Description from Action Toy Guide (Summer 1990)
Ghosts can hide almost anywhere, but now they're easier to capture! The end of the GHOST NABBER wand shoots out to quickly grab a cloth ghost from any hiding place. Store the ghost inside the containment unit. Comes with pneumatic GHOST NABBER wand, ghost containment unit with adjustable shoulder strap, and 3 cloth ghosts that can hide anywhere. (Available Fall 1990)
- It is based loosely off of the Specter Detector, which itself was based off of the Ghost Sniffer in the first film.
- The cloth ghosts are Big Mohawk Ghost, Horizontal Grin Ghost, and Slimer.
