Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot is gearing up for its summer release, and along with newly released promotional images, it now has original LEGO merchandise to boot! As has been the case with recent toy releases, these new figurines and their accessories may have inadvertently revealed some important plot details that have since been kept under wraps.
The LEGO set carries the ECTO-1 car, the ECTO-2 bike, and plenty of equipment for the four main characters. The set also includes Chris Hemsworth's character Kevin—with a "possessed" side—and gives us a first look at a character named Daemon, presumably the movie's villain.
Check out the following images released to get a closer look at the characters:
The full set
Both vehicles actually roll and ECTO-1 has plenty of room for the team's equipment in the back.
Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy)
All four characters have attachable proton packs, of course.
Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon) and Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones)
I might just buy this set because LEGO absolutely nailed McKinnon and Jones's hair.
A two-faced Kevin (Chris Hemsworth) and the ECTO-2 Bike
Based on the fact that his name tag looks like it's taped onto his jumpsuit as opposed to sewed on like the other team members, it's clear that the Ghostbusters' secretary wants to get in on the action. I imagine he will play a role that's a mix between Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) and Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts) from the original films.
Kevin and Daemon
This image gives us a better look at Kevin's "possessed" face. I'd wager he becomes the victim of the character Daemon. While it seems clear Daemon is the main antagonist, he may just be a big bad ghost, and not the real threat. Maybe Kevin grows tired of being the team's unappreciated secretary and ends up playing more of a villainous role! Only time will tell.
Even if you're not entirely sold on the movies, this LEGO set is pretty cool. The set will be available starting July 1 and will retail for $59.99.
The new 'Ghostbusters' will reach theaters on July 15, 2016.
