I’m designating Mattel’s forthcoming Ghostbusters ‘ghost trap’ toy to be a birthday present to myself!

As you can see in the video, Mattel spent a lot of time on authentic details and actions that should make it worth the $135USD asking price. Having the cord simply pullout (not unscrew) for disassembly is a nice touch. This will be a great companion piece to the previously-released ‘PKE meter’ toy.

However I think a full-sized ‘proton pack’ would be less likely to appear. To manufacture it in a reasonably detailed manner including lights/sounds would probably price it far outside the range of what you would expect for a ‘toy.’ Well, never say never. The Ghostbusters experience would be incomplete without the opportunity to “cross the streams.”
