Ahead of the release of the new Ghostbusters movie, director Paul Feig (who seems to have made it his personal quest to ensure that a boatload of toys are licensed to the new characters, following the abysmal mess companies have done with female characters like Black Widow, Gamora and Rey) this week announced a Lego set which features all four of the new Ghostbusters, their car, and their receptionist.
Fro left-to-right that’d be Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Melissa McCarthy with the busting packs, along with some kind of demon thing. Chris Hemsworth, who plays their receptionist, is the one on the bike, which is called “Ecto-2”.
Now I don’t like the vehicle sets from Lego – give me a location or set any day – but I do really like how they’ve worked to make the minifigures look like the actresses who play them. The Kristen Wiig figure has a somewhat generic look, from the pictures released, but the other three all look incredibly like the cast. Nice hairpieces! This also continues my belief that Kate McKinnon’s effortlessly going to steal this film.
