LEGO 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor by Marcos Bessa

(Ghostbusters) 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor

I don’t usually feature many MOCs on here but this one is worth noting. While developing the LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (21108), LEGO designer Marcos Bessa also created the original 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor in which the Ecto-1 is based on by making a few minor changes. If you have the Ecto-1 set, you can easily modify yours to make it a normal looking car by swapping out the colors to your specifications and removing the greebles on top of the car. Check out the other angles of the car below or on Marcos’ album here.

LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (21108) Review

When the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary project by Brent Waller was announced that it will be the next official LEGO Ideas (formerly CUUSOO) set, my mouth literally dropped. Although the firehouse headquarters wouldn’t be included, it was still cool knowing that we would still get the Ecto-1 (21108). The set is now available at LEGO Brand Stores as well as on [email protected] and it retails for $49.99 with 508 pieces. The set is the first product released under the “LEGO Ideas” name. The box contains six unnumbered bags and one thick instruction booklet.

Box

The front of the box shows the four Ghostbusters minifigures and the Ecto-1 in front of a very cool blue and green smoke effect that is similar to what Brent had in his proposed project. On the bottom right corner, it shows the LEGO Ideas logo and shows that the Ecto-1 is #006 in the product line, continuing from the CUUSOO products. The box lining has some black and yellow stripes much like the top of the ghost trap.

The back of the box shows a very cool action image of Ray, Peter, and Winston crossing the streams from their proton guns while Egon looks on from the side. On the right side, there are a couple of more images inside a film strip of the Ecto-1 showing the removable top of the car and one frame showing the 30th Anniversary of the first Ghostbusters movie. In another frame, it shows Egon saying the famous catchphrase, “Who you gonna call?” and you’ll … Continue

LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (21108) Now Available

LEGO Ghostbusters (21108)

The wait is now over! The new LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (21108) is now available for purchase on [email protected]. The set will also be available at LEGO Brand Stores in the morning too and I expect them to sell out pretty quickly. The Ecto-1 retails for $49.99 and has 508 pieces and also includes all four members of the Ghostbusters. Also remember that it is a brand new month so a new promotion is now available as well. For purchases of $75 or more, you will get a FREE Balloon Cart Polybag (40108).

Will the LEGO Ecto-1 Have the Curiosity Mars Rover Effect?

LEGO CUUSOO Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover (21104)

If you’ve been looking to get your hands on the LEGO CUUSOO/Ideas NASA Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover from [email protected], you are most likely out of luck. The set has been completely sold out for a few months now and will not be sold again. There were times when the set would be up for purchase again but they would be quickly sold out in a few hours. It looks like the secondary market will be your best chance to get it such as eBay, Amazon, or BrickLink.

This brings me to the latest LEGO Ideas product that will be hitting the shelves in a few days, the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (21108). Seeing that Ghostbusters is a more well known entity than the Mars Curiosity Rover, it will probably sell out and go temporarily out of stock when it becomes available on June 1st. LEGO Brand Stores will also be selling them on that day, at least mine will, so you may be able to snag one there as well. Normal LEGO sets usually have about a two year shelf life but some sets are very exclusive with a limited production run such as the Rover and 4×4 Crawler Exclusive Edition (41999). To fans of both LEGO and Ghostbusters, many people will probably purchase multiple sets, one to build and one to save. Others such as investors and resellers will most likely get multiples as well for their means. Does the limited availability of various sets, like the Curiosity Rover, … Continue
