The “Ghostbusters” Firehouse Is for Sale

Perhaps taking inspiration from German Lego expert Orion Pax’s version, Lego will release a set for the Hook & Ladder No. 8 firehouse, made famous as the headquarters in Ghostbusters, this January. From Gizmodo’s Leg Godt blog: “The $350, 4,634-piece set fills two floors with a laboratory, living quarters, the requisite ghost containment unit, and nine Minifigs including Peter, Ray, Egon, Winston, Janine Melnitz, Dana Barrett, Louis Tully, the library ghost, and a zombie ghost driver.” Presumably it’ll be available at the Lego store opening at Westfield World Trade Center.

I used to think that Lego should create a set for 56 Leonard; that could still be fun, if it resembled the rendering rather than the actual building. But the local building I’d really like a model of is the Spring Street Salt Shed.

  1. Obviously, 56 Leonard should be a Jenga game
