See several Ant-Man tools that never made it into the film. The film Ant-Man is a massive success. But it went through changes after director Edgar Wright left the project. We've had several hints what changed, but a big change is how much others would help in the heist. Early concept art by John Eaves shows Scott having several devices that Ant-Man didn't use. Plus, see some alternate looks at Pym's hearing aid, Ant-Man's helmet, Yellowjacket's carrying case and Cassie Lang's Ugly Rabbit Doll.
John Eaves is a professional designer and illustrator who's worked on big budget projects like Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), Star Trek (2009) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).

"[Ant-Man] is very much a heist film. It has all the fun, tension and drama of a good heist film," Evangeline Lily told CNN, "The heist is being masterminded by myself, my father and Scott Lang." If you watch the film it's a team effort. But, Scott was supposed to have tools to break in without help using Pym technology.
In one scene Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) break into Yellowjacket's (Corey Stoll) facility. A team member shuts down a laser grid into the facility during the break-in. In the concept art, there's a device called a "Laser Grid Scrambler". Plus, there's a "Pym Particle Atomizer" that would let him spray an object to make it grow or shrink.
The cutest thing that didn't make it into the film is the saddle for the flying ant nicknamed "Ant-thony".
