1:1 Ghostbusters Proton Pack Replica Has Huge Price Drop

After several delays, HalloweenCostumes.com‘s 1:1 Ghostbusters Proton Pack finally arrived, and … it’s already discounted. Yup, the original $499.99 price tag has been slashed by $200.

Although $299.99 is a steal for a 1:1 pack, you still make several concessions. Even though the original price put it higher than Hasbro’s replica, it had far fewer features. Some details are missing, and the neutrino wand does not light up. The only illumination you get on the proton pack is the four cyclotron lights.

Even then, the light effect isn’t screen-accurate or even decent. If you check out Ghostbusters News’s video review, you can see something off with how the pack looks. The Spirit Halloween replica is far better and less expensive ($249.99).

If you’re interested in picking one up for this Halloween, here are some details on the replica:

  • Molded plastic replica proton pack
  • Sturdy, length-adjustable padded shoulder straps
  • Heavy duty padded waist strap fastens w/ plastic parachute buckle
  • Neutron wand is connected to pack by flexible plastic tubing
  • Knobs on wand fit into slot on side of pack to store when not in use
  • When activated by push button on wand grip, pack lights up and makes movie realistic sounds
  • Requires 2 AAA batteries, not included
  • Phillips-head screwdriver (not included) required to open battery compartment
  • Officially licensed

One of the best aspects of the HalloweenCostumes.com pack is that it comes with something similar to an ALICE frame already connected. The Hasbro and Spirit ones did not come with this, although Hasbro had the foresight to include mounting holes and screws to add one.
