Perhaps the pack attached to the chair is Egon's, added after his passing with the remaining packs being attached to a shorter gurney?

Just pure speculation.
LOL! Would that be fitting or what? I am glad you said something because I was thinking the same thing. I mean I am really curious how many Old Proton Packs have survived these 31 years. It sure is fun to think about. I am really hoping that that pack truly is Egon's. It would be like he is still a big part of the action even if he is absent. Even know this is pure speculation I think you could be on to something. :) :) :)

It looks like it was a modification made a long time ago, given the weathering.
There appears to be a void right behind the front passenger seat that the pack would nest in to if the chair spins 180 degrees. Think the seat folds back in so it faces the to rear of the car? Might explain some of the reconfiguration of the pack -- putting the ion arm lower would help it fit under the slope of the front seat.

Also, looks like they've got three seats in the back now.

Hm. Y'know, just for the sake of discussion. In the two movies, did we ever see the rear passenger side door open? When the came to and/or left the Shandor building? Arriving at the Manhattan Museum of Art?

I recall the front driver door, passenger door, and the back were opened in scenes. If we haven't, then perhaps there's the chance it's always opened suicide style and the swing out chair could have always existed.

As Coover says, the door handle placement on the exterior of the ‘84 model Ecto makes it very unlikely, unless we accept that it was only ever meant to open from the inside.

EDIT: Double checking the new photos I see the handle has moved on the exterior of the new model, so I would think it likely a post ‘89 modification.

At this point we've seen the "new" Ecto a million times over from every angle and yet I still can't see enough pictures.

Hadn't really noticed these until right now, but...
What are the three objects between the house and the barn?

Are those just short grain silos or something more interesting?

Kinda reminds me of how Audouy used a collapsed water tower in Logan. Seemed like ambient set dressing but wound up serving a purpose.

Yes when Peter steps out and says hello New York you can see the right back door start to open. :) :) :)

Kinda looks likes the thrower can be disconnected from the line to the pack.
The split loom tube seems to just be hanging out in those recent photos.

FYI, the woman dressed as Egon from the Calgary GB is named Candace Schneider, very active on fb, very nice person.

Also, this wasn't filming, Twitter seems to indicate the production actually brought it to a Comic-Con, I believe in Drumheller, simply because they were already up there, as a fun little treat for attendees.

So that Summerville Ghostbusters account might be legit.
The placement of the blue tube across the crank generator nob and the ring around the split loom tube seem to match the placement on the new car seat pack we saw yesterday.

Yeah, that’s pretty close, isn’t it?

The ion knob seen on Summerville Ghostbusters page always looked too new to me knowing just how much effort they (the film makers) were putting into aging.

as I said before
Any regular viewer of Antiques Roadshow will tell you one of the easiest ways to spot a fake is how it's aged. Even the best fakers with the best made replicas rarely get the aging process right.

My bad.

Hmmm... While it does appear to carry more weight than the photos before it... The account's going to have to work harder to convince me it's legit. Spoiling the little discovery of the Bacharach Sniffer, if it is a featured reference, seems a bit of a strike against the account being legit than a strike in its favour.

The newest Pack preview snapshot might be legitimate, but it's also the freshest photo on the account's page, and it's not the hardest thing to fake seeing as the photo of Wrecto's Pack mod has been doing the rounds the last few days.


Talking about the Pack, something I hadn't properly spotted until now, but it looks like it has the older-style rainbow ribbon cable, rather than the less colourful 1988/89 replacement. :)

I'm usually pretty skeptical myself. Perhaps this is someone going to extraordinary effort to fake the photos. Certainly nothing is conclusive until we have more information.

But we just saw close-up pics of the seat-mounted proton pack yesterday. Kind of nuts that think that within 24 hours, someone has nothing better to do than dummy up pics to impress news with. But stranger things have happened.

That said...
If they are fake, someone is going to a hell of a lot of effort and working quickly to duplicate the ion arm and the hexagonal hole pattern on the pack cage.

Isn't it possible that someone snapped photos on set weeks back and the weathering/dust has changed from use in production?

I will say that it appears there's a zip tie holding the red tubing to the metal bar in the photo we saw yesterday that seems to be absent in the Summerville Insta account.

The last two photos might be real but the ion knob they show in the newest photo is far more aged than the previous one indicating that at least the earlier ones were fake.

For all we know, they were at the con where Wreckto appeared and simply took photos of the real thing to try and bolster their scam IG.
