LEGO Announces 10273 Haunted House

Today LEGO has officially confirmed the latest addition to the Creator Expert Fairground Collection. Oh, you didn’t realise the Fairground Collection was an official thing? Well that’s the official terminology LEGO are using in their press release now.

Introducing 10273 Haunted House

10273-product-1

Coming in at 3231 pieces this set features a fantastic haunted house fairground attraction. This isn’t just a haunted house though – it’s actually a working drop ride. Think Dreamworld’s Giant Drop but on a slightly smaller scale. Out of the box the set is hand powered but it can be upgraded with Power Functions elements if you happen to have them.

The overall design is amazing, modelled on the fictional Manor Von Barron, the spooky home of one of the world’s greatest villains – Samuel Von Barron. There are lots of little ancient Egyptian touches and a fantastic brick built organ.

I also really love that this ride includes a character in a wheelchair, highlighting that unlike other rides this one is wheelchair friendly.

The set is labelled as 18+ and has the more subdued style that LEGO has started using for the 18+ sets such as the Star Wars helmets.

I hope to get my hands on this set soon for a full review, but in the meantime check out the product description and images below.

The set will be released for VIPs on May 20th, with general release on June 1st. Australian RRP is $349.99.

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 9 – Recap

It’s the final elimination before finals week and the stakes are high for the four teams building tonight.

The teams arrive and there is a new fancy black curtain, clearly hiding something.

After winning yesterday Damian and Andrew hand back their golden brick and head off for the day.

The curtain drops and we get… four giant fish tanks. It’s an underwater build!

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 8 – Recap

As great as it would have been to have this episode last Monday, it’s still awesome that we finally get it – that’s right its Star Wars night tonight on LEGO Masters.

ep-8-s2-lego-masters8

The contestants arrive and the room provides no hint as to what is coming. After a bit of a chat the roller door opens and in comes a squadron of Stormtroopers. And in the most amazing scene in the entire last two series of LEGO Masters one of the stormtroopers hits his head on the door on the way in. Whoever was responsible for that gag deserves a Logie.

Happy Mother’s Day

A very happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there. I know there are lots of AFOL mums and I hope you all got lots of LEGO.

LEGO Family Forced To Live In A Tree – The Results Will Shock You

LEGO City is currently experiencing a housing crisis. A crisis with no end in sight as the government continues to prioritise the never ending expansion of our emergency services. When LEGO City officials decided to invest in a mission to Mars instead of tackling affordable housing John Clayton had enough.

“I had always been a LEGO City guy, born and bred. It was home – even though I knew it wasn’t perfect. I mean what city needs that many fire stations? But the thing that really pushed me over the edge was the Mars mission. Why is a small town funding a mission to Mars? Why are we building a bloody launch facility 30km from the CBD!”

John wanted something more for his kids. He began to investigate a more rural option for his family.

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 7 – Recap

Today is Star Wars Day – May The 4th be with you – but tonight’s episode of LEGO Masters is not the Star Wars episode. Somebody at Channel 9 really stuffed up the schedule. If you are angry enough to switch off I understand. If not stick around while I recap tonight’s episode.

Tonight is another elimination episode so another team is heading home.

Damian and Andrew decide not to play their golden brick.

The teams are ushered to stand at their desks. Immediately they all notice that there are large baseplates fixed to the top and edge but surprise there are also baseplates attached to the underside of the table.

Tonight’s challenge is called Above and Below. The build time is 12 hours.

Andrew and Damian are given the chance to use their Jordon brick and it’s finally time. Perfect time for it I think as it means they don’t have to keep getting up off the floor to race to the brick pit.
