The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

looks really nice actually. The quality is excellent for the money. I don't like the brown grip or the brown handle wrapping as it looks a bit plasticky but other than that all good.

I built my pack from a spirit haloween pack and when i was done I didnt wanna work on anything for a long time.
would have been faster to use a kit. The spirit ghost trap looks good to me, the one i saw at walmart seemed a clunky.
The 3D printed one that Adam Savage reviewed looks good. I also have a totally scratch built one thats about 25% done,
only reason id finish it at this point is for bragging rights, its all bondo and cardboard. Something about ghostbusters stuff is theres no
end to how much detail and work you can put into it, its hard to feel comfortable stopping and call it finished. It's also hard to start a new build knowing how its gonna take 3 times longer then your highest estimate.

Mine is a Benofkent kit. Fantastic quality but i had some real problems with missing parts. All sorted in the end though. I would like to replace some of the cast parts with proper metal parts but it can become a money pit. Built it over last Christmas and had a load of fun with it. Apart from the electronics. Dear lord i hate electronics

I took some bad pictures of this Spirit pack that I made for my girls B-day. I'm running low on zip ties so I dont wanna cut it open, but I will if anyone wants to see that rats nest of wires. . Sodering the arduino and each individual LED and having NO CLUE about any of that stuff made it a lot more fun. I used one specific youtube video to do the Arduino sketch and I can link to that.
I printed the correct hangers for the wand and need to grab a few things like the acrylic pipe for the wand end.
