June. They use the first of the month for their tentative release dates of products. For instance, with the Spengler's Neutrona Wand, it was September 1, 2020 but Hasbro Pulse shifted many pre-orders to September 16, 2020.

Hello all,

Long-time Buster, first-time poster. I backed the pack from Hasbro Pulse and got my Spengler Wand and already started modding it based around what you all are doing, which I have to say you guys are thorough geniuses. Egon would be proud.

I don't know if it has been troubleshooted on this site yet, but I think I've discovered a way to keep the idle lights running on the wand (not the activation switch that enables the rumble motor). Both idle and and activated settings seem to shut down after about 30 seconds on non-use, but I found that if you turn on both primer switches on the right (again, activation switch is off) and periodically click in the "Intensify" button before the 30 seconds elapses you can keep the idle lights from shutting down. I tried taping the "Intensify" button down to see if that would make it stay on indefinitely, but the wand will still shutdown after 30 seconds because it does not register any activity on the "Intensify" button.

In summary, you could feasibly carry the wand on your belt with the lights on and just periodically tap the "Intensify" button to keep the lights on. Has there been a work-around already done, or is there a way to hotwire the lights to stay on (leaving the motor and hum off)?

Hey man, welcome and thanks for the tip - hadn't noticed this, but can confirm it works perfectly.
I'm sure it's a terrible, hacky idea, but could make a fairly simple timer circuit that closes the activate switch periodically.
Would need to replace replace the 3rd toggle with a DTDP; one channel wired as usual, the other to activate the timer, something like:

Has anyone seen this issue before with the light being stuck on after releasing the intensify button?



Update: I'm just going through Hasbro to get this replaced (hopefully they have some in stock yet). And Thank You Kingpin for fixing the Youtube code.

You can unscrew the bolts but the nuts fall out on the other side into the wand. You have to take it apart to retrieve the nuts.

Wait. How are they getting stock BEFORE the friggin actual Hasbro website?

Right now on the Hasbro website is says new wand shipments won’t start until NEXT DECEMBER.

It says 12/01/2022. I was hoping that meant January 12th but then I realized, no, it’s December. That’s insane.



Question. I’m still in the hospital so I can’t check mine but does anyone know if the Matty Wand came with a V Hook connector? I don’t remember if it did.

I have a Matty wand. Though it’s in the box. I prefer the look of it to the Spengler wand but I can’t remember if it had a connector for an eventual proton pack?

Yes the Matty wand does have a v-hook connector.
