10228 Haunted House unveiled today
The Haunted House, that was inadvertantly revealed in the Town Hall designer video a few months ago, has been officially unveiled today, at the 20th Anniversary of The Mall of America LEGO store celebrations.
When I first saw the pictures yesterday, I was taken aback by how stunning this is. It looks fantastic from the outside, like the archetypal haunted house featured in countless movies, with boarded up windows, peeling plasterwork to expose the bricks underneath and broken shutters and railings. But it doesn't end there: it's a proper 4-walled building that's hinged on one side to reveal a highly-detailed interior complete with kitchen, bedroom and attic.
If that's not enough to get you excited, it features 6 great minifigs: male and female vampires, a zombie chef, a Frankenstein's monster-like butler and two of the new glow-in-the-dark ghosts. The rest of the Monster Fighters range doesn't do much for me, but I will definitely be getting this. Unfortunately we have to wait until September before we can buy it :-(
You can see all 23 images that LEGO provided on the set details page.
