holiday shopping (or Santa) list.

Amazon.com

The Real Ghostbusters animated series. One of the best animated series of the 1980s (if not all time) is now available and helps bring you back to your childhood. I guess it’s time to dust off those old Kenner toys.

Proton Pack, the backpack. Who knew a thrower could hold a cell phone and pens? This nifty item is $39.99 on Amazon and is hard to find in stores.

Slimer Sours. Why not add some retro looking candy to that stalking?

Ghostbusters Slime Pants: Open presents in style.

Spencers

No Ghost Pint Glass. Don’t you wish you could drink ecto-cooler in this?

Trap with logo skinny tie. Be dressy and nerdy at the same time.

Ghostbuster key caps (in-store only). Cover that Cadillac key!

“3D” Stay Puft belt buckle (in-store only).

Stay Puft pillow buddy (in-store only).


Thanks to Joseph Mays for the pics!

iTunes

Gift the movies for electronic download right on their iPad, iPhone or computer.

Diamond Select Toys & Collectibles

Stay Puft Bank. Pretty much the coolest bank I’ve ever seen.

Minimates. LEGO, watch your back.

Toys R Us

The Real Ghostbusters retro-action figures.

Posters.com

Movie poster. Add some slime to that empty wall. You can even have it shipped framed.

80stees.com

Baby blue logo shirt. Just like the one people wave at the end of the first film.

Inflatable Stay Puft lawn decoration. Because it’s just damn cool.

MattyCollector.com

You can’t go wrong with anything made by MattyCollector. From realistic action figures to movie replica PKE Meters and traps, Matty makes some really good stuff. Check out their store for many cool toys.

To be fair, there are a lot more items out there. These just happen to be some of my favorites. Feel free to share yours in the comments section below.

Happy Shopping.

Art Asylum shows off second round of "Best of…" TRU 2-packs

Continuing to give me excellent reasons to go to Toys R Us, Art Asylum posted pack shots of all the upcoming Best of Ghostbusters Minimate 2-packs, drawn from Series 2.

Do the ghosts ever give up?
Do the guys ever get a vacation?
Of course not! And that’s certainly apparent in our latest collection of the good guys vs. the bad guys 2-pks in Toys R Us!

The Series 2 2-pks consist of:

The TRU exclusive Gooey Ray Stantz & Expoding Stay Puft!
Poor Ray! He just can’t seem to get out of harms way. Well, I suppose that’s what you get when you try to think of the “most harmless thing”…

TRU Exclusive Courtroom Peter Venkman & Washington Square Ghost!
Peter’s snarky comments can’t help him out of this one! Good thing he’s got his Proton-Pack with him!

TRU Exclusive Dr. Peter Venkman & Energized Terror Dog!
Okay, who brought a dog to the party? Peter better watch out cause this one is ENERGIZED! Eep!

ANOTHER TRU exclusive Winston Zeddmore & Zombie Taxi Driver!
Oh Winston, you thought this was just a job to pay the bills! Boy, were you wrong. I suppose tho, who could really forsee NYC being overrun with ghosts?

Art Aslyum reveal secret second Stay-Puft bank – on sale now.

Way back in January, Art Asylum showed off pics of one of two new Stay-Puft banks. The one pictured was a normal looking Stay-Puft that glowed blue in the dark. The second was a secret. Well, secret no more; Art Asylum has posted pics of an angry red, glow-in-the-dark Stay-Puft! And the fit to burst Stay-Puft – they’re calling him “Exploding Stay Puft” is now sale now as a Toys R Us exclusive ($19.99USD – free shipping in the US)!

Big ups to John DiBiase for the TRU link!
