The Ghostbusters Ecto-1 is undeniably one of the most iconic vehicles in movies. They were able to make an ambulance/hearse very popular. The original model (Miller Meteor) is a very hard car to find without breaking the bank. I know, cuz I’ve been looking for one for years.

This Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1 is based on the new Ghostbusters Afterlife movie that is due to hit theaters in 2021. Afterlife is a direct sequel to the original movies. They seem to be ignoring the 2016 movie.

The one thing I noticed about this build is the absence of any mini-figs. Not sure if it is a licensing thing or if they don’t want to spoil something from the movie. Either way, this is the first big set I’ve done with zero mini-figs. They did include a cool throwback to the original movie that I forgot to show in the video. There is a bag of StayPuft marshmallows on the front seat.

This was not a difficult build, but it was still very enjoyable. Any Ghostbusters fan would be proud to have this in their collection.
