A couple of weeks ago LEGO revealed images of the outside of the #75827 LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters, and even added it to the Online LEGO Shop, however we still couldn’t see the inside. However a few days ago LEGO released images of the inside as well on their Facebook page, so let’s take a look! 🙂
Here is the official description: Get ready to bust some ghosts at the Firehouse Headquarters!

As you can see, the #75827 LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ is massive. In fact, with over 4,600 pieces, it is the third largest set ever released by LEGO behind the #10189 LEGO Taj Mahal (5,922 pieces) and the #10179 LEGO Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon (5,197 pieces). The exterior is very impressive, and the interior is full of fun details. I particularly like the various pieces of furniture and other equipment. According to the description, the LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 will fit inside, although judging from the size, some of the furniture will have to be repositioned or removed, as the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 needs a 27×10 stud clearance to fit.
All in all, this is definitely the ultimate LEGO set for Ghostbusters fans, although the $350 price-tag will likely turn some people off. But based on the fact that the set comes with 4,634 pieces and the price-per-piece ratio is only 7 cents, this is a really good deal – especially with the huge number of dark-red elements. If you are planning to get this set in January, I strongly recommend that you get the #21108 LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 now, because as soon as the LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters becomes available, it will be in high demand and likely hard – or even impossible – to find. You can get the #21108 LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 under the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.
