I admit it's a big surprise--with the continuation of the Minimates line having announced at SDCC, I assumed Legos would be considered the same niche.

Pretty neat, though.
:)

Egon would approve of that, definitely. :ej4ever:

Plus the Character Building figures are about the same size as Legos. Lego Egon won't be overly large next to a CB Jon Pertwee as Minimate Egon is, so there's Professor Epimetheus!

Image

:lol:

I've deleted my old post, and am making this new post with much better pictures of Jake's Lego Ecto-1 and mini-figures, taken with my much better camera. And, when I treated myself to that just after Christmas, Jake treated himself to the Lego firehouse as well. We have taken many pictures of that, and I'll upload all of them soon. But putting them all in one post would just be overkill!

Anyway, here's the Ecto from all angles:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Mini-figures, and mini-figures with Ecto:

Image

Image

The Ecto-1 parked in the firehouse...

Image

...and coming out of the firehouse doors:

Image

During construction, Jake thought perhaps covering the firehouse with a tea towel would protect it from our mischievous cat. He was wrong.

Image

Enough for now, I think, but I shall return soon with pictures perhaps even more fascinating than these. ;)

Very nice. The closest I ever got to something like that is the ECTO-1 models and Minimates. I contemplate getting the Lego Ghostbusters...but I'd be even more tempted if there were RGB Lego. Or EGB Legos. (The guy from Diamond Select has posted on GBFans that EGB Minimates are a possibility)

:lol: So very true.

Glad you enjoyed them, Fritz. Here come some more. :)

Jake next made me take pictures of the firehouse from almost all angles. I'm going to start with what I think is the least interesting (and I defy anyone to disagree):

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

You can see quite a lot of not-very-interesting background stuff in those as well. :D Here is a close-up on the doors:

Image

Now all the mini-figures that come with the set. From left to right: Slimer, ghost cab driver, Dr Peter Venkman, Winston Zeddemore, Janine Melnitz, librarian ghost, Dr Egon Spengler, Dr Ray Stantz, Dana Barrett (possessed) and Louis Tully (possessed). Also features a trashcan (behind Dana) and detail on the one way sign.

Image

The top floor...

Image

...the middle floor...

Image

...and, last but by no means least, the ground floor office area (next to it is just empty space; I have previously posted a picture of this space occupied by the Ecto-1).

Image

And, last for now, an occupied office area (lovingly staged by Jake):

Image

Coming soon: more occupied and unoccupied areas of the firehouse, and even recreations of scenes from GB1 and GB2! :D

Some more bits and bobs from around the firehouse. First, the equipment lockers:

Image

Poor Winston! The containment unit:

Image

Image

As you can see, Winston is doing all the work, as well as having to do without a locker. Now everyone's favourite feature (if you watch any reviews on Youtube), the slide-downable pole:

Image

'Does this pole still work?'

Image

Yep!

Image

(That one just wanted to be blurry no matter what. Oh well.)

The bathroom, without and with Slimer:

Image

Image

And finally, for now, the dancing toaster scene by me...

Image

...and Jake's re-creation of Dana levitating (in the firehouse this time, but I'm sure no one feels like being pedantic about that!):

Image

Image

Even more to come... :roll:

Okay, last ones, beginning with the librarian ghost in her scary form:

Image

These scene re-creations were both staged by Jake. Winston to the rescue...

Image

...and Egon and Janine with the possessed Louis Tully:

Image

You actually get a pretty good view of the monitor there, don't you? But, so you can see it in all its glorious detail, here's the close-up I wanted to take:

Image

And, last but not least, a scene that didn't make it into the movie but I know many people would like to have seen:

Image

That's all, folks. 8-)

The firehouse is my overall favourite Lego set of the hundreds (and I mean that quite literally) that I have collected during my life. For a long time this coveted position was held by the original Lego pirate ship from 1989, which I received as my main birthday present two or three years after its original release, but the firehouse has pipped it.

I love all the details and the various pieces of homage to both movies, including the computer monitor with the Gozer minion on it, the book that Peter bought from Ray's Occult ('Magical Paths to Fortune and Power') and the expulsion of mood slime bubbling up in the street.

As is obvious from the photos we took, the Lego version includes full living quarters, reception area, science lab and even the containment unit, which is far more than the new Playmobil firehouse offers. I don't think I could ever fully come to terms in my mind with buying/displaying/playing with the Playmobil version, which contains no living quarters whatsoever and has placed Janine's office on the top floor! :?
