The GIZMO 8910 is the updated version of our Ghostbusters 2 style belt gizmo. It is an idealized rendition of the gizmos seen in the second movie and comes complete with real working circuitboards, a set of electronic components, vintage glass display tubes and adjustable lighting effects.

Unlike our GIZMO 8410 kit, which is a replica of a real-world Sanyo calculator circuitboard, the 8910 takes its cues from reference photos of the Venkman 'stunt board'. These stunt boards were never intended to be seen up close and, as a result, were roughly constructed from rubber, foam and leather. Our kits, however, are designed to look amazing as the centerpiece of your GB2 uniform. Pair the Gizmo with a leather holster and attach the daughterboard to your belt using the heavy duty 50mm steel belt clip.

The kit comes partially assembled — all the custom components and electronics needed for the lighting effects have been pre-made for you and simply attach to the gizmo using connectors on the board itself. All other non-functioning components can be attached in anyway you like, therefore SOLDERING IS OPTIONAL!

This updated kit also features a detachable daughterboard and a new swappable battery cable that plugs into a connector at top of the unit. Plus - as this incorporates a real circuitboard - additional LEDs (that were previously only cosmetic) are now fully lit and integrated with the main lighting display!

Tools required for this kit:
• Soldering iron (recommended but optional)
• Hot glue gun (required if not soldering)
• Cyanoacrylate (super glue)

• Small Phillips screwdriver (suitable for M2.5, M3 & M4 screws)
• Heat Source (heat gun or lighter)

Accurately inaccurate.

Our updated Gizmo kits are no longer 3D printed - we have painstakingly studied reference photos to produce custom-made, professionally fabricated circuitboards that recreate the look of the screen-used props. We include a full set of components which we recommend soldering to the boards, however - as all the working electronics have been done for you - these can simply be glued to the rear of the board if you prefer.

Light 'em up!

Also included in the kit is a set of eight glass VFD tubes sourced from Russia or Eastern Europe - a good visual replacement for the rare GDT Nixie tubes used by Sanyo. These are augmented with a pre-assembled lighting asssembly. This includes nine super bright multicolor LEDs that have been integrated into the specially designed 'nixie shelf' and 'error box. Using a 9V battery, simply plug in the included cable to the connector on the top of the unit and you can adjust the pre-programmed light patterns and colours with a quick flick of the toggle switch and buttons on the control panel.

Leather holster also available.

Complete your kit with a screen-accurate leather holster — designed to fit your Gizmo like a glove! Available in GB1 and GB2 styles, these holsters are made from heavyweight veg-tan leather and set with brass snaps and rivets. Plus, order your Gizmo kit with a matching holster, and you will receive £9 off the combined price!
