Interesting; you don't really see people making replicas of the toys, particularly the prototypes. Nice work!

Thanks, everyone! I do a lot of hand-sewing for my other costuming projects, so this wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I was expecting to be a lot more difficult, but the webbing is pretty easy to stitch through, so long as you're using a strong needle.

I bought some of the real hat lights from the GB store and I'm a bit baffled by how they work. It looks like I'll need to buy some bulbs to fit in the socket but not sure which ones. But also I'm stumped on how they connect to a power source. I got a GB wand light kit coming but even looking at the...

This was a secret project that Julz and I had been working on over the past few months. We started off by analyzing some of the super straps from the GB2 Hero packs (mainly the Venkman Hero) and sourcing the appropriate materials. The first task was to remove the original LC-1 padding from the strap...

They also used Legris tubing.


The Venkman Hero pack also had Nycoil 4mm tubing on the Ion Arm.

Looks like you're off to a good start. :)

For the backing, you can also use a white or grey 3" polypropylene. The Spengler belt just had regular interfacing, but the Venkman belt was backed in a light grey nylon.

The Omni pack is the only Hero pack that's currently unaccounted for - the other four packs are either in Sony's archives or in private collections.

What do you use for actually sticking your template to your actual leather holster? Velcro possibly I just have it wedged in between the two spots where the band connects to the backing; just make sure you make your board a little wide so it will sit snugly inside the holster.

Maybe a dumb question, but what colour nylon webbing are the non black GB2 fobs? Is it a white or a greyish? I can't tell from the photo and when I look to buy some, I can find white but not a light grey. I've found silver, is that it? I used the silver grey that Strapworks offers for my set of fob...

I'm checking to see if anyone has a clearer shot of the ribbon cable twist. In the above screen caps, it looks pretty severe coming off the cyclotron, but it's still pretty muddled and hard to see. Sadly, that's the best there is; Julz and I have spent hours pouring over 4K screencaps, and that's t...

You could always use a zip-tie on the mouth of the connector to hold the hose tighter, just like they did for the LA shooting of GB1.

You would think that they'd need a little more protection than mere rubber gloves, considering the extremely dangerous nature of the Proton Packs. Kind of like handling radioactive waste with oven mitts... :)

Yeah, the Super Hero pack was the only one in GB1 to have the hex fitting on the Ion Arm body instead of the cap. The Spengler and Stantz packs were the only Hero packs that retained the square fitting on the end cap for GB2.

I will absolutely see this film (should it actually go into production) in uniform on the opening day. I think everyone just needs to go into it with an open mind. If it's bad, no big deal; the film gets forgotten and ends up in the Dollar DVD bin. Should it be really good, then we could have a wort...

Some of the Hero packs in GB1 and GB2 either have the square fitting on the end cap or the hex fitting on the ion arm body, so the version you have is technically accurate to either film. :)

It's been a while since I've updated this thread, but I recently made a rough version of the black and white Burroughs label that appears both inside the car and at several points on the roof rack (as well as the containment unit in GB1). So far this is what I've come up with. http://i1167.photobuck...

Do we know the history of the packs actual design conception? It looks inspired by camera and lighting parts to some extent. Was something mocked up using found parts, and then worked on and developed by the prop designers to make it into what we know today ? I've always thought that the Bumper gre...

Here's a rough version of the Burroughs label I made today. It still needs some work, mostly with the text placement, but it's a start.

They seem to be using the aftermarket/Rothco LC-1 design as reference for the ALICE frames, mainly with the color, upper webbing connection, and waist strap buckle.

Awesome, thank you....it looks to be a thinner version of the one on Ray's pack (Sony lobby) any one have any thought(s) on that.. The "weld" on Ray's semi-hero pack is identical to the Venkman hero, since all of the GB2 semi-hero packs were cast from the original Venkman pack. Of course,...
