    Really irritating unveiling. Give me more pics of the product lego.

    Looks great, although it'd be better with dark orange rather than red bricks. I'll definitely be getting this though.

    Prefer the upcoming Brick Bank modular, but will get both.

    I am so getting this. I already have ecto 1.

    Anyone know the best place to get an ecto 1? Would like to pick one up for the young lad.

    I got mine direct from Lego. I asked in Smyths and they said it wouldn't be getting re-stocked. Unsure of any other B&M store where you might find it.

    Thanks, doesn't seem to be in stock from the lego store.

    Where are you based?

    In Dublin but I don't mind buying online.

    Spotted them in a store in cork last week but it's not the type of place that'd have any on line sales. It's Toytown in Blackpool retail park.

    I could have swore I saw one in Ken Black in Carlow last Sunday. Might be worth giving them a ring


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,721 ✭✭✭ qwertz


    Nimble Fingers in Stillorgan have one in stock. 46.9x or 47.9x.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 18,970 ✭✭✭✭ syklops


    Shame there aren't more pictures. I want to see inside damnit!

    Yup. My gaff.

    Yup. My gaff.

    I wish it was my gaff. Wanted to live in a firehouse since I was about 8.

    Yes, sorry, should have said back available now. :o

    It looks pretty nice but the price is just beyond justification. Maybe if it was limited to 100 sets.

    If it was limited to 100 sets you wouldn't stand a chance in getting one as they would be gone in the blink of an eye. Look at the limited edition 4x4 crawler from last year 20,000 units shifted in about 12 hours as far as I remember.

    This will sell without issue even at the price. They do it for Star Wars sets and they sell without any issue.

    As another poster said, If it was limited to 100 sets none of us could ever hope to get one.

    Yes its pricey but its a serious bit of kit. "Does this pole work?" It sure does.

    Anyone think it's likely to be back in Smyths or elsewhere before Christmas?

    It's €62 after you add on shipping on the Lego site. :o

    Add a couple of keyrings to bring it up the €55 mark to qualify for the free shipping ;)

    i've not bought lego in years but this one really appeals to me. Just can't justify the price tag of it unfortunately.

    Available to buy now:

    Any chance this has a limited run and could sell out, I notice limit of 1?

    It'll probably be on sale for two years I'd guess. Might sell out the odd time during that. All the [email protected] exclusive stuff is limited to one at the moment. Really annoying as I need to get two Brick Banks. One for myself and another as a present.

    Not sure how strict they are on the limits. I ordered a second Dr Who and second Wall-e a couple of weeks ago (for Christmas gifts), both a Limit: 1, I only realized a few days later but the order was fulfilled and delivered before Christmas.

    Detectives Office also shows as Limit 1, I ordered one on day 1 last year and a second one in March without any problems.

    Maybe order the second one in a few weeks when things die down a bit.

    Ordered a Brick Bank this morning, I will wait and see if I can get double VIP points (some time in March) on the Ghostbusters HQ though since it is pricey, and an extra 5% off would be nice. Comments on Bricklink suggest it is selling well in physical lego stores but as you say, it will be on sale for a fair while yet, closest recent equivalent is probably the Helicarrier which is readily available direct from Lego.

    Its not a set I'd buy myself, so drop me a PM if you want to buy one through my account, I'd be happy to arrange that with you

    Fantastic offer Spocker, but ended up using the wife's account. Thanks again.
