The Haunted House of my Dreams

by

I’m sure everyone has a “MOC Bucket List” — the models you dream of making some day. I’ve had a MOC list for a very long time. Ever since I was little I’ve had certain models that I’ve wanted to make — an entire castle valley, a Miniland scale house, and — a Haunted House. (Just to name a few)

We got a brief glimpse in the Ultimate Collector R2-D2 video when the model was “accidentally” left on the table. ;)

Well now we can see it in all its awesomeness and LEGO has come up with one as good as anything I could have built!

Enter the Haunted House at your peril!
The crooked Haunted House is home to the scariest ghosts and monsters. Tremble in fear as you open the gate, go weak at the knees as you step onto the porch and gasp in horror at the fireplace, kitchen, office, folding staircase, bedroom, potion room, music room and collection of other creepy objects. Dare you enter the Haunted House?!
