The video has suddenly been pulled, so I'd say that's a pretty good confirmation. Tohst noticed another modular right after R2, which looks like a haunted house.

That house definitely caught my attention when I watched the video. Must be for later in the year, released once Monster Fighters (probably unrelated to the theme) is in stores. Doesn't look like it'll fit with the rest of the modulars though.

yeah modulars is a bit of wishful thinking, but i'd love it of they did some sort of abandoned house from a homeowner refusing to sell his land to the big city contractor.

Been hoping for a large haunted house for a long time, looking forward to it!

Yeah, I've been hoping for a very long time that they would come out with a haunted house and for the last several surveys have been requesting that Lego extend the holiday line of buildings to encompass Halloween. Hopefully they will start to expand the holiday line. This one looks awesome and think it will go great with the haunted train.

Or if they used their Disney license, a Modulars-compatible "Up" house. XD

Wow, Haunted House is instant classic.

Right up there with:

Imperial Flagship
UCS Statue of Liberty
UCS Millenium Falcon

coolest set ever.

ps- Am i the only one that thinks the modulars aren't that great(with the exception of Fire Station because its somewhat iconic)? Why would you taint a perfectly good Haunted House like this by including it in a line that appeals to a limited demographic?

Limited demographic being AFOL's and wealthy grandmothers.

THANKS ONIONS AND CREW FOR THESE MOST EXCELLENT IMAGES!

Finally, glad to see Lego is using the old tray matter when it comes to the "new" Monster Fighters theme by adding a haunted house. Even if it is someones idea of a "slip-up" to get our are hopes up?
Can't say I'm surprised, but will say it's long overdue, as there have been many custom built ones out there to prove that there is a market for something like this. Given that the new range of modular houses are proving as popular as ever and now the new Monster fighter theme is about to be a hit, this adds fuel to the fire.
Now from what I can make of the grainy picture it doe's look a bit like either the addams family or Norman Bates house, though more the latter I think.
I hope the thing is a playable set and not just to look at and that it opens, some working props would be nice and dare I say it that Lego will this time spring for a decent cardboard background to add mood to the set, (wishful thinking?)
As for the characters, a Norman Bates is too much to hope for as to a mad axe person, but a zombie or two isn't?
I hope pictures of this come out soon and who knows maybe a cludo house is next?

Regards Marty

Any guesses as to when we'll get more info on these sets?

What about the new part he talks about that allows for putting two plates back to back and connecting them with a brick like that? AMAZING!

Agreed, the canopy looks weird, but everything else looks cool.
