HalloweenCostumes.com has posted an update to its website featuring listings for a new Premium Ghostbusters costume, with versions designed for adults and children.

The premium costume appears to include the following*:
•Jumpsuit - A fair reproduction of the Nomex flightsuit, minus the pocket on the left arm.
•Velcro-fastened elbow pads
•Embroidered logo patch
•Embroidered nametag - with a selection of the four Ghostbusters available.
•Webbing belt
•Proton Pack with detachable Proton Gun.

The costume is similar to the Grand Heritage costume sold by Rubies two years ago, however the Proton Pack has been simplified compared to the earlier effort, whilst the rest of the costume itself has been expanded upon - featuring more elements to recreate the iconic look.

The adult costume is marketed to retail at $99.99 (£88.99), the child's costume is marketed to retail at $79.99**, a substantial saving on the Grand Heritage's current $299.99 pricetag.

In addition to being marketed towards the United States market, the costume will also be available to the United Kingdom via HalloweenCostumes.co.uk

Visit The Topic to see additional, higher-resolution photos.

*Final details of the accessories included with the costume will be amended upon the release of further information from HalloweenCostumes.com
**The UK site for HalloweenCostumes didn't have a listing for the children's costume at the time of writing.

...all that nice work on the uniform and they churn out a proton pack like that?! Someone in the design/production department came up with that look and everybody was okay with it?!

While a more three-dimensional Proton Pack was offered with the previous version of this costume that was sold, it retailed for $200 more than the new suit... So while it's not a fantastic looking Pack, it is, as Larry observed, better than the inflatable one. There may have also been a contractual limitation, given Spirit is producing 3D Proton packs.
