LEGO Ghostbusters™ ECTO-1

It’s likely quite apparent that we’ve got a perhaps unhealthy obsession with Ghostbusters here at The Coolector given the number of products we’ve featured pertaining to it of late. Well, we make no apologies for continuing to plough on in that regard and introduce you to the, frankly amazing, LEGO Ghostbusters™ ECTO-1 which forms part of the Danish brand’s Creator project.

The LEGO Ghostbusters™ ECTO-1 has a punchy price tag (for non-LEGO fans) of $199.99 but, if you’re Ghostbusters orientated as we are, this will represent a small price to pay for such an awesome workspace addition. This eye-catching release from LEGO consists of a foot-wincing 2352 pieces and you’ll need to have plenty of patience in order to put this fantastic machine together.

WHO YOU GONNA CALL?

If you’re a Ghostbusters™ fan (which implies there are some people that don’t like Ghostbusters), the Danish behemoth has got just the thing for you – the LEGO® Ghostbusters ECTO-1. Bust the stress out of everyday life and indulge in some quality me time as you put together a LEGO version of the converted 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance from the brilliant Bill Murray / Dan Ackroyd movies.

Whilst this is based on the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie version, this ECTO-1 model features working steering, a trapdoor, ghost trap, an extending rear gunner seat, proton pack and cool details from the original car such as the iconic Ghostbusters logo. You don’t require an impressive back catalogue of LEGO sets to enjoy this buildable model car kit – just a love of busting ghosts. And some table space and maybe some Ghostbusters tunes playing in the background.

This LEGO car set is part of a collection of inspiring LEGO building kits for adults who have an appreciation for first class design. It also makes a great Ghostbusters gift for yourself or the model car builder in your life who’s looking for their next hands on project. This is the ultimate ECTO-1 building kit for fans of LEGO® bricks and Ghostbusters™ – which certainly applies to us here at Coolector HQ.

NOT A TOY

It is often tempting to think of LEGO as a toy but this no Ghostbusters™ toy. It’s a car kit for adults with working steering, trapdoor with ghost trap, an extending gunner seat, plus a moving ghost sniffer and other paranormal detection equipment. With extras such as a curved windshield, modular steering wheel and brick with Ghostbusters™ deco, this authentically detailed release from the LEGO Creator series will look great in your home or office.

Priced at $199.99, it doesn’t come cheap but it’s a most worthy investment indeed in our Ghostbusters loving opinion here at The Coolector. It measures over 8” (22.5cm) high, 18” (47cm) long and 6” (16.5cm) wide and the ECTO-1 is positively packed full with authentic details that you’ll be proud to display.
