Cade and Brent from 1980s Something have released a full video review for the new Lego Ghostbusters (21108) set. It is a 17+ minute review covering all of the tiny details. A favorite part is the time lapse build of the Ecto-1. This set looks incredibly detailed and surprisingly complicated. Lego Ghostbusters (21108) will be released in June with a $49.99 price tag.

DrDaveWatford has posted one of the first reviews of the new Lego CUUSOO (Lego Ideas) set over at Brickset. The Lego Ghostbusters review (21108) features a detailed look at the packaging, Ecto-1 vehicle, and Minifigures. The set will be released in June with a $49.99 price tag. Based on the part list in the instruction booklet it looks like Lego Ghostbusters will come with an estimated 481 pieces.
It should be noted that this Lego Ghostbusters set is a little bit smaller then the original proposal, but the end result still looks great. No odd changes here, like there was in the Lego Back to the Future DeLorean. This build is heavily reliant on SNOT (Studs Not On Top) techniques which allow the Ecto-1 to keep a sleek appearance. A great accomplishment for Lego. The Ecto-1 is able to hold 3 of the 4 Ghostbusters comfortably, and can probably hold all 4 with some modifications.
The Lego Ghostbusters set is packaged like the previous Lego CUUSOO and Architecture sets. With a high quality box that opens up from the top. It also contains a perfect-bound softcover booklet style instruction manual. Filled with Ghostbusters quotes, trivia, and history. Coming in at over 100 pages, these instruction manuals are a huge feature for these sets.
It is also notable that this set comes with a few rare pieces, and even some exclusive pieces. The best inclusion is all of the printed parts. There are no stickers in this set.
The Minifigures are all recognizable. Lego changed Peter Venkman’s hair cut for the official release. Egon Spengler, Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore all feature exclusive printed torsos and unique heads. The end result is an extremely cute set of Ghostbusters.

Lego is gearing up to release their first Ghostbusters themed set. After the Lego CUUSOO Back to the Future project was accepted and announced the idea of a Ghostbusters themed set gained popularity. The creator of Lego Ghostbusters (21108) is BrentWaller, who has recently proposed a new Ghostbusters set. The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. This guy is huge, and when it is taking over your Lego Modular City, who are you going to call?
This giant gooey monster is not alone, he is being proposed with three accompanying Minifigures. Everybody’s favorite bad guy, Walter Peck. Dana Barrett as the Gatekeeper. And, Louis Tully as the Keymaster. These three are ready to foil whatever plans the Ghostbusters have ready.
- Over 34cm or 13 inches tall
- If I was to use a similar ratio of a human compared to the Stay Puft as there is in the movie, That Marshmallow Man would be 68cm or 27 inches tall, which makes this version exactly half scale compared to a minifig.
- Estimated 1800 Pieces (This could be reduced fairly easily, it was more due to my limited piece library and budget)
- Estimated 60 hours design and build time.”

“I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us.” — Dr. Ray Stantz
It seems that the upcoming Lego Ghostbusters (21108) CUUSOO set will be upon us sooner then expected. At the recent Toy Fair (2014), Lego officially revealed details and photos for the new set. The Lego Ghostbusters (21108) will be available for purchase in June 2014 with a retail price of $49.99. The set will include a very slick looking Ecto-1, and the Ghostbusters themselves: Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Raymond “Ray” Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, and Winston Zeddemore. The original design was done by Brent Waller, and most of his ideas have been persevered here (except for the Firehouse, which is understandably missing).
Not only do the Minifigures have an uncanny resemblance to the Ghostbusters, but the Ecto-1 is almost perfect. It features some SNOT building techniques that really help to preserve the iconic look. A few noticable details are the beautiful Lego blue hoses, and the whip accessory in black.
“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.”
