The Lego Ghostbusters Movie

legogbele

LEGO fan and ghosthead Monsieur Caron has been making a Lego version of Ghostbusters. If a creative and talented person can make a short film, imagine what a studio could do with Lego Ghostbusters. No Lego Batman this time. Lego Superman would be okay, if it made sense. 😉

From  Monsieur Caron:

This is an homage to the 30th anniversary of the Ghostbusters movie made with everyones favorite toy… LEGO bricks. With the LEGO Ideas set 21108 that came out this year, I had to do a brickfilm to make the Ecto-1 shine again.

Or course, I had to put a lot of ghosts into it, so I added some famous movie “ghosts” as well as a new one. There is no LEGO “Slimer”, so I found someone else (who eat a lot) to fill in.

This is it, this is definitely it!

The 30th Anniversary official Lego Ghostbusters ECTO-1 is available for sale today from Lego Stores and on-line retailers such as Amazon.

To no one surprise here and this week, the set is already #1 and selling well. Ghostbusters Inc. store Slimes Square will be receiving a shipment this week.

Time will tell if sales could be an indication of Lego producing a Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man Lego set and/or additional Ghostbusters Lego Ideas.

Where To Buy/Order

Amazon US and Target US (on-line) are selling these sets too. Toys ‘R Us was, the page was taken down before yesterday. If you know of additional retailers (brick & mortar or on-line) please list them in the comments. Please, we don’t need to hear about third party sellers on eBay or elsewhere who are selling these “rare” new and popular sets with high, unnecessary mark ups.

First Showing provides a better look at the upcoming Lego ECTO-1 with Ghostbusters mini figure set. With comparison pictures of Brent Waller’s (Facebook album) ECTO-1, which was built to inspire 10,000 + ghostheads and Lego fans to vote for Lego to consider and produce an actual consumer version.

Ghostbusters Lego Firehouse Cuusoo

customlegofirehousesergio

When Sergio Herencias created a custom Ghostbusters Firehouse, ghostheads didn’t entirely know he would submit it to Lego Cuusoo for support to eventually be seen and evaluated by Lego themselves. In a pretty similar fashion, its how the 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters Lego ECTO-1 set was approved and to be produced this year.

Press Release:

I present you, my Lego Ghostbusters HQ Custom MOC built.

Thanks to Brent, Lego brings the GB Ecto-1 Set. I thought to myself- why not built the appropriate HQ.

I decided to built a hybrid between GB1 & GB2 and add more extras and details, lights, sound and other stuff.

The Floors(levels) are removable. Therefore, you had many freedoms for the interior and everything is easily accessible. I have already started the design concepts of various accessories and furniture.

Lego Parts approx. 3000
Total production time: approx. 20H

height: 38cm – length: 33,6cm – width: 17,5cm

If you’d like to support Sergio’s project, vote. Once it receives 10,000 votes, Lego will seriously consider the project. Realistically that may depend on how their ECTO-1 set, complete with Ghostbusters mini figures and proton packs sell.
