4Finally the Ecto 1 with the Original Movie Ghostbusters No Ghosts Symbol is Released!Mar 07, 2010
By James N Simpson
This Ghostbusters Ecto 1 ambulance is part of the 2010 basic mass produced Hot Wheels range that you'll find in supermarkets, department stores, toy stores, well everywhere really. This means you can get this for the exact same cheap price that every other mass produced Hot Wheels vehicle sells for which should be around $2 at the most. If you are buying it at the time of this review (2010), I'd check the stores first before looking online as the price off the rack is going to be cheaper than even just the postage price from an online vendor. However if you're reading this a few years after its release I'd probably try and track down a Johnny Lightning version if they are around the same price as those cars are a lot more detailed and if you can, try and get the diorama that along with the same 1:64 sized Ecto 1 also comes with a NY police car and the four Ghostbusters as figures, (not on Amazon at time of this review). The Hot Wheels version does have one improvement the Johnny Lightnings have been widely criticised for and it may well be important to you. The no ghosts symbol, on the Hot Wheels version is the one from the first movie whereas the Johnny Lightning versions all used the sequel's symbol where the ghost was doing the peace sign. I know, not a major thing, but to some collectors it is.

Because this was built to be part of the mass produced Hot Wheels range some basic construction element decisions were made no doubt to keep the costs down. This has been done with other TV/Movie vehicles like the 1966 TV version Batmobile and later Hot Wheels brought out a more expensive better materials and detailed versions for collectors so it's possible they will do the same with the Ecto 1. Those elements are the windows/windscreen are part of the same mould of plastic as the roof emergency lights so they are blue instead of clear. There is also no metal divider between the left and right bars of the roof lights. The wheels are cheap standard mass produced wheels ones without rubber tyres but do look nice on the vehicle. The ladder on the sides and equipment on the roof is all the same mould and black plastic. In fact if there wasn't an illustration on the blister card you probably wouldn't even know the side bits of black plastic were a ladder. There's also isn't a no ghosts symbol on the rear door like in the movie, nor an Ecto 1 front or rear numberplate. Apart from those minor things, for a cheap mass produced 1:64 sized Hot Wheels vehicle this is pretty darn good and if you can get it in store during its original release for under $2, well worth it!

For those who keep their collection in the blister packs the one that comes with this far exceeds the standard Hot Wheels blister. Not only does it have the same illustrated car on the blister as the one you get (not often the case with basic Hot Wheels) but it's a nice illustration too. I bought mine along with another vehicle in the 2010 basics HW range that has a screaming face on it. It's called Rocket Box and you can display them as if the Rocket Box is a terrified possessed car being chased by the Ghostbusters in the Ecto 1. Also if you're buying this for a child to play with it is very durable, the only thing is I could see the black plastic roof attachment detaching with a bit or serious ghost chase crashing. If you're getting it while it's cheap, you could always get one to play with and one to display!

Update 2012 - Released exclusive through Kroger stores, under their 2012 Tricked Out Treats range, but you can get it online here, on online auction sites and places like that, the Ecto1 rerelased in black with slime down the sides and Slimer on the bonnet (hood). Amazon has it here.

5A cool little car for fans of the movies.Sep 07, 2010
By Armando N. Roman
My daughter's really been into Ghostbusters for the past few months, which I thought was weird because I was a huge fan of them when I was her age, but also because I never showed her the movie, and couldn't figure out how she knew about them! One thing she'd been wanting was the Ecto-1, so this was an obvious buy. She's had hours of fun with it already, cruising around busting ghosts and Pokemon left and right.

There's really not a whole lot to say about this car. It's the standard Hot Wheels size, has the great No Ghosts logo on the doors, as well as the other features that make it the Ecto-1. The top portion with all the gear is painted solid black, and missing a bit of detail that most hardcore fans would've loved to have, but it's understandable. The doors and hood don't open, but the wheels move perfectly. The only real complaint I have is that the gear portion is snapped on, but comes off pretty easily. It clips through holes in the back windows, but never fully snaps in place because one of the pegs is a bit short. 'no big deal though, but if you have small children who'll be playing with this, you may want to take it off beforehand, or glue it on for good.

The Ecto-1 is a neat little collectible that many Ghostbusters fans have added to their collections since it came out. Unfortunately, a lot of sellers know that fans eat up any merchandise, and have been marking up the prices like crazy. As it is, anything under 10 bucks seems good to me, though half or less is much better of course. It's just plain cool having a little Ecto-1, and since my daughter loves it, that's all that matters. Get one or two now while the prices aren't too bad!

5If you love Ghostbusters, you'll like this.Nov 27, 2013
By Jimmy
I bought this as a gift for my brother and had to fight the urge to keep it for myself. It just looks very cool. If you're a fan of Hot Wheels or Ghostbusters then this is definitely something you're going to want to grab.
