LEGO Announces Ghostbusters Ectomobile Set

If the LEGO CUUSOO sets keep going the way they are, a whole lot of geeks are going to start going broke. Following on the heels of August’s release of the Back to the Future DeLorean set, the next release has just been revealed: a model of the Ectomobile from the iconic 1984 movie Ghostbusters and the much less iconic 1989 sequel Ghostbusters II.

They haven’t revealed exactly what the upcoming set will look like – right now, all we have to go on are the photos of the set submitted by a designer named Brent Waller. The official press release from LEGO makes no mention of the renovated-firehouse headquarters building being part of the set, which is slightly disappointing as it looks pretty incredible in Waller’s photos. But the Ectomobile by itself will be plenty incredible if that (and minifigs of the Ghostbusters, of course) are all that’s included, especially if they make the lights on top work.

So, what do you think? A sure-thing insta-buy no matter what, or wait and see?

  1. I would TOTALLY buy it. I got $200 from the last set I got, not even realizing it would be a hit, but it was a Pirates of the Caribbean set. This one, I would keep locked up in cool, dry place and strike when the iron is hot, however long it takes to up the ante. And if it never becomes worth anything, it’s a pretty darn cool piece.

  2. I know it’s not a traditional LEGO feature, but ECTO-1 really REALLY needs to come with the siren sound effect. REEOW REEOW REEOW….
