Ghostbusters fans and collectors: this is your moment. Hero Collector Eaglemoss have a new 1:8 cale model coming for you to build, the iconic Ecto-1. This is like their Star Wars Millennium Falcon vehicle, meaning that it is subscription-based and will see you regularly sent parts and pieces to build the entire thing from the ground up. The car is die-cast, the doors, hood, and windows can open. It features tons of lights and sounds, including the instantly recognizable siren. Even the steering wheel works. Once assembled, it will be 31 inches long and just looks gorgeous. Check out pics and details below, and go here to register interest for the model for when it goes live later on this year.
Hero Collector Eaglemoss 1:8 Scale Ghostbusters Ecto-1
Collectors, die-cast enthusiasts, hobbyists and generations of Ghostbusters fans will soon be able to build their very own ECTO-1 in the comfort of their own home or firehouse. This unique subscription program regularly delivers plans, parts and behind-the-scenes insights with which to easily assemble a perfect 1:8-scale die-cast replica of one of the most instantly recognizable vehicles in motion picture history – the ECTO-1 as featured in the original Ghostbusters movie, now celebrating its 35th anniversary.
Based on a careful study of the actual 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance used in the 1984 supernatural comedy, every possible detail of the ECTO-1 has been carefully reproduced in 1:8 scale. The doors, hood and windows all open, the headlights, tail lights, brake lights, and emergency lights all work, the siren sounds, and the steering wheel turns the front wheels. The completed model is over 31-inches long, close to 10-inches wide and showcases the custom modifications made by Dr. Ray Stantz himself, including:
- Ghostbusting Roof Rack with intricately reproduced and poseable P.K.E.-detection tools
- Rotating Lights that illuminate and spin
- Opening Hood that reveals the highly detailed replica Cadillac V8 engine
- Working Headlights and Tail Lights operated from the dashboard
- Tires and Hubcaps with screen accurate Cadillac and Remington branding
- 5 Opening Doors that allow access to the authentically detailed interior
Subscriptions are slated to begin in the fall
