I honestly don't see this selling well based on those prices. It's a fun novelty, but with the two-dimensional ones selling for a fraction of the cost, there's no contest.

I'm having trouble with what my brain is trying to decipher here. It looks like a spirit halloween electronic proton pack from the front...with backpack straps?

More than just the straps. View it more as a regular backpack with the Spirit Halloween Proton Pack attached to it, with part of the backpack partially fed into the Proton Pack's plastic shell.

This looks amazing, since I missed out the Spirt Halloween Proton Pack last year I pre-ordered this. Looking forward to using for cosplay, since I do not have the skills needed to make a screen accurate Proton Pack.

Just so you're aware, Spirit should have new stock of the standard Pack for this year.

I cant justify buying this until I've finished upgrading my last pack. I do like the idea of having a lap top sleeve to set up an easy sound system without having to install a bunch of electronics.

If someone were really creative they could set up a 3dfx projector to mimic proton stream's or project slimer and other ghosts?

It's not impossible, but it's not the least bit practical with today's current technology.

@ Kingpin, thanks for the heads up.

Between this new backpack and the next issue of the IDW comic book I am really excited for September. Also I defiantly plan on getting one of the new Spirt Halloween Ghost Traps as well, since I currently do not a have Ghost Trap for cosplaying.

I just got an email from Spencer's with an ADDITIONAL 20% off for all backpacks this weekend only.

The email says "Promo code BACKPACKS18E"

The website says "Promo code: BACKPACKS18" without the E on the end.

Not sure which is the typo, might want to try both if there's a bug in the system.
