First Images of 'Ghostbusters' LEGO Ecto-1 Set Hitting Shelves in June

Just last month, we learned that LEGO had officially approved the custom Ecto-1 vehicle set inspired by the iconic vehicle from Ghostbusters, after it was put up for approval by the custom LEGO community Cuusoo. However, so far the only pictures we've seen were of the set as it was proposed to LEGO. With the Toy Fair happening in New York City, we have the first official images of the new LEGO set arriving in June of this year, just in time for the film's 30th anniversary. As we hopes, not only does the set include the vehicle itself, but also all four of the Ghostbusters. Sadly, there's no sign of Slimer being included though.
Here's the first official images of the LEGO Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters via Collider:
The LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 will have 508 pieces and will run a retail price of $49.99 in the United States. Is there a chance this could yield more Ghostbusters LEGO sets like the firehouse? That would be pretty damn great. Or perhaps now that the Ghostbusters are under the LEGO brand name, they could pop up in the gestating sequel to The LEGO Movie to join the likes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars and DC Comics superheroes like Batman in the LEGO world. In the meantime, we can't wait to put this alongside our Back to the Future DeLorean time machine LEGO set later this year. Pretty cool, right?

I'd really appreciate this if I was a 5-year-old child...

Yeah, because adults can't appreciate cool toys based on the movies from their childhood. I mean, what kind of world would this be if adults could have fun like kids, right?

If you want to spend money on stupid shit like this, more power to you... I guess.

They are much more detailed than I thought they would be. Need Slimer. Want Slimer.

Hopefully all 4 mini figs fit inside the Ecto-1, unlike the BTTF DeLorean (though based on the photos it seems unlikely). Where's Slimer?!

Awesome! Hopefully the Venkman minifig doesn't back out before relase. *cough
