I remember reading somewhere that the proton packs and neutrona wands differed from each other in the 2 movies? I honestly never noticed this. How are they different?

They are different packs, but they look the same, except the GB 1 packs have a little more damage done to them. New packs were built for GB 2, they are basically the same, except for a few details...

The GB II Packs were lighter, and on the GB1 Commentary track, Harold Ramis said that the GB II Packs didn't light up as much as the GB1 Packs. GBN Member Spike showed pictures from Planet Hollywood in NY of a comparison between a GB1 and a GB II Pack. I can't find that topic. If only someone could find the link, and post it, then you could see.

I couldn't tell the difference just by looking. I don't think many people can until they analyze it.

The differences were only cosmetic. The crank knob was grey in GB1 and black in GB2, the ribbon cable was grey-ish in GB1 and rainbow in GB2, there was a blue hose on the wand in GB1 which was green in GB2, and the ion arm was completely silver in GB1 and black with silver weathering in GB2.

Actually, the note about the Ion Arms is a myth. There are no movie packs with silver Ion Arm ends, only black with silver weathering. The Stream Adjuster Knobs, however, WERE black in GB1, yet silver in GB2.

The ribbon cable is a biggie too. Besides colors being differnt I remember hearing the patterns varied. And naturally we all know of the lable on winston's pack that was differnt from all the others.

Story wise they're supposed to be the same packs, the studio probally had new ones made b/c of damage, newer technology to make 'em lighter, they couldn't find them, maybe they were already at planet holly wood, etc.

You can clearly see that the traps were diffirent, though.

Some of the boring stuff is different as well, such as the shoulder straps, they are padded thicker in GBII than in GB and there are minor details that are different where the ALICE Pack frame connects to the pack.

Okay....ive thought of this before and forgot to mention it...
They had to make multiple packs for GB1, right? They had to make multiple packs AGAIN for GB2, right? So doesnt that mean that they had to use some sort of plans or blueprints or something? Im sure they did....shouldnt someone around here be able to get a hold of those?....or at least a picture of the plans? That could help with the prop making.....and the questions in this thread.

Yes. I'm sure. That whole thing started as a sorta "Prop Rumor" back when the only plans we had were Paranorman's Revision 1 plans (If anyone here remembers back then, they know what I'm talking about) and that was before the weathering was really thought about. So he saw it silver, and just for the quickness of other proppers, put it as "Silver" and it's been that way ever since, even though it never was to begin with. Check reference photos at www.gbprops.com for proof. Tis what I did prior to posting.
