LEGO Ghostbusters Set Revealed at ToyFair New York

Today we gave a first look at 21108 LEGO® Ghostbusters™ to select collector and LEGO fan press at ToyFair New York, and here it is for you as well!

It’s not every year a pop culture classic like Ghostbusters has a big anniversary, so the team here at LEGO CUUSOO has been working overtime to make this set available as soon as possible. 21108 LEGO Ghostbusters will be available for purchase in June 2014 for USD $49.99 / CAD $59.99.

First, some details from the set’s description:

This fun and iconic vehicle from the blockbusting ‘80s movie is fully loaded with all the paranormal detection equipment needed to track down those ghastly ghosts. It also features cool Ghostbusters logo decoration, removable roof, tracking computer and seats for 3 minifigures.

Now, enjoy a first look at this exciting upcoming set:

While LEGO fan builder Brent Waller couldn’t join us at ToyFair, we’ve learned from working with him just how big of a Ghostbusters fan he is. He recently told us; “As a child I would recreate Ghostbusters out of LEGO [bricks]. I had a very primitive Ecto-1, Ecto-1A and the Firehouse as well as all of the main characters with “Classic Space” air-tanks for Proton Packs. As an adult rediscovering my love of LEGO [building], recreating it now was a way of recapturing that unbridled creativity of my youth.” Here’s the man you have to thank for this awesome set in full costume, including Proton Pack:

Exo Suit Progress

For those of you watching closely, yes we did skip a number! The design process for the Exo Suit, our sixth LEGO CUUSOO set, is coming along nicely–however we’re not quite ready to share details. Fan builder Peter Reid is giving us input on the Exo Suit design as we move it toward production, and you can expect more updates on this LEGO fan favorite throughout the Spring.
