Yes, everyone's favorite toy bricks are releasing a "Ghostbusters"-themed set of minifigs and vehicles in honor of the new flick, and the company previewed the pieces on Friday. The models include titular heroines Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), and Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), along with their bespectacled receptionist Kevin (Chris Hemsworth).
In addition to those known characters, there was also a slight SPOILER revealed by the new models, so if you don't want to know any more about the film's plot, stop reading now. Aside from the regular version of Kevin, it looks like there's also a possessed version, too, featuring red eyes and a menacing snarl. He's accompanied by what appears to be one of the main antagonists of the film, described by LEGO as a "red Daemon," which looks sort of like a skeletal, evil bat. (We imagine it'll be even scarier on film, since director Paul Feig has promised a spookier version of events this time around.)
The Ecto-1 car and a motorbike dubbed Ecto-2 are also included in the set. (Check out more photos of the set here.) The entire thing will retail for $59.99, and will go on sale on July 1.
"Ghostbusters" hits theaters on July 15.
