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.

Sergio Herencias, a custom LEGO designer and a ghosthead who once had a successful LEGO Ideas project for a Ghostbusters Firehouse was given an upcoming LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ Set 75827. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, November 11, 2015) Sergio built LEGO’s official Ghostbusters HQ in front of our very eyes, (with a high speed workout) giving us an official first review.

Today LEGO uploaded to their Facebook page art and interior images for their upcoming Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ. Set number 75827. Your first look at the official images of set 75827 Firehouse Headquarters! Get ready to bust some ghosts and recreate iconic Ghostbusters scenes with the 2-story Firehouse Headquarters! Available starting January 2016 http://bit.ly/FirehouseHeadquarters Organized photos after the break!

Figures, selfishly on a day where I was tired and had a sinus headache LEGO posted on their Facebook page what I’m calling a tease about their upcoming Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ. (Set 75827) Previously I posted what I considered speculation, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 19, 2015) was mostly likely an error on the part of Toys R’ Us Canada. Get ready to bust some ghosts at the Firehouse Headquarters! Here’s your first look at… Read More

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

Last April we introduced Ecto-Containment readers to Brent Waller’s LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Stay-Puft. Since then Lego Cuusoo became LEGO Ideas, Brent’s Ghostbusters ECTO-1 set became a reality, Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary has come to pass, and Ghostbusters is really getting a new movie, uh we think. While that may bring on new merchandising and marketing opportunities, it doesn’t mean more LEGO Ghostbusters sets are a sure thing.

Back in March with the then upcoming 30th Anniversary LEGO Ecto-1 on its way to retailers in June, Sergio, a ghosthead and custom LEGO builder created a LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ. (Ecto-Containment blog post) As the project is on LEGO Ideas the goal was for 10,000 ghostheads and/or LEGO fans to support the project. If it reaches 10,000 supporters, LEGO will review the project. Sergio’s Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ (LEGO Ideas) has met this… Read More
