Diamond Select The Real Ghostbusters Egon Spengler
The brains and inventor of the team, Egon comes up with the gadgets the Ghostbusters use to catch ghosts.
The pack looks so good, I loved the way the animated series re-imagined the Proton Packs from the movies. Too bad paint QC is bad from Diamond Select, it’s been a while since I bought any of their stuff but wow, in this day and age, this sort of sloppy paint work should be unacceptable.
The Neutrino Wand hooks up here, the hook is a bit soft though and bends easily, hopefully it won’t break over time.
PKE (Psycho Kinetic Energy) Meter for tracking ghosts.
The ghost trap can be equipped onto the pack, sadly, the “cord” for the trap is a bit tricky to loop around the intended hook, sigh…
I’m not entirely sure how to remove the Proton Pack, the shoulder straps seem like they can be removed but I don’t see how to remove the belt buckle for the waist?
Ghost trap out!
The set also comes with gloved hands for Egon, though the GB wore gloves only occasionally.
As a homage to the vintage Kenner toyline, Diamond Select decided to color the proton streams in the same manner as how it was back then. Unlike the movie figures and in the TV series which all had just one color, the Kenner toyline gave each character a unique color for his proton stream. Egon comes with a dark orange (red?) proton stream.
