You’ve at all times needed your very personal Ghostbusters Proton Pack. Your choices have been: discover a low-cost toy, 3D print, sand and paint your personal, pay for somebody to do it for you, begin with a premade package, or painstakingly construct one thing much more intricate from scratch.

Here’s a sixth means that may be the best and most cost-effective but: pay Hasbro $400 for this incredible-looking thing:

Hasbro says the Ghostbusters Plasma Sequence Spengler’s Proton Pack is predicated on 3D scans of the particular film prop from Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and it’s full with lights, sounds (from each 1984 and 2021), a cyclotron you can open up and dismantle, a full set of straps so you can put on it, and apparently an incredible quantity of improbable weathering.

I reached out to my Ghostbusters-loving buddy for context, who’s been attempting to construct his personal for years. He was impressed by the value, stating that you can easily pay $400 only for a reliable physique package to assist you construct your personal, not to mention a completed product with this degree of element, and the price of all the bits you’d need for the full effect can add up shortly.

And you’ll nonetheless want to determine easy methods to add a plasma wand: Hasbro’s $125 version is bought individually.

It additionally could possibly be fairly a wait: this crowdfunded toy / prop isn’t scheduled to ship until spring 2023. You’ve acquired till December twelfth of this yr to determine if you’re in — with these HasLab merchandise, the corporate is simply promising a single manufacturing run. I nonetheless surprise if I made the proper alternative skipping the amazing $350 The Mandalorian Razor Crest, although the Lego model’s not dangerous.

Like I recently said, there’s by no means been a greater time to be a grown-up child.
