The film Ghostbusters was released in June 1984 and became a cultural phenomenon and an instant classic, reaching No. twenty-eight in the American Film Institute's top 100 comedies of all time and voted funniest film of the past twenty-five years by Entertainment Weekly in 2008. The release of the film marked the beginning of a franchise that would include a sequel (with a third film being released in 2016, more than thirty years later), comics, television series and action figures. In this book, author and collector Matt MacNabb takes a look at the best of Ghostbusters collectables, including action figures of the four Ghostbusters themselves, some of the most famous ghosts from the films and models of Ecto-1. The book also looks at some of the most unusual collectables as well as looking at what might be collectable in the future.
Covering collectables from 1984 to the present day, including many of the superb toys produced by Kenner, this is an essential read for anyone looking to own their very own iconic jumpsuit, Slimer or Ecto-1.
