2012 Matty Prop!

Ecto Goggles!!! The one item outstanding in my uniform is the goggles. Primarily because you can’t ship the frames to Canada for whatever reason. I haven’t been able to buy a pair. But now I’ll be able to order a bonafide genuine pair of goggles. granted they look like toys but with a little bit of effort – some skill with painting and a few addon’s they’ll be looking like new in no...

Ghosbusters3 Evolves Again

Ghosbusters3 Evolves Again

Well, last we heard Dan and Harold were squirreled away madly writing the script for Ghostbusters 3, and re-writing it. Bill Murray said he’d only be on board if he thought the script was worthy. So I guess we owe some kudos to the Mr Murray for being our Quality control on the film. Recently “Men in Black 3” scribe Etan Cohen, was brought in to take the plot idea’s that Dan and Harold came up with and make a polished script. “The Office” scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky were hired in September 2008 to breath life into the blockbuster franchise that started in 1984 with Ivan Reitman’s “Ghostbusters.” a film that was Columbia Pictures’ highest-grossing film ever, until it was beaten by “Men in Black” and then “Spider-Man.” The third installment has been foretold to find original cast members Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray passing the torch to a new generation of Ghostbusters and Dan has hinted that this happens in the wake of a 2012 apocalypse scenario. Cohen previously wrote Ben Stiller’s “Tropic Thunder” and Mike Judge’s “Idiocracy.” He’s also attached to make his directorial debut with Paramount’s horror-comedy “Boy Scouts vs. Zombies,” which follows three high school Boy Scouts who must use their skills to save their small town from a vicious zombie outbreak. Cohen was the sole credited writer on “Men in Black 3,” which has grossed more than $600 million worldwide since opening at the end of May. So this Ghosthead hasn’t lost hope that an amazing Ghostbusters film is enroute. We’ll...

Hope Dworaczyk Sexy Ghosthunter

Hope Dworaczyk Sexy Ghosthunter

Original Article: Adult Swim: Celeb-Nerdy If you’re able to sit still between pounding Milk Duds and fun-sized Kit Kats, let us be the first to welcome you to a very special Halloween edition of Celeb-Nerdy, wherein we talk to the glitziest celebrati about their nerdy hobbies or unusual fascinations. In this edition: Hope Dworaczyk. Okay, okay, where do we get off calling Hope Dworaczyk a nerd? Well, she started it last year by beingPlayboy‘s first playmate whose pictorials required 3-D glasses to properly enjoy them. But more importantly, the girl has an odd — and very real — attraction to ghosts. Just don’t ask her to seeGhostbusters, though. Playmate of the Year 2010 So, you dig ghosts? The paranormal. Yeah. When I was growing up at one time we lived in a house that I know was haunted. My mom isn’t somebody who really believes in ghosts, and since I’m older now I told her, “You remember that house, mom?” She thinks now it was haunted too, even though she doesn’t really believe in it. But it was across from the railroad tracks. That’s when I first really got into paranormal things. At night I would see things, and looking back, you know when you’re a child imagining things? But there were times when lamps would be moved, and it was just the creepiest, old, old house. This was in Port Lavaca, which was where I grew up. It’s a ranch farm town with very few people way out in the country. [Laughs.] I guess the whole story where you’d set up a ghost story would be there. So, across from old railroad tracks, the house was about 100 years-old. But that’s probably when I first decided that I believe in ghosts. I became obsessed with going into a place and I could immediately feel if there are spirits in the place or not. [Laughs.] I like staying in old hotels or exploring that. My friends always tell me not to do any paranormal researching in their homes, because if there is something they don’t want to know. [Laughs.] “I became obsessed with going into a place and I could immediately feel if there...

Casting Call?

Casting Call?

Seems as of late, for a film that allegedly isn’t going anywhere, there is lots of production being done. I wonder if the ol’ bate and switch is happening. Tell the folks one thing and do another. Recently Dan was interviewed and essentially revealed that there is indeed no chance of Bill Murray coming back to do this film. That there was no hard feelings and they’re not going to let this get between them as friends. Now that all aside the folks over at Ghostbusters News had posted on their facebook this casting call screen shot looking for actors that looked like all the Ghostbusters when they were young? hmmm what could this be for? I was a little skeptical myself wondering if this was legit, so I made and account on the website and went in myself to see what was what. Sure enough it’s an actual casting call however, when I was viewed it they were only  looking for a Harold Ramis double. They must have found the others already. At the moment this just leaves me with lots of questions. Is this for Ghostbusters 3? Dan did mention in the past that filming would start this spring.  Is this for some promo? is this for a video game or extra’s that are to be added to some special edition of the current DVD/Blu-Ray films. This also lines up with the fact that on the Sony pictures lot several stars have had their photo’s taken with Ecto1.. curious.. time will...

Light-em Up Boys!

Light-em Up Boys!

A huge round of applause goes to D&A (Devin Dyke, Andrea Lucius) of Gbfans.com for building these amazing light kits. The kits formerly known as R2Devo’s light kits can be purchased by visiting this thread over at gbfans.com (Light Kits). This is his 8th version of the light kit which I’ve noticed just get better and better. I wasn’t expecting the packaging to be as professional as it was which was a really nice surprise. And the Crunch bar included was just the cherry on the top I thought. I haven’t put the kit together yet as Halloween is gone and past so I’m saving this for a cold winter day project. But here are some pictures of the kit box opening. I managed to snag the PDF provided by Devin for assembling this kit. If you need this you can view it...

Assembling a Dream

Assembling a Dream

Well, last Nov started this adventure. My Pack is washed with warm water and a mild soap to make sure all the chemical that assists in the shell releasing from the mold. Then I primed it and gathered the other parts of my pack. Thanks to MultiMediaMayhem.com for providing all the parts I bought. Normally I’d love to build everything from scratch. But time is a commodity that I just don’t have so support the artists that create these parts for their fellow fans. This is the HGA and Booster Frame. Painted and ready to be added. a little Gorilla Glue, which is awesome holds these guys on with amazing strength. This is the Booster Plug, painted and ready to go into the Booster tube, which is what the Booster Frame screws on too. Update:Oct 24th 2011 So, I’ve had my shell for a bit. And I just wasn’t convinced that the Gorilla glue was going to hold the parts on, so I got some smaller screws and from the bottom of the pack I drilled some holes. The screws just gave it that little bit of extra strength. So I’m really happy about that. I didn’t have the correct hoses, but with my order from MultiMediaMayhem he was nice enough to send some scraps of loose hoses he had around a blue and green hose.. so since the one hose was covered completely by split loom I used the green tubing for that. And then had enough blue hose for the rest of the pack. I then hit up the Home Depot and found some red wire that was the same diameter that I needed as the hose would have been and it worked great. Next I drilled and mounted all the legris hose brackets that I purchased from MMM. They went in pretty smoothly and I glued them for a little extra strength. Imagining that I’m in a convention hall, with tons of fans.. bumping into other costumes.. I wanted to make sure that nothing could get knocked off. Then came the painting, and weathering. Lastly, here is some screenshots of the movie pack, so you can get a sense of the...
