Can you see what I see? …A frightened cat on a window sill… This little village street is hiding a lot of secrets. “On a scary scary street” is a Lego MOC created by Caleb Saw. In the picture book “Can You See What I See?: On a Scary Scary Night” there are incredibly detailed images with hidden puzzles centered around a spooky story. The scary street Lego MOC is an extremely accurate recreation of one of those pages. A lot of time and thought has gone into preserving the hidden objects. This Lego scene has even recreated the lighting from the original. The buildings and street are lit up with a bunch of warm LEDs. This gives the impression of a recently abandoned street. There are a lot of really well done details here, the brick built road, the multiple street signs, the variety of window designs, and ominous dark cave. Even the digitally added sky and moon match the book.
Lego has announced a new huge haunted house set that just happens to be a theme park ride. The Haunted House (10273), also known as Manor Von Barron is part of the Fairgrounds Collection. The set is pretty much Lego’s version of the Tower of Terror from the Disney parks. The Manor is built up around a huge tower, inside of which is a terrifying elevator thrill ride. The set will be sold in a very nice looking black box, with a perfect bound deluxe instruction manual (think Lego Architecture). The Haunted House has a June 1st release, contains 3231 pieces, and will be priced at $249.99/€249.99.
The Manor Von Barron has a whole story backing it up. The house itself is named after Baron Von Baron (also known as Sam Sinister), a Minifigure that appeared in the Adventurers theme. It seems that his manor has been turned into a popular theme park trill ride. Once guest enter the lobby they will find a ticket counter, a candle lit chandelier, a huge organ player, a lot of Egyptian artifacts, a spooky alter, and the elevator itself. On the second floor a huge portrait of the Baron can be found. A neat feature is that a light brick can turn on and project a secret about the painting. A few of the mechanical features include self opening lobby doors, a working elevator, doors that automatically open at the top of the tower, and a fancy flywheel system to drop the elevator back down to the lobby.
