I loved the ghost trap information card! The back has all the details about the items inside.
2016 Ghostbusters Unifrom Shirt – Value $15?
The first item in the box is the new-style Ghostbusters uniform t-shirt.
While I would have liked an original style shirt better, I have cautious excitement for the new movie (I love the cast) – so I’m excited to get the new style shirt.
It’s got the logo on the sleeve as well!
Exclusive Slimer Titan – Value $15-20?
This is my favorite item in the box – an exclusive Slimer Titan vinyl figure. I’m not a big Titan fan – but their design style works well with Slimer!
Slimer glows in the dark and has articulation in the arms and wrists – easily my favorite Titan, ever. I can see him about to slime Venkman.
2016 Proton Pack Replica – Value $15-20?
The next item is a replica model of the new Proton Pack. The first thing I noticed was that the packaging was not ideal for collectors who keep boxes for value. Instead, it was in a plastic bag that you have no way of saving.
This left a lot to be desired for me. I didn’t feel that the detail level on the item was high enough for a limited edition collectible. I was excited to get my hands on this, but it was disappointing for when I took a closer look at the details.
Ghostbusters Logo Rub – Value $20-30?
They included a Ghostbusters logo rug. I would consider this more of a bath mat than a rug or doormat – but maybe that’s just me.
You can’t go wrong with the Ghostbusters logo for me – it’s classic. This mat is pretty small, too – it’s got a 2-foot diameter.
Ghostbusters Pin – Value $10?
Liz taught me that pins are on-trend at the moment – so as far as pins go, you can’t get much better for me.
I really like how they kept a lot of similar details to the classic Ecto-1 – it’s such an iconic piece of the franchise that I think it’s important to keep it similar.
Set of 2 Pre-Vis Art Prints – Value $15-20?
The final item is this set of prints. These are concept art pieces for the new movie. I like that it’s something original, but prints are never exciting for me, especially in a higher-priced box.
The last fun piece of the box was the box itself! You can invert it and make a proton pack with the included arm straps:
You can get a sense of the logo mat here as well – it’s not too big.
I had to break out the PKE Meter for pictures! Bustin’ makes me feel good.
Verdict: This box was a bit of a letdown for me. I love the Ghostbusters, and while this wasn’t a bad box, I thought, as a fan, that there was so much more potential for it! I do love the shirt, rug, and especially the Slimer Titan – but the other two items left a lot to be desired for me.
Are you excited for the movie? I have cautious optimism. That’s the best way I can describe it. I’m a fan of the cast, and I’ve loved what they’ve done in the Ghostbusters comics of having different Ghostbusters teams in Chicago and New York – so I’m not totally tied to the original Ghostbuster as much anymore. Fingers crossed. No spoilers in the comments – it takes me forever to get to the movies! I still haven’t seen X-Men!
