Plans unveiled for refurbishment of Firestation 23

It's been just over eight years since a troupe of Ghostheads got the chance to tour Firestation 23, and the subsequent years from the station's centenary haven't been as kind to the Los Angeles Firehouse as they have to its New York cousin.

However, it appears old L.A. #23 is set to have it's time in the sun. Curbed reports that the long-delayed plan to convert the station into an arts centre may finally be gaining traction, with work anticipated to begin in February 2019.

Architecture firm Brooks+Scarpa is helming the redevelopment project, and has already released some visualisations of what the ground floor engine bay will look like following the restoration (view the topic to check these out).

We here at GBFans are excited at the prospect of a part of our culture receiving a much-needed rehabilitation. We hope to bring you more information as the project progresses.

In an update on our previous story, toy manufacturer Playmobil has been showcasing it's new Ecto-1A set and 6-inch upscaled Ghostbusters figures at New York Comic Con.

Those already familiar with the Playmobil Ghostbusters series are unlikely to be disappointed, as the reproduction of the car appears to be to the same high standard as its predecessor.

Prices and release dates are still yet to be confirmed. More photos of the sets can be seen via the gallery at

Playmobil to release Ecto-1A and 6inch figures


It's been just shy of a year since Playmobil announced the first expansion to it's Ghostbusters product line, and fans will once again be treated to more sets based on the boys in grey in the near future.

A scan from a German copy of the Playmobil catelogue has revealed that the toy company will be producing a replica of the Ecto-1A, a box set containing all four Ghostbusters, and a set of individually-packaged 6inch tall (twice the normal size) versions of the four Ghostbusters - similar to Funko Playmobil figures released a few years ago. The figures and car are expected to be released in May 2019.

Details are limited at this time, we will update this story when more becomes available.
