Ghostbusters

created by TeeKay on 2012.01.12

Main Section
Ghostbusters is one of the most profitable franchise of all time! With a third movie in the works, now would be an amazing time for the release of a Ghostbuster set. With your support, the ECTO-1 with the four Ghostbusters and their equipment could be made into an official LEGO set!

Minifig-sized ECTO-1 model! Yep, they all fit inside! If this ever gets made into a real kit, it will get totally revamped by a professional LEGO builder—like all other Cuusoo projects so far!

Features of this current model:
- fairly accurate representation of the real ECTO-1, as seen in the movie!
- fits all four Ghostbusters!
- the back opens up to allow quick access to the stretcher that holds the proton packs
- extra equipment included! Two walkie-talkies, goggles for Ray, and a ghost trap!

Egon Spengler: The brains; never smiles
Ray Stantz: The heart; childlike enthusiasm
Peter Venkman: The mouth; confident and "charming"
Winston Zeddemore: The guy who wasn't on the posters. Seriously, what's up with that.

Here's an idea: The Ghostbusters HQ PLAYSET!

If made, It should come with all four Ghostbusters (probably with different suits), as well as:
- Walter Peck (shown above)
- Dana
- Janine
- Gozer
- and maybe more?

The inside of the HQ will have the storage facility, at least one fire pole, a desk for Janine, and plenty of other things you'll remember from the movie. Tons of stuff to play with!

Slimer would be great, but moulds are very expensive, so that part may never happen.

LEGO Review Results for Ghostbusters

2014.01.30

First and foremost, congratulations to TeeKay for reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO, and toward everyone for all of the support of the Ghostbusters project! The results of the LEGO Review are in and you can see full details on the LEGO CUUSOO Blog.

Review Results for Ghostbusters
Our team has thoroughly considered the possibility of releasing this project as a LEGO set according to the criteria of the LEGO Review. Unfortunately the LEGO Review Board has decided that we will not produce this project as a set.

We had a special case during this review period: two projects based on the movie Ghostbusters reached 10,000 supporters within the same review period. At the time, we hadn’t fully considered a case like this. Our team looked both at both the immediate choice at hand and also at the precedent our decision sets for the future of the LEGO CUUSOO community.

Ultimately we chose to base this LEGO CUUSOO set on the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary project for two reasons; this project reached 10,000 supporters first, and our designers decided to base our upcoming set on the car model from that project. To clarify future cases, we’ve added a Guideline that states if two projects are based on a similar concept, we will consider the project that reaches 10,000 supporters first. See our FAQ for more information on this decision.

Thank you to TeeKay for the passion and creativity that went into this project, and to all of you who voted so that we would have the opportunity to consider this as a potential LEGO set. We’re sorry to deliver this disappointing news.

How do we arrive at our decisions?
By gaining 10,000 supporters, a fan-submitted project moves from the Idea Stage to the Review Stage, where it earns the opportunity to be considered as a future LEGO® set in a process called the “LEGO Review.” Gaining 10,000 Supporters is just the first step in this process.

A "LEGO Review Board" composed of professional set designers, product managers, marketing representatives, and other key team members examine each qualified project. They build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product; including factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product, including those developed internally, goes through a similar process and must meet the same standards.

The amount of time this takes varies due to all the factors involved. Unfortunately, this process sometimes means that well-conceived projects that gain just-as-passionate followings have to be turned down. Please note that the LEGO Review Board makes all final decisions on which new sets the LEGO Group will release based on CUUSOO projects.

Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, TeeKay!

Congratulations on reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. Your work provides a great approach to consider a LEGO set based on Ghostbusters.

It's unprecedented to have two projects based on the same licensed property in the same LEGO Review period. While we don't yet know what the outcome will be, we're very pleased to see the collaborative spirit demonstrated between both Ghostbusters project creators.

Ultimately, Ghostbusters fans have spoken loud and clear by supporting your work. We're looking forward to evaluating this project during the next LEGO Review.

What happens now?
This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A "LEGO Review Board" composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We'll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product. This includes factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.

The LEGO Review Begins in September
This project qualifies for the quarterly review beginning in September. For more information about the quarterly review process, see this blog post.

The review is a thorough process and from its start, and can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on the “Ghostbusters” concept.

When the review is complete, we will inform you of our decision. If green-lit, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This also takes several months.

We will post follow-up information and our decision here.

Dear TeeKay,

Congratulations on passing the halfway point on LEGO CUUSOO!

This is a strong project as it is focused on the iconic ECTO-1 from the Ghostbusters series, and would make a great commemorative set.

Best wishes as you continue on your journey to achieving 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO.

Congratulations on achieving over 500 supporters! Great model of the ECTO-1, especially. You did a great job capturing the customized Cadillac into minifig scale. It would indeed be fun to create a commemorative Ghostbusters LEGO set, so best of luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!

The LEGO CUUSOO Team


Note: If your idea is selected, the LEGO Group will make the final decision on how your proposed product should be produced, the final design, applicable licenses, production run size, sales channels, etc. Please understand that our comments here do not have an effect on the LEGO Review that will take place if the project reaches 10,000 supporters.
