Hasbro reveals modification to Spengler's Neutrona Wand for future cosplay use


Following the successful crowdfunding of the HasLab Proton Pack, manufacturer Mattel has released a statement detailing a modification that will be applied to all future Spengler's Neutrona Wands, including those that are currently on preorder:
Hasbro wrote: Hey there Ghostbusters fan,

Thank you for your recent order. We understand you purchased the Plasma Series Spengler’s Neutrona Wand and wanted to inform you of a slight color modification on the tip of the wand, from silver to orange.

With the recent addition of the Ghostbusters HasLab Proton Pack and compatibility with the Neutrona Wand, the product has evolved from collector item to roleplay item. The cosmetic modification will allow people to use the Neutrona Wand freely in cosplay and public environments, like comic conventions. We understand the new design differs slightly from the product shown earlier.
The discussion regarding this change to the Neutrona Wand can be found in this topic.

It's 2022, and with a new year comes the promise of new Ghostbusters merchandise, and first out of the gate is, an offshoot of that has a listing for a new wearable Proton Pack conceived in a similar vein to populat Spirit Halloween replica.

However this is not a simple repackage of the Spirit product, but a whole new build from the ground up. Some elements are similar to the Spirit design, while others are vastly different.
Whilst the specifics for the new Pack are yet to be revealed, the first substantial difference is the Pack shell, which appears to be more accurate in proportion and depth (and is notably deeper from front-to-back compared to the Spirit Pack's more streamlined shell).

A further substantial departure is this replica has an A.L.I.C.E.-style frame for the shoulder straps.

Also in departure from the template established by Spirit, the Pack's electronics appear to be concentrated solely in the Proton Gun, resulting in there being no apparent lights fitted into the Pack shell itself.

One listing detail that can be revealed about this new Pack is the rather startling retail price of $499.99, which we suspect will decrease substantially when this Pack goes on sale June 21st.

More photos of the pack can be seen in the topic.

Famed Ghostbusters "making of" book included in upcoming 4K gift set


With the end of the year and the anniversary of the defeat of Vigo the Carpathian in little over a week, more information is trickling out about the various home media releases of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, including a special 8-disc 4K Blu-Ray gift set containing Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, two discs of special features, and an apparent re-release of Don Shay's Making Ghostbusters.

Originally published in 1985, Making Ghostbusters was compiled by Cinefex founder Don Shay, who had curated similar coffee table books for the productions and special effects of Alien and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The book itself featured an annotated and illustrated version of the October 7th 1983 script of Ghostbusters, as well as a wealth of photographs and production drawings which helped inform the fledgling Ghostbusters prop community.

Details about the re-release are limited at the moment, however for those who are interesting in buying the book along with the 4K set, it is currently priced at $88.99 on, and scheduled for release on February 5th 2022.
