75828 Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & Ecto-2 has been revealed on Twitter in the last few minutes by Paul Feig, the director of the upcoming film!

The set includes the updated Ecto-1 and the new Ecto-2 motorcycle as well as six minifigures and plenty of ghostbusting equipment. It will be available on the 1st of July and is priced at $59.99 in the US, so will probably cost around £49.99 in the UK based on the pricing of similar licensed sets.

You can take a look at some more images after the break...

All 35 images published can now be viewed on the set details page. Watch out for a potential spoiler for the movie in one of the product shots.

Not excited for the film, but I like this a lot!

It looks good!

And the mandatory dig at a movie no one has seen....

It looks good! Unlike the movie!

Wonder if this Ecto-1 will be a better scale for GBHQ..? Mind you, they managed to fit all four figs in this one..!

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Won't buy it. Not interested in this remake of the movie. And it doesn't look as good as the real ecto-1.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So Ecto-2 is the bike being ridden by glasses-Thor?

Gravatar
By in United States,

This looks great! I guess I will be getting the Firehouse sooner rather than later. I wonder if the new Ecto-1 will fit?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Maybe I'm missing something, but what is Ecto2? Like the set, but you can't beat the original.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

I really hope those curved slope pieces are printed, because they'll be a real pain to apply in a straight line if they're stickers XD

Apart from that, I really like the look of that car and it seems like an awesome build.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Looks fun! Loving the new hairpieces and female heads in particular!
I wish that red gargoyle head didn't have printing on it but the rest of that fig is cool though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is that a trans round 1x with bar on bottom and if so is it a new piece? It looks cool. Overall I'll probably get this set but I still like the first Ecto1 better.

Gravatar
By in United States,

While the original is a classic, I don't see why people won't give this film a chance. It seems like it'll be pretty good, based on this set alone, and if it's awful, at least you tried it. I love the new hairpieces, and the ghost/demon looks insanely cool. Besides, I love anything that'll give me new monster minifigures.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Finally! A 2x2 sloped plate!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Such an awesome set! Instant buy!

Although I do wonder why only two of the Ghostbusters have boots--that's kind of weird. But Kevin more than makes up for that.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Huge pass on this and the film.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm told the Ecto-2 is the bike.

Gravatar
By in United States,

We already knew about that 2x2 wedge plate huh? I'd forgotten, that's an exciting piece. And the hair on people here is great.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Brilliant design. I love the D.I.Y. design sensibilities of the new movie to begin with and am honestly looking forward to it, but beyond that, the designers did a great job improving on the previous Ecto-1 set. The new one has opening doors in the front and back, and seats all four Ghostbusters, despite the overall model being about the same size (approximately 9 by 26 studs). The minifigures are brilliantly detailed and feel very authentic to the characters as we've seen them in promotional images. Overall, I can't see anything about this set that seems worse than the original. It looks very realistic but not the least bit boring.

I don't know the overall piece count, but $60 seems doesn't seem like an unreasonable price, considering that the original Ecto-1 set was $50 and this one makes so many improvements (plus has two more minifigures).

I wonder if Marcos Bessa designed this one as well.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This is why I keep popcorn on standby, let the remake hate flow, because you aint stopping nothin'

Oh and the sets look lovely, definitely picking these up

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

improving the previous ecto 1? you're joking right? maybe im a purist but this looks awful. Will be avoiding this like the plague.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Kevin minifigure's face is perfect for Donald Blake!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Looks good!

I'm seeing transparent headlight bricks used for non other than the headlights! Have we seen these in this colour before?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow! Opening doors AND rear hatch, AND it holds all four characters simultaneously. Really cool.

Gravatar
By in United States,

As the film is a reboot, the car in it is technically still ECTO-1, just a modern day version like the film.

So that leaves ECTO-2 being the motorbike.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The minifigures look great! I think the previous Ecto-1 looks better, but I'm pretty sure that's just because I'm more familiar with it. And this one appears to trump the previous over playability.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

looks like there are alternate torso pieces? Or at least for one figure? Weird.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm not sure I will really care for the movie--even the originals don't do much for me--nor did I bother picking up the original Ecto-1. Just as a parts pack, however, this one has a lot going for it! Depending on price/my budget I may try and pick one up.

@glamdring804: your comment cracked me up!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@justalex81: No, I'm not joking, though if you paid attention to my comment you'd see I'd say it improved on the previous Ecto-1 SET. As in, the old one didn't have working doors or seats for all four Ghostbusters, while this one does without increasing the size.

I don't know if I'd call the new car better than the old one in general, but it's definitely way better than the one from Ghostbusters 2 that was covered in over-the-top lights, patterns, and gimmicks.

