Barely a week after a Toys â€œRâ€ Us store in Canada leaked the possible existence of the Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters, the actual set has officially been revealed by Lego itself via the companyâ€™s Twitter and Facebook accounts this morning.
It looks like Lego had some extra fun with the new setâ€™s reveal by photographing it in front of the now famous Hook & Ladder 8 firehouse in New York which served as Ghostbusters headquartersâ€”at least for exterior shotsâ€”in the original movie.
Available starting in January (sadly a month too late for Christmas) the $350, 4,634-piece set fills two floors with a laboratory, living quarters, the requisite ghost containment unit, and nine Minifigs including Peter, Ray, Egon, Winston, Janine Melnitz, Dana Barrett, Louis Tully, the library ghost, and a zombie ghost driver.
Slimer is also here, included as a trio of non-Minifig ghosts that can be mounted all over the building, and the entire structure opens up for easy play access. Other features of note include the firefighterâ€™s pole that Ray fell in love with, and if you look closely, even mood slime bubbling up through cracks in the sidewalk. All thatâ€™s missing is a giant sailor made of marshmallow to make this new set absolutely perfect.
