"I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for you meddling kids."

One of the most anticipated LEGO themes for us this year was Scooby Doo. Opeie loves the show and for me it takes me right back to Saturday morning cartoons, glued to the TV, searching through my cereal box for toys. When we first saw pictures for the up and coming kits I was desperate to get hold of the Mystery Machine (which we wrote about a while back) but as I looked more at the other kits it was clear we needed the complete range for our collection. 

I love the colours of the kits, especially the haunted house with all the purple bricks. We don't collect all minifigures but I do have a great collection of monster figures from the monster fighters theme and various other kits so I was eager to get hold of the great bad guys throughout the scooby doo range. What makes these figures so interesting though is that under their masks they have their costumes faces one side and their unhappy caught human faces the other, perfect for role play. They would have got away with it if it wasn't for those pesky kids!

The Mystery plane adventures kit (75901) is an awesome little kit which is great for the money and that bad guy along with the others is going to come in very handy with some of our builds later in the year.

 For me the best value kit is the Haunted Lighthouse (75903) with hidden trap doors, a mystery machine boat and 2 awesome bad guys to add to my ever growing baddie collection it is great for a mid priced kit. We are still missing kit 75900 Mummy Museum Mystery but we'll be snapping that one up very soon.

Well we finally have the team so there is going to be no end to our Scooby Doo LEGO adventures. For the minifigures alone these kits are worth the purchase, with loads of new hairstyles and outfits we'll be doing all sorts with these.
