I know this has been asked before, but this time im requesting it be made. A 3D ghost from ghostbusters named slimer. Most of you should know who he is.

The reason I'm doing this is cause I know someone who is making a lego stop-motion ghostbuster film and he doesnt know how he could get a lego ghostbuster man.

If he's making the rest out of lego wouldn't it be better to make a ghost slimer out of lego and make him slightly transparent and blurry?

You could film your other 'actors' and then film slimer seperatly, cut out that bit and overlay it onto the other footage.

A lego slimer? Probably wouldn't look as good as a real looking one.

ive tried both ways with other things, usually real things look pretty cool in a lego movie. I have no idea why, its just one of those things.
