We’ve seen a host of delightful Disney inspired potential LEGO sets seek selection for production. Now, a fiendishly fun Universal Monsters LEGO IDEAS set seeks support.
Timing for this potential paranormal LEGO set could not be better. Rumors and speculation suggest that Universal is about to unleash a Classic Monsters themed land in their new Epic Universe theme park.
ITM readers, especially Haunted Mansion fans, should recognize the name Mason Price Betterly. Not only did Mason direct the fiendishly fun Haunted Mansion inspired video, “A Hitchhiker’s Tale,” his proposed 50th Anniversary LEGO kit of the beloved boo-based attraction earned a coveted 10,000 supporters. Unfortunately, the build was not approved for production.
It’s ALIVE! Universal Monsters LEGO IDEAS proposal
However, Mr. Price-Betterly is not done as a of gothic horror nor with LEGO IDEAS. His new project turns it attention to the very creators of the horror movie genre! Universal Monsters features roughly 2250 LEGO bricks and could potentially include six iconic toy monster mini-figures.
“In 1923, Universal Studios released the first film in what would eventually become known as the Universal Monsters brand. While there have been many versions of these classic characters over the near century since their debut, there is something that keeps many of us coming back again and again to these icons of horror.” – GoodOlPrice (aka Mason Price-Betterly)
This LEGO IDEAS concept pays perfect homage to Universal Studios legacy of thrilling monster movies. Those who love classic horror are sure to delight in all the deliciously dark details. Iconic scenes join catacombs, a dungeon, bell tower, and Music Room.
Additionally, two more chilling chambers include special features. A glowing chandelier and hidden passage add intrigue to the Grand Foyer. Meanwhile, in the laboratory, the creation of new life enjoys a moving lift to help with the process.
A three-story gothic castle, complete with cobweb covered haunting halls, ensures eerie excitement, but there’s more!
Six spooky screen legends take on form to inhabit this creepy ! Horror icons like Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Bride of Frankenstein, Phantom of the Opera, The Wolfman and Invisible Man could join this brilliant , if approved.
