The Art of Darkness

Start Saving Your Pennies

Lego Haunted House…because this will be available in September.

Although there are lots of Lego “haunted houses” custom-built by hobbyists, this is the first “official” version. I have to say, it sounds rather splendid.

  • Includes 6 minifigures: 2 glow-in-the-dark ghosts, Vampyre, Vampyre’s Bride, Zombie chef and butler
  • Features unique ‘crooked’ design featuring boarded up windows and working front gate.
  • Haunted House opens to reveal detailed interior with 3 floors.
  • First floor features fireplace that swings open and displays a ship in a bottle on the mantle.
  • Cook up a ghoulish meal with the Zombie chef in the kitchen complete with old-style stove, jars and table.
  • Write letters from the Vampyre’s haunted office.
  • Pull the lever hidden in the chimney to release the drop down staircase and access the top floor.
  • Top floor features gramophone, records and newspaper LEGO® elements.
  • Customize the Haunted House with new stickers for wall hangings, spider webs and curtains.

Kotaku has a closeup look at the included minifigures, and here’s the official walkthrough video:

The kit includes over 2,000 pieces and suggested retail is US $179.99. Sounds like a holiday wishlist item to me.

    Wow. What happened was Lego caught him making this at his desk and was like, “hmm…I see an opportunity here,” and for some reason defying explanation defying explanation, let him design it!! Good for them!

    Woot! This would be so fun to put together every year with my kids. Thanks, Lego, for making traditions I don’t have to come up with myself.
