In the cinematic versions of the Ghostbusters, the Ecto-1 started out life as a 1959 Cadillac. Tony Bovkoon has taken a different car out for the same ride, instead decking out a Vaz Lada 2104 from the 1980’s. This amazing cosplay has the classic color and accessories of the movie vehicle, and features a detailed interior that shows the love this creation had, inside and out.
Those look like custom stickers on the hood and doors and on the “HEKTO 1” license plate, which is an amusing pun (некто in Russian stands for “someone”). Nice details that take this model to the next level.

Your LEGO sales guide for November is a real blast to the past with the Ghostbusters ECTO-1 revival from the 80s and upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie. Also swooping in is Tim Burton’s Batwing from 1989, and taking off once again into space is the return of the LEGO Ideas retired product Saturn V with a new set number 92176 with all the same goodness from the original release in 2017. Last but not least, it’s all sunny days as you get lost, and find your way to Sesame Street. Making a return is also the LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle from 2018.

When there’s something strange in the LEGOhood, who you gonna call? Darren Thew, that’s who! The Ecto 1 has been modeled in LEGO bricks many times before, but Darren takes things to a new level with a massive version of the beloved vehicle from Ghostbusters. He has taken great care in striving for authenticity, from every minute detail on the roof to the use of System and Technic parts to form the curvaceous shape of the retrofitted 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor.
