Australian Price For 75827 Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters

When the official pictures of the Ghostbusters HQ appeared online this morning the first thing I checked was if the product was listed on the Australian online store. Either I missed it or LEGO have put it online in the time it took me to get to work. Either way we now have an Australian price.

75827 Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters will cost $499.99 in Australia.

It’s interesting to note that this is marked as an Ideas set. Up until now we didn’t know whether this would be under the Ideas theme or not.

  1. Mike says:

    Wow, finally a set with such an inflated price that I won’t even consider purchasing it, no matter how much it appeals to me.

  2. Pete says:

    Hmmm… features over 4,600 pieces

    …so where are they?!

  3. Sam says:

    Are you as dissappointed as me that after all the attention to detail they put into the exterior, minifigures & supposed interior, they give us a pitiful printed tiny Ghostbusters logo sign on a 2×2 tile. They could have made a bigger sign true to the movie & scale of the building couldn’t they for a $499.99 price tag??

      It is a little disappointing. I’m guessing they went with that option as they had already made the part for the Ecto-1.

    It certainly needs a 20% sale before purchase!! As a modular owner, I wonder how it appears next to other Lego buildings as it obviously not designed for such a purpose (lack of connectors). The haunted mansion is a stand alone and looks great because of its size.

  5. Branko says:

    Wow, this is $50 cheaper than I expected. This looks like it will dwarf any of the existing modulars, should be fun. I’ll start saving now!

    I can’t wait to see the interior. I know I’ve ranted on about this before but once you get over the sticker price shock its actually great value for the number of pieces. With our dollar hovering around 0.70 USD its pretty much parity with the US price of $350 (and the Aussie price includes sales tax i.e. GST). That’s just over 0.10 AUD/piece or 0.07 USD/piece. To compare a similar size set 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon weighed in at 5195 pieces and cost $1000 AUD when it was released back in 2007, a time when the AUD was valued in the 0.85-0.95 USD range! Admittedly, there will be a lot of small pieces in the Firehouse HQ but there are also 9 highly collectible minifigs.

    I’m really interested in this model. Though it’s a little pricey. It comes out the same day as the modular bank so there’s a choice to be made.
