The copper wires while yes, take away from the 84 pack look like they can be pulled apart fairly simply filled in and sanded, filled in then painted if they really bother someone. I mean hell you can place some mini pufts around the copper wire and the marshmallow attatchments will cover up the copper wires.
When the pack comes out i'm sure there will be people on you tube making video tutorials on how to do this.
I don't plan on doing much to mine except adding the video game slime blower to it.
This is what makes this pack so frustrating - the fact that there IS continuous demand for an 84' pack just shows how shortsighted Hasbro was in the first place.
Look, I agree - we aren't getting another pack any time soon, which is why this pack should be able to do it ALL. Since it may be the only mass produced pack we ever get, I think it would have been smarter to satisfy all the eras. This thing is huge and unprecedented at this point for a mass production collectable toy prop, which is why so many like myself would have really loved it if Hasbro just made a "Proton Pack" not a SPENGLER pack. They could have easily still advertised this with the Afterlife MODS and made it possible for us all to mod it to whatever standard or combination our hearts desired. THAT'S how you nail a HasLab and knock it out of the park. As it stands, yeah, most of us are still buying it because it's "close enough". It's just painful to me that Hasbro goes through all the lengths to include the perfectly new 84' stickers, THEY PUT A SWITCH IN THE PACK to make it have 84' specific lights and sounds, yet they won't acknowledge that this pack can be modded in any way.

Exactly - which Hasbro SHOULD be giving us. Did you see how easily the ribbon cable removed in the Savage video? Why not include a clean white one from 84' so people can switch it out? Ditto with the hose loom - we should be getting an 84' hose as well for interchangeability, especially for $400. Personally, I'd love the option to add all the Afterlife stuff and make it look beat, then strip it all off and go back to 84' style. Obviously, this pack had no problem funding without all that stuff, but I guarantee it would have garnered universal adoration by including swappable parts. It's really that simple and wouldn't have cost them much extra to produce, especially since the 84' hose is even more simple and one continuous piece of very basic tube loom.
