The Hulkbuster? No. This is the Ghostbuster.

takamichi irie asks the viewer of this creation a very simple, very profound question: what if the Ghostbusters outsourced the creation of their equipment to Tony Stark? Looking past the cross-dimensional travel problems (or maybe this just exists in LEGO Dimensions), we would have something like this:

Ghostbusters got their new weapon from Tony Stark.

Not only is this a great little vignette and the idea behind it is genius, but it uses official sets to create something new. The scene looks to be the lower garage portion of 75827 Firehouse Headquarters and the Ghostbuster is a conversion of the Hulkbuster from 76031 The Hulk Buster Smash.

Amazing LEGO Stop-motion Ghostbusters [Video]

Paul Hollingsworth and the fine folks at Digital Wizards have done it again, bringing us a stop-motion LEGO version of Ghostbusters. This 4:30 minute brickfilm is a labor of love, requiring over 2,000 hours of time for animation, building, lighting, compositing and composing the final product! The opening shot alone, according to the animators, took 12 hours to set up and 6 hours to animate.

All of your favorites make cameos to help the fabulous four battle the terrible (and terribly adorable!) Stay Puft Marshmallow man!

Enjoy!

New LEGO Dimensions packs revealed including Harry Potter, A-Team, Mission Impossible, Adventure Time and Ghostbusters [News]

Who ya gonna call on a tiny phone?

Can’t afford the new LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ set? Never fear. Take a leaf out of ObedientMachine‘s book and build yourself a teeny-tiny microscale version. Immediately recognisable, this is a smart little build. I particularly like the small lintel sticking out above the side door. It’s touches like that which make all the difference in a microscale model.

LEGO Mini Ghostbusters Firehouse

I’ve built some microscale LEGO Ghostbusters myself in the past. I wish my little Ecto-1 had had this firehouse to return home to.

Who ya gonna telegraph? GHOSTBUSTERS!

Cpt. Brick shows us what the Ghostbusters crew might have looked like if they’d been born in London instead of New York, a hundred years earlier. These Victorian gentlemen look ready to tackle ectoplasmic entities as well as pesky librarians. Just don’t cross the steams! That would be bad — nearly as bad as that steampunk pun right there.

Don't Cross the Steams!

LEGO at Toy Fair New York 2016: Wrap-up [News]

The 2016 New York Toy Fair continues through tomorrow, but with the LEGO preview event we attended on Saturday morning, we’re ready to summarize our coverage here at The Brothers Brick. Our friends over at From Bricks to Bothans have also provided excellent coverage of all the licensed themes, so be sure to head over there and check out comprehensive coverage from them (with the event limited to just two hours, we missed a few things while trying to cover everything). Similarly, Joe Meno has also posted photos on Flickr.

The biggest news from Toy Fair was the official unveiling of 75098 Assault on Hoth.

Let’s just say that the reaction from the LEGO Star Wars fan community was … mixed, as illustrated by this useful diagram that’s been circulating on Facebook (we’re trying to dig up the original source — give him or her a shout-out in the comments if you know).

The long-rumored 75827 Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters is finally unveiled this morning.

There’s no accompanying press release as yet, but we do know the set will contain 4,634 pieces and nine minifigures: Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore, Janine Melnitz, Dana Barrett, Louis Tully, Zombie Driver and the Library Ghost.
