The toys of the 80’s were all over the dang map, thus we have Manic Monday where we relive some of our childhood. If you recall the cartoon that came in between Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2, you know all about The Real Ghostbusters. Remember the toys though?
There’s a heap-ton of commercials that we used to enjoy as kids and heck, we remember more about those than some of the shows we watched. To give you an idea, here’s thirty whole minutes of Ghostbusters toy advertisements to drag you right back into it all and onto Ebay to buy your favorites. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
And then there were the odd little ‘bad-guys’…
Try to act like you remember these guys. These two. There’s dozens more, mind you, but these stuck out to me because they’re just so silly.
Of course, some Hero Alternate Costumes!
You want some screaming action figures? We got it! Would you prefer they glow in the freaking dark? NO PROBLEM!
Vehicles. Because of COURSE!
Oh, what, you expected the Ecto-1? NO. WE HAVE THE HIGHWAY HAUNTER! As if you didn’t dream of a Ghostbusters themed Volkswagen Beetle!? Come on, you know you did.
Then Last, but Not Least…
Now, what made this Headquarters playset so rad is that you could drip down specific Ghostbusters ooze down through the roof and it would trickle down and tackle whatever was in its path. The 80’s and 90’s loved an ooze and slime moment when it came to toy playsets. I’m glad we’re over that now and just play with slime by itself and don’t gunk our toys up with it now.
