Because the next best thing to a new Ghostbusters movie starring Bill Murray is not a new Ghostbusters film not starring Bill Murray, the folks at LEGO have decided to give fans of the franchise something to play with. So, while you await the next inevitable rumor about Ghostbusters 3, check out these cool 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters toys. And then go buy them. And then play with them like you were 8-years-old again.
The decision to make a 30th Anniversary set was apparently part of a fan-submitted contest. The winner of said contest, Brent Waller, impressed the LEGO team so much that they’re ready to turn his concept into reality. According to the official announcement:
This is an amazing model, and the set will be a fantastic representation of the cult classic film. Supporters know that Brent put a lot of love into this, and the final model, which we can’t reveal quite yet, will be largely based on his original car design. The final design, pricing and availability are still being worked out, and the set will be released later this year, so stay tuned!
Unfortunately, it looks like they’ll only be producing the ECTO-1 and LEGO Ghostbusters characters. Maybe more for the future, guys? Please?
Thanks to blastr for the heads-up.
