Sadly I found out there's NO WAY that the thrower can just have a plug in device aside from connecting to a power source in the proton pack. We're going to have to leave any kind of connecting function to our resident mad scientists to whip something up.zeta otaku wrote: ↑October 24th, 2021, 8:42 amthat would be the only way as there's no way they would make consumers open up their product and do internal tinkering.
Fair point and I apologize for that.
A thought dawned on me though: is it possible the pack may come with a new insert that replaces the battery plug in the handle? Like some kind of interface that could, in fact, connect the pack and thrower functions?
That said if it doesn't interact with the wand then they must have came up with this idea after producing the wand
If the pack just had the base lights and hum, I'd probably be okay with it. Almost pointless to think about it because I'm pretty sure I'd swap out to spongeface Spengler bored anyways.

I suspect with this the Spengler wand will be minimally compatible with the pack but they will also sell a new upgrade wand. It would be nice for them to put out a wand that has the classic grips.What would be REALLY nice is if this hypothetical wand does become a thing, the grips would be swappable.

A man can dream...but I sooooo wish this gets funded!! Why they close out so many fans around the world is beyond me though.

Any electric know-how people here know if that'd be easy for them to do?I'm not expert, but pretty sure it's very doable. Just look what Spongeface has done with the Spengler wand and existing electronic packs.

I liked it a lot (I was one of the 1000+ people who were lucky enough to see it during NYCC earlier this month). If you liked the first GB movie in 1984, there's a high probability you'll like this as well.
As for pulling out of the campaign in the event that you change your mind about keeping the pack, I think you can always sell it when it finally gets delivered. There's always a market for collectible pieces like these.
mrmichaelt wrote: ↑October 24th, 2021, 9:26 pmYou are probably right on that. Perhaps they did scan everything but didn't factor in linking the wand to a future pack? If they did they would have left some opening for the possibility of linking to two.
Lets hope I'm wrong and everything works out magically

Out of curiosity, usually these HasLab productions make it out to online stores? or they are Always or mostly always exclusive? I was thinking to get 1, but if by history HasLab has not released anything outside their ecosystem... maybe I will get 2 if the price is affordable.
