It’s kind of funny that we were just talking about this in chat the other day, but we now get word that there is a set coming up for “Ecto-2” and today LEGO announces that the new Ghostbusters movie will get its own set. I was already fairly excited for this movie, and the set doesn’t change much of that… but I am now super excited for this set. And I still need to get the Firehouse set…
Check out below the fold for more pictures, including a couple that may have some spoilery little details. Also, is this the first time we’ve gotten a woman of color minifig? We also get some details for the set itself, including price and some character names
LEGO Ghostbuster Ecto- 1&2
- Available July 1st, $59.99
- Based on the new Ghostbuster Movie from Sony premiering July 25th 2016
- Includes the new ECTO-1 car, ECTO-2 bike, 1 red Daemon and 5 minifigures:
- Abby Yates (new Ghostbuster – main movie character)
- Erin Gilbert (new Ghostbuster – main movie character)
- Jillian Holtzmann (new Ghostbuster – main movie character)
- Patty Tolan (new Ghostbuster – main movie character)
- Kevin minifig. (with a 2-sided head)
- Features rolling car with opening side doors and opening top to place 4 minifigs inside, back opens with room for accessories, and 4 proton packs and traps.
The new Ghostbusters all look to be fantastic representations of the characters, which are both new and an homage to the original movies.
Glowy-eyed Thor… that’s interesting. While I like all the other characters, I will say that his minifigure here is just fantastic, down to the duct-tape “I wanna be a Ghostbuster too!” look. I edited out a bit in the press release, since apparently the alt-face is a “possessed” look. No word if he is trying to find Gozer.
Some features, like the Proton packs (which are still great) make a return. Not related to LEGO, but if they re-release the toy proton pack for this, my daughter will be getting it for her birthday. I may get one too to wear, but that’s only so we can play together… really… I mean…
We also get a look at a ghost/bad guy/demon. So there is that. I like those little wings on the guy.
The car itself seems to sport some more details than the absolutely fantastic Ideas version. I know it’s a new car, but it’s obviously very similar.
