The LEGO Ghostbusters 21108 is the 6th set to be released by LEGO under the CUUSOO theme.
LEGO CUUSOO is a platform for fans to submit their designs and ideas. Once it achieves a minimum number of votes by the public, the LEGO Group will review and release the set if it meets their criteria.
Ghostbusters is a popular movie from the 80’s where four guys form a team to investigate and solve paranormal activity.
In the show, the Ghostbusters drive a converted Cadillac which used to be an ambulance or hearse. Their ride is named Ecto-1 in the movie.
For the LEGO Ghostbusters 21108 set, it consists of the iconic Ecto-1 Cadillac and minifigures of the four Ghostbusters, Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore.
The price point is higher than some of the past CUUSOO sets but given that there are 4 minifigures and the car is bigger than the Back to the Future Delorean, it is still justifiable.
At least the car is detailed and looks close to the movie. If LEGO lowered the piece count to meet a lower price point, the car may not look as good.
For fans of LEGO cars, this is also a good set to buy for the parts. You can sell away the minifigures to recover some of the cost of the set and use the parts to modify and build your own cadillac.
