About Ghostbusters Proton Pack Toy
Plant your feet, clear your mind, and whatever you do, do not cross the streams or imagine the form of the destroyer. A "Ghostbusters" toy proton pack is a replica of those worn in the films "Ghostbusters" and "Ghostbusters II" by the spook-vanquishing heroes. The packs are connected by insulated cords to the tube-like neutrino wands used in the films to subdue and capture ghosts with beams of crackling energy. With one of these strapped on your back and the right pair of ratty coveralls, you can pull off a convincing "Ghostbusters" costume as Venkman, Egon, Ray, or Winston. The proton pack itself looks something like a ruggedized plastic tire combined with a backpack, and it has a perfect pseudoscientific heft to it, accentuated by false dials, readouts, and other doohickeys that make it look like a genuine piece of handmade ghost-hunting technology designed to trap the restless spirits of the dead. You can find a "Ghostbusters" toy proton pack among the vast inventory of movie memorabilia and costume supplies on eBay.
