LEGO has announced the product or products they’ll be moving forward with from LEGO Ideas. Unfortunately, not that surprising they didn’t choose Sergio Herencias’ Ghostbusters Firehouse. (GB Inc. Blog Post) If we’re not getting Ghostbusters HQ yet, what will LEGO Idea will they make?
LEGO Ideas #011 WALL-E
Big congratulations to Angus MacLane who created this blocky version of everyone’s favorite hopelessly romantic robot. MacLane is a Pixar animator and director, who actually worked on the WALL-E film. He created the model during the WALL-E production, and submitted it to LEGO Ideas in hopes of it becoming a set. Your hopes and dreams for WALL-E have come true, as the creation will become the next LEGO Ideas product.
Getting an official Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse isn’t over until Lego Wall-E cleans up a world full of colored bricks.
Early in January I wrote more about Sergio Herencias project along with newcomer OnionPax Lego Ideas Ghostbusters Firehouse. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post)
I would however like to ask you to support this project, because I believe it has a number of important advantages:
- This is a smaller set (5704 bricks vs 2858 bricks), and as a result it should stand a better chance of passing the review stage.
- Because it uses a lot less bricks, it will be a much less expensive set.
- The building will fit in nicely with existing LEGO modular buildings.
- The interior more closely follows the interiors from the Ghostbusters movies.
Building the Ghostbusters Headquarters out of less bricks does require a smaller Ghostbusters car. Brent Waller’s Ghostbusters car unfortunately will not fit in the building (at least not without removing a part of the interior). If you support this project, please also support my Ecto-1/Ecto-1a project.
In my post I wrote how I couldn’t see Lego building a new, smaller Lego Ecto-1 just to work with an official Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse. Should this Ghostbusters Firehouse Lego Ideas project also have 10,000 supporters Lego would most likely work out the scale between Lego ECTO-1 and this Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse.
