  1. From days of long ago, from the uncharted regions of the nerdy-verse, comes a legend, the legend of Nerdtron: Defender of the 80's! A mighty robot loved by good, feared by evil! This totally tubular titan is comprised of some of the most iconic pop culture vehicles of the 80's, such as the Ecto-1, Delorean time machine, A-Team Van, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party Wagon, and Nerdly forms the head. Sporting a glorious mullet, shoulder pads, and a walkman, our heroic 80's icons are ready to take on the Shredder, Biff, ghosts, or any other evil foe that threatens our nostalgia! This is my entry for the Nerdvember contest on Bricknerd. It was inspired by an illustration that I came across in an image search. If this isn't the nerdiest, most 80's thing you've ever seen, I don't know what is! Nerdtron: Defender of the 80's by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Here he is, ready to spring into action! Nerdtron action pose by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Behold the glory of the back of Nerdly's mullet! Nerdtron back by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr When he's not fighting crime, Nerdtron likes to relax and listen to some rad 80's tunes on his walkman. Even giant robots need a break sometimes. Nerdtron resting by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Here are Nerdly and the vehicles when they haven't formed Nerdtron. Some assembly required. Nerdtron disassembled by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr I had a lot of fun designing 6-wide versions of these iconic vehicles, so let's take a closer look at them. First up we have the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future. Nerdtron DeLorean front by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Nerdtron Delorean back by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr When there's something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? The 6-wide Ghostbusters Ecto-1 of course! This one was the most detailed and most challenging one to build at this scale. Nerdtron Ecto-1 front by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Nerdtron Ecto-1 back by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Cowabunga! Here come the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in their Party Wagon! Nerdtron TMNT Party Wagon front by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr The two Technic holes in the back are where the legs slot into. Nerdtron TMNT Party Wagon back by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr I love it when a MOC comes together. Such as this A-Team van.

