I am not really sure what DOMO is other than an angry little Japanese mascot of sorts but he crossed over into Ghostbusters and after much drooling at crane machine games last year, I had discovered a family member was a crane machine wizard and plucked this guy specifically for me.

How cool is he?!

Nerd Block Exclusive Tobin's Spirit Guide

This nifty little book arrived in my June 2016 Nerd Block! It's arrival is bittersweet as it's AMAZEBALLS but at the same time, I just ordered the original red covered one three days prior as I had no idea this was on its way.

Only difference is the cover.

Review to come.

I am still supporting you, BURRRRRRRNHAAAAAAAAM! *shakes fist*

Say what you will....

Walmart end cap - June 25, 2016

Say what you will about the new movie but without it, these two images would not be possible.

Heavenly isn't it?

Ghostbusters Day 2016

Of course, I celebrated Ghostbusters Day on June 8, 2016!

The day's moniker comes from the original 1984 classic movie's opening day in 1984. To celebrate the occasion, Fathom Events held screenings of the 80s movie in theatres worldwide. Being that Duluth had one, I figured it would be a swell time to buddy up with Matt and hit the town!

One of the weirdest product tie ins: Marshmallow Shooter

An odd product tie in... Ghostbusters Marshmallow Shooter!

When I did the Minneapolis thing back in March, I made a pilgrimage to Toys R Us since there isn't one close to me. I was on the search for the Diamond Select Toys 7" Ghostbusters figures but struck out on them. While at the checkouts, I spotted this behind a stock pull cart and excused myself from the cashier to grab it. By doing so, a whole rack of shit fell on me and I had to have some help getting pulled out from under it.

Two Zeddemores and An Accountant

Back when I picked up the TMNT figures from Duluth, I found these guys as well!

The problem that I have found with The Real Ghostbusters toys is that it's kinda rare to find them and when I ask vintage toy collectors about them, they find them.

Mission Success!

I was lucky enough to become a dad in February to a daughter named Harper. She has already gone through a lot of stuff including an open heart surgery at a week old. She's thriving and doing well which is amazing.

My Main Squeeze - Slimer Gelatin Toy

Of all the Ghostbusters 2016...errr, "Answer The Call" toys released, two really caught my eye; the squeezable Slimer and the Slimer whose tongue you could pull.

The spud is classic.

They are aDORBz-able!

This fun little line of figures comes from Funko! in a series called "Dorbz." (I am not going to cross that threshold of why.)

I had a hell of a time tracking these down in the wild. I found Stay Puft via GameStop at the Mall of America while I tracked down treasures in Minneapolis. As for the guys, I begged and pleaded every GameStop employee to look them up in their systems but they oddly aren't listed. They carry every other fucking Dorbz character and even TWO Stay Pufts AND the ECTO-1.

What the holy hell, GameStop?

Pop Funko: He's Escaped Edition

FUNKO! Toys owns a large part of my soul.

These cute vinyl figures have been something that has found their way into my heart and onto my shelves. The stylized characters are translated from so many sources that I had to promise my wife that I'd stop buying all the ones I liked.

But Ghostbusters. There's my loophole.

TMNT Eve: Finding Figures Friday

When I go on adventures to find toys and nostalgic items, it's getting really hard to find Turtles. I thought it was the resurgence of the new TMNT wave but I am starting to think that it is just the pure love for these old Playmate Toys.

Today I got lucky.

Challenge: Ghostbusters 2016 Scavenger Hunt

To help celebrate the upcoming Summer of Ghostbusters, I wanted to ask the Ghosthead Community to come up with some fun and creative challenges for photo or video opportunities to post on social media.

I'll be honest; there is no prize at the time of this writing. It's more so a challenge for all the fans and franchises of the Ghostbusters brand to go forth and create something awesome.

Prizes have been added and will be awarded to the beset three photos. We are looking for creativity and amazing rises to the challenge here. The more challenges you complete in an epic way, the better your odds of winning.

We are keeping the prizes a mystery so far but they are some of the more rare current Ghostbusters merchandise that has escaped the clutches of collectors. Perhaps some ECTO Cooler or Hot Wheels 2 pack action? Maybe a rare version of the Destroyer who isn't such a bad guy?

It's easy to play along; take up a challenge from the list of 84 below, take a photo or video proving your completion of the challenge and lastly post it to your favorite social media platform with the hashtag: #GBHunt with the challenge's title.

For the next few days, if you have an idea for a challenge that you'd like to see on the list, please Tweet it at @heroic35 or message it via the WhoYaGonnaCollect Facebook page. Any unsafe or illegal activities will not be considered. 

If you create the challenge, you can name it! This is actually great seeing as this list could be pulled for future events and cons which means there is your name alongside it!

The most creative, funny, or entertaining entries will be featured here in a future date.

Let's get going!
