LEGO New Ghostbusters Movie Ecto-1 and 2 35

 

The Ecto-1 is a newly tooled vehicle that is based on this new movie, and measures 4” high, 8”  long and 2” wide. Like the previous Ecto 1 offering that was based on the 1984 film, it features seating for the 4 main Ghostbusters (or Kevin if you wish to replace one), rotating tires, removable rooftop over the seating and trunk space, two opening doors, an opening trunk door to store accessories including 1-2 proton packs, or some of the smaller accessories that are included. The vehicle is very nicely detailed with tech on the roof including a siren, speaker, side ladder, antennas, and other instruments. The license plate even says Ecto-1 New York on the front and back, and even some of the smallest details are there including windshield wipers.

The Ecto-2 is a miniature motorbike with space for one mini-figure. It measures 1” high, 2” long and less than 1” wide. It features a rear storage box and ECTO-2 license plate.

Included with the set are four Ghostbusters mini-figures including  Abby Yates, Erin Gilbert, Jillian Holtzmann, and Patty Tolan. Also included is a mini-figure of Kevin, and a Mayhem Ghost. The Ghostbusters mini-figures each come with a removable proton pack, with some additional accessories including traps, PKE Meter, and a toolbox. The proton packs add some weight in the back and unless the mini-figures are holding something in front of them or are bent over foreword, they will continue to fall over. The previous set had a display stand with the Ghostbusters logo that allowed the mini-figure to stand upright even with the packs. Unfortunately, LEGO did not offer this in this set, but they did include some extra’s including the Ecto-2 and two additional mini-figures. Still, without the stand it’s hard to get them to stand upright with at least using a standard LEGO base for their feet to plug into.

Overall:

LEGO has done a fantastic job on this set and the Ecto-1 and 2, mini-figures, and all the accessories are details are well thought out and executed. We love that the Ecto-1 can hold all four Ghostbusters, and are very pleased that even a ghost made it into the set.

Highly Recommended.
