GHOSTBUSTERS (1984) / GHOSTBUSTERS II (1989)
A radio-controlled hero ghost trap and pedal from Ivan Reitman’s supernatural comedy Ghostbusters and its sequel Ghostbusters II. The Ghostbusters — Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis), and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) — used traps to capture ghouls haunting New York. A small number of electronic trap props were made for the production by Academy Award®-nominated special effects supervisor Chuck Gaspar, and reused in the second production. This piece comes with a letter of authenticity from producer Michael C. Gross.The trap consists of a black aluminum box with a handle and four wheels, an illuminating red plastic light, an illuminating electronic charging meter, a yellow plastic light, and two doors with yellow striped caution tape applied on top. When charged, the trap doors open to reveal five 9V batteries in a battery pack, an array of four small light bulbs, and circuitry connecting the doors to the batteries.The original plastic and metal Futaba® radio-control system used to operate the trap is labelled with numbers corresponding to the mechanism that each button controls. The trap has several pieces of functionality: the remote button labelled “5 DOOR” opens the striped hatch doors on top; the throttle labelled “3 BARGRAPH” operates the light bar graph at the top of the piece which illuminates up and down to confirm that the trap is filled up; the “6 FLASH” button initiates the internal strobe-light used for on-set interactive lighting effects when the trap opens; and the mechanism labelled “7 RED LIGHT FLASH” operates the red flashing light at the rear of the unit that signifies it is holding a ghost. The hydraulic foot pedal is made of steel and wood painted black, with red and yellow wires underneath. Also included is a plastic-and-steel cable that connects the trap and the pedal, and a red-and-black AC charging cord for the trap. The round silver bars on the side of the trap’s body were originally painted orange for the first film, and were stripped back to raw aluminium when the trap was reconditioned for the sequel. All pieces exhibit signs of use and wear, including scrapes and scuffs throughout, as well as chipped wood on the pedal. Operating instructions for the functional electronic components are also included.
