"Such is life and life is such and after all it isn't much. First a cradle. Then a hearse. It might have been better, but it could have been worse."

A week ago i wrote a post about the Lego Monster fighters Vampyre castle that i brought and built recently. I was instantly drawn in by this range as it is something different from Lego. I'm not usually that interested by the kits i much prefer mine and Seth's custom builds but i loved some of the new pieces and ideas and of course the Mini figures.

Ive brought another five of the kits, four of which i am yet to build. But i recently built the Hearse kit which i was very impressed with and Seth loves too.

It looks great and we really love the spring action coffin that catapults Dracula from the back. Thankfully its not flimsy like the castle so it meant that Seth could actually play with it.

It got me thinking of my Lego Mini figure again and transforming myself into a monster fighter to go with the set.  I have after all always wanted a robotic arm and leg. But ill save that for another post. Seth's itching to build the Mad scientists lab set so you may be reading a post about that very soon.

I wanted the castle / manor house but it's exclusive to the dot com website for £150 :-/ seems like alot of cash . I don't think there's enough pieces for the money to be fair ! I reckon you could build yiur own for a fraction of the price , but the mf's are so cool & the bats etc .... Tough choice !

Id really like that kit too but your right it is pricey. Saying that I think it's not a bad price in comparison to the starwars kits. Luckily I'm not really a fan of Star Wars. What other kits do you like then? Thanks for the comment.
