Added another Ecto-1 to the collection. This is Hasbro’s Ghostbusters Plasma Series Ecto-1 version for the new Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie that will hopefully actually be release this year. Currently only available at Target stores. this movie inspired beast is a 1/18th scale collectable of the Ecto-1 featured in the new movie.
Looking through the windows you can see all the inner detail. Three of the four doors open up, one of which allows the release of the all new gunner seat which extends and rotates like the one in the film. The back door also opens to reveal the little trap on wheels (which can be removed) that all the Ghostbuster fans seem to really be excited about.
It’s pretty beat up and rusty, like we’ve seen so far in the trailer. The front seems to be a lot more dirty (not sure how I feel about it) but that may be explained more in the film.
Overall I’m impressed with this Hasbro version with its size, looks, and features, and this Ecto-1 will be a valued addition to my collection.
With the help of my daughter, this Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1 from the new “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” movie took me about 8+ hours to build, spread out over a few days. Lot’s of tedious little pieces to assemble, but it all comes together nicely.
Lots of really cool features like a very detailed engine compartment.
Storage for remote trap with deploy action.
Gunner seat that can be spun around and popped out.
Steering, moving sniffer, and rotating antenna all work as the tires roll.
This is truly an incredible build. I was on the fence for days trying to decide whether I wanted to drop so much on a “toy”, but I’m sure glad I did.
This kit will be prominently displayed in my collection and I’m so thankful I decided to pick it up.
