As part of the American International Toy Fair going on in New York City, LEGO invited press to the Javitz Center, known for housing NY Comic-Con, to preview its upcoming toy lines. Everything from LEGO DUPLO to the 'LEGO Movie' line was introduced in a big reveal of 246 sets. While we've already detailed one of the coming debuts for 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' here's just some of what was shown from the coming 30th anniversary set for 'Ghostbusters,' the new 'Star Wars Rebels' figures and more.
Yep, it's official: we're getting a 'Ghostbusters' LEGO set.
Originally submitted last year as part of LEGO's Cuusoo competition (where fans design their own sets in hopes of them actually getting mass produced), the "Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary" set will include the iconic Ecto-1 vehicle and four figures representing Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddmore. And yeah, this is the kind of thing that makes us want to be kids again so we can play it with guilt-free.
The CW's 'Arrow' remains on break for the next few weeks, but what of the proposed 'Flash' spinoff, where last we saw Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) bathed in electrified chemicals and speeding toward his destiny? The first casting snippets for the 'Flash' TV series have emerged from 'Ghostbusters' star Ernie Hudson, revealing some surprising changes to the DC mythology!
'Ghostbusters 3' has remained alive in fans' hearts thanks to hopeful chatter from original star Dan Aykroyd, though all the on-and-off development issues have placed this in the category of "we'll believe it when we see it." However, new reports have emerged claiming that the sequel will finally begin filming next year, perhaps even with two new stars attached.
