for that money,as fine a reproduction as it is,I would expect, at minimum,an inclusion of 6 liters of ectoplasm............also,when they call their shipping method "groundbreaking",is this a matter for concern?

That's pretty amazing when you consider you can get a DeAgostini 1/8 Ghostbuster's Cadillac for less, but it doesn't have any of the electrical/high tech features of this 1/16. I nabbed the very-well-done-Hot Wheels Ghostbuster's car only because everything opens (I was hoping to convert it) but I'm not really a GB fan. Apparently, millions are.

I always wanted one that could be stripped down to the ionic Cadillac ambulance

@john-barry ..right, that was my intention...simply remove all that "Ghostbusters garbage"  to gain a nice companion piece for my PM 1/18 '59 ambulance.

The problem was the "windows."   HW "molded in"  those dark horizontal stripes (found on all glass but the windshield). Impossible to removed, a "PITA" to replace.

The "powers that be" are particularly careful to keep single use pieces from becoming too user friendly Laughing Out Loud