I hope you like it nonetheless.
  2. HI guys I want to share this video with you. Hope you like the intro I've made :) I recommend, raise the volume of the audio !! Today we present a new product of the company Light My Bricks which offers complete solutions through the production of lighting kits specially designed for many LEGO sets on the market. This kit is made for the Led lighting of the Ghostbusters LEGO Ecto-1 set. The packaging is really well done, and in the front there is the big logo of the company Light My Bricks and later a set of information about it. The name of the LEGO set for which the kit is studied is shown below, on one of the two apertures of the package. Within the package we find the soft sponge that protects the electronic components inside. Let's see them together: 9 fixed white leds 9 white flashing leds 2 expansion cards with 12 ports 1 battery holder (requires two CR2032 batteries) the information booklet LEGO extra pieces Specifically, the extra LEGO pieces inside the kit are: 6 Lego 1 × 1 plates with clip (gray) 4 Lego 1 × 6 plates (white) 4 Lego 1 × 2 plates (gray) 4 Lego 1 × 2 plates (transparent blue) 1 Lego 1 × 1 round plate (transparent blue) As always, the LEDs and expansion cards are individually contained inside the antistatic sachets. Anti-static envelopes are used to protect electronic components from electrostatic discharge. The kit instructions can be found on the manufacturer's website and can be viewed online or downloaded in PDF format. In the booklet inside the box there are only a number of generic tips. The model is full of illuminating elements thanks to the presence of many headlights on the roof of the vehicle and expansion boards, and all electronic components are inserted inside the vehicle. As instructors, to install this led kit we will have to disassemble several pieces, including the roof and all the windows, in order to access the bricks of our interest. The installation of the led in the front lights and blue light on the left side of the car are easy. Just remove both front wheel arches and headlights and then put in the non-flashing LEDs. Same identical operation for blue spotlight. All present cables come into the interior of the passenger compartment and are fixed with gray slopes. For the two red headlamps, just remove the rear glass and the two red cones. Flashing LEDs are inserted here. For a clean job, we recommend rolling the cables around the expansion card. Refit the front glass and side windows to later install the lights on the roof of the machine. This part is quite complex. The components are so many. There are 11 LEDs in total. Finally, we connect the two expansion cards between them and light up the lights. First, however, we have to put the batteries in the dedicated compartment. The finished model is very similar to the original set and all electrical wiring is hidden inside the car. The mix of fixed and flashing lights in this kit make the ecto 1 very cinematic. In conclusion I can say that this kit I particularly liked. The Led are so small that they can be easily inserted into 1x1 rounds. This is not the first kit I try, in the past I tried the kit for the Big Bang Thoery set (my favorite among those I've tried) and that for the UCS Tumbler. You can see the videos by clicking Big Bang Theory and UCS Tumbler. If you are interested in these kits, I suggest you contact Light My Bricks guys on their Facebook page. If you live in Europe, I know they have some resellers. For Christmas I hope to be able to illuminate my little diorama. I will upload video updates on the channel.
  3. IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN AND WITH HALLOWEEN AROUND THE CORNER I WANTED TO HONOR THESE MONSTER MEMORIALS: 15TH: This year marks the 15th year since the Studios monster subtheme (called Scary Thriller and even Scary Monsters) made its debut, introducing Universal-style monsters. Although TLC had licenses on Universal Studios properties such as Jurassic Park and Steven Spielberg's name, one is led to believe that they did not have the Universal Studios Monsters license or, at least, were granted permission to make sets resembling this license. There were four sets and even at times these sets mixed monsters from other movies (like the 2017 edition of The Mummy with Tom Cruise). The main monsters represented were a Vampire, Werewolf, Frankenstein, and The Mummy, although these characters were more or less designed to be costumed actors on film sets. The sets, in many ways, closely resembled the Universal Studios monster films. Other monster mashups included a modified version of Dr Jeckyll/Mr Hyde as the Scientist in the Frankenstein set, the ghost costume and a female actress in the same set (I am guessing an homage to Phantom of the Opera) and The Hunchback in the Vampire set. Although not directly stated by his name, Van Helsing makes an appearance too in the Vampire set. 5th: This year marks the 5th year since the Monster Fighters line was released. Centered around the fictional steampunk culture, here, a gang of monster hunters must stop Lord Vampyre from eclipsing the sun forever. Many of the sets were different from actual sets in the movies but at times, especially with the Vampyre's castle, they had some similarities. Given the design of the vehicles one must wonder if the time period wasn't meant to be depression-era, especially since many monster movies were released around this time. The sets, in some ways like the Werewolf set, reused previous ideas from the original line. However, some sets did indeed create new editions of older sets and introduce new monster properties from which they were derived. I suggest the following: * Lord Vampyre's Castle - Dracula * Frankenstein - Frankenstein * The Mummy - A chariot, * Werewolf - The Wolf Man * Sea Creature - Creature from the Black Lagoon * Vampire Hearse / Coffin Car - Munsters Coach & Dragula. The driver had been called Renfield, Dracula's assistant, in the preliminary box displays, as well as Dracula being used for Dracula's Castle. * Vampire's Bride - A spin-off of Bride of Frankenstein mixed with Elvira * Haunted House - Munsters (the creator of the set was wearing a Munsters shirt during the reveal for this set) and some Addams Family influence since there was a Frankenstein's monster butler * The Zombies - White Zombie (it was supposed to feature the VoodDoo doctor) and of course was, after all, a zombie wedding in a graveyard * Ghost Train - I am guessing a very loose idea from the 1941 film by the same name * Spooky Boy & Spooky Girl - Although they came later, it's worth noting Spooky Boy is more like Pugsly Addams while Spooky Girl, which you would think is Wednesday Addams, reminded me more of Lydia from Beetlejuice due to her schoolgirl outfit * Tiger Woman - close to the 1944 film by the same name * Mr Good/Evil - A spinoff from Dr Jeckyll/Mr. Hyde * Grandfather clock - Any number of horror films, though Disney's Haunted Mansion ride stands out for me * The Fly/Scientist - obvious * Venus Flytraps (Scooby doo) - Little Shop of Horrors * Graveyard / Witch scenes - Wizard of Oz, Walking Dead * Most zombies are likely influenced by Walking Dead and the rise of the zombie movie craze around that time * One can't help to think if Mad Monster Party and Groovie Ghoulies helped to influence any of these sets and CMFs * Frankenrocker - I know the Beetlejuice show done this at Universal Studios Orlando but I can only find the frankenstein monster from Munsters playing the guitar Almost all of these comparisons to all the Monster properties mentioned are based on my observation since the only time we knew of TLC acknowledging their relation to existing monster movies was at an event where recording was prohibited during an advance presentation of the line.

