I hope your credit card is ready because LEGO is coming out with a new set for one of the year's most anticipated films. Ghostbusters, led by an all-female cast, comes out this summer, and recently we've been getting sneak peeks into Paul Feig's paranormal picture, with pictures of the cast being released earlier this week on the movie's website. Now LEGO is building up the hype to almost biblical proportions, by announcing their new set of figures to accompany the new film.
For $59 this set comes with figures for each one of the new team members: Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates, Kristin Wigg as Erin Gilbert, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan. The set also features tools to battle all the things that go bump in the night and both of the vehicles from the film, the new ECTO-1 car and ECTO-2 motorcycle.
And an added perk to this LEGO package is that Kevin, the Ghostbusters new secretary played by Chris Hemsworth, has his own mini figure, a fair consolation for not having his own Ghostbuster suit. There is also an antagonist for the group to bust, only being referred to as, according to Nerdist.com, "The Daemon." This set of LEGOs won't hit shelves until July 1, roughly 2 weeks before the movies is released.
There isn't much known about the film so far, and how it connects to the original canon set up back in the original film from 1984, but these images do show a possible spoiler for the film. If you look at the Kevin figure riding the ECTO-2, you can see his eyes glowing red, looking very similar to both Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis' characters from the original film when they were (SPOILER ALERT) possessed by the demon gatekeeper Zuul. Could this mean Zuul is making a comeback by preying on the ripped receptionist? We won't know until the film's release in July.
With the film being less than 6 months away, we're just at the beginning of more and more content from this film being released, and if director Paul Feig fulfilling his promises, there should be plenty. Ghostbusters hits theaters on July 15, 2016.
