Hello all,

Here are my custom "Ghostbusters-Inspired" props. Full disclaimer: I have this weird thing where I like to make my own versions of said something. So, forewarned, they're different. ;)

I used lightsaber and blaster effects modules by Plecterlabs, which means they all have lights and sound, so check out the videos to see them in action.

Custom PKE Meter

- aluminium body
- PlecterLabs Crystal Focus version 9 with custom sounds
- Adafruit CPX running sound meter
- various LEDs

*The "motion tracker" sounds were added because the whole thing kind of reminded me of a motion tracker from Aliens...


Custom Proton Pack with integrated trap, plasma tube and fiber optic cable

- Plywood, MDF, EVA foam, sintra, aluminium & brass bits
- PlecterLabs Blaster Core and two Crystal Focus v9s
- 12v 18" Plasma tube
- 12mm & 3mm fiber optic
- various LEDs and bargraphs
- 12v solenoid 10mm-throw

*Also kind of inspired by Aliens universe, although the aesthetic is a little lacking. I did, however add some Weyland-Yutani stickers in subtle places.


I'm just a part time hobbyist, so I don't do commission work. sorry :(

Thanks guys! Yeah, as much as I wanted an Aliens-universe thing, I'm kinda digging the fallout thing. I may have to come up with some fallout sounds.

Here's some more descriptive talk of the pack and stuff... like my thought process, different gun sounds, me being an idiot, blah blah. I explain the trap mechanism towards the end. The other gun sounds are Ice Projector, which is a freeze gun-type thing and M-41A (pulse rifle); they came from past projects.

Thanks. There's actually a few scattered about. In addition to the one under the trap, there's one hidden between the upper and lower sections, a full Weyland/Yutani logo on the bottom, and a Colonial Marines on the front of the mother board.

Those are some really cool designs that look at home in either universe. There's tons of stuff I liked, but one thing that sticks out is your pack design, specifically the cyclotron being to one side rather than in the center. It's a very neat design that still looks the part but is also really unique and fun.

Thanks man! :love:

Here's one last one. I diverted a little towards the Fallout "post-apocalyptic wasteland" aesthetic this time, just because of the already-beat-to-crap look of everything.

Plus, tell me a post-nuclear-war Fallout isn't the most target-rich environment for a Ghostbuster, eh? :lol:

Lol! Moderate to low... but mostly because I had a few weeks of weird shifts at work, more down time.

Also, All-Con is coming up, and I wanted to be ready. Although I think I may have misjudged my timeline. :-P
