The Swamp creature is a little seven dollars set that looking that it worth every centime. It has exactly seventy little pieces, that include a nice swamp boat with side missiles, two mini-figures (Frank Rock and a Swamp Creature – this one is an added value, find it on cheap set is not easy) and a little swamp.
Starting by the little swamp, the first impression is that with a little bit more creative (and a couple of dollars more, too…) it could by slightly bigger, perhaps with a bit of water and one or two bushes, by this is just my opinion. The swamp has also a dead?? fish for the creature and a small yellow bubble maker.The boat is rather radical. It’s so small and at the same time it Continue reading
The Werewolf is a Monster fighter set that was recently released on stores. It intends to recreate a scene where the Major Quinton, attracted by the moonstone falls into an ambush. The set is composed by an unusual tree, with a nice jumping mechanism at the top, the werewolf, a vehicle, typical of the theme, for the Major, and the so called two mini-figures: the werewolf and the Major Quinton Steele, which definitely are a good addition to any collection.
Starting by the vehicle, it is a bit small but its wheels are, proportionally, bigger than usual. Besides that, the rear axe is higher than the front one, which gives the car a nice effect. If we look at the unusual details of the car, the list is huge: the front grill is a rare piece, the front lights are four and are pinned on some pieces commonly used in other tasks, the side engine valves and the small windshield are some of the aspects that we look at the first glance. And I was almost forgetting the rarest: the silver frog, over the engine!The tree is everything but a tree. It has, in the base, a small witchcraft temple with some horns and a orange flame.

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
