So I found GBFANS by searching info on Proton Packs. Thanks to the creativity and skills of many prop builders, there are a lot of packs out there. Which made me want to make one too. Unfortunately, after getting to know the complexity of building one, I had to take a step back. Especially when it comes down to the lights and sounds. I will probably buy one of the Anovos kits just to get my feet wet.
After coming to terms with the fact that building a proton pack isn't that easy, I had an idea of having an annual Proton Pack Build Workshop, for members who don't have one yet. I layed down my idea here:

As fellow member bishopdonmiguel pointed out, the logistics would be a challenge. But it would be fantastic if it ever happened.
