It’s been just about a year since we caught wind of something strange in the neighborhood … in building block form.

Riding high on the coattails of the upcoming 30th anniversary of Ivan Reitman‘s cinematic cult classic Ghostbusters, Lego embarked on one of its crowdsourcing efforts, and landed on Brent Waller’s design of the Ecto-1 as its next project. And they didn’t stop there. Originally, TriBeCa’s Hook & Ladder 8 wasn’t going to be a part of the equation, but lo and behold!

The Ghostbusters’ HQ firehouse includes two floors with a laboratory, living quarters, the requisite ghost containment unit, and nine minifigurines including Peter, Ray, Egon, Winston, Janine Melnitz, Dana Barrett, Louis Tully, the library ghost, and a zombie ghost driver. Lego even took the liberty to shoot the promo pics outside of the iconic Hook & Ladder 8 firehouse.

It won’t be released until after the holidays – January 2016 – and you’ll shell out a pretty penny for the 4,634-piece set: $350.

We still want to know how it’s possible this guy didn’t make the cut…
