Rounding out all the toys I picked up from the Ghostbusters, here's the LEGO set featuring Ecto 1 and Ecto 2. Naturally, the main attraction here is the new Ecto 1, which is based on a hearse rather than the classic ambulance version. It's a pretty detailed build, with a lot of small pieces. This improves on the original LEGO Ecto 1 by having enough room to seat two figures side by side and having opening doors, although it is apparently at the expense of side windows. The stripes along the side are broken up because the printing doesn't extend across the entire brick, which is kind of disappointing. Overall though, it's pretty cool.
The minifigures naturally include all the team, as well as Kevin. There is also the "mayhem" ghost that they fight in the theater. All the human characters have two faces on their heads. The proton packs do make them somewhat back heavy, but they can stand up while wearing them if they are leaning forward. The Ecto 2 is there for Kevin to ride as well. It's not super involved, but there are some tech bits on the back.
