Lego just announced the results for the next CUUSOO set. The Lego Review board has approved a Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary set. The other proposals that were looked at included the Female Minifigures set, Poptropica, FTL Spaceships, the Road to Oz, ATLAS mini model, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary. Lego made a good choice and chose the better of the two Ghostbusters sets. Too bad it sounds like they will not be making the handsome headquarters building. Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore are back in action.
Lego specifically mentions the Minifigures and the Ecto-1 for this upcoming set. With a tentative release date of 2014, but no exact month. This is great complimentary set to the recent Back to the Future set. Read more about the Ghostbuster here: http://legogenre.com/lego-ghostbusters-cuusoo-project/

When somethings strange in your Lego drawer, “Who you gonna call? — Ghostbusters!”
BrentWaller has proposed a whole Ghostbusters theme over at Lego Cuusoo in celebration of the films 30th anniversary. Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore would all appear in Minifigure form, along with the ever popular Slimer. No one would expect these guys to capture these ghosts unprepared, so they come with a full set of Proton Packs, PKG Meters, and Ghost Traps.
Not only would you get the whole Ghostbusters team, but their headquarters too. The office is super detailed and surprisingly accurate. Because, of the sheer size and scope of such a build, this would probably be cut from the final set if Lego approves one.
The last piece of the proposal is the Ecto-1, which is one of the most iconic vehicles in film history. Here it has been recreated in full Lego and even features some amazing lighting. The Ectomobile is based off of the 1959 Cadillac Ambulance and is instantly recognizable.
Lego has been open to licensed Cuusoo projects in the past. Especially Back to the Future, which has been approved and is expected to be sold sometime before the end of the year. This is good news for a future Ghostbusters theme. Check it out on the official Cuusoo page: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/36088
