Filmation's Ghostbusters - Facing a Ghost? by PotionsTeddy Filmation's Ghostbusters - Facing a Ghost? by PotionsTeddy

Me as Jake Kong from Filmation´s Ghostbusters, my current cosplay project.

I´ve been a fan of that cartoon show for years, and Jake always was and still is my favorite character, so I couldn´t resist cosplaying him :-).

My friend Leela (-> RobinSmurf on Deviantart) is cosplaying Eddie, Jake´s best buddy, so this is my first team cosplay.

A team it is, but sometimes Jake has to face a ghost alone :-). Let´s hope that it´s not Prime Evil!

For more Ghostbusters cosplay pics, either Jake alone or together with Eddie, please check out my gallery.

For pictures of Leela as Eddie, please take a look at her gallery: RobinSmurf.

Or visit us on Facebook, just look for Filmation Ghostbusters Cosplay.

A big thank you goes to my friend Kathrin who took the photo.

Whoa! I'd really like to know how to make that gun-thingy you're holding!

How did you make the dematerializer? It looks so realistic! :D

That's VERY well-made...ALL of it.

One thing I will say about the Dematerializer, though: It's not too bad because it's a lightweight prop, but a heavier "hero" prop might pose some problems.

Something about it looks more than a little unwieldy...all the weight is at the front, and you've got only two tiny handles at the back to support it. (Consider that you would also have to worry about a little thing called "recoil" even though it's an energy weapon...)

Personally, I'd bring the handles forward a bit to the middle of the main body, such that it would lend some balance to the overall piece. (I wouldn't worry too much about screen accuracy: That thing changed size and mass on a per-episode basis.)

...Actually, you know what I'm planning for the near future? A "hero" version of the MK-1 Dematerializer (aka the live-action one: yours is the MK-2.)

Thank you so much, I´m glad you like it :)!

 

Interesting thoughts about the Dematerializer! You are right, it looks a little unwieldy and indeed most of the weight is at the front, but it´s good to handle. You only have to be a little careful. I always found the Dematerializer from the cartoon show to be quite an elegant weapon.

 

I´d love to see the old Dematerializer from the Live Action Series! By the way, where does the term MK-1 and MK-2 come from? I think I´ve heard it before somewhere.

If you've ever visited the Filmation's Ghostbusters Wikia, you'll have seen these terms.

Some time ago, I took the liberty of designating the live-action model MK-1 and the animated model MK-2. (The rarely-used handheld model is the MK-2A.)

Also, I'll have you know that I wrote a lot of FGB fanon back in 2007 or so, when I joined the FGB Fan Forum (filmationghostbuster.proboards.com).
