No doubt Ace will have pictures of this set later today, but I can't wait to share yet another slice of 80's pop culture brought to life in the form of LEGO. Apparently, the CUUSOO team has been working overtime to have this beauty ready for purchase June 2014 for USD $49.99 / CAD $59.99.

A couple details from the CUUSOO Blog:
This fun and iconic vehicle from the blockbusting ‘80s movie is fully loaded with all the paranormal detection equipment needed to track down those ghastly ghosts. It also features cool Ghostbusters logo decoration, removable roof, tracking computer and seats for 3 minifigures.


I really don't care if Pete has to walk home. JUST TAKE MY MONEY NOW!

....must....have....

...actually this gives me an idea - the next line of CMF should just be 16 different Bill Murrays from his "iconic" films...

It looks incredible!! Definitely a Day 1 buy for me. The only thing that would make the set a 10/10 is if Slimer were included.

Awww.... no Slimer. Looks pretty good though, far better than the BTTF turned out.

No, the reveal posting and article was very clear that it was the vehicle and minifigures only. They were not doing the firehouse.

Quite impressed by this, I like the design a lot. A must buy. Not certain I like the hair choices for Peter or Winston though, I don't recall Winston's hair being slicked back, and I'm pretty sure that Peter didn't have the same haircut as Doc Brown. Complaints aside, still a must buy for me.

The set looks very cool, but $50? That's not cheap, especially for what you're getting. Other than that though, it's great, and I'm glad I've never seen Ghostbusters, or I'd be very tempted to get it

I was thinking the same thing about the price - $50 seems a bit steep, but this is a licensed theme. However, with no Slimer I am a bit disappointed. Well that is the only thing that is disappointing. I will just have to buy the modular Firehouse and turn it into the Ghostbusters hideout. I so can't wait for this.

$50 for 508 pieces is around the $0.10 ratio, right? That's pretty good for sets these days. I realize a lot of that is greebles on the top, but still the set looks really well-done. It seems LEGO took notes from the BTTF backlash and really tried to make this one great.

While it's not in my preferred genre, I have to say it's a very tempting buy.

Just wondering ... is the display stand that the figs are shown on part of the set? Not that it really matters ... just might save me using a few more collectible MF stands :)

I was wondering the same thing too. That is just fantastic. I wish more sets came with minifig display stands.

This looks fantastic! My only complaint is Venkman's hair. I think the hair Winston has would be a better representation, or even just the regular hair.
