    Hero Collector Ecto-1

    So I saw this advertisement for a Build it yourself metal Ghostbusters Ecto-1 1:8 scale and I was impressed. Figured it would look amazing beside all of my Ghostbuster mego-like figures. Has anyone ever dealt with Hero Collector?

    Someone on here had been doing the Delorean from Back to the Future and sharing updates on it and it looked really nice. I think the idea of the build looks fun.

    Got my first shipment in for the Ecto-1. This thing is going to be a blast to build. It will be sooooooooo big, with working lights and sounds, hoods and doors opening. I think I'm going to wait until another couple of shipments come in before I start building it. The instructions manuals are cool because they also contain behind the scenes articles and other tidbits. So far I'm saying well worth the buy. When I start putting it together I'll start posting pics.

    Have fun with it!

    Your post sent me looking at these again and the Ecto-1 looks awesome! I'm so torn as I really want the Delorean. It would take a dedicated space to build it, and 130 issues, so the time will be extensive to complete.

    My son and I play Warhammer 40k and have bonded over building and painting, so patience I've got for the build. It is all of the waiting for the next piece that's going to kill me. LOL. That DeLorean looks INCREDIBLE!! I chose the Ecto-1 because it is pretty close to mego size and I have all of the Ghost Buster Megos. Thought they would look cool displayed together.

    There's a bunch of "build" videos for this on youtube, along with other build kits by Hero Collector (Star Trek, James Bond, etc.).

    Dangerous site to browse around on for sure. I ended up ordering the DC Chess set as well. What can I say... I'm weak.

    They were going to do the Barris Batmobile and I would have been in on that for the FTC figures, but it got cancelled I believe.
