In advance of the upcoming Ghostbusters film from director Paul Feig, LEGO has revealed a new set featuring minifigs of the new film’s cast, the Ecto-1 and the Ecto-2 motorbike.
This isn’t the first time the company has produced a LEGO set based on the Ghostbusters property, and the original Ecto-1 set with the original cast as minifigs was rather popular and initially came courtesy of the company's public ideation platform, where folks can vote for LEGO to review sets for publication. There’s also the LEGO firehouse set, but the Ecto-1’s a bit more, shall we say, affordable.
The new set features minifigs of new 'busters Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones) and Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy). There’s also one for their secretary Kevin (Chris Hemsworth), which was awful nice of LEGO, and a “Red Daemon” minifig that could be an antagonist of sorts in the film. Kevin also comes with a somewhat spooky red-eyed head, but that's probably nothing. He's probably fine, right?