@pagani88: Yep, transparent headlight bricks have been around since the Grand Emporium and have been in ten other sets since then: http://brickset.com/sets/containing-part-4215618

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I love this set! The figures, the vehicles and the price all look good to me.

Gravatar
By in Venezuela,

Amazing set

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I love it!! So nice that they managed to fit all four figures in there! I'm getting this. Hope those are indeed printed pieces rather than stickers, though!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@idpullthecurtain

Where do you see an alternate torso?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well. The car's OK... like that it actually fits all the figs and that it comes with Chris Hemsworth's character. But the older one looked better, and I still think this movie is an awful idea. So I'll certainly not be buying it.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

SPOILER ALERT - Looks like 'Kevin' gets possessed at some point in the moive

Gravatar
By in United States,

As a set this Ecto-1 is better.(opening doors, seats 4 minifiguers) the original Ecto-1 is still the best in my opinion.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

YUK - give me the original any day - looks awful

Gravatar
By in Puerto Rico,

It looks like the movie makers are acknowledging the original cast (as it seems that is why that unnamed guy is there) if so then color me intrigued.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

That has a LOT of new pieces and new colours for existing pieces:

- There's a strange 1x1 round plate with a bar underneath it (Trans Clear)
- The aforementioned 2x2 wedge plate (White)

- 1x1 round tile - new in black
- 1x2 ingot tile - new in black
- 1x3 toolbox - new in dark blue
- Skeleton arm - new in red
- Skeleton leg - new in red

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Aanchir: Oh well, they're still cool!

@Paperballpark: finally! 1x1 round tiles in black! I've needed those for a while! I hadn't noticed those before.

Gravatar
By in United States,

That's the gargoyle headpiece, no? Wonder if that will be used for the upcoming imp/cartoon devil as well? It seems ideal.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This looks great! I couldn't quite pull the trigger on the first Ecto-1 set, so I doubt I will on this one, but it's just as tempting. I just can't buy sets that I know I won't want to disassemble eventually.

I just tried to find a trailer for the new Ghostbusters movie, as from the comments people have been making I assumed there had to be one. But there isn't one yet, so I find it extremely odd that people are saying it looks awful already. Can't even wait for a trailer, let alone reviews or the actual movie before passing judgement on it, bizarre.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@ Idpullthecurtain, there are 5 minifig torsos, each character is a unique print.
Love the new parts, good to see the gargoyle bits back for another round. I think the white 2x2 slopes are printed, but can see plenty of stickers as well. GB emblem on bike is definitely a sticker, with a clear background.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Lordmoral: The guy is named Kevin, and neither his character or actor have any connection to the original films-in fact, nothing will, given that this is a complete reboot without an established continuity. However, some of the original actors are making cameos (presumably in new roles), which seems to break the idea of a new universe by being referential to the older films.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Another new color for a part - the 1x1 round plate with hole in light bluish gray on the top rear. That will be a popular part for greeblers.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Privatematrix, the female blonde character is pictured with two different torsos. There is a torso with a strap/bandolier as well as the regular one (she also is pictured with 3 different head sculpts). Looks like there are two versions of her?

Maybe we are seeing two different sets here?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@Paperballpark: I could be wrong, but I think that new 1x1 clear round with the bar in the bottom was also seen in the upcoming Spider-Man sets, attached on to the new webbing pieces.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am digging the new hair pieces and heads. Not interested in the movie at all, but may pick up the set for the figs.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

A set from a film that no-one wants. I'll pass, I think. I'll be quite happy with set 21108, and when I can afford it, 75827.

(The makers of this new film could have gone for a Ghostbusters team consisting of two men and two women. But, no, they had to go to the PC extreme and make it an all female team. But that's not the only reason I'm opposed to this new film. It's a remake of a classic film that no-one wants, and I'm willing to bet that the jokes and script will be nowhere near as funny as the 1984 film. In 30 years, the 1984 film will still be considered a classic. No-one will remember the 2016 remake.)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like the look of this set and I'm looking forward to the new movie. I have a feeling this will be the Gaurdians of the Galaxy/Jurassic World set for summer 2016...meaning it will be relatively easy to find before the movie release, but then impossible for stores to keep on the shelf after Ghostbusters is released.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Eh. Don't really like the old Ghostbusters, won't see this one. Skip.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Did anyone noticed the headlights? The pieces with the stud on the side.... they aviable in transparent white now! How cool...

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Great-looking set but I think most would rather just get the one that has been a classic movie vehicle for 30 years. If the new movie is well-received (and isn't the carbon copy it's currently looking like), perhaps this one will gain more popularity.

