The LEGO® Group Announce The Brand-New LEGO® Ghostbusters® ECTO-1

Nov 5, 2020

Billund – WEBWIRE – Thursday, November 5, 2020 Ahead of the release of the hotly anticipated Ghostbusters: Afterlife film launching in 2021, the LEGO Group have announced the largest and most detailed LEGO brick recreation of one of the most iconic cars from the silver screen, the Ghostbusters ECTO-1. This buildable version of the classic car is sure to delight Ghostbusters and LEGO brick fans alike, crammed full of authentic details from the iconic converted 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance which is sure to bring a retro feel to any LEGO brick car collection. This highly detailed set includes a range of tools and features needed by any Ghostbuster to track and catch ghoulish enemies. The LEGO Ghostbusters ECTO-1 is perfect for film fans that want to build their very own piece of the new Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie. With a moving ghost sniffer activated by the wheels, an extendable rear gunner seat, working steering wheel and a whole host of other paranormal detection equipment on the detailed roof rack, the set ensures you’re ready for any ghost finding mission. The car also would not be complete without printed versions of the Ghostbusters logo adorning the car doors making this the ultimate gift for Ghostbusters fans and movie car enthusiasts. The new LEGO Ghostbusters ECTO-1 is the most detailed LEGO brick recreation of the car ever produced and is the latest in a collection of film-based LEGO model building kits for adults who love building to relax and escape from the stresses of life. This set features two brand new LEGO brick elements including a new 6x14 curved windscreen and a new 5 module steering wheel. Talking about the creation of the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1, the set’s LEGO designer, Michael Psiaki said “I love creating LEGO vehicles, and having previously designed the LEGO James Bond Aston Martin DB5, I loved the challenge of working on the ECTO-1. This is the largest and most detailed version of this car that we have ever created. It is crammed full of authentic features and easter eggs that I’m excited for builders to discover as they put this model together.” The LEGO Ghostbusters ECTO-1 contains 2,352 pieces and measures over 8” (22.5cm) high, 18” (47cm) long and 6” (16.5cm) wide. The set will be available from 15th November ahead of the release of the latest film in the Ghostbusters Franchise, Ghostbusters: Afterlife that launches in 2021.
