Review: 75904 Mystery Mansion

Posted by ,

I was lucky to see plenty of fantastic sets at the London Toy Fair back in January but the recipient of my 'best in show' award was 75904 Mystery Mansion. The set bears a striking resemblance to 9468 Vampyre Castle from the Monster Fighters theme, high praise indeed considering the excellence of that model.

Now that I have the set in my possession I have to admit to being very slightly disappointed. It is a superb model on the whole and has enormous play value but some areas of the interior are lacking in detail which is a shame. However, the exterior looks spectacular and there is a brilliant selection of minifigures so I am still pleased with the set, just slightly less so than I had hoped.

  • Werewolf, Zombie Pirate, Crazy Scientist, Witch
  • Plant Monster, Fly Monster, Spectre, Zombie Cheerleader

The best thing about them however, is that the models that grace their pages have been designed by a couple of well known UK AFOLs.
