This Lego Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set was released in 2014, and was the second Lego Ideas set that I was lucky enough to buy. It is a beautifully nostalgic set, and the original creator was definitely playing on that when it was listed as a 30th anniversary Ghostbusters set.
However, even though Ghostbusters was first released in 1984, the set managed to make the 30th year deadline, it wasn’t really Branded in that way, although LEGO does mention in in the description.
If you are a fan of Ghostbusters and have a few spare Lego bricks lying around, I would definitely get the building instructions for the set. You can get the link below 😉
This was the first Ghostbusters set, but later LEGO would release LEGO Ghostbusters video game, and a Ghostbusters BrickHeadz set. A LEGO Dimensions add-on, and another Ecto-1 for the release of the Ghostbusters ‘remake’ (75828).
