I can’t remember if it was Tim “the toolman” (“The Tool Man?) Taylor, or his trusty life partner Al who placed more faith in the capabilities of a solid set of Binford tools, but I would have liked to have seen them try their hand at creating an ecto-containment unit. Geoff actually owns the Ghostbusters fire hall playset – he bought it instead of paying his rent one month, as I recall – WITH containment unit still intact. From all accounts, the fire hall playsets are still plentiful in the wild, but most have been disfigured – the containment unit lost removed and presumably lost forever to the sands of time or sandbox, whichever comes first.

Here’s an unveiling of a factory sealed fire house after 22 years under cellophane!
