Possibly the best Lego set released
" Having been a fan of Ghostbusters since a young age, and already owning the Lego Ideas Ecto-1 set, as soon as this was announced I knew I had to have one, regardless of the price. I ordered one as soon as they went on sale.
The level of detail in the Firehouse is fantastic, with scenes from both films featured and a multitude of little easter eggs hidden around the building. I especially loved the inclusion of the dancing toasted from GB2 and the spaces for proton packs in the lockers on the ground floor.
The range of included minifigures is great too, with updated outfits for the Ghostbusters compared to the Ecto-1 set, plus fan favourites such as Dana and Lewis. The icing on the cake is Slimer and the Librarian Ghost though.
I feel the best part though is the fact the station can be closed and opened on hinges built into the external walls, and that space was made to allow Ecto-1 to fit in the firehouse - Keeping it closed requires less surface space for displaying it, which is a nice consideration, and the fact you can still fit Ecto-1 in whilst the station is closed (Albeit with the front doors open so the front of the car sticks out) is great. Allowing space for the car ties both sets together well.
My only complaint is the weight is substantial and moving house with it is somewhat stressful is you don't want to dismantle and rebuild it!
Considering Stay Puft and the Terror Dog exist in the Dimensions line, it would be nice to see them expanded over to fit into this theme too. Perhaps an expansion to include the battle against Gozer could be considered? Or a large scale Stay Puft model to stand alongside the firehouse! "

Nice little model, but not sure on the bus
" Having purchased the Winter Holiday Train last year as my first foray into the Winter Village line, and loaded it up with the optional power functions, it was great to see a matching station released this year.
Sadly, I feel this set just isn't of the same quality as the train itself - The model of the station is great, but like many other reviewers I'm puzzled by the bus. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice little model but I feel it doesn't gel well with the station and train, and looks a bit like the awkward outsider. I would have much preferred to lose the bus and bolster the pieces used in the station with full external walls and a complete roof, rather than just a facade.
Having said that, the station is a fun build with lots of interesting ideas and techniques - I especially enjoyed the way the clock tower is put together, along with the 45 degree angled door underneath. The additional straight track and level crossing are a welcome addition, extending the sparse circular track from last year (helpful to position the train on a long straight surface too, such as a windowsill, when you have no space for the loop track), and the extra fir trees allow a bit more external theming.
Overall, it's worth a purchase if you want something to complement your train, but prepare to feel slightly short changed. "
