Leaving this here as well as in the Firehouse thread. FYI, you don't (shouldn't?) need to be a Hasbro Pulse premium member to watch the stream. Sometimes Hasbro can be confusing if this is for members only or not, but I think this is just relevant for the different preorder slots. If i'm wrong the link to the video gets shared quickly usually.

cool. Man I hope it has some sort of functionality with the pack. Some interaction somehow? I duno how thatd work

I thought for sure they do a remote controlled trap like the movie.


So this will like the proton pack where it has to meet order requirements before entering production?

I duno. I have a Matty PKE meter that I like. But that Trap looks pretty spiffy.

I do wish they’d partner up with a Polaroid company and do some Ecto goggles like in GBA. Those would sell like hotcakes. Put a blu tooth wireless chip in. Have it connect to your iPhone.

Make a legit pair of Ecto goggles that can track motion, do night vision, IR. It would cost a pretty penny but that’d be like a legit working pair of Ectogoggles. Minus the ghost part

It would be cool if the PKE meter could actually catch signals of some kind. Like a wifi or FM radio signal. I know I’m living in fantasy land but that would be neat. It’s a functional PKe meter that doesn’t measure ghost activity but can measure wifi signal intensity or radio signal strength. Just to give it some functionality. God I wish I was smart enough to be an engineer cause I’m sure that could be done. But Hasbro wouldn’t make it into a 300 dollar collectible.


Has anyone heard of Hacksmith? I keep hoping they tackle something Ghostbusters related. Obviously a proton pack is out of the question but then again, I would’ve said so is a lightsaber… but they made one. They made a working Aliens Power lifter Suit. An Iron Man helmet with HUD, a back to the future 2 hoverboard that actually hovers. They made Spider-Man web shooters that work. Pretty crazy stuff. But I’m hoping for some sort of proton pack that’s just like an amiable Tesla coil gun

The wheels on that trap look a little high...or is that how it was in Afterlife? The PKE is definitly the Afterlife upgrades. theres more shots on facebook one stretch goal for the PKE is that it can actually react to EMF. And it has taser mode.

Where on facebook are these pictures? I looked at the Hasbro Pulse fb page and didn't see anything.

Looks like you'll be able to move the relay to the rear of that box like it is in Afterlife. I'll have to look again, but I think the stock trap had oversized wheels... though, let's be honest, if that's the only inaccuracy, that's a simple fix.

Is Zavvi going to handle the European distribution again?
No, by now Hasbro Pulse is available EU wide so that's your way to get it. At 350€. Plus 5€ shipping if you're not a premium member (but you can get a code for free shipping by subscribing to their newsletter).

https://eu.hasbropulse.com/collections/haslab

Should be live at 10pm.

The arms on the PKE look a little fat...but the fact that it can also do the taser mode kind of makes up for it.

Also cool that the section on the top of the body lights up

Thank you so much for the link. I didn't get it via e-mail yet (as a Haslab member)

Let's go and get this backed ASAP! We can do it!

Backed two. Very disappointed it's a Haslab. I mean, Afterlife came out in 2021, they are based on the Afterlife versions but will ship Dec 2024. Ouch. But...they look great. And now that the features of both are listed on the site, that looks promising. Especially curious about the trap and it's changeable modes between GB1, GB2 and Afterlife.
#4987020
I'm definitely ordering two. Depending on funds in early Dec., might spring for a third. It does worry me a little that we need 18,000 backers for all three stretch goal unlocks. I think when it was all said and done, the proton pack had a little over 19,000. So it might be cutting it really close.
