I recently ordered some Booster frames from Kris - overall excellent workmanship, clear communication, and quick delivery.

Thanks, chief!

Thanks for the info! I'm having problems finding these smaller socket head bolts at the local Lowes so looks like a trip to Fastenal is in the future. I usually get my 4-40 bolts at Ace hardware (should you have any in your area). You'll need a total of six 4-40 bolts for both the pack and thrower.

The kid does say "a couple of wavy lines", and there are technically three wavy lines on the card, so he's still wrong...

Some of the packs had different lengths for the Booster Tube. For example, on the Venkman Hero pack, the tube only extends about 1/8" past the top of the EDA, whereas the Spengler and Zeddemore Hero packs have the tube extend at least 1/4".

I think the film actually takes place in 1983, so that works out perfectly. I'm not aware of anything that states that intention. I believe "1984" is visible on at least one of the newspaper covers in the montage (the Globe cover seems the best source). You're probably right. I'm not sure...

Easy way to start would be to know i.e. How many hero packs there were on GB1 and where they are now. There were five Hero packs built for GB1, and their current whereabouts are as follows: Venkman Hero : Sony Prop Archives Stantz Hero : Private Collection in UK Spengler Hero : Private Collection Z...

This car is starting to grow on me. Granted, it does have a few glaring design flaws, but once we see it in proper action within the context of this new universe, I think it will work. After all, they probably don't start off with a lot of money, so naturally their first vehicle will look a bit junk...

If the hospital visit was just shameless PR for the film, they would have worn the jumpsuits with the GB arm patches. They were clearly shooting some early scenes for the film and took time out of what is probably a very tight location schedule to bring some people a little joy during their convales...

Considering that their uniforms are missing the arm and name patches, I'm guessing these are prototype packs. They kind of have a slight RGB vibe.

The semi-hero packs technically do have the HGA label; it's just cast in to the resin HGA. Upon close inspection, you can still make out the text on the label (silicone can even pick up that level of detail).

There's also the GB1 stunt gizmo, which is pretty similar to its GB2 counterpart. I'm not sure why so many people panic over the belt gizmo; it's more or less just a flat board with some tubes and raised squares shoved into a tape measure holder.

I'm guessing that he makes his own uniform so he can join the rest of the team. It kind of has a GB2 Louis vibe, as if he's training to be the "fifth Ghostbuster". It would also explain the crudely painted logo on the motorcycle - Kevin's attempt to have his own "Ecto".

How close to the super hero pack are you going for? As there are a few neat details I think would be fun to replicate... A few other possible details... - Remove the pie-chart to the right of the bargraph. - Paint over the silver DANGER sticker that should go between the gun discs. - Peel off or pa...

Most people replace the cast-in N-filters on their shells so they can have an accurate aluminum version instead. As for attachment, the N-filters had a bracket on the inside of the tube that was riveted to the shell.
