Staff Review:

You know, given my history and general tone on the stuff I write for the site, you'd think that this would be my perfect chance to rant about the new Ghostbusters movie. My love of the original was stated when I reviewed the original 21108 Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set (which remains one of my favorite sets ever). I'm pretty sure I've also talked about how I don't tend to like reboots (though I don't dismiss them out-of-hand most of the time). Yet I'm always calling out gender stuff in sets and reviews, so this seems like the kind of thing that could lead to one of those long and rant-y reviews that I'm prone to do. But, to be honest... I don't want to. The movie has come and gone, and shockingly, the original movie still exists and childhoods have not been destroyed. Tragically, the second movie still exists as well.

    Pros:I really like the selctions of mini figs. I also like the build of the set.

    Cons: I agree withe the other ppls: No track and the Locomotive would be difficult (not impossible) to motorize while keeping the same look.

    Comments: This is my first LEGO train i was expecting a little more but it was a fun build. I don't have a city for the train to go around or tracks for the train to sit on so it is just sitting in a display case ATM. The TLG did a good job on making it look exactly like the trian in the Toy Story movie. The scene in the movie with the train was one of my favorite scene.

    Pros: It really captures the set from the movie well. It's proportions are off just enough that it feels and looks like a toy, not a scale model. Good selection of minifigs/characters.

    Cons: No track and the Locomotive would be difficult(not impossible) to motorize while keeping the same look.

    Comments: This is my first LEGO train(unless my daughter's DUPLO trains count) and I'm going to have to admit that I am hooked. I never realized how large they are, for whatever reason I was thinking the set was going to be about 2/3 the size it actually is. I don't usually pay that much attention to piece counts, I look more at the size of the model you get for the price and even though I paid about 1/2 price for this set I don't think I would have been disappointed at all if I had paid close to full price.

    Pros: a unique addition to LEGO trains; some nice printed parts

    Cons: locomotive is a bit flimsy; motor incorporation w/ loco difficult; no rail included

    Comments: This set has a fun cartoony/western aesthetic; a few pieces of straight rail for display would've been welcome; the intricate wheel assemblies of the loco will make adding a motor (PF, 9v, etc.) tough to do without compromising the original design.