  5. MOC small Fire station

    I really wanted a fire station in my town. I sacrificed my townhouse as it was no use in my setup, and i tried to build a fire station in the same style. the fire truck i already owned. and to fill the small garage i wanted to build a SUV firetruck. but then i had the idea to downscale my ecto-1 and that just fitted! so now it is also Ghost Busters HQ let me wat you think
  6. I've previously posted some of these but have now taken decent picture and added stickers. I think a new thread is deserved. They were all part of my Tie Rack for Brickvention 2017: So here we go. Mining Guild - added custom stickers Dalek Tie Rebels Wolf - added custom stickers Scooby Doo / Mystewry Machine Ectie 1 Classic Space Batman Steampunk ...

  7. [MOC] My Ecto-1a

    This is my version of the ecto-1a. I bought a second ecto-1 from lego ideas, I changed the roof and put sticker on it. The result is very nice. Now I have the ecto's from the three movies. I really like the result. Please tell me what you think of it. Do you like it or not?
  8. [MOD] Ghostbusters Proton-Pack Fix

    Just when they thought they were ready for their first Ghostbusting-adventure, Erin realized that something was wrong when she tried wearing her new proton-pack for the first time: She fell over! It was way too heavy! Luckily Holtzmann immediately started working on a fix. Unluckily for Erin, totally forgetting to help her getting back on her feet again… After a couple of hours of wriggling and cursing helplessly however, the work was done! No more falling over! Sadly by sacrificing the lovely printed domed tile-piece. But the increase in wearing comfort and the lack of losing balance makes it definitely worth it! And there are surely other projects where the pieces can be used for! I knew this mod was coming, since I saw the first pictures of this set. The Lego designers basically replicated the same design-flaw as in the first Ecto-1. Just with a more fancy construction (which is, as it seems, at least slightly lighter) and new black ingot-pieces. The results are nicely looking, but sadly totally oversized and unwieldy backpacks, which are simply useless for posing the Minifigures on anything other than a studded surface. Unless you want to pack them like a mule with accessories for their hands, that is. This fix, while not quite as faithful in detail, are nicely proportioned and not as overwhelming as the original ones. And – most importantly – they allow our Ghostbusters to stand freely without any aid or counterweight. And finally I found some good use for the gold-coins I had leftover from the last castle-series. Dark grey or even silver ones would have been probably more faithful to the film, but I didn’t had any at hand. So what: building with Lego means compromises^^ Also, I guess this isn't the first time someone had the very same idea. At least to me this appears as a most obvious solution. And it does the job nicely! Anyway. I hope you find it useful nevertheless
  9. Ghostbusters 3

