Lego and Ghostbuster fans are sure to be pleased to learn that LEGO will be creating a 30th anniversary special edition LEGO Ghostbusters set complete with Ecto-1 and the minifigs, thanks to the LEGO CUUSOO community initiative. Though sadly not the Ghostbusters HQ pictured below, you will need to build that yourself.
The LEGO Ghostbusters set has been designed by LEGO and Ghostbuster fan Brent Waller and will soon be an official Lego kit to enjoy building. Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by Lego, but you can learn more about the LEGO Ghostbusters set in the videos below and see the announcement that made it official.
LEGO CUUSOO is an initiative where the LEGO community can submit LEGO set ideas, if a set reaches 10,000 votes of support, it goes into review to possibly become an official set and its now happened for the Ghostbusters crew. Brent Waller explains a little more about the set.
“June 7th 1984 saw the release of the blockbuster film Ghostbusters. To celebrate its 30th Anniversary in 2014 I present my rendition of characters Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore, their Ectomobile “Ecto-1” and the fan favourite ghost “Slimer”.
Based on a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Ambulance, The Ectomobile or Ecto-1 is one of the most famous movie cars in the world, instantly recognizable even to those not familiar with the films. Decked out in all manner of ghost catching equipment and an over abundance of sirens, it’s sure to catch the attention of any person, ghost or demi-god in the vicinity.”
