On Brent Waller’s unofficial LEGO Ghostbusters Facebook page where he shares all things related to LEGO ghost bustin’, he has posted a side by side comparison of the new official set sent to him and his original project submission. I’ve reposted a couple of the pics here, but by all means go check out his page to see the rest. I’ll just say it again for the record, regardless of the nitpicking of some, I can’t wait to get this set and since it is set to be released next month, I won’t have to wait much longer.

I walk away from a frustrating build with the intention of finishing up an article, so of course I end up surfing Facebook and Flickr. At least if they fail to inspire me to overcome my builder’s block, they intrigue me in other ways. For those that were disappointed (even if you shouldn’t have been surprised) that the fire house was not part of the latest CUUSOO set, Brent Waller has made the LDD file available so you can build your HQ now and have it ready for 21108 LEGO Ghostbusters when it’s released in June.
I’m glad Brent’s project made it through and I’m glad it ended up the way it did, but it was still really nice of him to release the fire house plans for those that want to take it one step further. You can download the file from him here.
June is still too far away for my taste.
It would seem that the 80′s are alive and well on CUUSOO and another classic property has achieved status due to a pre-existing niche fan base. Brent Waller’s Ghostbuster’s 30th Anniversary reached 10,000 votes last evening and you might remember that name from his Tumbler that achieved support back in May and still awaits review.
With the Back To The Future set successfully being produced, I’m sure that there is more hope for other licensed properties to go into production as well. If this set does get made, I would gladly grab an Ecto-1 and the gang to keep my DeLorean company, but I think the firehouse is another pipe dream that doesn’t jive with CUUSOO’s established set size. As seems to be the case with CUUSOO, there is another Ghostbuster idea coming up fast behind this one and has a chance of achieving status long before Brent’s gets into review. For the record IF this does end up being produced, I want a Knight Industries Two Thousand and an ’83 GMC Vandura in black and grey, so make it happen CUUSOO.
You know what that means, we could finally have an opportunity to buy an official set with Batman’s latest ride. Assuming you didn’t buy the original, or the one that is currently on shelves now… Brent Waller is the man behind this Tumbler, which is one of many on CUUSOO and his goal was to create what he felt was the most accurate LEGO Tumbler in minifig scale. That’s a tricky mission and in my opinion a true minifigure scale vehicle would be able to accommodate enough figures to have one behind each of it’s dual windows. Would that look too wide? Probably, but if I have to choose an inaccurate vehicle I may as well stick with what’s available already. The biggest this going for this creations chances is the fact that it fits within the size they seem to be going for in this range. However, that may work against it as well because LEGO re-engineers the models to fit with their current building standard and that would most likely land it very close to the pre-existing LEGO versions anyway. This makes it into the June review and I wish him luck in the next stage, my feeling at this point is that he’s really going to need it.
