It is on the unofficial facebook page dedicated to the set 21108 Ghostbusters that Brent Waller unveils the box of the set of which he received a copy and he takes the opportunity to make the comparison between his original Cuusoo project and the official version redesigned by the LEGO designer Marcos Bessa.
The Cuusoo logo logically disappears from the packaging of the set in favor of a discreet link to the new platform LEGO Ideas on the back of the box.
LEGO Ghostbusters set 21108 will be available June 1, 2014 on the LEGO Shop at the US rate of $ 49.99, which should translate into the modest sum of 49.99 € with us.
Here are the first official images of LEGO's interpretation of the ghostbusters project by Brent Waller on Cuusoo which has successfully passed the last phase of review and which will therefore join the DeLorean of set 21103 in the department of sets presenting emblematic vehicles of the cinema.
But unlike the Back to the Future set, which I find a bit cramped, this Ectomobile seems rather successful to me ...
This set of 508 pieces including the Ecto-1 and the four ghost hunters (Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore)will be available in June 2014 at a price of 49.99 $ (USA) so a priori 49.99 € with us. No Slimer.
The results of the last phase of the review of the Cuusoo projects which reached 10.000 supporters have fallen and the only surviving project is that of Brent Waller: Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary. So there will be a Ectomobile made from LEGO by this summer on the shelves of the LEGO Shop and the LEGO Stores.
There were two Ghostbusters-themed projects up for grabs during this review phase, and the LEGO Cuusoo team ultimately chose Brent Waller's one because the designers chose to take inspiration from his model of theEctomobile rather than the one offered by TeeKay, whose the project goes by the wayside.
The problem will no longer arise in the future, in case of similar projects, a new rule of the Cuusoo program will allow the team in charge of project evaluation to keep only the one that reached the 10.000 supports first.
The fate of the project Female Minifigure Set remains in suspense, perhaps the time to find a justification for its possible rejection without offending certain susceptibilities ... A decision will be taken later on it.
Important clarification following the many emails received: LEGO will only produce the Ectomobile, not the building.
I don't work for LEGO®, I am not corrupted by LEGO®, I buy my LEGO® myself and what I am given, I offer it to the readers of the site.
For the rest, the owners of the respective brands mentioned on the site remain the owners and it is very well like that, blablabla ....
The fact that LEGO thrills by sending sets for reviews and other tests obviously does not influence my opinion on these products.
