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?
