Ghostbusters HQ gets to Lego Ideas review

Another Lego Ideas project has hit the ten-thousand supporters mark, and is therefore now awaiting review. The Ghostbusters HQ project will join others in the next review period starting in September.

The large set is designed to compliment the existing Ecto-1 Ghostbusters car set, which can be accommodated in the garage on the ground floor. The other floors of the building are furnished to provide all the facilities the Ghostbusters team require.


The fact Ideas has already generated a Ghostbusters set seems to me to be both a blessing and a curse: Clearly Lego have already determined brand-fit and marketability, and based on how well the Ecto-1 is performing they will be able to determine if other sets are also likely to be successful. However, like the Minecraft sets, if they have established other Ghostbusters sets could do well, they might just go ahead and make them anyway, without any input required from other Ideas projects.

It's also quite a large set, so Lego would have to be really confident Ghostbusters sells. Plus if it were to be sold without the Ecto-1 included, there would literally be a big car sized void in the model - I rather feel the building is lacking without the vehicle it houses.

Anywho, I'm sure the Lego review panel will let us know something soon enough. Until then you can see more of model on the Swiss Ghostbusters website. And continue after the jump for a video of it being built:
