The Ghostbusters ECTO-1 Creator Expert Lego Set 10274 is described as the “largest and most detailed” version of the ECTO-1 yet. The number of bricks involved and the range of features suggests that this is completely true. This might be the most difficult Ghostbusters model yet. There is a really nice look to the model too that means that it looks like it came straight from the set. There is an immediate appeal here with the classic shape of the car, the logo on the door, and a range of fun gadgets on the top. While it is unclear precisely how these relate to the story of the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie, players should have great fun putting them together and figuring them out.
This set is a great choice for Ghostbusters fans as well as those that love good vehicle builds.
One of the other selling points here for LEGO collectors is the focus on the build of the car, rather than just the features that make it a movie prop. There are lots of keen LEGO fans with an interest in vehicle builds that will love the attention to detail here. The interior, in particular the engine, is based on the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor that was converted into the Ecto-1. This gives the build some realism that takes it to another level.
Of course, this wouldn’t be the Ecto-1 without all of the other great features and moving parts to track and capture ghosts. There is a lever on the roof that activates a ghost trap, a tracking system for psychokinetic activity, a rotating gunner seat, and much more. There is also a little mini model of a remote vehicle that the characters use in the movie. This adds a touch of fun and creative gameplay for younger players.
Lose yourself in this challenging LEGO Creator build before the movie arrives.
While there is something here for different age groups, thanks to those interactive elements and the fun concept, this Ghostbusters ECTO-1 Creator Expert Lego Set 10274 is also an 18+ model . This means that it will take some time and patience to get all it all together, and there are more than 2000 pieces in this set. With that said, this is a great challenge to keep you entertained over the winter months and a great holiday gift for keen builders and Ghostbusters fans.
