TriviaEdit

  • The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man target is the same as the one that came on the back of the GhostPopper packaging, which also has a similar concept.
  • Even though it is based on the Real Ghostbusters design of the Ecto Goggles, it is promoted "as seen in Ghostbusters II movie" in the Action Toy Guide for 1990.
  • On page 6, panel 3, of Ghostbusters Annual 2015, the Ecto Goggles used are visually based on Ecto-Popper and Ecto-Goggles toy
    • Later, on page 8, in the Ecto-Goggle POV, one of the readings is "1989 MHz" - a possible nod to Ghostbusters II, which released in 1989.
