Real Ghostbusters Fitment Guide

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

No other way of putting this… we goofed!

There are 2 *slightly* different main sizes of Kenner Real Ghostbusters figures.  When we say *slightly* we mean it’s so insignificant that you don’t notice it at first glance.  The picture below is a Fright Features cardback on top of an Ecto Glow cardback.  You can barely see the edge of the Ecto Glow card, but it’s there!

So, how did we goof?  We had the cases made to “Exact Fit” the slightly smaller size.  🙁

That means some of your RGB will fit perfectly and you will love them… and the others you’ll cry a little inside just like we’re doing.  So, what now??

Luckily, the “next size up” of cases we make (which is the TMNT2 size) makes a great alternative to the ones that don’t fit quite right.  Check out this Ecto Glow shown in a TMNT2 size case.

Does it fit exact?  No, but it gets the job done.  It fits “centered” which means the left and right edges are covered by the side lip on each side when the cardback is centered in the case.  Is this ideal?  No, but like we mentioned it gets the job done until we can work on a more permanent solution.  The good news is, when you case them all together and hang them up, you won’t even notice the different size cases.  We put together a buying guide below.  We’re still trying to fill in all the pieces so if you have any input on cardbacks we haven’t listed or tried yet please message us and help us fill in the gaps!

UPDATE May 2020:  We are working on a new case RGB2 size that will corrects our “oops” where it’s slightly bigger on all dimensions.  It should fit the ones we previously recommended for TMNT2 as well as Stay Puft and a few others including the new 2020 “Kenner” Ghostbusters reissues (which also seem to fit a bit too snug for comfort in the current RGB1 cases).  Keep following our Facebook page for announcements on your feed or just check here periodically.
