The Castle is, at the moment, the biggest set of the theme with almost one thousand pieces. It has, besides the enormous modular castle with three towers, a car with a rocket engine at the back, seven mini-figures which are according to wikia: the Lord Vampyre, the Vampyre Bride, two Bat Monsters, a Skeleton, Jack McHammer and Dr. Rodney Rathebone.
This modular building, no matter the hundred dollars, is a must for the monster fighters’ lovers. The base plates have an octagonal shape that allows choosing multiple configurations for the building. However every possible way will always have three towers with plenty of features and nice details.First of all, the castle, which is predominantly gray, Continue reading
The Vampyre Hearse is a new set of Moster Fighters’ theme that will be released next summer, perhaps in June. The set contains more than three hundred pieces that includes the black hearse, a small motorcycle and three mini-figures: Lord Vampyre, The Zombie Driver and Dr. Rodney Rathebone.
The set recreates the scene where Dr. Rodney chases Lord Vampire that is trying to escape with the precious moonstone. And for that, they will use the hearse that is surely a vehicle typical of the theme, if we look at its details because it is quite different from everything. There is not (almost…) a single feature that we might say that came from another theme.The car is reasonably long as well as wide (it is 8 dots wide). His hood, well, there isn’t properly a hood because the motor is gigantic. Continue reading
The Zombies is another excellent Monster Fighters’ set that will be released next summer (it’s almost…). If you like the theme you will not miss the set, especially if you have the castle or even the ghost train. The set includes four mini-figures that are Jack McHammer, the main character and three Zombies that according to wikia are Bride, Driver and Groom.
If we look carefully at the figures, namely to their torsos and faces, they are quite different from the usual. The zombies’ faces are pale and bloody and their clothes are completely torn. Jack, no matter its aspect, is the only normal guy in the set (at last I see a figure with the prisoner’s hair). They are definitely a nice addition to the collection.Besides the figures, the set has also a hunting car and a graveyard with two twin graves in the outside. Continue reading
The Ghost Train is a new set from the Monster fighter theme that will be released next summer. It has almost seven hundred and fifty pieces and five nice mini-figures: three ghosts, and two main characters: Ann Lee and Frank Rock. These, particularly, are great additions to the collection because they have plenty of different details, which I highlight the sun glasses of Frank and the Ann Lee’s hair.
The set is composed by a huge black train with three carriages and an airplane. Starting by the train, aesthetically, it has a look directed to the ghost theme. The main machine has a scary face, which is a nice round printed piece, two long tails all along the train and bones all around. Inside, in the back cabin there is a red lever and a door to the boiler that will feed the engine.The locomotive has real train wheels that mean it is full compatible with the city rails.
