Favorite movie isn’t the only category Ghostbusters: Answer The Call is apart of.
During that super football game where some of us think something mysterious happened, Netflix show Stranger Things aired a commercial with the previously talked about (GBI Blog Post, February 3, 2017) Ghostbusters teaser.
Now Entertainment Weekly has an [Warning: Possible Spoilers] article about Stranger Things season 2 plot. With a clue for ghostheads and Stranger Things fans about why Mike, (Finn Wolfhard) Dustin, (Gaten Matarazzo) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) are dressed in fairly accurate Ghostbusters costumes for the time.
If you haven’t seen their Super Bowl commercial yet, its embedded below. If you’re not caught up with season 1, it may contain possible spoilers.
Netflix show Stranger Things, with season 1 taking place in 1983 in part is also a tribute to “real” ’80s entertainment nostalgia. Ghosheads wondered if Stranger Things could take a break long enough from their seriousness to mention Ghostbusters when they get to 1984. Ghostheads and uh Stranger Things fans would just have to wait until New Years.
On that important Ghostbusters like day Stranger Things Twitter account tweeted:
After revealing packaging art (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 2, 2017) for their upcoming Ghostbusters play sets, Playmobil (US) shared photos of there booth from an international toy fair. Which we assume was London Toy Fair. As there isn’t an intern around, their isn’t really a reason to check.
After the break we’re sharing the Playmobil Ghostbusters photos they’ve shared with fans worldwide!
Possible spoilers ahead.
In addition to Ghostbusters toys from Playmobil (GBI Blog Post, January 9, 2017) Funko is producing 6″ vinyl figures in Playmobil’s style! Funko revealed Doctor Peter Venkman and Doctor Raymond Stantz in their packaging. Hopefully ghostheads and collectors will get an Egon and really hopefully a Winston Funko/Playmobil vinyl figure during 2017.
After the break, a closer look and additional information.

When I wrote December 3, 2016 personal update I wasn’t planning on renewing the domain name for Ghostbusters International. Which did or was going to expire today.
I felt at the time with the site’s inactivity and what has been going on in my personal life, better at the time to save the price of approximately 4 cups of that star place’s coffee. I usually make my own coffee anyway.
It still made sense to wait and be somewhat responsible when it comes to fun. The renewal price has been there from multiple sources (i.e.: gift cards) going back at least two years.
As of today ghostbustersintern.com has been renewed for another year. As I move forward I’d like to get back to updates. It depends on the real responsibilities.
