Ghostbusters Product FAQs
The following are answers to the frequently asked questions for the GHOSTBUSTERS™ product line that we are currently developing.
What items does ANOVOS intend to produce?
- Screen accurate full-size props in kit form (end user assembled and painted).
- Screen accurate full-size complete prop replicas, ready to wear/display.
- Screen accurate wearable uniforms/jumpsuits.
- Scaled prop replicas and collectibles for desktop/tabletop display.
Will you produce items from the original films, cartoon series or 2016 film?
At this time, we are licensed to produce items from Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989).
What price range should we expect for these items?
Pricing for products not yet released has not been determined and will obviously vary from piece to piece.
Will you include electronics, lights or sound?
We hope to offer some fully-built props with lights and sound. We also plan to offer kit versions with options for electronics. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter for updates.
Will you be making any "inspired by" or "off screen" items like jackets or women's dresses?
This is still to be determined, but we are licensed to create derived jackets.
Where will you be shipping to?
We will be shipping to the following countries:
- United States
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom
Will you be releasing a completed ready-to-wear version of the Proton Pack?
Yes, but we are still working out the details as far as pricing and enhancements that will make it differ from the kit version.
Will the thrower/Neutrino Wand have an extending barrel?
Yes, but we are still determining if it will be spring-loaded or manual extension. Please subscribe to our newsletter for product updates.
What is the motherboard made of?
Although features are subject to change during development, this is currently planned as a plate of thin aluminum.
How heavy is the pack?
We will not have a good approximation of the final weight until production is completed. Please subscribe to our newsletter for product updates.
Exactly how much assembly is required of the kit? (How many separate parts, trimming, gluing required, painting?)
We are still in the process of engineering individual components and do not have a final piece count. Most of the assembly will use fasteners (screws) for solid connections. Almost all the pieces will require paint/finishing of some kind. We will be providing detailed downloadable assembly instructions to make it as easy as possible for novice builders.
Can you easily add electronics after you’ve built the kit?
Because most of the major assemblies are fastened together with machine screws, the disassembly is fairly straightforward and should only require reversing certain assembly steps to make modifications like the electronics upgrade.
Is this a Ghostbusters 1 (1984) or Ghostbusters 2 (1989) style Proton Pack?
Though the differences are very minor, this Proton Pack leans toward the Ghostbusters 2 style.
