Haunted mansions in the Luigi (and Mario) video game series always seem to be infested with Boos. These poltergeists are actually really shy, and cannot stand to be looked at. But, one Boo in particular has a bit more courage than the rest. This Lego King Boo is created by Vaionaut, who built this little MOC as an entry in the RogueOlympics. He features his trademark crown, and lazy tongue. This King Boo has a tongue that is actually an old style Minifigure cape, his scepter is a Sonic Screwdriver, and even has a One Ring crowning his… crown. So grab a vacuum cleaner and find some courage, this boss is ready to fight.
The upcoming Ghostbusters film is getting its first Lego set. The new Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & Ecto-2 (75828) is ready to go. The set features some awesome new pieces, including more Lego hair. You can never have enough Lego hair. It will be on shelves on July 1st 2016 for $59.99 USD. This puts it at $10 more then the original Lego Ideas set, but you do get 2 additional minifigures. I have a feeling that this set will be right at home in the Firehouse Headquarters.
The set features the Ghostbusters Erin Gilbert, Abby Yates, Jillian Holtzmann, Patty Tolan and Kevin. Plus some sort of red devil.
There is going to be a new Lego Minecraft wave of sets released. The summer 2015 sets will arrive in August (although you will probably see them pop up a week or two early). It looks like there will be 2 smallish sets, and 2 large sets. It is interesting that there are no small impulse buy sets. The Lego Minecraft line is not the most affordable, and this release continues that trend. Two of these new sets will see the first Minifigures of Alex. The female counterpart to Steve. Maybe someday she will be able to sell a set all my herself. The new Snow Golem looks extremely goofy, and it’s good to see the famous Minecraft Wolf represented. The big mystery (at least for me) is the 154 graffitied all over the Nether set. If you know what it means, let me know in the comments.
The Dungeon (21119) is the smallest set and comes with Steve and 2 Zombies.
The Snow Hideout (21120) is a medium sized modular set with Steve, a Creeper and the all new Snow Golem.
The Desert Outpost (21121) is a large modular set, with Alex, Steve, a Wolf, and 2 Skeletons.
Finally, the big set this summer is The Nether Fortress. Featuring Alex, Steve, a Zombie Pigman, a Ghast, and Blaze.
Be on the lookout in August for these new Lego Minecraft sets.
It is that time of the year where all the ghosts and ghouls come out and play with Lego. These super cute Lego Halloween decorations are the creation of nobu_tary. These brick built figures are dressed up as a Werewolf and Witch. The details are all well considered. For instance the SNOT style building, which is a Halloween approved acronym. The end result are two very cartoonish Lego figures full of character.
Also included, are a handful of other Halloween builds. Two of the more adorable and simple ghosts are ready to scare any trick-or-treators. The sausage based mouth is ingenious. There is also a huge bat (giving off Batman vibes) and a light-up jack-o-lantern.
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. Make sure to watch the full review below:
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.
“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.”
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.
