Lego Ghostbusters Headquarters is Massive, Expensive, Potentially Amazing

If you thought the dream of owning your very own Hook and Ladder 8 meant taking out three mortgages on your house, there's soon going to be a (slightly) more affordable option on the way. This January, Lego will finally release the rumored Ghostbusters headquarters set many thought would never come. There have been dozens of plans for the famous firehouse submitted through Lego Ideas over the years, but whether they were gigantic sets or more modular designs, none had made it past Lego's approval process. At least now we know why.

Based on the iconic Hook and Ladder 8 from the original two films, the Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters (75827) made its official debut today thanks to Entertainment Weekly. The set will consist of 4634 pieces, and features the two-story building with a garage, lab, living quarters and the Ghostbusters' proprietary containment system. The entire cast of major human players, including Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore, Janine Melnitz, Dana Barrett and Louis Tully will be part of the set, as will Slimer, the Library Ghost, and a pink and blue ghost.

Burnham And Schoening Return For ‘Ghostbusters International’

Ghostbusters International, IDW

When IDW's Ghostbusters ongoing series ended, it seemed like it was only a matter of time before the series picked back up in some form, and when Ghostbusters: Get Real launched a few months back as a crossover between the IDW continuity and the Real Ghostbusters animated series, there were a whole lot of hints that it wouldn't be the final act. Today at New York Comic Con, IDW has announced the next form the series will take, and it looks like the Ghostbusters are going worldwide.

When Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening return to the series in 2016, it'll be for Ghostbusters International, a new adventure that finds the team traveling to battle ghosts in other countries under a contract with the UN.

On The Cheap: Dogs And Cats Are Living Together And IDW’s ‘Ghostbusters’ Is 50% Off

Ghostbusters, IDW

A few months ago, I picked up the first volume of IDW's Ghostbusters ongoing, and pretty quickly realized that it was going to be one of those comics that I had to stop myself from just buying all at once, because otherwise I was going to blow through it all at and then be sad that there wasn't any more to read. That's how it became one of the comics that I get myself as a reward, a little treat to get me through the day. I hit my deadlines, and I get to buy some Ghostbusters comics.

You, on the other hand, should just go ahead and buy them all at once, because there's never been a better time to jump in. Almost every part of Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening's run is on sale at Comixology with the collections at 50% off, and if you love Ghostbusters as a movie, I can pretty much guarantee that you're going to love it as a comic, too.

‘The Flash’ Solo Film Eyes Phil Lord and Chris Miller to Direct


Following their massive success with the Jump Street franchise and The LEGO Movie, just about everyone wants to get into the Phil Lord and Chris Miller business. The duo have proven their value with both animated and live-action features (as well as pulling off the near-impossible by making a great comedy sequel), so it’s hardly surprising to hear that Warner Bros. is seeking the pair to join the DC Universe.

‘Ghostbusters’ Board Game Launches On Kickstarter, Promising Real Wrath Of God Type Stuff

Ghostbusters Board Game

Good news for those of you who have been wondering who to call if there's an invisible man sleeping in your bed: Cryptozoic launched a Kickstarter campaign today for a Ghostbusters board game, and it looks awesome.

Set for release, appropriately enough, by Halloween of this year, the game is for one to four players, with reversible tiles for the board and cooperative mechanics that allow you to play as the characters from the 1984 classic, duking it out with enemies from the movies, the cartoon, and the comics. And if you're a fan of the IDW books -- which I am -- there's a pretty good reason to be excited: The designs for the characters were all done by comic artist Dan Schoening.

Buy This Book: The IDW ‘Ghostbusters’ Series Builds On A Perfect Foundation [Review]


Ghostbusters is basically perfect. It's one of those rare films where, with very few exceptions, there's not really any way that it could do what it does any better. As a result, it's easy to think that it could make for a great foundation to build on, especially when you consider that the characters talks about different classifications of ghosts, and the books that lay out all their stats are right there in the movie. There's clearly a rich world in place. Yet it's rare to see Ghostbusters expanded in a way that really works, maybe because the characters are tied so closely to the actors that play the roles, and the chemistry they bring to the film.

But that never stopped me believing that the potential is there, and since the first volume of IDW's Ghostbusters ongoing was on sale at Comixology this week (and I'd had great luck with IDW's TMNT book that I picked up on a similar whim), four bucks was exactly the right price for me to give it a shot. I'm glad I did -- it might not be as perfect as the movie, but it nails the voices of the characters and throws them headfirst into an adventure that's every bit as fun as you want it to be.

Ale Giorgini Draws Characters From Your Favorite Movies With Their Eyes Closed

Art by Ale Giorgini,

When you're trying to spotlight an artist like Ale Giorgini, it's difficult to figure out what to focus on. He's done so much great stuff built on so many themes, from minimalist portraits of celebrities (a roster that includes both Charlie Brown and David Lynch) to pairing off some of cinema's greatest couples in a series called "That's Amore," and it's all worth seeing.

In the end, though, it was the pieces inspired by some of my favorite movies that hooked me, full of sleepy-eyed characters from The Big Lebowski, Ghostbusters, The Goonies and more.

Ido Yehimovitz Draws Pop Culture’s Greatest Rides [Art]

Art by Ido Yehimovitz,

Listen. I love cars from movies. Yeah, I know, you all prefer horses or brisk walking or canoes, but me? I'm an iconoclast, baby. I like cars, and I don't care who knows it. Whether it's ECTO-1 from Ghostbusters or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Party Wagon or even one of those ridiculous murder machines from Death Race 2000, sweet rides are some of my favorite parts of pop culture. And fortunately, artist Ido Yehimovitz feels the same way.
