hasbro spengler neutrona wand

Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night? Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic? Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre or ghost? If the answer is "yes," then don't wait another minute. Pick up the phone and call the professionals...GHOSTBUSTERS! Our courteous and efficient staff is on call 24 hours a day to serve all your supernatural elimination needs. We're ready to believe you!

I still remember as if it was yesterday going to the movie theater to see the original GHOSTBUSTERS movie on the silver screen. I've been a fan of this film franchise since! So, I was geeked to buy myself some really impressive movie prop replicas of Egon Spengler's the neutrona wand and proton pack produced by Hasbro as part of their Ghostbusters Plasma Series of premium collectibles. The Egon Spengler Neutrona Wand movie prop replica was just delivered and the proton pack should be arriving in a few weeks. 

The Ghostbusters Plasma Series Spengler's Neutrona Wand looks incredibly movie accurate; but it is more than a cool prop replica to display. It has a number of special effect features that make it very fun to play with too! Whether as a Ghostbusters cosplay accessory or just for goofing around with in the comfort of your own house, there are a lot of fantastic aspects about this neutrona wand!

Just to start off with, there are real switches to click on that activate the neutrona wand with the same sights and sounds as when one is turned on in the Ghostbusters movies. Second, there is a clear extension tube that pops out of the front of the wand when it is activated which displays light effects mimicking the neutrona waves shot out by the wand in the movies. Pressing a button on the device lets users switch between four different effects. Plus, changing the light effects also alters sound effects that go along with a particular style of beam. For example, there is a green ray effect that has slime sounds emitted with it. This neutrona wand from Hasbro allows you to choose from a classic Proton Stream, Slime Blower, Stasis Stream, or Meson Collider modes.

The Spengler Neutrona Wand also has a rumble feature to provide the feel of operating one of these devices like a Ghostbuster in the movies. The motorized vibrations can be tuned up or down by rotating a dial. Turning this dial also adjusts the volume of sound effects, the imagery on an energy chart, and the brilliance of other lighting effects. The light, sound and rumble effects all work together to provide an immersive interactive experience that is a whole lot of fun to play with.

Hasbro did a nice job not just on the special effects but also on replicating movie accurate details. Additionally, Hasbro added some high-quality components to the Spengler Neutrona Wand. It is not just made of molded plastic. There are real metal parts incorporated into the design to add an extra layer or realism to it. Combined with the tech components for the light, sound and rumble effects and this isn't some cheap toy. The box it comes in even looks like a real carrying case. It really looks impressive, most impressive!

The only knock I have against it is that Hasbro was concerned that connecting this to its upcoming proton pack would classify the neutrona wand as a toy gun. This resulted in them painting the front tip of the wand orange. That really takes away the look of the wand in my opinion. I'll be adding some primer and metallic grey alterations to mine when I have some free time. That plastic orange just distracts from all the other fantastic elements of this prop replica so that was disappointing though I understand from a regulatory and liability standpoint why the company did that.

All in all, Hasbro's Egon Spengler Neutrona Wand earned a Geek Daddy nod of approval because this movie geek is going to love displaying it in my home's game room as well as pairing it up with the HasLab proton pack I purchased to have an amazing Halloween costume this year. Also, it gets some kudos because I felt like a kid on Christmas morning myself unboxing and trying it out when the neutrona wand arrived.

The Ghostbusters Plasma Series Spengler's Neutrona Wand can be purchased at Hasbro's online retail site, Unfortunately, if you want a proton pack those were produced in a limited quantity through the toy company's HasLab crowd funding platform and are no longer available to purchase. Stay tuned as I will review mine when it arrives and show how it goes along with my neutrona wand. Are you geeked about these Ghostbuster replica movie props from Hasbro?
