Who Would Buy This Kit?
Lego nominate and recommended an age range of 8 to 14 year old for this builder kit. However we think that it will be a must for any Ghostbusters fans. In addition to them keen Lego fans of all ages will definitely like this set too.
Things We Like About This Ghostbusters Kit
Lego are truly spot on with the film character mini-figure representations. They do closely resemble the 3 girls and 1 man from the motion picture.
The mayhem demon/ghost figure is respectable too. We truly liked the translucent gargoyle wings and the color pattern of this mini-figure.
The whole set has a great deal of detail and if you have the existing Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set having the pair will actually set each of them off when they are ‘parked’ side by side.
While their biggest appeal will be to collectors it also has a great deal of creative play capacity for more youthful Lego lovers. Especially if they have actually seen and enjoyed the movie.
You can seat four ghostbusters in this Ecto-1 which wasn’t possible in the previous Lego Version. Another added feature is that with this set you can open the automobiles doors as well.
Things We Did Not Like About It
This is a nice set and our problem isn’t really with the Lego set it is with the film which we understand was nowhere near as good as the original. I suppose we are a bit old school and prefer the initial motion picture and the original Ecto-1. At least one customer stated he prefers the first Ecto-1.
However if you are a fan of the brand-new film then you are going to enjoy this Lego version of the automobiles and the characters from the film.
A few of the decals can be a bit fiddly to add to the bricks so take it slowly and have some tweezers to hand.
And naturally we must note that Amazon has a choking risk warning for kids under 3 years of age.
Is It Worth The Money?
Lots of online reviews appear to be comparing this latest Ecto-1 with the earlier Lego Ecto-1 car from the first movie. This one definitely triumphes for value as it has 2 vehicles and 1 more mini-figure.
For a 556 piece set we would say this is worth the money. Presently rated at 4.6 stars on Amazon from 154 consumer reviews.
Where Can You Buy This Lego Ghostbusters Kit?
This set is offered from the Lego store and from other online shops such as Amazon.
Amazon is probably the best place to go to first unless you know of a local toy store deal.
This is certain to appeal to an good number of fans of the brand-new Ghostbuster film. Nevertheless even if you are not enamored with the 2016 motion picture reboot it still is a set that has a lot going for it.
It’s a fun construct and will make an excellent display piece especially when it is ‘parked’ alongside the original Ecto-1. They will set each other off nicely.
It will likewise attract Lego hobbyists who like to personalize their own sets as there are a lot of intriguing pieces and decals offered with this one.
