#GhostbustersWeek continues on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine...

For over thirty years, kids have been dressing up as Ghostbusters... for playtime, for Halloween, and now as grownups, sometimes the occasion strikes to still dress-up as a Ghostbuster. From Rubies comes a new line Grand Heritage Costumes that are on the higher-end for a more screen-accurate, realistic appearance. These are geared totally toward grownups, and are available from my allies over at Entertainment Earth. Whether you want the classic, 1984 look, or the modern 2016 look, they're available for men and women alike...

#GhostbustersWeek continues with a look at Ghostbustin' in brick form...

For several years, GHOSTBUSTERS was one of the most-requested licenses that fans were rallying for the folks at LEGO Group to get their hands on. After a successful run as part of the LEGO Ideas program, eventually an Ecto-1 along with the classic lineup of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore in minifigure form was released. While that set first hit in 2014 to celebrate 30 years of the 1984 GHOSTBUSTERS film, for 2016, there's plenty of options when it comes to the capturing and containment of ghosts in LEGO brick form, from building sets to the toys-to-life LEGO Dimensions Video Game...

#GhostbustersWeek continues on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine with even more pop-fashion... classic style.

When it comes to officially-licensed GHOSTBUSTERS apparel, perhaps no one has a bigger selection available than the folks at 80sTees.com. While they've got numerous different options including costume shirts and those with famous slogans ("Who Ya Gonna Call?"; "We Came We Saw"), you can't go wrong with the classic "No Ghost" logo created by Michael C. Gross. Available on many different colors of shirt for both men and women alike, you can show your GHOSTBUSTERS pride no matter if you dig the 1984 team, the 2016 team, or both!

#GhostbustersWeek continues with a pair of figures you won't want to roast or fry...

For the past few years, PPW Toys has been expanding their line of PopTaters by mashing-up pop culture licenses like STAR WARS and MARVEL Comics with unique Mr. Potato Head figures created under license from Hasbro. This summer, the GHOSTBUSTERS are in on the PopTater action, and the first pair has hit the streets under the GHOSTBUSTERS Classics banner, with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man facing off against a lone Ghostbuster, but one that it's a safe bet to say was modeled largely after Dan Aykroyd's Ray Stantz (ECTO goggles!). After all, it was Ray who chose to summon Gozer in the form of Mr. Stay Puft - "something that could never possibly destroy us." Each are available now from my allies at Entertainment Earth, or direct from the PPW Toys website. Check them out in-action here at Rock Father HQ!

#GhostbustersWeek continues on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine with a pop-fashion feature on one of my favorite mashups. From designer Helljester comes SLIMER THRASHIN' MAD- a t-shirt that posits the lovable green ghost as he might appear should he have stepped in for late SLAYER guitarist Jeff Hanneman instead of Exodus' Gary Holt. Who knew that Slimer was a left-handed player?

The Ecto-1 in 1984's GHOSTBUSTERS is no doubt one of the most iconic vehicles of film and television, a symbol from the 80s that will last for all time. While it's the '84 version most-often seen (and reproduced in 1:1 replica form), I've always been a big fan of the car as it appeared in 1989's GHOSTBUSTERS II, upgraded after falling into disrepair (if you'll recall, the Ghostbusters had hit some tough times), cleaned-up and packed with new gear and a ton of flair. As a big fan of Mattel's Hot Wheels (and their Retro Entertainment and HW Screen Time cars), getting my hands on an Ecto-1 or Ecto-1A had escaped me for years, with numerous versions of my preferred 1:64-scale released and becoming hot items on the secondary market. That's changed now, as both have been reissued in a Classic GHOSTBUSTERS 2-pack ahead of the 2016 reimagining!
