Comments about Spirit Halloween Light-Up Deluxe Replica Proton Pack - Ghostbusters:
Fun to mod. Make it authentic or add your own ghostbusting flare to it. From paint to even more light effects, even a better sound board. It is very cool as is, the it has endless potential.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this for my son's 4th birthday and lets just say I regretted buying it as soon as he pulled it out of the box. It wasn't as well put together as I had hoped and broke 8min after opening, but it did light up.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Vinings, GA
I ended up buying a modified version, but it still used the Spirit pack. It is fragile, but what a neat toy.
Overall great product
from Lakeport, Ca
Overall great design. Thoroughly pleased. It looks near identical and has many intricate details that others lacked. The wand broke in half on the big day but some jb weld fixed that up. And the big thing here is the inside is hollow leaving plenty of space to make improvents to functionality.
Most screen accurate pack for the money.
This pack is nice looking and the lights and sounds set it apart from other companies' packs. It is about 80% scale but the wand is only about 60%. It looks nice hanging from the pack but it feels very small in the hand. The wand also has a joint that is fragile and breaks easily. The button to activate the sounds is located in the wrong spot on the wand and can be hard to reach, even for an adult. I'd also like the power on sound from the movie to be added.
Great for what it is
from Salt Lake City, UT
The item is really cool because it mostly tries to stay true to the proton packs in the movies. It's a smaller scale, though, about 80 - 83%. There are several details missing from the proton packs in the movies, but it's pretty close. The blaster part was a bit flimsy and the handle snapped off when my pack snagged a tree while out with my kids on Halloween, but the rest of it seems pretty solid.
Great Pack for moding

My boys played with it before and during Halloween. Definitely durable and worth buying.
Great prop! Perfect for Ghostbusting!
I really like this proton pack. It looks very realistic. It's lightweight. It's definitely worth the cost, especially on sale. The only thing that bothers me about it is I find it impossible to hang the proton wand back onto its spot without some help or taking off the pack each time. I wore the proton pack this halloween and received lots of compliments.
I Love all the products

All is perfect

The secret is out! The Spirit Proton Pack makes a great entry-level pack for children and adults alike. A lot of higher-end cosplayers (like me) use the pack as a base to modify with paint, lights, and bolt-on additions. My friend 3D printed a "Stark Industries" logo and painted his in red and gold "Iron Man" colors to cosplay Tony Stark, Ghostbuster. I painted mine in black and silver and added 3D printed "SHIELD" logos to match up with him. The pack itself is about 80% scale of a movie-accurate pack, so I disguised the smaller size by mounting it on an ALICE pack frame (just like the movies), added extra wiring, and bolted on a plastic container I found at a hardware store for holding screws and such. A little extra detailing can go a long way in improving the appearance. There are a lot of tutorial videos and fan-built extras you can get for blinging up this pack, should you want to improve on an already good design. If you're a fan of the movies and want to impress your friends, this pack is a greater starting point.

About Me Classic
Been looking for a proton pack to complete my Ghostbuster uniform. Thank you Spirit. Love the lights and sounds, just wish it made the "power up" sound & I think the on/off button should be further down the wand so you can press it with your thumb
Great for what you get
from Joplin Missouri
Ok so overall this proton pack is great for what you get. However if you're a big Ghostbusters fan then a lot of thing will bother you. On the plus side, it's fun to upgrade the pack and make it your own. So if you're looking for a base pack to start your own creation or just looking for a realistic pack for a costume or collection then this will work for you. Note: The pack is about 80% of the size as seen on the screen.

This product really took me back to my childhood. I had the proton pack from 1990 when I was 5. I had lost it and have been looking for one ever since. Now I have this one which is just amazing with the lights and sounds, which my odd one didnt have. I love this proton pack.

