If you’re looking for the ultimate cosplay prop or collectible, this Ghostbusters Spengler Legacy Proton Pack Prop Replica is sure to impress. With its impeccable detail and movie accuracy, this would help complete an incredible Halloween costume. However, since it’s cost is commensurate with its quality, you might prefer to just keep it on display instead of wearing it out. Fortunately, it comes with a display stand.
Unlike other Proton Pack replicas, this one was created by directly casting a hero pack that was used in the movie production with special permission from Sony. This makes this full-size replica astonishingly accurate to the nuclear powered Proton Pack designed by Egon Spengler and Ray Stantz. It is constructed of metal, fiberglass, resin, and acrylic, with a master paint job to match the textures, weathering, and even the dents and scratches from the original. Best of all, the toggle switches and wand buttons trigger an electronic sequence making it look like this replica really works.
In June of 2017 ANOVOS was granted permission by Sony, Sony Archives, and Ghostcorp to mold and cast the original Dr. Spengler Hero Proton Pack (named this because of the “Spengler” annotation written on the back of the piece). This monumental opportunity kick-started a flurry of activity bringing together the best and the brightest of Ghostbusters prop building community to aide in the meticulous molding of a highly revered piece of cinematic history.
Using only the best molding techniques and the finest of platinum silicones to minimize mold shrinkage, our team employed ingenious techniques to painstakingly capture every detail, warp, and crack of the original Spengler pack.
Upon completion of the molding process and returning the original pack to the Archives, the same team took to the careful process of recreating the “master” paint sample. Matching the actual pack, the movie replica recreates the same textures and weathered appearance dent for dent and scratch for scratch befitting the Legacy replica standard.
This offering is subject to both changes in availability and features. This article is a fine art collectible meant for adults only.
Quality and accuracy like this don’t come cheap. This Ghostbusters Spengler Legacy Proton Pack Prop Replica costs $3499.99 at Entertainment Earth, where it is currently available for pre-order. It is expected to ship in January 2019. It comes with a certificate of authenticity. It’s too late for this Halloween, but if you can afford it, this can be an essential part of an amazing Ghostbusters costume.
