Ghostface® NECA Figure’s (UPDATED WITH NEWER RETRO 8″ FIGURE)
Before Scream 4’s arrival in theaters there was also other things in the works, that being GhostFace® NECA figures, Versions included a full plastic type and a half plastic, half cloth type for more movement. Feedback was mixed with some fans but the majority liked the new additions, if you look on the bottom of the packaging you will see people named in the ‘Special Thanks’ those being , Fun World Staff, and Nate Ragon.
Another little toy pops up here in the form of a small GhostFace in a car, GhostFace ‘Racer’ is just a simple toy you pull back and release, as he moves forward his left arm goes up and down with the Knife moving with it.. A nice little classic for ‘The Icon of Halloween’ to get around.. not many of these left these days.. Grab them if you see them.
Ghostface® Pocket Screamer
Following on from the ‘Racer’ we now have another type of toy, simple again and in 3 versions, Scarecrow, Zombie, and Classic mask GhostFace, Push on their stomach’s and a scream is heard and the face lights up in red ! Again, if you see them grab them, i recently went to NYC as i write this, i only found one to buy, the Zombie, These go fast too, grab them if you are lucky to find them.
Spooky Lite Safety Stick
A Simple safety light here which features lights including Skeleton, Ghosts, Witch and GhostFace.. obviously aimed more at the younger audience here, but GhostFace is in there never the less!
Something a little different here.. Thirsty? Well have a drink in your own GhostFace Goblet.. the image does have a link where you can still buy these.. other sites do still sell them too.. I picked one up again while in NYC, and yet again it was the only one i saw.. Grab one!

GhostFace® Halloween Horror Nights Mask
Ever since 2011 the Halloween Horror Nights mask has existed, only for the use of in Universal studios Terror Tram Scream 4 attraction though, 200 masks were sent to Universal for Staff use.. NOT for SALE in the shops AT ALL.. Many a fan has THOUGHT they had one of these masks over time, truth is, not many do have them. RJ Explains for us below.
I guarantee you , since I was the one that had them made, only 250 SPECIAL MASKS were made for the promotion, I sent 200 to universal, some to TWC for certain employees there, a few to WES Craven, and I have been giving some away on TWITTER here and there————–These masks have been either signed by me on the mask on the inside or on the bag depending on what the fans have wanted——I have a few left and will eventually give them away on twitter at the right time —–They are not available in stores, they consist of thicker material, and a slow production run to make them as perfect as possible.
It was my choice to make the SPECIAL EDITION for this promotion, ————-one to have a perfect mask at universal, and to have collector editions out there for some enthusiasm etc..
Protecting the GhostFace Brand
Many imitations of Ghostface® exist and steps have been taken since that time.
RJ Torbert mentions to followers every now and again what has happened with Ghostface things including getting factories to stop making FAKE versions..
Some of his tweets are below. it seems that getting GhostFace protected is a big task.
“We still have IMITATIONS AND KNOCKOFFS STILL BEING SENT TO U.K. AUSTRALIA , CANADA, AND DUBLIN , IRELAND————–FUN WORLD is GETTING even more aggressive than before to protect our INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. STEPS ARE BEING TAKEN TO HAVE MERCHANDISE SEIZED OFF THE COUNTERS .”
Ghost Face “officially” Trademarked in Australia-European Union last year –China within the next 30–40 days –next, factories to be raided
Making more friends “NOT” cracking down on Amazon knock offs –Do not support these people who do not respect trademarks and copyrights
something very hard accomplished, CHINA recogizes GHOST FACE–factories getting cease and desist letters. next step raids if they dont stop.
Another Factory stopped in China —Ghost Face protected in all of Europe/China/Australia/and today Canada officially—with Trademark name.

Apps, Compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch
Before Scream 4 arrived in Theaters we had Apps in development to keep the fans at ease, these are listed below, one seemed to prove popular at first but was then removed from sale on app stores.. That being the voice mask app.. nothing was ever heard back on WHY it was taken off sale, but i can only assume it wasn’t anything good, nothing was ever confirmed.
