Excellent video. Excellent set.

Great video, and amazing set! This will become my favourite set ever after 10179.
About number of details, it is by far better than the modular buildings.
Just a little disappointed for the stickers

O.M.G. that set is huge. I can't wait till March, I gotta get the Brick Bank first.

Does the sidewalk match the modular buildings?

Great set, great video. Can't wait to get one. Should have been printed bricks though.

I still prefer the LEGO way of opening the building to the way his MOC does it. The way he parks the Ecto-1 is strange. I assume it actually goes through the doors.

If you park it through the doors they probably won't close anymore. And when closed they won't open with the Ecto-1 inside.
It's a real conundrum! :-)

Come on 1st Jan, come on!!!

Great vid. Pass on the set though; without wishing to re-start the debate I'm still annoyed by the stickers.

I'm ready for January. Between this and the brick bank it will definitely be an EPIC month.

OMG. I don't know anymore. I don't like GB and I hate stickers. But I love huge sets so much and this looks like the best build ever.

Is there some irony in that bold text? :D

By in United Kingdom,

I've built Sergio's MOC and can confirm that it's a dilemma how to display with Ecto-1 inside as the doors either have to be open or closed. As it stands at the moment I've got the doors closed with Ecto inside to protect it from dust :)

^^ Sarcasm rather than Irony?

So he accepted a free set. Rather undermines his whining about the whole subject.

Holy heck that thing is huge. Half a gorilla in Australian dollars. I'm not paying that much just to get Venkman's hair.

Hopefully he stops whinging now since a) there are quite a few differences between hiscset and the official LEGO one and b) he will make money from having the first set review.

Terrible review. I almost don't see interior of this firehouse. Nothing like Jangbricks... :-(

@yuffie, just playing it safe :-)

Great vid! My advice to this guy would be to sell the set before Xmas and buy another in January!

Why are there only three lockers?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Great set aside, this was really a fantastic video. The fact that the time lapse was shot from varying angles is something that many videos like this lack, and helps this one stand apart!

What a terrible thing... he's wearing a Ghostbusters 2 jacket. TERRIBLE ;-) !! Great set, good review.

If there's one set to buy next year then this is it for me, it looks AMAZING!!
Need to start selling some junk to get the money for it!!
Great video by the way, no wonder he had to change his T shirt, he must sweat like a pig with his arms moving that fast!!

O dear Vitruvius, that Box is crazy and here i was thinking 60097 had a Big Box,
but this is so big... i know it was going to be Big, but you just can not prepare your self for the Size.

i am going to get this, it not like set 10188 Death Star, that's a nice set but it is more a playset then a display set, (even if i bet over 67% of all the 10188 set's sold to date have never seen a child hands.) but this HQ set, is Just out of this world. and you know what. i going to try and save up for a 2nd one, Just think of all the MOC you could Build just from this set!

When will Brickset get one to review?

Gravatar
By in United States,

For that price, the ECTO-1 should be able to drive through the doors and park without any modification to the build.

Also as others have point out - needs four lockers, not three.

Looks great, cool video seeing it come together. Would love to have it but will probably be some time before I can spend that kinda $ on Lego.

I honestly really like the way this guy reacted to being offered a set. He made a *bit* of a complaint before the offer, but it looks like he was willing to put that all behind him and just accept the way things were.

Non-Lego stuff aside, this set looks amazing. I don't know much about Ghostbusters so I can't claim to understand why people are complaining about this set, but seriously - TLG churned out a massive set for a relatively low cost (in terms of price per piece) with tons of great details. The Ecto-1 fits inside the thing with the removal of one (ONE) piece of furniture. And four lockers? Look at the way the wall opens/closes! There's no room! Sure, make the whole build 4 studs longer and up the price a twenty dollars or two and get some more complaints. ._.

Wow, I really can't wait for this to come out!

By in Belgium,

Man, I didn't want to get this due to price, but ... hmm.. seeing this build.... Thorougly annoyed by there being stickers on a set at this price point though :(

SQUEEEE!!!!

I love Ghostbusters and LEGO, but I don't know if I can get my hands on $350 in time for release.
