LEGO pick up the new Ghostbusters IP for 2016

Get ready for 2016 news overload as I play catch up with the latest LEGO news. first up serial leaker to the LEGO Community Just2Good has posted over on Eurobricks news that LEGO will be part of a licensing agreement to produce sets for the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot movie featuring the all-female cast.

Here is the part of the article reading Ghostbusters; ” With Ghostbusters, we have something for everyone, whether you’re a collector or an everyday toy buyer,” said Mark Caplan, the studio’s new senior vice president of global consumer products.

Mark Caplan, Sony Pictures’ new senior vice president of global consumer products, has revealed the firm’s toy plans for Ghostbusters the remake.

Mattel has signed a deal to be the global master toy licensee for next year’s Ghostbusters reboot, set to hit screens in July 2016 with an all-female team, and Sony Pictures has shed some light on the slate of
planned products, spanning blind bags, board games and action figures.

Mattel has developed a really broad line of products,  We’re going after collectors with blind bag figures at a very reasonable price point. In each figure pack there’s a piece of a particular character, so if a consumer buys all four, they can assemble a separate ghost.

Mattel is also doing a board game and six-inch figures of both the classic Ghostbusters and the brand new movie. The firm is developing a new Eco-1 and the collectable characters can fit into the car. Mattel is also creating the Proton Pack. What kid would not want to throw that on?

Alongside Mattel, we have LEGO on board, Funko doing Pop! Vinyl and Rubie’s is making costumes. It’s expansive. We have something for everyone, whether you’re a collector or an everyday toy buyer.”

Are you excited by the reboot and toy line or are you more fussed with the GB Firehouse exclusive.
