Upcoming Ghostbusters Movie Gets the LEGO Treatment

Upcoming Ghostbusters Movie Gets the Lego Treatment kristin wiig leslie jones melissa mccarthy kate mckinnon chris hemsworthAfter how long it took to finally get a LEGO set made for the original Ghostbusters, it is a little surprising that Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters is already being made into its own set.

The upcoming set will come with the whole new team including Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon. Also joining them is their assistant being played by Chris Hemsworth.

As far as the vehicles, you get both the Ecto-1 car and the Ecto-2 motorcycle. What is really impressive is just how detailed the vehicles are. It almost makes you want to shoot your own LEGO Ghostbusters movie.

For collectors, this will make a great piece to put alongside the original Ghostbusters LEGO set.  They almost mirror each other, yet they are both so distinct.Upcoming Ghostbusters Movie Gets the Lego Treatment kristin wiig leslie jones melissa mccarthy kate mckinnon chris hemsworth 3

With the new LEGO set expected to release this summer, you’ll have just enough time to build it for the movie’s July 15 release date.

In other news, Activision is rumored to be working on a full-sized Ghostbusters game to coincide with the movie’s release. Activision hasn’t officially confirmed anything yet, so it is still unclear whether it will feature the new cast or not. While licensed games are historically bad, we’ve seen a bit of a renaissance period recently. As long as its at least as good as 2009’s Ghostbusters: The Video Game, we’ll be happy.

In the meantime, please check out the LEGO sets for both the old and new Ecto-1 over on Brickset.
