Ideas #006: 21108 - Ghostbusters Ecto-1

Recommended Posts

Even though I haven't really watched Ghostbusters, I will buy and support this set for one reason, and one reason only, the printed pieces, and the high quality box and instruction manual. Mostly the printed pieces, I hate stickers. It isn't because I can't put them on, it's just that after awhile they just like to peal off, prints from the Classic Space age are still here today!

Can't wait for this set. I usually wait to buy a set I want for my personal collection until it is on sale at least 20% off somewhere but on this one, I might have to get my personal copy day one. It's such a great looking set.

Well, it looks like someone already MOC'd the Ghostbuster fire house to sell.  Actually, this guy says this was built from the original CUUSOO designer's instructions.

I am surprised by the lack of interior detail, especially for the kind of money that the auction is up to.

I'm also surprised by that. I would have expected a lot of interior details for that kind of price.

They aren't bidding on the building.  It's all for the Hot Dog Stand.  The building is just gravy.

I haven't looked at the "original" instructors for the cuusoo listing (I didn't even know they were available) -- but I find it hard to imagine you couldn't bricklink this for less.  Or are those dark red pieces particularly rare?

Nobody should be panic buying the Ecto-1,or when they see the Sold Out sign on Lego, lego know's that they have a Gold Mine on this set. since its a License Movie Piece it will be out at least a year, just like the Back to the Future Set. "So Don't Panic" You will have plenty time to get as many as you want.

I think the only panic buying you may be seeing on this set initially are all of us that want to build this thing as soon as it comes out!

Panic buying? No. Quick flipping in US? Very likely.

The set will probably run out in a few days in the US. Then people can flip some of their sets for a nice profit for a couple weeks and then it will come back in stock.
