If you thought the dream of owning your very own Hook and Ladder 8 meant taking out three mortgages on your house, there's soon going to be a (slightly) more affordable option on the way. This January, Lego will finally release the rumored Ghostbusters headquarters set many thought would never come. There have been dozens of plans for the famous firehouse submitted through Lego Ideas over the years, but whether they were gigantic sets or more modular designs, none had made it past Lego's approval process. At least now we know why. Based on the iconic Hook and Ladder 8 from the original two films, the Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters (75827) made its official debut today thanks to Entertainment Weekly. The set will consist of 4634 pieces, and features the two-story building with a garage, lab, living quarters and the Ghostbusters' proprietary containment system. The entire cast of major human players, including Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore, Janine Melnitz, Dana Barrett and Louis Tully will be part of the set, as will Slimer, the Library Ghost, and a pink and blue ghost.

But now another member of the project is weighing in, as Kristen Wiig has shared her thoughts on the reactions to the new Ghostbusters.
