Renewed hope for Eaglemoss Ecto-1 builders


Back in July we reported growing concerns regarding collectable model company Eaglemoss Ltd, which at the time had ceased online communication with it's customers, and was in the process of appointing an administrator - putting the future of their "Build the Ghostbusters Ecto-1" model in doubt.

However today there is renewed hope that those customers who had been collecting the model may get the change to finish their Ecto-1 models in the near future. As revealed by Jason Fitzsimmons at Ghostbusters News, Premium & Collectibles Trading Co. has acquired a number of former Eaglemoss assets and licences, and amongst the brands Premium & Collectibles is looking to eventually resume is the Eaglemoss Ecto-1 model, complete with a web page with a notification link.

The fanhome website has detailed that collectors will get the opportunity to resume where they were up to when Eaglemoss filed for bankruptcy (rather than have to start the whole build from issue #1).

Additionally, Jason was able to learn through communication with Premium & Collectibles Trading Co. that potential customers won't be able to purchase specific back-issues, or purchase items in bulk. He was also able to learn that Premium & Collectibles Trading Co. will be offering the acquired licenses to Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Hasbro Proton Pack ALICE Frame Buyers Guide!


We've had a LOT of questions regarding ALICE Frames and which ones will work with the upcoming Hasbro Spengler's Proton Pack. There are a lot of different styles of frames out there from various different manufacturers. The good news is that nearly all of them will work, but there is one specific style to AVOID!

Most styles of ALICE Frames currently being produced are known as "LC-1" style. They match the style that was made in the 1970's and the ones that were used in the Ghostbusters films. While original frames from the 70's are rare, there are still a lot of replica frames that will suit the Hasbro Proton Pack.

Fox Outdoor

The Fox Outdoor Frame has been a long standing favorite of the Ghostbusters Prop building community. It is a very solid replica and uses sturdy metal and has good quality control. You can buy these frames from GBFans, Amazon or FoxOutdoor directly.

Fox Outdoor: ... pack-frame


The Rothco frame is another strong contender and if you are looking to match the styling of Ghostbusters Afterlife, this is the one for you! These are the same frames they used in Ghostbusters Afterlife. Just be aware, the quality of the frame is much weaker than the other two options (in our opinion). They are available on Amazon through two different sellers:

Army Universe:

We sell an LC-1 Replica Frame! This is the closest replica to the original LC-1 that exists. We took the common replica frame and beefed up the metal so that it matches the same thickness as the original frames. These are available, but sold without the pads. Replica LC-1 pads are also available! ... ack-frame/


Finally. We have received reports from those who already have the Hasbro Proton Pack in hand. They have found that the LC-2 will not work without modifications. The problem stems from the different style of cross bar. This bar will apparently not allow the frame to work with the Hasbro Proton Pack.

You can identify an LC-2 frame by the green color (not black) and the cross bar. Be aware that most sellers do not know the difference and will list their LC-2 frame as an LC-1 frame. Be on the lookout and ask for specific pictures!

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed 2023 updates teased


It's been less than two months since game studio Illfonic released Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, and while most players will have now completed the game's story campaign, the asymmetrical multiplayer title is still proving enjoyable... And as the birth of a new year approaches, Illfonic has teased some of the new updates to the game's content for 2023: the addition of Muncher from Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and a new map.

Muncher will be joining Ectoplast, Ghouly, Basher, Howler, and Poltergeist as a new class of ghost, largely-in part due to his popularity... With the game studio revealing that Muncher has been the most-requested ghost to be added to the game so far.

Illfonic has also revealed concept art for a new map (which can be viewed in the topic here), Facility, which Design Director Jordan Mathewson has detailed:
"The look that this play space is worn by time gives the players a unique feeling compared to our current job locations (maps). Construction workers are civilians and have begun a restoration of this facility that has uncovered why it was abandoned in the first place. Varied corridors combined with medium-sized rooms are built stacked up to provide a unique, more intimate gameplay experience with a creepier aesthetic. There will be some interesting ways to utilize these new areas in this map to each player's, Ghostbuster or Ghost, advantage. We will share more soon!"

The release dates for Muncher and Facility are yet to be announced, but given Illfonic's intention to release DLC on a quarterly basis, we may see the new material for the game go live early in the new year.
