Some Pretty Awesome ‘Ghostbusters’ Set Polaroids Just Hit eBay

Sitting on a bunch of money? We’ve got just the thing for ya.

The 1984 Ghostbusters is unquestionably one of the most iconic and beloved films of all time, so naturally, countless books, websites, and documentaries have chronicled nearly every step of the production process. You’ll find tons of behind the scenes photos all across the net… but we’ve just come across some vintage Polaroids that even the biggest diehards have probably never seen.

During a recent adventure down the eBay rabbit hole I stumbled upon the account RareVintageShirts, and it wasn’t the shirts that caught my eye. At the time of writing this post, the seller is parting with eight Polaroid photos that were taken on the set of Ghostbusters. He notes that they’re from the collection of Joe Viskocil, who was the film’s effects supervisor.

The photos were taken in early 1984 for effects, wardrobe, and continuity purposes, and they mostly showcase the various props and costumes that helped bring Slimer and Stay Puft to life. The prices range between $112 and $314, but even if you can’t afford to shell out that kind of dough, just looking at them should put a smile on your face. They damn sure put one on mine.

    I thought we all agreed to stop using the poor overused and abused word “awesome” for the new year and let it heal.

    Does any practical effects-experienced user know: What are those things sticking into Stay Pufft’s arm? Are they fire-effect related?

      I’m assuming they’re there to attach it to the high-rise at it climbs it.
