This is a different type of Lego Ideas Ghostbusters project. A LEGO designer with the handle of MrLegoHouse has seemingly designed the first Lego Ghostbusters prop. I’m not sure if Lego’s license extends to prop toys. Upon first look this does somewhat resemble Matty Collector’s Neutrino Wand. If Lego could do it, it would be a different market and appeal to ghostheads. Like with what Matty Collector already produced, it would be incomplete without a… Read More

With LEGO officially making licensed Ghostbusters sets, (not Stay-Puft, that’s what I heard!) I kinda thought additional products would come from Lego/Sony. Thankfully over the weekend Lego builders and ghostheads proved me wrong. Over at LEGO Ideas Bobbrick999 has designed Dana Barrett’s 1980s apartment, you know before the Gatekeeper brought property values way down.

Take this with the grains of color plastic, LEGO news site, The Brick Fan posted details about the upcoming Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse. Something I’ve talked about (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 4, 2015) on Ecto-Containment and Ghostbusters Inc. (GB Inc. Search Results) The source for the set number and details would be credible, (Toys’ R Us Canada) however their isn’t a direct link to any press release or product page from TRU Canada. Also this… Read More

Within the last few months I saw in a Lego Ideas email that custom Lego builder JGreeny had created a modular library. As a ghosthead one of the first things that came to mind was here’s a building not only could the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 be displayed with, the Ghostbusters mini figures could enter, also for display or even to be played in. Supporting the modular library was already going well enough. I was hoping by writing… Read More

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… Read More

Not sure how I missed this, in August 2014 (whoops) ghosthead bobewan posted pictures of his custom Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse. Its based on instructions found on the interwebs. Building a Ghostbusters Firehouse from LEGOs in itself is pretty great. When its a gift for his son at Christmas its brought to another level. From bobewan: Hello All, wanted to share pics of the LEGO MOCs I made my son last christmas. I… Read More

Australian based company Brickin It, who makes custom Lego mini figures is taking pre-orders for the “New York Terror Team.” That may sound like some elite delta supernatural battln’ Ghostbusters team. The terror isn’t that Ghostbusters legos are putting the fear in yellow plastic, just the opposite really.

Australian based company Brickin It, who makes custom Lego mini figures is now selling a LEGO Gozer mini-fig! It’s whatever it wants to be. – Egon. The “destructor” figure from head-to-legs are brand new, reworked, and reprinted by Brickin It.

Ghosthead Maverick 1983 picked up a Kenner The Real Ghostbusters Proton Pack and decided to customize it more like its big brother movie version as much as possible. I only recently saw he’s working on this project by his thread on Ghostbusters Fans.   This project is continuing with the Nutrona Wand customization and possibly lights for the pack. To follow the build from the beginning with build pics, check out that message board… Read More

With word coming down the line that Mattel is going to stop making 6” Ghostbusters figures after this year the chances of getting a Matty Collector Gozer is growing smaller. I don’t even want to think about “Van Horne” Station Winston… While we’ll always have N.E.C.A’s Gozer, ghosthead and toy sculptor who goes by the handle Spiff still wanted to do one better. I’ll let him explain: “I’ve been working on this… Read More
