As a soon to be parent I am so excited to start buying toys for my son. Everyone loves getting something and when I browse the toys now they are just amazing at what is out there. So the toys will kinda be for both of us, for a while. So every tuesday I’m going to dip into my own childhood toybox of things I have saved, or things I remember playing with and kind of discuss them or at least fondly remember them.
Today is the Ecto – 1 from the 80’s Ghostbusters
I’m sure over time I will cover my Ghostbusters collection in great detail. movies, toys, all of it. But to kick things off its the car. The best accessory for the Ghostbusters. I remember trying to perfect that siren sound, even trying to record it off the movie and play it back when playing with the toys to really get a ” real life” feeling.” A few accessories have gone missing for it, the back door is long gone, but it still holds a place in my toy box and has held up great. More than once the ecto-1 become an airborne toy flying off rams and thrown through the air after ghosts, it also doubled as a water vehicle and occasional island refuge for some reason. All plastic I’m impressed it still stands and I guess my son will just have to love Ghostbusters as well, but I guess he can play with it either way.
