In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a new Ghostbusters movie in the works. Set to hit theaters next summer, Ghostbusters: Afterlife is framed as a sequel to the original two films, and naturally, it’ll star several of the original cast members – including the original Ecto-1. Now, as a tie-in to the upcoming movie, Lego has a new Ecto-1 builder’s kit, offered as the biggest and most-detailed Lego Ecto-1 model ever made.
The new kit includes some 2,352 individual pieces, and when complete, the model measures in at 18 inches in length, 6 inches in width, and 8 inches in height.
The model is also packed with cool little features that coincide with the Ecto-1 movie car – plus a few new surprises as well. Not only does the model look the part of the original 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance, but it also comes with a roof rack that “tracks” psychokinetic energy when the model is pushed across the floor, a new side gunner seat, a deployable ghost trap, and a dial on the roof that steers the front wheels.
In addition, the new Lego Ecto-1 model comes with a hood and doors that swing open, revealing tons of cool details inside.
For fans of the Ghostbusters franchise, this new Lego Ecto-1 kit makes for an awesome gift idea.
The new Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Creator Kit is priced at $199.99, and will arrive November 15th, 2020. Get it at Lego.com.
As for the upcoming movie, Ghostbusters: Afterlife is set to release in the U.S. on June 11th, 2021, starring Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, McKenna Grace, and Paul Rudd, with appearances by Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts.
