LEGO Cuusoo: Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters is one of the first films I remember seeing as a child – I remember being taken along to the cinema… and I remember my mum covering my eyes during some of the scarier bits!

I’ve watched that film many, many times since and even introduced my own children to it.

I also have great childhood memories of playing with LEGO, so a combination of Ghostbusters and LEGO is a perfect combination for me. I was really excited when a Ghostbusters set was suggested on Cuusoo (now LEGO Ideas) andresult is a 508 piece set that I just had to have.

Ecto1Ecto1 is a gorgeous model, with loads of detail. All those sensors, containment units, and other paraphernalia on the roof of the car are built up from individual parts and it was remarkably satisfying to see them taking shape. The same was true of the front grill and lights – it was great to have to put them together and, then, see this nicely detailed part that it might actually be easy to overlook. It looks stunning when finished too!

Ghostbusters group shotThe minifigures sport individual hairstyles for each Ghostbuster, and initialled uniforms. The heads are those ones with two faces (one on the back) so you can change their expressions from normal to terrified depending on the effect you want to go for. The Proton Packs are also nicely done and look fantastic.

I always think it’s interesting when you look at a set like this to see how standard LEGO pieces have been used – the main cable on the Proton Pack, for instance, is a whip (it even has a textured handle). It shows that the designers are using their imaginations in much the same way as you or I would if we were just playing with LEGO from a box.

If you’re a fan of Ghostbusters and/or LEGO, check out this fantastic set, available from toy shops or online at Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com (affiliate links). If you want to see more, take a look at the gallery below.
