LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Review (LEGO)

LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1
What It Is

The LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 is a 508-piece set that builds the Ghostbusters famously repurposed vehicle, the Ecto-1, from the 1980s movie, Ghostbusters. The set also comes with the four Ghostbusters character minifigures of Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler, Peter Venkman, and Winston Zeddemore. Each figure comes with a proton pack and there's a display stand for all four figures.

The Ecto-1 is loaded with ghost-busting paraphernalia and paranormal detection equipment that has been recreated in LEGO bricks. The roof section lifts off to reveal a detailed interior space that can seat three of the minifigures.

Is It Fun?

This set does a great job of recreating the vehicle and characters from the movie. Fans can reenact scenes from the movie or display the set in a Ghostbusters collection.

Who It’s For

This set is for Ghostbusters fans, ages 10 and up. We think older fans and adult collectors are really going to love this one.

What To Be Aware Of

The Ecto-1 was selected by LEGO Ideas members to be turned into an official LEGO set. LEGO Ideas sets are based on fans' ideas, and voted on by the community. The directions for this set are excellent and should take the average LEGO builder about an hour and a half to complete.
