Surprisingly Good!
" I normally buy the big sets for the size, challenge, number of bricks etc and I don't often leave reviews because generally anything I would say has already been said. I thought I'd make an exception in this case. I acquired the original Ecto-1, then bought the Firehouse, both of which are fantastic, so I felt compelled to buy the new Ecto-1, to add to the set. I was expecting a straight forward car, not too many pieces and fairly predictable but I was pleasantly surprised. There are a few subtle building techniques that I wasn't expecting and really enjoyed as the model came together. If you're at all tempted then take my word for it, buy it, you won't be disappointed. Be under no illusion, it's just a car, but it's nicely thought out and well worth adding to the collection. I bought extra bricks to recreate the original Ecto-1 minifigs stand but was unable to buy the tile with the Ghostbusters badge on it; probably a licencing issue, not to be sold separately from an official set or something. Still, it does the job and really adds a finishing touch I think. The extra bit were only £2.50(ish) +P&P "

WRONG PARTS!!
" I love this model and my opinion of it is largely very positive. I'm going to use this review to highlight a detail that most other reviewers and the official Lego picture seem to miss. The windscreens that you get are not the windscreens that you SHOULD get. If you have the model, go to page 52 in Book 2 and look at the windscreen. It says you should have 2 x 6133615. The part is 2 bricks deep at the bottom and only one row deep at the top. The ones you get are 3 rows deep at the bottom and 2 rows deep at the top. This means that both the front and back windows protrude too far into the vehicle and look a little sloppy with the overlap. If you look at the customer submitted photos closely, they indicate this mistake. Even the official photo on the main page shows the overlap on the back parcel shelf and in the front doors. Why has this not been raised before? I've contacted Lego and I'm awaiting a response. Pasting the element ID into the search function at Lego's pick-a-brick website and it returns no results, like the brick doesn't exist...? Did someone forget to design and make the part? Did you just hope nobody would notice? Attention to detail has failed here Lego. Sort it out please. "
