The same LEGO Ideas designer that created the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set also made the Firehouse set, which also received the 10,000 supporters it needed for LEGO to review it, and which they had ultimately past at this time. The set had it all, including street lights, furniture, and many other details that you can see in the video here:
Following the announcement of the project not moving forward, we had asked a representative at New York ToyFair 2015 during the LEGO Press Event about the Firehouse and if there were any plans to possibly move the project at a later time. All we can say for sure, is that the representative suggested it was always possible.
With the success of the Ecto-1, and how quickly it sold through at the LEGO store and other retailers when it was released last June, we can only imagine how strongly fans would react to a LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse, especially now that a new Ghostbusters movie is coming out on July 22, 2016. LEGO should strongly take that into advisement as this would be the second Ghostbusters Firehouse toy ever to be released since the late 1980’s.
Now, it’s probably safe to assume that LEGO will keep it at a price point of $100-$250 and this would probably eliminate some of the features that the LEGO Ideas version includes. All we are asking LEGO to do is keep most of the original concepts such as the iconic sign, opening doors, leave enough room so that the Ecto-1 may fit inside, Janine’s desk with other office furniture on the ground floor as seen in the movie, living corders, laboratory, and whatever else they can fit. We are also asking them to include mini-figures such as Janine Melnitz, Louis Tully, Slimer, Dana Barrett, Gozer, and Vigo.
