The Real Ghostbusters and Masters of the Universe Knitting Patterns (Intarsia, 1986/1987)

Not exactly Halloween-relevant, but I just couldn’t wait when I saw these. So much gold. That poor Ghostbusters kid. I hope he made enough money for some Nintendo games.

The Powers of Grayskull was supposed to be a 1987 Masters of the Universe spinoff, but the forces of justice prevailed, and we were not forced to endure another round of idiotic characters with names like He-Ro, who happens to be the guy standing next to He-Man. Not sure what’s going on with all the dinosaurs, and not sure why the designs have nothing to do with the cover of the product. The Cringer sweater is the best.

Yet another format made popular by Star Wars, it was well in decline by this time. Kids were too busy making stuff on computers. The last poster pen set associated with a major franchise/film may have been Jurassic Park (1992). There was also a Star Trek: The Next Generation set that came out around the same time.
