Ghostbusters Ecto 1 Set Review

20140913_224925

Although I built this set a while ago, I’ve been saving this for Halloween. ;)

Ghostbusters is one of my favorite Halloween comedies, has been for years — although I clearly remember being afraid of the ghosts when the movie came out, I was 7 after all. So when this set came out it was a must have! Back to the Future just didn’t do it for me, still haven’t picked up that set, but this one, yes, I needed it. Okay, needed is rather strong. Really, really wanted is more like it.

The box art is awesome

I love the back especially, I just wish the set came with proton packs that actually glowed. :D

The instruction booklet is really nice with a cool pic from the movie so you can see the real life versions,

and their LEGO counterparts.

The parts are pretty decent

Especially the set exclusives

Okay technically the dark red 1×1 round with hole is also in Emmet’s Construction Mech as part of Angry Uni-Kitty, but its still rather rare as a part. And all the printed elements are set exclusive as are the printed torsos for the Ghostbusters.

The figs have happy faces — sorry for the dark lighting, it doesn’t capture Winston too well

As well as scared faces when they come upon something really scary

The build is a nice one too with some really cool techniques like the white and red trim on the back.

The finished model really captures the look of the movie car

Fun Ghostbusters related fact –

LEGOLAND California used to have a Ghostbusters scene that they put out every Halloween

One of my first assignments was to rebuild the hearse that was in the New Orleans Miniland area after the original one (that was tan — why tan, I have no idea) was stolen. As I didn’t have the original one the only way I could build it was to reverse engineer the hearse from the Ecto 1 model.

Then, several years later, right before I left LEGOLAND California I built a Halloween version of the Hearse that is still used every year for Brick or Treat.

Halloween Hearse 2

Happy Halloween every one and may the Holidays commence!