That said, those 2-long wedge pieces are VERY welcome, and those handles with a stud (used for those cannisters) could also end up being incredibly useful. Not to mention, round 1x1 tiles in black!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I suppose my only problem with the film will be the needless references to the original GB, which never happened in this one's universe. The logo and even the car would logically be different in a reboot, and the cast cameos will make no sense, either. However, people are selling it short on the basis of its leads and its existence, just because the original was "untouchable" (this film is not supposed to be connected, anyway) and because it's too PC. It'll probably be a decently entertaining film at worst, so there's no need for all of the visceral hate and close-mindedness.

More on topic, Dimensions sets based on the reboot have been confirmed by sources on Eurobricks.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Two of the actresses are really fat but they've been depicted here with the same annoying black lines that Lego keeps using to fake an hourglass shape. But then again, it's politically incorrect to acknowledge it when a woman is fat.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

This seems like a great set. I didn't pick up the first version, but this version not only holds all four, but looks like it has more useful parts and a better look in general. Plus, I really love the tr. smoke gargoyle wings. Definitely getting it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

LOL we get a look at a movie through a lego set instead of a trailer first!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@KLF I'd assume it is a Cadillac.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm ordering this the day it comes out! I'm so excited for the movies and wow, Chris Hemsworth has a fantastic minifigure! Melissa MaCarthey's facial print is more than a little creepy...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@8BrickMario: The point of a reboot is to re-imagine the source material. There's no reason things like logos need to be the same, necessarily, but there's also no reason they need to be different. For comparison's sake, it's sort of like how Ultron has the same name and a similar look between the Marvel comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe despite having been invented by totally different people (Hank Pym in the comics, Tony Stark in the movies).

I don't know what context the original cast cameos will be in exactly. But TV Tropes has a whole page for this particular type of cameo, with lots of similar examples: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RemakeCameo It's usually just meant as a harmless reference for those in the know.

@yellost

Look closely at the pic you can tell they are decals and not printed pieces

Gravatar

@8BrickMario

" I love anything that'll give me new monster minifigures."
Same here!

"hate and close-mindedness."
About the film or political correctness in general? Oh, hang on...

@8BrickMario
@trennerdios

Exactly! People just like to complain, I guess. At least give the film a chance. If people spend their time talking about a franchise by constantly going on about how much the next installment will suck, it means they won't enjoy it no matter what happens, and it just ruins it for people who just want to watch movies they think they'll potentially like.

@Sabreman64
"A set from a film that no-one wants. I'll pass, I think."
I get really tired of people in fandoms applying their thoughts to everyone else, its really rude. Speak for yourself.

"But, no, they had to go to the PC extreme and make it an all female team."

'A team of four men live in a world with ghosts.' 'Absolutely!'
'These men can capture the ghosts in little boxes.' 'Oh, I'll believe that!'
An ancient god is real and about to take over the world!' 'I'll buy that, yeah.'
'There's a giant made of marshmallow, and in the second one the Statue of Liberty walks!' 'Yeah, believable.'
'Now a team of women are catching ghosts.' 'Woah, woah! I can't believe that at all! What the-"

All joking aside, it is amazing this has to be pointed out in 2016.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^It's called a self-fulfilling prophecy..

Either way, I always welcome new prints. Heck, these ladies will accompany the original squad in the GIANT HQ set as far as I'm concerned.

The vehicle looks decent. The figures look great, at least compared to the source material. I'm sure it will grow on me. But to have new face prints with new hairstyles, I welcome that.

I will definitely get the set. I may watch the movie, but not in the theater. (granted I haven't been to the theater in a long time...)

And the blonde lady does have two different torso prints, so that is interesting.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The alternate outfit and head may be Holtzmann's appearance in the Dimensions sets, since I doubt they'd give us two outfits for her in one set.

I have a degree of faith in this film. A bad movie never hurt anyone, and this is deliberately being disassociated with the original continuity so as not to "ruin" the originals. If you don't like the movie, grow up and get on with your life. At least it gave us some nice sets!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@8BrickMario: I like your attitude. It's not like we were ever going to get another movie with the original cast since Harold Ramis is dead and Bill Murray has gone on the record saying he doesn't want to star in a third Ghostbusters movie. So why not try something new? Worst case scenario, it'll flop and people will just collectively choose to ignore it. It won't make the original any less of a classic. And it's not like the Ghostbusters franchise has never disappointed anybody before.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Im slightly torn between the idea of a female ghostbusters film , but then again i do like this design and figure ill buy it to go with my Firehouse and ecto 1 . i look at it as the boys have "hired" extra staff to help bust ghosts

