Official Set Details Of 21108 Ghostbusters

We knew it was coming, and now we have official details and a final design for the Ghostbusters Cuusoo set.

LEGO 21108 Ghostbusters ECTO-1

21108 LEGO Ghostbusters will be available for purchase in June 2014 for $49.99 US, which makes this the most expensive of the currently available Cuusoo sets. As usual we don’t have an official Australian price but we predict this will be at least $79.99.

We asked the Brisbane based brains behind the project, Brent Waller, what he thought of the final design:

I was very excited to see the final model revealed. Marcos Bessa has absolutely nailed the look of Ecto-1 even better than I did, all while adding an accessible interior! I can’t wait to see people enjoying it when it’s released come June

Here is the set description from the LEGO Cuusoo blog

This fun and iconic vehicle from the blockbusting ‘80s movie is fully loaded with all the paranormal detection equipment needed to track down those ghastly ghosts. It also features cool Ghostbusters logo decoration, removable roof, tracking computer and seats for 3 minifigures.

Interview: The Australian Behind LEGO Ghostbusters

This morning we got news about the latest product to come from the LEGO Cuusoo website, but that news was particularly exciting for one Brisbane LEGO fan. Brent Waller is the man behind the project, and he has spoken to Bricking Around about his creation. 

LEGO CUUSOO Fall 2013 Review Results


The official LEGO CUUSOO  blog has just released a video with a detailed overview of the latest review. This was the largest review yet, and while some people may be disappointed that some things didn’t pass we do have a new set to look forward to!

LEGO Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary has passed the review and will become a product

When this project first hit 10,000 votes we said that this would have a high chance of passing review and we are really excited to see what the final product will be.

Other results are contained in the video below.

Ghostbusters Reaches LEGO Cuusoo Review

LEGO Ghostbusters Minifigures

When people talk about classic movies from the 1980′s that now have a cult following there are two names that really stand out. The first is Back To The Future and the second is Ghostbusters.

Marty McFly has already made the leap from the silver screen to the LEGO world, and he could soon be joined by Peter Venkman and his ghost busting colleagues. BrentWaller’s Ghostbusters project recently hit the required 10,000 votes and we think it stands a pretty good chance of passing review.

Ghostbusters has a very similar vibe to the Back To The Future project – they are both classic films that are fun and fairly inoffensive. The most difficult part of the process will be negotiating the required rights.

So what would a potential Ghostbusters set look like? The project featured a great MOC of the team’s converted firehouse office. LEGO is unlikely to produce such a large set for a Cuusoo project. History has shown that they tend to favour smaller sets. The set that is more likely is a recreation of the ECTO-1 and a minifigure lineup of the main characters. BrentWaller gives us a great example of what this would look like.
