What better way to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary than with a Haunted Mansion LEGO set? This concept creation is in need of fan support to make its way through the LEGO Ideas process.

Conceived by the talented Mason Price Betterly, this kit could arrive in time for the attraction’s golden anniversary in 2021. Submitted to the LEGO Ideas site, the Mansion now needs votes to continue to its next step.

Haunted Mansion LEGO set

Inside the Magic readers might recall Mason Price Betterly as the director of the Haunted Mansion inspired short film “A Hitchhiker’s Tale.” Recently, Mason made more Mansion magic.  With the help of 2900 LEGO pieces, Betterly built an enchanting Haunted Mansion LEGO version of Walt Disney’s beloved Liberty Square attraction.

“When hinges creek in doorless chambers and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls… Welcome, Foolish Mortals.

As the 50th Anniversary of both Walt Disney World and its version of The Haunted Mansion approaches, I wanted to offer up this project up as a tribute to a truly iconic attraction.

Fans young and old will be able to appreciate a hauntingly displayable front and a playable back with plenty of spooky rooms from the attraction to explore.”
-Mason Price Betterly (via LEGO Ideas site)

Even the iconic front gate of this soon-to-be 50-year old attraction is included!

Figuratively Spooking

Along with hot and cold running chills, this Haunted Mansion LEGO set would not be complete without a few ghostly residents. Several macabre mini-figures attend this swinging wake. The following fearsome faces find their way into the kit:

  • Butler
  • Constance Hatchaway (Bride)
  • Ezra
  • Gus
  • Hatbox Ghost
  • Maid
  • Phineas
  • Victor Geist (organist)

Haunted Mansion mini figures

Of course, there’s always room for one more. Mini-figure materialization depends on kit costs and popularity. As a result, phantom figures could vanish or additional spirts may appear.

Cast your vote for the Haunted Mansion LEGO Set

YOU, dear mortal, can help make this mini-mansion tribute a reality in the realm of the living. As with all LEGO ideas submission, success is largely based on popularity. The first haunting hurdle has been cleared – on May 25th. This clever concept reached the first 100 supporters. Now, the paranormal project must gather 10,000 votes to be considered for production. Fortunately, the Haunted Mansion LEG set has a year to reach that.

Of note, LEGO Ideas is a program where builders can submit their ideas for new LEGO sets. If the project gets the support of 10,000 or more users, it is reviewed by the LEGO Review Board for production consideration. Not every project makes the cut. Those fortunate few whose projects are chosen for production are featured on the packaging and receive a royalty on sales of the item(s).

    Great concept and minifigs. The original might have broader appeal during its 50th Anniversary. Best of Luck!

    oh dear, another ultra-expensive adult lego kit. i like that they do this, but i can never afford them

    I vote AGAINST anything haunted, magic, demonic!

    1. Abigail Williams

      I saw Tituba levitating in the ballroom with Goody Proctor!

    This would be cooler if it was Disneyland’s version of HM, plus that’s the one turning 50 this year (not the one at Disneyworld).

    1. Tim

      Totally agree. Disneyland’s HM is turning 50 this year.

    2. However, as the article described, this vote is to get the Lego Mansion approved and an shelves in time for Disney World’s Mansion — which will turn 50 in 2021. Probably too late to get Lego to design, produce, and stock for this year.

    I’m kind of surprised there aren’t already readily available LEGO and 3D Puzzle of certain Disney icons. Castles, attractions, etc. I’d be all over the Disneyland Haunted Mansion and various other attractions if they ever became available in 3D puzzles or LEGOs. Come on Disney……do your magic.

      Well we’ve had the completed LEGO Cinderella Castle in our family room for several years now. Complete with Christmas lights!
