According to Tobin's Spirit Guide, European villagers eventually got wise to Lothgar's tricks and imprisoned him in a barren, empty world inside an enchanted clock with the gears jammed to ensure that Lothgar would remain in the clock. After 100 years, the clock arrived at Toy Tower, the world's largest toy store, in New York, where the gears are fixed by a mechanic named Sam. Lothgar sends out three minions to seek out his replacement. They to possessed three toys that become presents for Lawerence's birthday. The three possessed toys then took Lawrence to Lothgar's world, where the demon convinced the boy that he will get everything he wants.
Lothgar sensed Peter Venkman presence and imprisoned him in a candy cage, to prevent any interference. Louis Tully and the other Ghostbusters came just in to rescue both him and Lawrence. At that time, Lothgar tricked Lawrence into trading places with him, freeing Lothgar and dooming Lawrence to take Lothgar's place as prisoner of Toyland. Fortunately, Lothgar was trapped near the pan dimensional portal. Since Lothgar's powers were now nullified, Toyland began to collapse. Everyone escaped and the Ghostbusters destroyed the clock for good measure.
