Has anyone ever tried to make this or have any pics for refference to try to make it. Is it even availabe on DVD ????

It is available on DVD. I bought it from Best Buy for $9. (guilty pleasure)

I've often wondered if anyone had given this prop a go. Those plasma globes are pretty inexpensive anymore...

Ron Cobb designed it and I forgot who actually built it.

Never the less it would make a cool Prop to have.

it is all part of my master plan to take over the world :lol I dont know why I cant seem to get motivated to build the proton packs, it has been years now and I have everything to build 3 of them...I have full sets of the upper and lower shell's, all the add on parts that I sale, the alice frames, the proton guns, traps, goggles, I mean I have all the bells and whistles...all I have to do is basisly mount everything to the alice frame...same thing for my full size R2D2 kit that I have had for 4 years with all the machined parts......Hmmmmmmmmm :confused

does anyone mind if I keep this bumped a little longer....I would like to see if someting can come of this thread and maybe someone will see the post have some usefull info to add. Since we now know who made the prop now, maybe someone can find this person or may even know him and be able to ask questions or find plans to make it, just something to get a little more insight on the Gizmo.

Isn't this a Touchstone movie? If so, then the Mouse has it squirreled away somewhere, that is if it didn't walk away like "The Black Hole" lasers. :lol

Ron Cobb has designed many many things for films and is very well-known.

"Alien" and "Conan The Barbarian" are two films off the top of my head.

Larry Albright did the Tesla Globe Effects for the Movie and Apogee is credited for "Special Props" so who knows?

I would love to see a run of the Gizmo.

It is one of my "Grails"
