Ghostbusters Proton Pack

With Comic-Con 2015 coming up this week, it's not uncommon to find auspicious fans finishing up final touches on their costume to wear around the showfloor. There have always been Ghostbusters cosplayers at Comic-Con, but eager fans are already building the new proton pack from Paul Feig's new Ghostbusters movie - which is literally still in the middle of shooting right now. Last week Feig took to Twitter to debut a few photos, one showing the uniforms, the other showing a proton pack. Per the request of fans, he has posted more specific schematics (found via SlashFilm). It's impressive that Feig is so open with fans about these details, especially this early on in production. If you want to build your own proton pack, here you go.

Here are two schematic diagrams he posted on Twitter at the request of fans. One is a close-up of the gun:

The upcoming Ghostbusters movie, directed by Paul Feig, will star Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones as the new Ghostbusters. Reportedly, the villain will be a "creepy mechanical genius". Chris Hemsworth also stars as the receptionist. There's also the role of Martin Heiss, a professional debunker of the supernatural who tries to disprove the antics of the Ghostbusters after some videos of theirs go viral. The project is currently filming, with Paul Feig posting updates on Twitter - follow him @paulfeig. Sony Pictures will release this brand new Ghostbusters movie, directed by Paul Feig from a screenplay by Katie Dippold and Paul Feig, in theaters everywhere starting July 22nd, 2016 next summer.

Even if the movie sucks, I give a nod of respect to him for addressing fans & actually being a help.

Makes me sad they are putting this much effort into this movie when we were so close to getting a proper one...

I do. Might still be a stupid decision though.
