      Looks like the timing of this is going to be around the same as the 1/10 Jurassic Park set. Man thats going to be an expensive month for me.

      Well my final payment won't be until May since I just placed my order, so looks like I won't be getting it until then regardless. Unless I decide to (gulp) pay off the whole thing at once when it releases.

      I accidently paid for mine (minus the deposit) all in one. I got it from moviefigures.co.uk, which uses something called partial.y to manage the payments. I paid the deposit, then after a couple of weeks I thought I would pay a bit more, kind of like how you can freestyle, pay however so much you like, when you like, like how you can with Paypal Credit.

      only it wasn't like that. I clicked the pay button, expecting to go through another step or two and then being able to pay the full amount, or pay a portion. instead, with NO warnings, it took the full remaining balance straight from my bank without so much as a confirmation. needless to say I wasn't happy about it. I contacted support and they said they couldn't reverse it, I could only cancel the transaction altogether (which would mean I would be refunded but also lose my deposit) so I declined. instead I asked a family member for a quick loan, as my account was now in the red (thankfully only by £80.)

      Kind of a relief to have it all paid for though.

      True.... but didn't we get some supposedly "firm" release dates for the GB figures as well? That kept getting pushed back anyway?

      Blitzway has one of the worst track records in this regard

      I'm still in awe with the size of this thing. 1160mm long, 450mm wide, this is going to be a beast and make one heck of a display!

      Sideshow was the only route available to purchase the Ecto when I took the plunge they said they expect it in March.

      I trust Timewalker way more than SS even though i ordered it through SS. Timewalker went way WAY above normal customer service keeping us updated through the year long delays with the GB figures.

      Yeah I agree. Iím just super anxious to get this already. Can anyone recommend a table they will use to display it?

      For sure! Timewalker has outstanding customer service. Itís very personable and professional let alone responsive and easy to work with. They even gave me a $40 coupon when I got the GB figures to use towards the Ecto-1.

      That's bigger than the '89 Batmobile. It's going to be freaking huge.

      I still remember how difficult it was to put the 89 batmobile box in my tiny car... i was shocked!
      Can't imagine the box of this Ecto-1...
      Good luck guys!

      It would probably make sense to have the roof attachments in a separate box, so the first one won't have to be quite as big, but not sure if they'll do it that way.

      With all the little lights and bits that go with it, I'm praying nothing is damaged. I'm in the UK so it's a fare way for it to travel!

      Yeah even if it arrives in perfect condition, there's still an awful lot of electronics on this thing that could go wrong. With how much I'm spending, I hope I can get at least 4-5 good years out of it first.

      I've lucked out so far with my DeLorean and Batmobile, but their electronics aren't nearly as complex.

      Thinking about it.. My old ERTL 1:21 Ecto had some minor assembly of parts to go on the roof rack, and the Hot Wheels 1:18 Ecto's you had to put on the whole roof rack. So there might be some assembly here also. time will tell I suppose..

      I Imagine 2 guys having to carry this behemoth to the front door.

      In fact if you watch this video, it shows them changing the batteries at a convention.. the batteries are in part of the roof rack and the radar and white dome with red stripes comes off.. so I imagine most of the roof will need assembling..

      Siren sounds great, 100% accurate. I have heard the sirens on pretty damn good replica Ecto 1's and they are using some sound bit from the internet and there is kind of a delay between the bursts.

      Fun fact: apparently the siren noise was made by some kind of big cat, which was then electronically reprocessed to beyond recognition and repeated over and over. So the Ecto 1 siren is actually a meow....

      It would be nice if there were a volume control for the siren. I know it's iconic and all, but it can also get pretty damn annoying after awhile.
