First, how do we think the connection will be accessible?

Second, what do you plan on using it for?
I plan to bypass the rumble switch with it. So I can avoid opening the cyclotron.

The recently unlocked Minipufts are a redeco of these, right?

Shop Ghostbusters Plasma Series Mini-Pufts at Hasbro Pulse. Visit https://hasbropulse.com/products/ghostb ... mini-pufts for details.

First of all, that's a $27 value, which is pretty good.

Second, I thought people might want to know they could get some "pristine" Minipufts to go with their singed ones since the hands seem designed to grasp the proton pack cables and act as a cosplay accessory.

No.
Yes, but it's unlikely they'll do it again. If we would be at 20,000+ preorders already I could see them adding something else, question is what? You can always throw in a related figure to a project like the Razor crest, Sentinel or Rancor. But a full size replica? There's not much left in their Ghostbusters lineup (at least the one we know about) they could give us in a fifth tier.
If we can get to 20k Hasbro should do a belt gizmo.

Would be nice but a Belt Gizmo is a product they could sell on its own for a high price like maybe $150, so that would not be something they’d throw in as a stretch goal. We’d be more likely to get just a belt, without a gizmo 😆.

According to what I've been reading, the international sales through Zavvi (sp?) isn't being reported yet. If that's true, the backer count is higher than what we currently have. Also if that's true, we should have no issue reaching 15,000. Anyone else have any details on this?

While I know there are people who have happily paid such amounts or more for an accurate gizmo, it's so unknown to the general public that I'm not sure that any toy company could make a business case for a mass production at $150.

When you get an alice frame, make sure its the new version with the green belt clip. Seems they used the same one on the OG packs as well.

I agree, but I think they thought the same thing about the proton pack and that’s why it’s a HasLab crowdfunded thing. I’m sure 75% of the people who backed the proton pack would come back and get a belt gizmo, especially if they threw in lighting.

On that note has it been confirmed that the gizmos in afterlife have lights?
#4962073
Guys.

A friendly reminder that parts of the world including France, Russia, Norway, New Zealand and Australia (to name a few) have not gotten to see the movie yet. Please show a little consideration for your fellow fans in those parts of the globe by using the spoiler tags on spoiler images.

They don't feature any lights.

We’ll hit 13,000 easily. I think 15,000 is totally possible.

Maybe all the Rancor backers will move over to the proton pack when the Rancor fails lol.
#4962091
It's only been a few days since we hit 11k marshmallow tier and now we are over 36% towards the next tier.

A few things.

1.Haslabs typically have a huge run up at the end.

2.If rancor fails, all of a sudden you have 4,750ish people who know how to back a haslab that suddenly have an extra $350 in their pocket that I'm sure are very aware of the pack.

3. Three are at least two 3rd party companies taking orders for the Europe and Australia. Not sure when those orders are counted.

4. The movie is still doing well in theaters. If you google "proton pack" the haslab is one of the first results. We are entering gift buying season, sure a few will get picked up as gifts for people.

13k is a slam dunk, 15k is very likely.
#4962110
You could be right. As of this moment, the G.I. Joe Skystriker is only 58% funded, and the Rancor monster barely 53% funded just to be produced, with less than 8 and 7 days left to go in each crowdfunding period, respectively. It's not looking good for either of those, but if Haslab products see a surge at the end of the funding period, then there is possibly at least a little hope for those who want those collectibles. It bodes well for the proton pack in either case, where as it stands at this writing (with over 12 days left in the funding period) the class 3 tier (Egon's notebook) is at 91% funded to its funding goal, with class 4 (the display stand) 79% similarly such . . .

@VERMINAARD510 has been applying some Excel wizardry to the Haslab using a combination of daily avg vs. peak day numbers to do a projection. It's been a couple days since that chart has been updated so maybe they'll post an update the next time they swing by,

bobafett321 wrote: November 30th, 2021, 7:30 am I wouldn't count on the Rancor or GI Joe backers to jump on the pack if their haslabs fail. Many of those individuals are either dedicated to their franchises or are collectors of action figures.
Correct. If by chance the proton pack fell through, I'm not going to roll $400 over to another franchise just because. I even like the Rancor, but it's massively overpriced for what it is.

The big fat green buckles were for the OGs packs, assuming they've been keeping them upgraded. The Spengler pack has a smaller buckle, someone said it was a Fox LC-1 Alice Frame which makes sense since the packs in the original films had a thinner buckle.

When you say Spengler pack do you mean afterlife pack? If so it’s actually a big buckle
