LEGO-FIED: Ghostbusters!

I have had a cold for a few days now, and decided to stay home. No one ever says anything, but no one likes when you turn up at work sick. You all know it’s true. You’re just sitting there watching your co-worker sniffle and sneeze, and you are thinking: ‘I had better not catch that.’ Not to mention it is awful to sit through a day of work when you just feel like sh*t. While being sick is never pleasant, it is made more tolerable when you can just stay in bed at home. As far as being sick goes, my day has actually not been that bad. Fed-Ex showed up bright and early with my latest LEGO delivery. And, since I published my review of the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto 1 & 2 this week (click here to read it), I also decided to finally watch the new Ghostbusters movie.

The movie was actually pretty good. I found it funny and entertaining. I liked all the cameos from the original movies. I also really liked how the Firehouse appeared in the movie, and the Ghostbusters get to use it as their headquarters in the end. It makes the LEGO version in my city that much better for all my Ghostbustin’ crew. I did find it odd that the proton packs continued to work perfectly despite every character falling backwards on to them. More alarming was the fact that no one was injured falling onto those portable nuclear reactors… But, I would watch it again some day. I would also see the sequel if they churned one out.


As you probably guessed from the image above, to go along with my LEGO review this week, I decided to have a little fun and recreate the 2016 Ghostbusters poster. It took me the better part of a day to complete, and it is a composite of several different pictures. The reason for this is that the characters in the original poster are all at different distances from the camera. That means it would have been very difficult to get them all in focus. So, I set up my photo shoot, and then captured each of the Minifigs individually around the Ecto-1. I Photoshoped the whole thing together, and I think it turned out pretty well. As always, I would love to know what you think! Until next time,
