Halloween is here, and with it comes a new addition to the newest member of the Guinness world records family for owning the biggest collection of Ghostbusters memorabilia/merchandise. Ohio’s own Robert O’Connor won the record by woning up to 1,221 different collectible items from the beloved 80’s franchise.
Beginning his collection with a Stay Puft marshmallow man from Kenner. Then what followed was a snowball effect that includes a full series of Kenner Ecto Glows on card, un-punched (valued at $1,500 for just 5 Glows alone) as well as sighned LP’s from Ernie Hudson & Dan Aykeroyd.
O’Conner first sat the original movie at the age of 4. He was quoted as saying that the film: Ghostbusters “allowed me to escape from reality and be that character I saw in the movies. I was able to enjoy being a kid and with Ghostbusters you didn’t need to be strong, fast, or have a super power. You just had to have courage to fight the unknown.”