Gravatar
By in Australia,

two stud long angled plate. Looks like there's a bunch of them in this set. That's kinda cool, I guess. Can't say its a piece I've ever needed, but its nice that one exists now.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I think that it will be a fun movie in the vein of the original. The Cadillac Hearse is pretty nicely represented. I just de-ghosted my original ECTO-1 to have a classic 59 Cadillac Ambulance. My own MOC on that set included a drop down rear gate for the proton packs, so I am happy to see the new one has opening doors. I will probably try to retrofit the new instructions into the old set.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

As soon as I saw this I was disappointed, only because the original Ecto 1 can't take two minifigures side by side like this vehicle! Why couldn't they make Ecto 1 more like this???!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

im really angry at lego for discontinuing ldd because their really slapping mocers in the face for making many new pieces and never going to update ldd, wish they just have a small team updating every year as a side project.

(there a new 2x2 angle piece is the reason for this rant)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm excited for this set. Looks fantastic.

As for the movie, Paul Feig is a great director and these actors are some of the funniest people on the planet. Hey, if it's a bad movie, it's a bad movie and that's too bad. But the negativity before so much as a trailer has been released is...weird.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Someone asked the make of the car - I'm pretty sure it's a 1983-84 Cadillac DeVille.

It's kind of cool that they chose a late malaise era car, as (real) American cars from this era are cheap as chips and it might spark a bit of interest in the era.

As for the movie, I have no opinions at all really. I hope it's good if anything.

8BrickMario - please don't tell people to 'grow up' just because they aren't keen on the film. Folks are as equally entitled to look forward to it or be skeptical and critical, and one or the other isn't in need of added maturity.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I don't understand comments like this: "The makers of this new film could have gone for a Ghostbusters team consisting of two men and two women. But, no, they had to go to the PC extreme and make it an all female team."

Seems like people have no problems with an all male team, but an all female team is suddenly the "PC extreme". An all female team should be considered just as normal as an all male team.

Anyway: nice set!

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@TheAuk To be fair, we probably all need to grow up, we are all playing with children's toys after all, haha.

To each their own with the movie; I'll remain cautiously optimistic until I see a trailer or footage to judge.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I never saw the original movie properly (watching it without sound on a transatlantic flight when I couldn't be bothered to pay for a headset surely doesn't count), doubt I will watch the remake, but like the set quite a bit. I like the improved seating and storage abilities of Ecto-1 and the female minifigures are a treat! Now I'll have to get the HQ set too....

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Nice set but a no go for me. There is only 1 ecto-1 and that is the original version to me!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I only say "grow up" because a lot of the dislike for the film is unfounded and biased, at a time where we know very little about what it will be like. Many of the detractors are acting immature with their judgement, that's all.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

When Lego produce a range of sets, they usually distribute the major characters among them (For instance, you had to buy 3 sets to get all the main Scooby Doo characters). Since this set contains all of the main characters, I'm wondering if that means it'll be the only one? And if that is correct, will we see more of Lego releasing single set IP themes, rather than jumping in with a whole range for a movie that winds up doing poorly, like The Lone Ranger?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Better be an all lesbian team.

On a more constructive note - those White 2x2 angled plates are actually two new different parts.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

chrisaw - lol! Point well taken...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Something about this misses for me. The set may grow on me, but at this stage, it will be a pass.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hate that the simulated supports on the side of the WINDSHIELD appear to be STICKERS. Like many others, I hate applying stickers to transparent elements and this will be no exception.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm rather annoyed that this set is better than the Ideas Ecto-1. However, the set is superb compared to the Ideas Ecto-1. My only complaint regarding this set is the pearl silver bulb on the hood of the vehicle. It looks out of place; a pearl silver trophy statuette would have been much more optimal than the bulb, in my opinion.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Definitely won't be buying this. Why Hollywood continue to 'reboot' films is pathetic...its called 'we don't have any fresh ideas so simply remake something that made a hell of a lot of money to make us some money as well'...I'm amazed theres folk here who say 'give the remake a chance'...its just feminist twoddle, re-assigning the genders....zzzzzzzzzz gimmie a break...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@sf1378, I couldn't agree more. Hollywood is getting really lazy, it's really not that hard. Movie looks like rubbish.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is it strange I am most excited about the printed slopes and those hubcap parts? Anyone just want the figs? I'll split with you!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Love the new Ecto-1 especially now it can accommodate 4 minifigs. I'm keeping an open mind on the film, but it will never become as iconic as the original which I grew up with. Shame there are stickers rather than printed pieces.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I Hate 2 say this but, Ecto-1 Jr. is truly the daughter of the original Ecto-1 herself.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks like a good set, and seems a good Lego version of the new movie Ecto-1. But, I'll stick with my Ideas version of the original. Although, I may want the set for the minifigures. The torso and leg prints look great.
