Ghostbusters LEGO Set Celebrates Film's 30th Anniversary

Ghostbusters LEGO Set Celebrates Film's 30th Anniversary

Thanks to a fan submission, Ghostbusters minifigs and a LEGO Ecto-1 will soon be a reality.

The first Ghostbusters film is turning 30 in 2014, which means two things: one, you're really old; two, LEGO will be producing a fan-created set to celebrate the film's anniversary. After being submitted to LEGO CUUSOO by Brent Waller in early 2013, the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary set was chosen after the program's longest review period ever.

Though it seems like a LEGO Ecto-1 might have been a lock to win, it had some stiff competition: an FTL design, The Wizard of Oz's familiar Yellow Brick Road, and even another Ghostbusters set. They were no match for Waller's design, though, which will become the seventh user-submitted LEGO set to go through the program.

The designs shown in the images aren't final, but the retail model will be largely based on Waller's original design. Sadly, it doesn't look like the iconic firehouse headquarters will make it to LEGO form. There's no word on pricing or availability, but according to the video, the LEGO Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary set will be out in 2014.

Danm I wish they were able to pass the reviews easily and quickly (I would love me that Delorean, Adventure Time and Adventure Time Lego!) but still I would be ecstatic if I were to had that Ecto-1 lego so kudo to Brant for his creation to be fully made!

Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary, I watched that film in the cinema when it came out. I feel old.

Awesome news to hear. I hope that, if the Ecto-1 sells great, they will make other sets like the firehouse and the Gozer lair.

Makes me wonder how the hell they'll pull off a Lego Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.

I love Legos so much. I want me some Ghostbuster Legos. Ah, two things I love. The downside is that they are always so expensive.

Price? Expensive of course, but I must have it!!

They all look so cool. Especially those female mini figures, at least those look affordable.

Cool and all, but what's wrong with Winston's hair? Come on Lego, one new hair model won't break you.

Nice Bill Murray smirk though.

Yet another reason why I need more money & space.

WHY MUST I KEEP FINDING NEW REASONS FOR THE TWO?! *sobs*

...You do realize they actually made the DeLorean, right?

Wait, wasn't the firehouse a part of the 30:th anniversary set? Or did I completely mininterpret that video?

I really need to buy some Lego. I loved it when I was a kid, and having some of these sets to toy around with would be awesome.

Oh yeah I starting to remember seeing it on the BTTF fanpage on Facebook! That will be added onto my wishlist.
