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 Shop@Home 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.

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 Ghostbusters Minifigures Custom Arm Printing by NACM

If you are picking up the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (21108) on June 1st or any time after, you’ll notice that the minifigures do not have the Ghostbusters logo on the arms like they do in the movies. This is where NACM – Not Another Custom Minifig comes in. They are selling custom arms for the minifigures with the Ghostbusters logo patch. Each pair of arms are pad printed on genuine LEGO parts so they’ll look like the real thing. There are four minifigures in the Ecto-1 set so you’ll need to purchase four pairs of arms if you want each character to have them.

I ordered four pairs in anticipation and it came out to €18.50 or $25.90 including shipping to California. I’m not sure if shipping is lesser if you’re on the other side of the country or if it’s a flat €6.50 shipping cost. If you’re a Ghostbusters fan, you’ll probably want the arms because the minifigures do look off without them. Brent Waller, the designer of the LEGO CUUSOO/Ideas set, approves of the arms and they look great (see below). You can purchase them here.
