Collector of The Week – A Vintage Ghostbusters Toy Collection 

A new week means a new post for Collector of the Week here at The Art of Fatherhood. As a fellow geek and collector of all things Pop Culture I wanted to showcase some cool collections that dads share in our community. We love to see this passion in what people collect. We talk about the latest movies, sports memorabilia, Ghostbusters, comic books and video games that we are enjoying at the moment.

This Week’s Collector – A Vintage Ghostbusters Toy Collection

This week’s collector is from Scott. I was really excited to hear his story. His collection speaks to my childhood. I am guessing some of you will feel the same way as well.  

Growing up my family and I didn’t have a lot. My brothers and I didn’t have a lot of toys, but we were lucky to get our own set of Ghostbusters action figures. We loved the movie when it came out. I asked for the action figures and the firehouse for birthday parties and Christmas. I would take care of every action figure and accessories. Now I get to share my collection with my kids. Watching Ghostbusters: Afterlife with them was so special. They enjoy my toys as much as I did when I was their age.

Thanks for sharing Scott. I am a big fan of the Ghostbuster franchise. Your collection takes me down memory lane. I still have a few figures and playsets from when I was growing up. 

Whatcha Got? 

It can be comic books, bottle caps, records, helmets or whatever you are into! I want to see what your passion is and why you started up that collection. For me, I believe that in each collection lies a better story. I want to share your story! Feel free to reach out to me and share your collection.  If you enjoyed this post check out another Collector of the Week article.

  1. My Egon figure’s blue tie snapped off in the exact same spot as his! I actually got a replacement off of eBay as an adult when I was getting the handful of pieces I didn’t own from the Kenner Ghostbusters line and left my old Egon at the Ghostbusters Firehouse at the shrine started in honor of Harold Ramis when he passed.
