Yaharr! Just when you think there’s something new worth reporting on, another announcement comes along and forces you to make a double post! Don’t get me wrong, I’m certainly not complaining! Plus, the releases I’m about to avail you of both share a few things in common: they’re both spooky, they both involve Lego and they’re both awesome!
First things first, perennial favourites on my humble blog, Mighty Jaxx are back with another iteration of Jason Freeny’s awesome Micro Anatomic. Yes, if you ordered any of the first wave of colours (like me) you probably haven’t even recieved your order yet (also like me) but MJ are back again with another sweet colourway just in time for Halloween.
This new colour features 7 colour print and a positively gruesome (if a bit piddly looking) GID anatomy half and, frankly, I think the addition of the printing makes this new colourway the best so far. The fact that the originals had no features meant that they didn’t quite have that full minifig look, but now they’ve resolved that issue this Halloween model looks perfectly like a scaled up and vivisected Lego-mon. As ever, this version is available through all the best retailers, you can get it direct here or fellow Britishists can get it at Collect&display. Obviously.
However, perhaps the bigger news this week is the newly announced (not leaked) info regarding the promised Lego Ghostbusters HQ (courtesy of Leg Godt)! Yes, it’s here in all its resplendent glory and sporting a (near) complete cohort of peoples and poltergeists. There’s the Ghostbusters themselves, obviously, but also Janine, Louis Tully, Dana Barrett and a selection of movie-featured spooks, including Slimer. If you’ve already got an Ecto-1 you’ll be all set to recreate all your favourite Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 (notice the pink slime creeping through the pavement on the lower right) scenes!
Weighing in at 4,634 pieces and a purported $350 (£250-275) it’s definitely a hefty set made more for collectors, not kiddies, and this is also a fact backed up by the January 1st release date- no one’s going to be getting this one for Christmas, sadly, but really I’m personally happy to wait as this looks to be the most promising set I’ve seen in a good while.
As ever, I’ll be sure to update you with availability when I know more, but for now you can head over to Leg Godt to find out more.
And that’s it for now. As usual, hit like etc etc and check back for more soooooon!
P.S. The title of this article is, in fact, accurate to the work I’m quoting. So don’t leave comments or email me that I got “Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble” wrong because it is one of the most frequently misquoted lines of Shakespeare save for “all that glisters” and is actually “double, double” not “Hubble, bubble” or any other variation. Anyway, bye!
