Re: My first uniform

Always sew your patches (and leg hose connector) on. Not only is it screen-accurate, but will be infinitely more durable than any kind of adhesive.

Re: Anyone game for a collaborative set of ATC pack plans?

About a year ago I drew some plans for the thrower (which need to be slightly revised) and ended up with a couple of 3-D printed prototypes.

Well, there’s no photographic evidence in either films or production stills to prove that Harold Ramis ever wore it. Sony has been wrong before about some of the details regarding the prop assets in their collection. They might very well be conflating this pack with the broken GB2 Spengler semi-hero...

That is not the Spengler Hero Pack. There’s no evidence of Harold Ramis ever having worn that particular pack.

The Super Hero Pack was briefly used in the rooftop scenes by both Bill and Ernie in GB1. Louis later wears this pack for a few of the FX shots from the deleted Slimer sequence in GB2.

The light next to the ear button on the thrower never does. In order to turn the orange hat light on, the vent light switch needs to be ON while the ACTIVATE switch is off. Press the red momentary push-button on the barrel ear to toggle the orange hat light on/off (then you can turn the rest of the...

Hello, everyone! After the debacle with Photobucket in which many of us lost the image hosting in our build threads, I decided to switch over to imgur, which is a far superior site.

I completely forgot about those labels, what with the Photobucket debacle and all. I recently uploaded everything to imgur, which is a much better system.

Ten feet seems to be the average cord length based on some of the screen-used props. You can always shorten it a bit if it seems like you have too much; I think that my trap cord is at about 9.5'.

The Hero packs had two 6-32 allen bolts threaded from the inside of the the pack, thus sitting flush with the surface of the male portion of the v-hook. You can also use counter-sunk flat-head machine bolts like on the GB2 retrofit Venkman Hero or any of the Semi-Hero packs. https://i.imgur.com/XJEx...

The broken links have all been fixed. Since Photobucket has become a rather dated photo-sharing site, I've found imgur to have a much better interface.

The actual props were custom built by Columbia's prop house back in 1984. The original Hero packs for GB1 were actually built by Boss Film Studios. If I correctly recall the interview with the designer, Stephen Dane, they only had six weeks to get everything (packs, traps, and car) designed, built,...

For my packs, I tend to go for what I call "idealized production-accurate". For example, I incorporate a lot of the small and unusual details that are inherent in the Hero packs, such as the odd shell texturing, unpainted swatches on the motherboard for GB2, wooden block spacers for GB1, w...

I've had great success dyeing white cotton web belts with the pearl-grey RIT dye. After the dye bath (which shouldn't be more than five minutes), throw the belt in the washing machine for a quick wash, and you'll end up with a very accurate light grey.

This seems to be the same jumpsuit that is prominently featured on the reference page for the uniform; it's nice to have some higher-resolution shots of it.

The ALICE frame and webbing alone will usually cost at least $30-40. Even the time and labour involved in building a pack, even a junk pack, is worth more than $100.

You could always try building a pack out of foam-core, PVC, and found household items.

I don't think the light on the pedal is ever shown lit. Just because it's on there doesn't necessarily mean that it was intended to function - the sunken hat light on the thrower is another example of a non-functioning light.

The motherboard should really be the last thing that you build. Just build the pack, and use that to trace your motherboard.

Wow. For a moment, I thought that last image was a photo of someone sitting in the Sony car.

The throwers appear to have small clicker wheels that make the streams spin, very reminiscent of the old Kenner figures.

The only throwers that didn't have the green lever were the stunt packs and semi-hero packs from GB2.

The above scene with the Second Doctor is one of the most beautiful moments in the entire series.

But now to bring the first Doctor back to use him as they please is terrible.


Multi-Doctor stories have been a staple of the series since "The Three Doctors" in 1972/73.