Fantastic replica, especially for the price
My son (age 6) is a huge Ghostbusters fan (the classic, not the remake). He wanted a proton pack for his birthday, and after some basic searching there wasn't much out there for the classic replicas; it was either the remake toys, the collectors packs (at $2000+) or inflatable junk. Lo and behold...Spencer Spirit to the rescue!The proton pack is pretty durable plastic (some of the expensive replicas are at least partially foam rubber, prone to abrasion and ripping), and is fairly hefty for it's size. It's smaller than the movie props, but fits well even for a 6' male frame. Attention to detail is apparent here; while not movie-perfect, it would take some frame-by-frame comparison to really notice any difference. For play or costume it's spot-on perfect.Lights and sounds are good...mostly just standard flashing lights (red accelerator lights and blue power cell lights, plus the white neutrino wand light at the tip and red LED on the side of the wand) and the "blast" sound from the pack. If not stopped by pressing the on/off switch again, it will run through the cycle and play the "venting/shutdown" sound as well. The only wishlist item I would have for this proton pack is for one button to play the "power-up" sound and another to play the blast sound. The power-up sound is THE iconic sound from the proton pack, and would have been a really nice touch. But again, for the price, it's really hard to nitpick here.All in all; for our intended purpose this was perfect. It might be a little off for the hardcore enthusiast, but even then it would be a terrific base to build from if you have some electronics skills to add a sound board and light controller.I would absolutely purchase again, and look forward to seeing the other upcoming accessories as well!

Had a friend "retrofit" my pack with extra lights and better paint. He upgraded his with lights and "retrofit" the Matty collector particle thrower gun. Also added an Alice frame for stronger strap support. My friend is now mounting a speaker inside the pack. Very basic wiring but you need a good eye and a steady hand. Fully upgradable as a hobby or for anyone who knows basic wiring. YouTube has plenty of how to videos. There's also a sticker sheet available seperately by a fan site.

The toy every GB fan deserves
I bought two of these, to play ghostbusters with my kids. We already have a Mattel GB remake projector pack(awful). However it gets the job done for make believe. This pack from Spencer's is absolutely amazing. I'm a 5'10 male broad shoulders and it fits great. No it's not movie sized but it's still pretty large and gets the job done. It take some 3 AA battery and makes a cool sound when turned on as well as had some working lights. If this was a toy that came out in the 80s/ early 90s it would've been so much better than the Real GB proton pack with the nerf piece. It's a blast to put on and play pretend with the kids.Also, I used a 20percent coupon and had dress shopping so I paid under $60 per unit. Great deal. So much fun. Yes it's not perfect but for the price it is perfect. It's a fun toy, not a movie replica. The reviews bashing it are expecting too much for a toy or costume piece under $100.Please now make a trap, PKE meter, goggles!!

If it's in stock, don't hesitate. Buy it
It isnt meant to be a full sized 1:1 replica so it shouldn't be judged by those merits.It is lightweight, customizable, and accurate on about a scale of 75% the 1:1 replica props.For the price, you cannot get a better costume prop. Spirit Halloween did such a good job setting this up.
It's awesome but it arrived broken a lot of frail parts not totally unhappy but I do wish it made a power up sound

Finally a Proton Pack of my own!
By GG Grandpa Gary

Thanks Spirit! I never expected so much Proton Pack for so little money. I love gadgets, and this has always been one of my favorites. Unfortunately, I could never afford a full size pack. This more than fits the bill. You guys should really push this as a toy and not a costume piece. I bought this as a wall hanger. My neighbors kid wants one to play with. Looks great! Once again, thanks.
This has fulfilled a part of my childhood.

Very cool unit considering it's accuracy to the movie proton pack. It's a smaller scale so it's aimed more towards children but an adult can pull it off too. The straps are kinda weak so I upgraded them to military Alice straps. Very easy to mod this to add more Leds in the cyclotron and power cell. The plastic is somewhat thin and slighty fragile. A drop of this can certainly crack it. I would buy this again. I bought 2 for my sons. I'm glad to see them stocking these again. They were hard to find. Everyone in the world should have a proton pack.
Great pack for all ages
About Me Adventurous, Conservative
The pack is great for someone who wants to go out and busy ghosts without the need to make a pack or spend hundreds to buy one. It's close enough to the screen used part to impress your friends and the lights and sound make for a great party trick.