    I am a big fan of Ghostbusters, the old ones an the new one. I have one big question, that I have a long time. Is LEGO making 1 more set of the Ghostbusters 3 movie?
  10. I felt this warranted a separate topic since I have completed my Ecto-1 modification. When I first bought Ecto-1 I was excited that it became an official set, but lacked many of the qualities I remember from the film. Flails did a beautiful rendition of the car in June 2014 and gave away the LDD file on his site. I rebuilt the interior and heavily modified his file to suite my needs. From his interior appearance I would say its about 70% his design, but I wanted several things shown from the film inside this car. Major Improvements: 1. Roof rack. I used Brickarms' Monopod, two U-Clips, Brick Train's 1-N Ladder, and a cut down LEGO bar to achieve a more accurate depiction. I wish the Ladder was smoother and not 3d Printed. Maybe I will find time to cut LEGO Ladders and glue them together to make this better. 2. The front driver's seat includes a nice slope bench seat as did the old cadillac. 3. I also reworked the floor and computer terminal in the back seat area to fit the actual echo-1. 4. All new front headlights build. I wanted the tires and lights sit the way you see them in the film. Closer to the front. 5. The structure inside the car underneath the seats and trunk were completely reworked so it was stronger. 6. One of the most notable differences are on the rear tail fins. I am quite proud of making these 4 studs long instead of 3 studs. I understand why LEGO did it since there are tires behind them, but with slight changes on the structure, the 4 stud wedge plates look much closer to the sleek ambulance. 7. Blue hose modification. I use two white Brickarms U-Clips and a cut down flex cable. 8. Everything is now Chromed What I may do now that I have all my parts, cut down the red bars on the roof and make it 2 studs long. You can download the final LDD file here http://www.chrisehno...cto1_051016.lxf You can see the rest of the album here on my new flickr page: https://flic.kr/s/aHskDhtzJT LEGO Echo-1 Mod by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr LEGO Echo-1 Mod by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr LEGO Echo-1 Mod by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr LEGO Echo-1 Mod by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr LEGO Echo-1 Mod by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr LEGO Echo-1 Mod by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr LEGO Echo-1 Mod by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr LEGO Echo-1 Mod by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr
  11. Hey guys, I just finished up my GBHQ portal for the game Lego Dimensions. It comfortably fits all the Ghostbusters content released thus far, and fits nicely on the Toy Pad. The .lxf for the firehouse and the in-game Ecto-1 model can be found here: http://adf.ly/1cEIAs The .lxf is only missing the exclusive 12x24 Dimensions baseplate (as it is not in LDD) but it should be fairly obvious where it goes. These are available on B&P for roughly $4. Comments welcome, and please share pictures if you build it!
  12. Presenting my LEGO Mighty Micro interpretation of the Ghostbusters (1984) Ecto-1! Ghostbusters, Ecto-1 (Mighty Micro) by Adeel Zubair This recreation of the Ecto-1 as a Mighty Micro was quite simple to design. It's ironic that the back of the model is the highlight of the whole model. I'm pretty sure you can guess what pieces were used at the front. NB - I didn't post a main photo of this MOC as it was a rather dull photograph, I attempted it several times and it just wasn't working. Thankfully the back came out perfectly! It's perspective and angle looks quite Chibi and comical with the right side wheels getting pressed into the ground as the Ecto-1 comes in to action!

  13. LEGO Ghostbusters

    Ghostbusters gets a LEGO movie makeover! Lots of brickbuilt effects. enjoy!
  14. GhostBusters, Dana Barretts Apartment This is my Lego Ideas model of Dana Barrett's apartment from the eighties classic movie Ghostbusters I Have made the model as near to movie accurate as I could get, I spent a lot of time viewing the film footage and cross referencing from screen grabs, The apartment features several times throughout the movie and the set dressing changes on each occasion, so I have combined all occasions into the model. The features of the set are as follows three mini figures Dana Barrett, Pete Vekman,Terror Dog Terror Dog arms to attach to the arm chair Additional 1X1 Triangle pieces to create the carpet ripple effect Additional pieces to create the apparition in the fridge All the furnishings of the apartment, Piano, Tables, Books (etc) This is one of my favorite scenes in the film I believe this Lego Idea would really compliment the ghost busters Lego sets that are already available.
  15. I am not a sticker fan. Not a violent or vocal campaigner or complainer, it's just my building preference. The Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters was a no-brainer. I definitely had to have one. Still want one. But, the fact that the main signage out front is a sticker made me put a pin in the idea. For now. I'm curious...has any one found a way to mod the main sign out front using the printed logo bricks from 21108-1 Ghostbusters Ecto-1? I know they are slightly different elements...but has anyone found a good looking way to do this? I desperately want that Firehouse, but I can't do stickers. Without the sign at all, the set just isn't worth it to me. Any suggestions or a friendly point in the right direction would be very much appreciated. Play well!
  16. MOC: Some Ghosts to Bust

    If there’s something strange in your neighbourhood, Who you gonna call? If there’s something weird and it don’t look good, Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! It’s nice that we have finally gotten some ghosts to bust with the new Ghostbusters headquarters, but I think there is still a lot of interesting ghosts that could make for some interesting MOC’s. Let’s start with something simple from the movies: A couple of Terror Dogs. I copied reverse engineered them from the upcoming Dimensions version, but they are a little different because I didn’t have the right parts. I do though have to say that making the torso 3 studs wide actually looks pretty good, they get some more girth from it. The Scoleri Brothers were a couple of murders when they were still alive, and were sentenced to the chair for their crimes. Unfortunately ridding them of their mortal bodies only turned them into a really nasty pair of ghosts. But the movies are not the only source of ghosts: Here we have Chomper, Grabber, Gulper and Wrapper, four mini ghosts that were included with the action figures of the Real Ghostbusters. Among the more notable ghosts from the Real Ghostbusters cartoon we have Samhain, the spirit of Halloween. If he is not stopped he will make Halloween night last forever. He even has the ability to make ghostly traitors like Slimer fade out of existence. Another horrible group of spirits were the Peoplebusters who some of the ghostbusters once met when they were sucked into a parallel universe (that happens surprisingly often in that line of work). The Peoplebuster were apparently not as busy as the Ghostbusters were, because they never hired a ghost version of Winston. And last, but most certainly least we have one of the most famous ghosts from the franchise, Mr. Stay Puft! And a group shot of the various horrors: I ain’t afraid of no ghost!
  17. Lego Exclusives

