I'm the lucky winner of the screen-used tripod traps from Ghostbusters II. As the title suggests, I plan to post some photos of these shortly (hopefully later today). For a while I was hesitant - the community was in the midst of a feud. I guess you could say that the reboot brought out the worst in people both for and against it, and I wasn't sure I wanted much to do with the GBFans community for a while. Thankfully, my best buddy Matt made me realize that there are still those of us here that have loved Ghostbusters for so long and have come here for so long and have made progress in our own endeavors by coming here for so long. I'll be posting photos for those of you who I am describing - I want you to see the traps and am happy to share my joy with you.
I will not be posting measurements, part numbers (of which I don't have yet anyway) or anything specific like that, so please don't ask in this thread or complain about it. If I have to deal with entitled ghostheads again over this matter then I will not post anything in here again. In this day and age there are many people who like to be spoon-fed information and at times I used to be one of these people. Figuring out the M56 smartgun from Aliens mostly on my own has made me realize that it's so much more fun when you don't have everything right in front of you to just assemble and you discover something big or find something really rare for it. If you're really sincerely looking to replicate the tripod traps for some reason then please feel free to PM me and maybe I can help you.
I will go through the photos I have and be back later. More photos will eventually come I'm sure, but for now I'm super busy with the Ecto-1 project and probably won't have much time to go and unpack them to take more photos for a few months. Stay tuned!
