@GhostLabs: Be careful - making replica props can become addictive!

To be honest, I can see how it could get to be so -- I'd love to see some of these replica's "in the flesh" sometime

Be careful - making replica props can become addictive!

I don't make the full packs for anyone but myself - I am still just learning about all of the incredible building and construction process, but have built a lot of electronics that go into other enthusiasts' packs.

A couple of great sites for related items:

www.mattycolletor.com for Mattel made items for adults (I think), They have offered PKE Meters, a Ghost Trap and also Ecto Goggles with video animations you see through the lens - a Head-Up-Display?!

www.gbfans.com for a community of Ghostbuster enthusiasts that offers lots of info, technical support and a wide array of items that can be purchased or comissioned to build.

@Caleb: From the sound of it, Doug has made a pile of them. I wonder if they're for sale somewhere.

Someone almost commissioned me to make one once, but the effort that would have gone into making it accurate to the level he wanted would have been cost prohibitive.

I want one of those proton packs, but I don't want to make one of my own because I don't have enough time (sad face)
