FAN CREATION: LEGO GHOSTBUSTERS FIREHOUSE
Lego designer Alex Jones recently put together this mind blowing creation of the Ghostbusters headquarters.
Here’s what Jones had to say about the piece:
“Dr. Peter Venkman: What do you think, Egon? Dr. Egon Spengler: I think this building should be condemned. There’s serious metal fatigue in all the load-bearing members, the wiring is substandard, it’s completely inadequate for our power needs, and the neighborhood is like a demilitarized zone. Dr Ray Stantz: Hey. Does this pole still work? [slides down a fireman's pole] Dr Ray Stantz: Wow. This place is great. When can we move in? You gotta try this pole. I’m gonna get my stuff. Hey. We should stay here. Tonight. Sleep here. You know, to try it out. [Venkman looks at Spengler. Spengler slowly shakes his head. Venkman turns to the real estate agent] Dr. Peter Venkman: I think we’ll take it!” Two months of endless hours watching Ghstbusters 1 & 2 + the real Ghostbusters Animated show i can truly say i know a lot about the building at North Moore Street, New York City. The movie set was in Los Angeles and is seen in plenty of other movies while the outside of the building is in NY. Planning on the interior was a bit confusing in the beginning, because of the fact that in the movies you always see only the garage and first floor. When i played the GHOSTBUSTERS game there are only two floors two, while on the outside the way the windows are you know there is the garage and two floors above. While watching the animated show i found out more about interiorsetups that would work with the model.So Egon´s lab is one of the agreements i had to make. The attetion to detail with some of the features was very important to me and i spend hours on planning through over and over again. The overall weight is about 15 kg and it took me around 2 months building. By far my most detailed building with full interior. So i guess you know who you gonna call now ;)
