LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (10274) Now Available on LEGO Shop

The LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (10274) is now available for purchase on the LEGO Shop. The set has 2,352 pieces and retails for $199.99 and it is based on the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie. If you purchase the Ecto-1, you’ll also get a free poster of the same scene from the official movie poster (shown below).

Keep in mind that next week starts the early VIP Black Friday promotions in which you can get a few gift with purchase sets along with double points. That is if the Ecto-1 doesn’t sell out by then which I think it will.

LEGO Ghostbusters: Afterlife Poster – Possible GWP Item

LEGO Ghostbusters: Afterlife Poster

The LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (10274) comes out in a few days and it looks like there will be a gift with purchase item when you buy the set. LEGO has sent over a cool poster featuring the set in the same scene as in the official movie poster. The poster itself is 10×13 and it is made of thicker, high-quality stock. There’s is also a glossy finish on the Ecto-1 while the rest has a matte finish. There’s no word on how to get it but I assume it’ll be given to VIPs you when you buy the Ecto-1 online and at LEGO Stores.

LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (10274) Officially Announced

LEGO has officially announced their next direct-to-consumer set with the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (10274). The vehicle is based on the new version that is in the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife which can be seen in the trailer. The Ecto-1 has 2,352 pieces and will retail for $199.99 and it will be available in a few weeks starting on November 15. Although the Ecto-1 is based on the new film, you can probably not use some of the rust stickers and have it look like the version in the original 1984 film. Check out more images of the set as well as the press release below.

LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters (75827) Amazon Sale

There’s a decent sale going at Amazon for the LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters (75827) that is 11% off the retail price. It is currently at $309.99 which saves you $40 on it. Outside of using VIP points, this is the lowest the set has been at. I’ve heard some rumors that the Ghostbusters Firehouse could be retiring soon but I can’t confirm the validity of it. Considering that the set was released back in January 2016 and direct-to-consumer sets have roughly a two year shelf life, it wouldn’t be out of the possibility that it might be gone after this year.

If you want to earn VIP points on this set, today is the last day of Double Points on [email protected] and you’ll be able to earn 699 points from it. That means you’ll be getting back $35 from points but that’s still less than the Amazon sale so you’ll have to decide which way to go.

LEGO BrickHeadz Ghostbusters Peter Venkman & Slimer (41622) Official Images

LEGO BrickHeadz Ghostbusters Peter Venkman & Slimer (41622)

Last week, LEGO released a teaser for the LEGO BrickHeadz Ghostbusters Peter Venkman & Slimer (41622) but today we now have the official images of the set via Promobricks. The set has 228 pieces and will probably retail for $19.99 like all other BrickHeadz two-packs. Fans have been wondering how Slimer will float like it does in the teaser image and we can confirm that there will be a trans-clear 2×2 brick to help out with the illusion.

Top 10 LEGO 2016 Sets

I’ve had quite a few readers asking if I would do a post about my top 10 LEGO sets of 2016. Since this is the last week of the year, I guess this is now a good time to do that post. According to Brickset, there was 828 sets released this year, including gift with purchase sets, so whittling it down to 10 is quite hard to do. Again, this is just my list of top 10 sets and may vary from other people.


10. LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters (75827)

Probably one of the best items for any Ghostbusters fan is the Firehouse Headquarters (75827). Coming in at over 4,600 pieces, there is a ton of little details from both the original Ghostbusters movies that you can find. Check out my review of the set here.

9. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man: Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge (76057)

As one of the largest non-D2C LEGO Marvel Super Heroes set to be released, the Spider-Man: Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge (76057) is a great set with lots of exclusive minifigures included such as Scarlet Spider and Kraven. Many fans have even bought two sets to make a complete bridge.

8. LEGO Creator Vacation Getaways (31052)

This 3-in-1 set is a pretty neat set that looks great as the standard model but can also be rebuilt into a summer home and a yacht. The RV is one of the best models of this type of vehicle I’ve seen.

LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & 2 (75828) Review

LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & 2 (75828)

When the LEGO officially announced the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & 2 (75828) set, there was very mixed reactions to it, much like to the trailer when it came out, although it was towards the positive side more unlike for the trailer itself.

For me personally when I saw the details of the new Ecto-1, I actually liked it because of some of the details and features it has which I’ll get to later on. The Ecto-1 & 2 contains 556 pieces and retails for $59.99 which actually isn’t too bad for a licensed set. The contents of the box includes four numbered bags, one instruction booklet, and a small sticker sheet.
