Wiimote proton pack ain’t afraid of no ghost

by Mark R

If there is one franchise that shouldn’t be overdone, it is Ghostbusters. I mean, it had one glorious film in 1984 that is still funny, though the special effects look fake. It is a shame that the Ghostbusters II wasn’t the beginning of a whole slew of good Ghostbusters films, or at least a tacked-on trilogy.

There is currently a Ghostbusters game that is available on all consoles, and one fan has created a controller for the Wii platform with this.

According to my source, the “cyclotron” features the four blue LEDs that let’s you know the player selected. There is also a Blue Power cell to let you know how much the power pack has. You can’t see it in this photo, but the blaster is designed to house the Wiimote and Nunchuck in place.

The proton pack was clearly modeled over the ones that Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and the other guy wore from the original films, and it gets points for detail, even though the color is wrong. The creator clearly designed his proton pack to match the sterile white of the Nintendo Wii and not the black proton pack from the films.

Yes, this is a DIY creation, but the creator needs to find someone to market this. I’ve been hearing for a long time that Ghostbusters III has been in the works. Perhaps this particular toy could work with the video game from the film.

i recall when the movies launched, there was a toy proton pack available, with the proton stream being emulated by a foam tube.
