Hey peeps. I hope this isn't going to be frowned upon as I am sure that some of this is from personal collections, I know I saw Sean Bishop's name on a few things, but I made the hour or so drive from my house down to Hollywood today to the Hollywood Museum to check out the Ghostbusters exhibit and I just thought that some of these photos may be nice for those who live too far to come to see the museum themselves. For those who have the means to go and check it out, I will say that you will enjoy your time there. On top of that, the museum staff was absolutely AWESOME!

Thnx for sharing! Funny they labeled a Matty PKE a GB2 "Ghost Detector"! So what is genuine and what is replica in the exhibition? Are the Afterlife props the real deal?

From the looks of things, I think all of the Afterlife stuff was real. Everything else looked like it was contributed by fans. One of the packs was definitely an Anovos... You could see the "Anovos" stamps on the booster tube ladder, in place of the "Ticonderoga" marks on the pencils. And a lot of the uniforms were TruSpec, with accessories pieced together from the Primer Magazine instructions... Even the same dollar store calculator and pet leashes in place of the gizmo and belt fobs.

I thought something looked odd about those packs and it is funny that the Anovos thing went right past me. The main thing that stood out as odd to me about the packs was the fact that they looked too "clean" and the bumpy, cast-iron-like texture was missing from the areas that it should be.
I think the exhibit is more centered around the Afterlife props, which I believe are real. The Afterlife props are also in their own display case, separate from the other cases.

Awesome pics, thanks for sharing!
You know, that was one thing that bugged me too, lol. It bugged me just like how Spirit Halloween still hasn't figured out that the proton gun is upside down on their box art, lol.

It looks wrong but if you think about it with the way the wrist is its in the correct position for the holder to use it. Would look odd if it was facing outwards.

It's interesting that the neutrona wand barrel is 2 slightly different diamaters, the frosted sections being narrower than the clear sections. Would take a few mins to do with a dremel but would be tricky as well. One of the OG wands has a sunken top white hat light and the other a normally installed one, plus the banjos on one seem to be fitted with wider red tubing in the brass then thinner diamater tubing for the long tube.

Oh man, I would love to find this pic in a digital copy.

I've been curious what that handheld computer is for a while. You can glimpse it in a deleted scene on the Electronic Press Kit.

Looks like a Phillips PX-2000, you can just make out the acoustic coupler on the underside in the photo: LINK

Between a number of Packs having been auctioned off over the years, and others being kept in the Sony archives, the "classic" packs seen in Ghostbusters: Afterlife were new builds for the film, the clearest indications are the red Cylotron lights rotating in similar fashion to the Spengler Pack, and apparently the trigger tips all having the same pronounced bend to them.

As far as I think we're aware a Matty PKE wasn't used in the movie. The one in the Museum exhibit is a stand-in for the screen-used original/s from 1984, which are in private ownership.

Thanks. Yeah I meant in the museum. The movie used an entirely different PKE meter to the Matty. As far as I could tell the movie one had:

Insane weathering
See through wings where the paint rubbed off
Variable kelvin white wing lights
Pop out extendible wings
An additional graph function on the middle red light switch position
Finger notches on the left side of the grip
