The Real Ghostbusters
Merchandise

This page will not list all of The Real Ghostbusters merchandise that has ever been created. These are just some odds and ends that I find interesting and wanted to put on the site, but that don't warrant its own page. Of course, some merchandise can be found in other parts of this site (such as home videos, soundtrack albums, comic books, etc.). For a more detailed collection of Real Ghostbusters merchandise, check out the Ghostbusters Wiki, where you can also find a timeline of release dates.

First Wave Guys & Stay Puft

This is, quite possibly, the very first Real Ghostbusters toy commercial ever made - and if it's not the first, it's definitely the second. The first wave of toys was the four guys (each with buddy ghost and proton pack), Slimer/Green Ghost, and Stay Puft. You see three of those guys (no love for Winston), with their packs and buddy ghosts, and Stay Puft. Slimer/Green Ghost is notably absent, and curiously, a can of Ecto-Plasm is present. Ecto-Plasm was introduced in the second wave of toys, so maybe this commercial was made just when work began on the second wave.