    Ok, so this year I am aiming to buy the Ghostbusters hq, the brick bank, and the Lego batman 66 batcave. I have no access to Lego online store for several reasons, and I live in Edinburgh, so I have no access to a Lego store. So what I'm really trying to ask, is does anyone know how long (or if ever) it will take for any of these to be sold at other retailers, like Smyths, toys r us and John Lewis, who sometimes get exclusives. Thanks for any answer, Dylan
  18. (I'm not sure where to put this model, as it's town, but based off a licensed set in a classic space color scheme!) This classic car was inspired by my previous car for Benny the 1980-something space guy, and partially by set 21108. (that's the Ghostbuster's Ecto 1) With the Ecto 1, I removed the front hood, shortened the car's length and width to make it about the same size my usual CITY-scale vehicles at a acceptable 24 studs long and 6 studs wide. I then added the front hood and grille work which was originally inspired by set 4728 (Escape from Privet Drive). The rear of the car features twin exhaust pipes, and a license plate that in all likelihood is a vanity plate saying "BENY84". (as 1984's the year our favorite blue Classic Space astronaut was introduced) (picture from Bricklink) Also, the 4x2 slope should feature the print above (link to Bricklink: http://alpha.brickli...63pb021#T=C&C=7 ) Anyway, the car looks like it could fit a figure, but it can't as of right now... It probably could work but would require substantial body work MODs that I frankly don't want to do right now. (sorry!) The car will be built by summer, and will replace the car seen in the above picture. LDD file: http://www.moc-pages...1452458064m.lxf
  19. Well, now That we know that there will be sets, I thought that it was good to start a topic here. What do you guys think about the new femenine reboot?
  20. GB HQ Mini Modular House Series

    Hi All, I am working on a theme mashup series. The formula is, theme + 16x16 modular houses = Fun. That way all our favorite Lego themes can live on one street. I have built 3 so far but I am waiting for the right coloured parts to arrive before I post them. Anyway here's the first house. The pic is a little dull because of the terrible weather I'm sure we will be having in Ireland for the next 6 months. Hope ya like it.
  21. HALLOWEEN IS AROUND THE CORNER... AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS? SPOOKY FUN FOR EVERYONE!!! Over the years I have taken my time to diligently archive many of the LEGO Halloween & Monster sets ever released. I have also made 2 videos: one outlining the history of Halloween sets released by TLC and another counting down the top 10 creepiest, spookiest, scariest, sets. Both videos come with bonus content. I understand the Halloween history one speeds too fast. If it gains traction I'll upload a slower version. You may access these cool videos and sites through the links found in my signature below. Please enjoy them and have a Happy Halloween!
  22. Well since we know that we are getting one more D2C that is not a Super Hero set I thought I'd make this page so that we could stop cluttering up the DC page ! Here's just2good's quote about the "nostalgic" D2C: "Two d2cs = not both from DC Two d2cs = nostalgic Two d2cs = one is batcave" Possibilities: - Scooby Doo - Ghostbusters - Wizard of Oz - Back to The Future - Space - Pirates - Adventures

  24. [MOC] GHOSTBUSTERS HEADQUARTERS

    Hi to all EB users, I have the pleasure to present the first collaboration AITORUCO/MTRkustoms We are a spanish train builders and the better way to make a collaborative MOC is to design and build a Ghostbuster Headquarter . This Headquarter is completed with the Ecto-1 with custom leds of MTRkustoms and the 8w American cars of AITORUCO There is no need to talk about this building so lets see the pictures, so..... who you gonna call? More Pictures and all full resolution pics here
