Any new information about this? Or maybe it was just for the invites to the GhostCorps Official Premier trailer?

They said on Facebook that they are mailing out pins and certificates to all who registered.

I'm sure there will be other stuff as well. This wasn't just for that one event.

This kind of registration could go a couple ways. Like others have stated: Cease and Desist letters. But I think it's more like what Disney decided to do with the 501st. They realized the fanbase is huge and instead of making us disperse, decided to use us as a possible promotional avenue. The 501st is now seeing paid casting calls, I believe all of which are paid at a Hollywood extra rate. Not a terrible deal altogether, but many have been vocal about how it now has us feeding out of their hands.

Im hoping to one day become an official member of the Steel City Ghostbusters crew. I still have to meet the guys in person. Is this something those guys would do (register me with Ghost Corps) ? Or do I need to register to Ghost Corps myself? Im confused.

The Ghostbusters Inc FB fanpage did a run for people who weren't under any specific franchise and registered them under GB Inc... As for meeting with the Steel City peeps, you just have to make the effort to meet them and see what their requirements are to join... Usually not a lot of rules behind it, but franchises differ from State to State, never hurts to ask...

no. im not asking how to join up with those guys. lol. im already talking with them. my question was if the Franchises had to register each person to GhostCorps or if we as individuals had to sign up ourselves.

I think they initially were asking for "franchises" but they've been pretty quiet about this. It's been 2 weeks since they mentioned sending stuff out and there was a post maybe a month before that saying the same thing. I for one am curious to see what we supposedly get. Also, I hope you get into the Steel City group. They're a great bunch.

If I don't see a response here, I would love a private message letting me know what comes from that Registration. Im assuming its too late to try and join?

At the moment, that is it... They update their FB page from time to time about it, last update I saw was the large box of lapel pins being prepared to be sent out... Considering the registration includes a signed certificate of the Franchise's registration, I would assume it requires you to be signed up by the franchise itself, which is why I mentioned you should talk to the franchise so they can sign you up as soon as you become a member. I don't believe you can submit yourself as an individual...

Yes, you were able to register as an individual.

Registration Form (still live link, not sure if they monitor it)
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1iaE-AF ... rm?c=0&w=1

So I'm not sure if you can still register, but it does look like you were able to register as an individual.

Again, you can register as an individual. They don't provide a certificate for every person in the franchise, so even if you sign up with your local franchise, I don't see how you'd end up with a personal certificate. They only provide one per franchise it seems.

What you can get is a pin, if they will ship extras to new members of existing franchises.

To get yourself a pin, you may want to contact Ghost Corps on Facebook and ask what the rules are going to be. If this is a one-off thing, you may want to explain your situation and ask if you should register as an individual so that you get one.

If they're only doing this in one round, you might be out of luck if you wait until you sign up with your local chapter.

They actually responded rather quickly. They said to register as an individual now so they can have time to go through all the submitted forms.

I would love to have one of these pins and to be official through Steel City as well one day.



I always wanted to be a Ghostbuster when I was a kid "and NOW IT LOOKS LIKE IT MAY ACTUALLY HAPPEN" :cool:

Got my groups certificate and pins in the mail today. It's really cool. I still think it was awesome of them to do this for us.
Do you remember when you registered? Im just trying to see what kind of a turn around time people are getting on this?

Yes, I do think this is one great thing they are doing for the fans.

As far as I know, nothing has hit the east coast yet. I don't think any Ohio teams have received anything yet and speaking with a friend from a Virginia group, they haven't received anything either. Travis, have Steel City received anything? did they say?

No. No one has received anything yet, but have any of you seen the recent snap chat from ghost corps?? Ivan Reitman is showing off the world collection of recent Franchise badges they have collected. Some of Ohio and Steel Citys badges are in the Snap Chat along with a bunch of others. Maybe we will all see the Certificates soon hopefully??

I registered as soon as ghost corps posted it. I've heard from a few ppl that it seems that groups with ecto's seem to be getting them first. Not sure how true this is but I do own a daily driven ecto. So I'm not sure if that made a difference. Oh I also live in Ontario Canada and I've noticed I got mine before others in the USA.
