New LEGO Dimensions Story Pack Includes a Burn for the Whole Absurd Ghostbusters “Controversy”

Smells like toasted Stay Puft marshmallows.

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot has come and gone—and come back again on home video under its “new” title of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call—but there’s still time to get a few more jabs in at the ridiculous “ruining my childhood” controversy that surrounded the movie. A new LEGO Dimensions story pack for Ghostbusters features Feig himself as an Easter egg with a telling single line of dialogue.

Eurogamer pointed out the nod to furor over remaking Ghostbusters as part of their playthrough of the new story pack in the video above. In it, Feig can be rescued, whereupon he’ll wonder aloud what the reaction would be like if he were to remake Back to the Future. If he decided to gender-swap the main roles, I’m sure we can all figure out the answer easily enough—and to be honest, now I’d actually kind of like to see it happen.

It probably won’t, though—especially not if Robert Zemeckis has anything to say about it. After all, this is just a joke in a video game, but if just the suggestion of it puts a little uneasiness into the anti-Ghostbusters jerks out there, that’ll do just fine. Is it really just a joke? The Ghostbusters story pack is out now and includes the Ecto-1 and an Abby Yates minifig.
