We Got One! LEGO Ghostbusters Are Officially A Go!
It was only a couple of days ago that we mentioned the campaign to get a full Wayne Manor/Batcave set produced by LEGO's Cuusoo program, and today, everyone's favorite building block manufacturers have announced what they're actually going to be putting into production. Following up on their Back to the Future DeLorean, we're going to be seeing a 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters set, complete with the Firehouse, ECTO-1 and the four Ghostbusters themselves!
Check out the reveal of the winner and a few pictures of the original submission below!
Pitched to the Cuusoo program by Brent Waller, the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary set will be modified for its official release. Hopefully, they'll fix the one flaw, which is a crucial lack of Janine Melnitz -- although I'll admit that the Glow-In-The-Dark Slimer is a pretty awesome touch.
In addition to the Ghostbusters and Back to the Future sets, Cuusoo has also brought us sets based on Hayabusa, the Japanese unmanned spacecraft, and the Curiosity Mars Rover. Unfortunately, neither of those amazing scientific accomplishments had dialogue spoken by Bill Murray or lines about free-roaming vapors, so, sorry future-of-humanity-in-the-stars, we have ECTO-1 to build.
No word on whether the EPA plans to shut down production, but we'll stay on top of the story as it develops.
