This summer there was controversy over the release of Ghostbusters, with an all female version of the ghoul battling team. Whether you were a fan of this version, or preferred the original, you’ll be pleased to know that Lego have bought a kit just for you.
If you or your kids are into brick building games, than the Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & 2 75828 Building Kit can be a great gift to buy. This brick building game is based on the Ghostbusters movie that premiered in July 2016. It features Ghostbusters mini-figures from the film, scary demon and many ghost-busting accessories.
The set also includes both the Ecto-1 Cadillac type vehicle and Ecto-2 motorcycle. This Ghostbusters brick game is aimed at children aged 8-14 years, although Lego fans of all ages may also find it interesting and kids can recreate scenes from the Ghostbusters movie.
Features of the Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & 2 75828 Building Kit
The Lego Ghostbusters Kit is well designed and the mini-figures closely resemble the 5 main characters in the Ghostbusters movie. The mayhem demon is also well constructed and so is the whole set including the Ecto-1 vehicle and Ecto-2 motorbike.

The Ecto-1 measures 11cm H x 21cm L x 7cm W. Dimensions for Ecto-2 motorcycle is 5cm H x 6m L x less than 2cm wide. In summary, features of this set include:
