Back in 2021 we reported that a number of items from Ghostbusters: Answer The Call, including lighting-up hero Proton Pack props, were set to go under the hammer by auction house Prop Store, only for the lots to be withdrawn from the auction at short notice.

Two years later, one of those lots, one of the aforementioned-light up hero Proton Packs is scheduled to appear in Prop Store's upcoming Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction: Los Angeles 2023 event, scheduled for the 28th-30th of June.

As seen with past auctions by Prop Store, these events prevent a fantastic opportunity to gather reference images of the props and a closer look at their construction through their catalogue listings, and in the instances where Prop Store has arranged a public exhibition of some of the items before they're sold.

In the 2021 auction, this hero Proton Pack prop was listed with a estimate of £8,000 - £12,000, so it'll be interesting to see if the new listing features a similar, or different estimate.

In related news, a recent auction by Hero Props featured a screen-used Ecto-1 license plate from Ghostbusters: Answer The Call, which sold for $3,250, with proceeds going to "We Care for Kylie", a charity drive in aid of Kylie Armstrong, daughter of Hero Props co-owner Tiana Armstrong, who is battling Stage IV cancer.

The triangular poison sticker on the side and residue of a square sticker on the front of the Radioisotope Check Source box suggests this is one of Patty's hero packs.

Ah, yeah, I didn't notice the residue. Apparently this isn't the only 2016 Pack being sold, so I'm hoping this gives us really detailed photos, as I'd love to make a decent replica.

Yes, Prop Store has a lot of great photos for the packs and other props they're selling.
