WATCH: First look at LEGO Ecto-1

May 8th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Well, we’ve been waiting forever but here it is in it’s full, beautiful glory… the LEGO  Ecto-1, complete with Ghostbusters figures. And we’ve fallen head over heels in love with it.

You may remember that back in January LEGO announced that a fan’s design for the car had been chosen as a full kit for Ghostbusters’ 30th anniversary next month. And here it is in its full glory.

The Set retails for $49.99 (rumoured £39.99  in the UK) and will be released on June 1st.

According to Slashfilm who have the pics “compare the actual set that’ll be in stores side-by-side with the original Lego Cuusoo version designed by Brent Waller. It offers a unique insight into how Lego creates its work compared to the process of talented fan designers. Check out the photos below.

These photos and video originated at Brent Waller’s Facebook. He designed the Cuusso submission that won the contest. Thanks to The Brick Fan for the heads up. In these photos, the original project submission is on the left and official set is on the right.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
