Special #2

Throughout the subscription build of models like this Eaglemoss 1:8 scale Ghostbusters Ecto-1, the publisher typically includes ‘Special Offers’. These items are automatically sent, and are billed in addition to the monthly subscription.

Special #1 was the four Proton Packs and a Ghost Trap. This time around, it is a limited-edition 12 x 16″ color-printed poster. Each poster includes a unique numbered Certificate of Authenticity signed by artist the artist, Brian Williamson. Eaglemoss will charge us $42.95 for these items.

Sadly, I have already reached out to Eaglemoss and turned this offer down. I am not paying that much for a little poster I know I will not use.

Free Gift #3

If you signed up for the subscription-based version of the Eaglemoss 1:8 scale Ghostbusters Ecto-1 partworks build-up, you were supposed to receive five FREE gifts along the way. The first gift was the Collector’s Binder, the second was a License Plate, and this third one is this Baseball Cap. This gift arrived with Issue 6 (Stages 15-18).

This Baseball Cap is a cloth stitched cap with an adjustable strap at the back. The logo on the front is a multi-color silkscreen effect:

This is not the same hat as the one advertised on the Build the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 website:

It is a decent hat, but I don’t wear hats, so there is not much I will do with it. I ended up giving it away to a friend.
