  • 12,000 backers to manifest the Supernatural Startup Unlock
  • 15,000 backers to trap the Highly Secure Receptacle Unlock

(HASBRO/Ages 14 years and up/Crowdfunding price: $299.99/Estimated to ship in late Fall 2024)

A lot has happened since we saved the world with our first-ever HasLab - the Ghostbusters Plasma Series Spengler's Proton Pack life-size replica (no longer available). That's why, here at the Ghostbusters HasLab Lab, we've been working on something special for fans and collectors: the highly anticipated sequel to the smash-hit Hasbro Pulse Ghostbusters HasLab, the Ghostbusters HasLab 2!

The Ghostbusters Plasma Series has equipped fans with a stunning Neutrona Wand and a breathtaking Proton Pack, and now we're pleased to announce that spooky specters and ghosts can run... but they can't hide - not from the Plasma Series Two in the Box! P.K.E. Meter and Ghost Trap premium adult collectible set!

This crowdfunded project will run from October 27, 2023, to 11:59pm ET on December 11, 2023, and requires 10,000 backer orders to begin production. If the suspension, shocks, brakes, brake pads, steering box, transmission, and rear end hold up as we drive this campaign to the finish line, the project is estimated to ship in late Fall 2024.

It's no secret Egon Spengler was a very hands-on, DIY kinda scientist, often cobbling together his hardware from common, everyday items, and the P.K.E. Meter is no different. Egon used an old electric shoe polisher for the bulk of this handheld piece of tech, which trades in footwear for phantasms, determining specter location and quantification. The P.K.E. Meter acts like a divining rod when near a spectral being, with a pair of motorized arms extending outward from the sides, embedded lights flashing in sync with detectable spectral frequencies.

Fans will be happy to know that not only have the HasLab Lab Lab Techs included classic P.K.E. Meter features, such as Ghost Detection Mode, but they've also included a very special upgrade. Yes, that's right, the HasLab P.K.E. Meter 1:1-scale premium adult collectible features Egon Spengler's personal upgrade from his time as the Dirt Farmer, in Summerville: Taser Mode! Taser Mode, if you're unfamiliar, turns the P.K.E. Meter into a taser that forces an apparition to reveal itself... or explode in a burst of marshmallow goo, as we know from Podcast's dealings with the mischievous Mini-Pufts in the Ecto-1.

Needing something to contain and transport paranormal entities to a more permanent housing facility (namely the Ecto-Containment Unit), Ray Stantz and Egon Spengler designed the Ghost Trap. Consisting of a main chassis and a removable cartridge, the Ghost Trap has limited battery life and was never meant to accommodate ecto-plasmic beings for any extended period.

This 1:1-scale premium adult collectible features everything fans love about this vital piece of ghost-bustin' gear, including the removable cartridge, high-powered LEDs, premium metal finishes, functioning diecast metal wheels for smooth deployment, and more! This thing is so gorgeous that ghosts will be throwing themselves at you just for a chance to get trapped within this highly detailed, premium collectible!

Beautiful, you're hired. Welcome aboard. Here's your Supernatural Startup Unlock!

If you want to suit up then you're gonna have to study up, because the last thing you want is to be unprepared when in the presence of a nasty, focused nonterminal, repeating phantasm, believe you me, buster. Get to know your supernatural elimination equipment with the Supernatural Startup Unlock. Bust this unlock and you'll receive a handy 18"x24" P.K.E. Meter and Ghost Trap blueprint poster, which, quite frankly, will look pretty boss displayed on your favorite wall.

Speaking of boss displays, you can really spruce up any joint with a few perfectly placed slaps. That's why we've included some sick sticker designs, inspired by the Ghostbusters universe, including Ray's Occult Books, Stay Puft Marshmallows, and more!

Think you know what else we have in store? Fancy yourself as an aspiring psychic? Then you're in luck because you're going to love testing the limits of your psychic abilities with a set of five 4.5"x7" ESP cards, inspired by Dr. Venkman, and updated with a Dr. Stantz flair. Oh, we also took out a third mortgage on the HasLab Lab to give these cards a premium linen-backed finish!

And if that's not enough, you can slap a screen-accurate '84 No Ghost patch replica on your flight suit. Re-created to match the screen-used Ghostbusters patches from the original 1984 smash hit, this patch is the perfect addition to the shoulder of your suit.

12,000 backers bust the Supernatural Startup Unlock. We shouldn't have to raise the dead to hit that number, but if we do, don't worry, we handle this kind of thing all the time.


Face it, ghost-bustin' is a very active job, boots on the ground and packs on the backs.

Sometimes a pesky paranormal pest will flee... straight through a wall. A good Ghostbuster will give pursuit, which means regaining lost ground, thanks to that slimy, supernatural shortcut. It's not easy to run - or even jog - with a Proton Pack strapped to your back. Thankfully, your pack is secure; your Trap should be, too!

When hustling down a hallway to catch up to a fleeing phantasm, your Trap is going to be hanging onto your belt for dear life. You don't want to meet up with your target only to discover your Trap fell off somewhere along the way. That won't be an issue with the Secure Receptacle Ghost Trap Unlock, which comes complete with a secure holster, created with premium soft goods and real metal.

Oh, and we're throwing in another Ghostbusters patch! That's right, we've got our very own exclusive Ghostbusters HasLab patch you can slap on your suit, add to your patch collection, or trade with fellow busters!

15,000 backers trap the Secure Receptacle Ghost Trap Unlock, ensuring your Ghost Trap will stick to you like glue when on the paranormal prowl!


Carrying the P.K.E. Meter around in the breast pocket of your lab coat isn't gonna cut it when on a call. Besides, you'll have suited up, and the zippered breast pockets of the flight suit are even less adequate for storing this delicate piece of homemade machinery. Looks like we're going to need another holster! Designed with premium soft goods and real metal pieces, you'll have peace of mind knowing your Psychokinetic Energy Meter is strapped snugly to your waist.

Need another patch? Good, because you're getting another patch! You love patches, we love patches, and we want to share the love! Unlock the P.K.E. Meter holster and we'll toss in an exclusive Mini-Puft No Ghost logo patch. Yep, the adorable image of a Mini-Puft caught in the red No symbol as seen after the end credits of 2021's Ghostbusters: Afterlife comes to life in an exclusive patch!

18,000 backers to detect the Psychokinetic Energy Unlock, ensuring you have everything you need to take your Ghostbusters Plasma Series supernatural elimination equipment on all your calls!
