On the LEGO Shop: The 10274 Ghostbusters ECTO-1 set is available

As expected, the set 10274 Ghostbusters ECTO-1 is now available on the official online store at the retail price of 199.99 € / 209.00 CHF.

To thank us for buying it from the first day of its marketing, LEGO is offering us until November 20 a small gift with this set: a poster featuring the poster that serves as a teaser for the film expected in theaters in June 2021, with LEGO sauce.

The dilemma of the day: should we crack now and pay for this box at a high price or wait for the VIP weekend announced for November 21/22, 2020 which will double the VIP points on all purchases and obtain the sets 40410 Charles Dickens Tribute free from 150 € of purchase and 5006291 2x4 Teal Brick offered from 200 € of purchase? It's up to you to see, it's trying but there's no guarantee that the ECTO-1 won't be out of stock by then.

LEGO 10274 Ghostbusters ECTO-1

LEGO today unveils the set 10274 Ghostbusters ECTO-1, a large box of 2352 pieces which will allow, from November 15 and against the modest sum of 199.99 € / 209.00 CHF to assemble the emblematic vehicle of the cinematographic saga launched in 1984 and whose third part, entitled Ghostbusters: Afterlife, will be released in theaters in June 2021.

The announcement of this set is not a surprise to those who follow social networks assiduously, several photos of the box have been posted in recent days.
The vehicle proposed here is therefore an interpretation of the Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance from 1959 which will be present in the sequel with Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) and Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler in Stranger Things) scheduled for next year. LEGO is not the only toy manufacturer to offer an interpretation of the film's ECTO-1, Hasbro for its part will market its 1 / 18th version in January 2021.

LEGO 10274 Ghostbusters ECTO-1

This LEGO version of the ECTO-1 measures 47cm long, 16.5cm wide and 22.5cm high. Unlike the LEGO Ideas set 21108 Ghostbusters ECTO-1 marketed in 2014, this new set does not contain any minifig. Some may regret the absence of a small separate display with several minifigs as is the case with DC Comics sets. 76161 1989 Bat Wing et 76139 1989 Batmobile, but the film will feature a main cast very different from that of the first two parts of the cinematographic saga and the presence of the four "historical" ghost hunters is not really justified here.

You understood it by discovering the first visuals of the set published on the usual channels a few days ago, this is not the original ECTO-1 but the version that will be used in the third part of the saga.

If the franchise logo on the three doors of the vehicle is well pad printed, the rust spots are based on stickers and it will therefore be possible with some adjustments to choose between the original version of the vehicle and the one that will be present in the film which will be released in 2021. It will be sufficient to refrain from placing the 38 (!) stickers embodying the rust stains on the bodywork and possibly to manage to move the ladder from the left side to the right side of the roof in order to to exhibit an "original" version of the vehicle.

LEGO 10274 Ghostbusters ECTO-1

As for the new elements present in this box, we will note the presence of a windshield specially designed for this model and a new steering wheel. The ambulance steering is functional, the doors open, and the rear seat on the right side slides out to become a firing position like in the movie trailer. It will be remembered that in the animated series The Real Ghostbusters broadcast in France at the end of the 80s, the seat came out of the roof of the vehicle.

Note that the instruction booklet and the sheet of fifty stickers are no longer packaged in a transparent plastic bag but are packaged here in neutral cardboard packaging.

Designer Mike Psiaki worked on this new vehicle, we already owed him the Aston Martin from the set. 10262 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 marketed in 2018. I believe that apart from the rear of the ambulance, the door of which seems to me visually a little too narrow, we can without getting too wet consider that this new model is much more faithful to the reference vehicle on the aesthetic level than the Aston Martin was in its time.

We will talk about this box again quickly and I have already been able to obtain an additional copy to put into play on the occasion of the launch on November 15 thanks to Sony Pictures Consumer Products (SPCP) which I thank in passing.

New LEGO BrickHeadz 2018: some official visualsThe server that hosts the official visuals has again been updated and there are now some LEGO BrickHeadz sets expected for early July including two Star Wars references and the Ghostbusters pack featuring Peter Venkman and Slimer recently presented by LEGO on social networks:

  • 41619 Darth Vader (104 pieces - 9.99 €)
  • 41620 Stormtrooper (124 pieces - 9.99 €)
  • 41622 Peter Venkman & Slimer (228 pieces - 14.99 €)

We now know how Slimer will be presented on its support with a visual of the transparent piece whose mission will be to create the illusion of the ectoplasm floating.

Regarding the two Star Wars references, Darth Vader and a Stromtrooper, the rather enthusiastic collector that I am of the products of this range remains unmoved here in front of these two figures.

LEGO Ghostbusters BrickHeadz: 41622 Peter Venkman & Slimer

It's BrickHeadz Day at LEGO: After the announcement of three packs of Harry Potter figures, here is now a Duo Pack (ref. LEGO 41622) under Ghostbusters license which features Peter Venkman and Slimer (Bouffe-tout in the French version).

The presentation visual above shows Slimer levitating, I wonder what solution LEGO will use to keep this visual effect.

It is not known at this time if all members of the Ghostbusters team will be entitled to a LEGO minifigure. This Duo Pack will be available from June 1st.
