LEGO Creature Features - Boo!

With Halloween right around the corner, creepy knick-knacks are in high demand, making the new LEGO sets twice as popular. Monster-themed for a screaming good time, kids will love the fact that they can choose to be the heroic good guy who saves the damsel from the fangs of a blood-thirsty vampire. Or they can be the aforementioned bloodsucker, fending off the “good guys” and proving once and for all that movie monsters are simply misunderstood. Dubbed Monster Fighters, these sets range from mini-figurines to a whopping 1000 pieces, depending on the skill level of the builder.

What are some of the sets called?


LEGO Monster Fighters Vampyre Castle

Yes! It is as creepy as it sounds – but in a good way! 900 buildable parts, 4 weapons, and 6 mini-figurines complete this little nightmare. The mission? Defeat the vampyre and his minions! Lurking in the constructed dungeons and hallways of the murky castle are shadows with substance and bite! It’s the sworn duty of Dr. Rodney Rathbone and Jack McHammer to send this Dracula wanna-be soaring back from whence he came.


LEGO Monster Fighters The Werewolf

One of the smaller sets with 243 pieces, this is a scenario from movie history. The werewolf, unable to contain himself, lunges for the throats of the unsuspecting. However, this set includes a hunter; one who might be a match for the werewolf lurking behind the gnarled branches of the nearest easy-snap tree. With glow-in-the-dark claws, it’s easy to see when the beast will strike – but will Major Quinton Steele be able to steel himself for the attack?


LEGO Monster Fighters Ghost

This is considered a set additive. With only 31 pieces, this boo-tastic ghost makes a great addition to any dark corridor in an abandoned castle. Complete with a ticking cuckoo clock and a ball & chain, this apparition glows in the dark. Moans and groans of torment not included.
