We’ve seen the action figures. Now it’s time for the Ghostbusters minifigures.

Lego has given us a sneak peek at its first model set — called “Ghostbuster Ecto-1 & Ecto-2” — based on the upcoming reboot directed by Paul Feig, and there are a couple potential plot reveals tossed in. So stop reading now if you want to remain unspoiled.

The spook-chasing heroines, complete with proton packs and ghost traps, are all accounted for. There’s Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig)…

and Abby Yates (played by Melissa McCarthy)…

and Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon)…

and Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones).

Along for the (mis)adventure is their bespectacled assistant, Kevin (Chris Hemsworth).

But, if the bricks are to be believed (and why would Lego lie?), at some point in the movie, Kevin becomes possessed. The minifig’s head twists around to reveal crazy red eyes.

Which brings us to this guy. Here’s our first look — in minifig form, at least — of one of the antagonistic spirits, identified as a “red Daemon.” Scary.

Also included are the Ghostbusters’ rides: the new-look, tricked-out Ecto-1 car

and the Ecto-2 bike.
