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!


Most of these challenges ask that you mix in something Ghostbusters related such as wearing a t-shirt, using a Kenner toy, or going to the extreme by putting on a proton pack and taking the photo.

That's it, I took us over halfway there and now it is up to the Ghostbusters community to take us the rest of the way! Think of a challenge, name it and send it to me! Make it as easy or hard as you would like but remember that I will be giving you full credit for it so the community can curse or praise your name!

Special thanks to the members of the Ghostbusters Inc. Facebook group for pitching in a lot of these ideas! Casey, Julie, Keith, and Mayette are rocking this out!

Keep in mind that the challenges can be: 
  • Movie related
  • Comic related
  • Merchandise related
  • Respectfully related to the Ghosthead community
  • Please try to keep them broad so everyone can attempt them all (young, old, gear or no gear)

Special thanks to the ZKT PKE Surge Scavenger hunt for some of these ideas. 

If anyone wants to take on scoring or partner up with me regarding prizes for this challenge, please let me know! I just want to create a fun event for us all to celebrate another Ghostbusters movie FINALLY!
