We've had a LOT of questions regarding ALICE Frames and which ones will work with the upcoming Hasbro Spengler's Proton Pack. There are a lot of different styles of frames out there from various different manufacturers. The good news is that nearly all of them will work, but there is one specific style to AVOID!
Most styles of ALICE Frames currently being produced are known as "LC-1" style. They match the style that was made in the 1970's and the ones that were used in the Ghostbusters films. While original frames from the 70's are rare, there are still a lot of replica frames that will suit the Hasbro Proton Pack.
The Fox Outdoor Frame has been a long standing favorite of the Ghostbusters Prop building community. It is a very solid replica and uses sturdy metal and has good quality control. You can buy these frames from GBFans, Amazon or FoxOutdoor directly.

The Rothco frame is another strong contender and if you are looking to match the styling of Ghostbusters Afterlife, this is the one for you! These are the same frames they used in Ghostbusters Afterlife. Just be aware, the quality of the frame is much weaker than the other two options (in our opinion). They are available on Amazon through two different sellers:

We sell an LC-1 Replica Frame! This is the closest replica to the original LC-1 that exists. We took the common replica frame and beefed up the metal so that it matches the same thickness as the original frames. These are available, but sold without the pads. Replica LC-1 pads are also available!

BEWARE the LC-2
Finally. We have received reports from those who already have the Hasbro Proton Pack in hand. They have found that the LC-2 will not work without modifications. The problem stems from the different style of cross bar. This bar will apparently not allow the frame to work with the Hasbro Proton Pack.
You can identify an LC-2 frame by the green color (not black) and the cross bar. Be aware that most sellers do not know the difference and will list their LC-2 frame as an LC-1 frame. Be on the lookout and ask for specific pictures!
