Starting with these behind the scenes photos of the OGs that were shared on Twitter this week:
Photo by Mike Waclo:
Some things I noticed:
* The leg hoses in these photos appears to be clear rather than yellow. There seems to be a spare hose on the table next to Ernie which also appears to be clear. The connector looks similar on the OGs, although in the photo Mike shared of Phoebe/Egon's uniform at the Hollywood Museum, it does look to have a slightly different shape.
* I know there has always been a debate about the colour of the original pistol belts, but they certainly look grey here (possibly dyed from white) and appear to match the colour of the elbow pads.
* The no-ghost patch is not an idealised version and maintains the wonky look of the originals. Would be interesting to know if each one is slightly different, or if they settled on one style.
* Belt Gizmos - it's hard to see them here, but from seeing them briefly in the movie they really resembled Spongeface's replicas to me. I have spent way too much time studying every boring detail of the gizmo props for my own kits, and from the brief flashes I saw in the movie, they looked pretty solid and not thrown together like the old stunt boards. I could be wrong of course, but I have heard the production used some BenOfKent props as background pieces in the farmhouse, so it's not out of the question that they used some of Doug's kits too. Maybe just a theory, but that really would be unbelievable to see a fan-produced prop worn by Bill, Dan and Ernie in the actual movie! I know Adam Savage built one during lockdown and we know how close he has been to this production. Maybe Doug can clear this up?
Anything else anyone has noticed so far?
