10 Foot LEGO Lord Vampyre Is Raised In New Orleans

You’re in The Big Easy for the weekend. You’re caffinated, want to stay up all night and have some fun, so what are you gonna do? Build a 10 foot tall LEGO Lord Vampyre of course, what else could you do?. As Ace posted before the event this past weekend, this massive Monster Fighters themed statue was assembled by Master Model Builder Erik Varszegi with the help of the events attendees.

The 150,000 piece model will be dismantled and shipped to LEGOLAND California for their Halloween activities, which I’m sure will delight the children there and after that he’ll no doubt disappear back into the night. Anyone else wish LEGO had made those new bat arms in the black and red printing?

LEGO Shop@Home September Promotions, New Products

Monster Fighters GWP

September sees a host of new products and offers from LEGO Shop@Home. Let me break it down for you:

Free Shipping: Spend $75 or more and receive free standard shipping until September 21st.

Free Zombie Car: Spend $75 or more and receive the above pictured Monster Fighters set. Offer good until September 30 or while supplies last.

10228 Haunted House now available: The cost is $179.99 but you’ll get free shipping and the free Zombie car set. It’s like killing three birds with one stone.

New Architecture set – 21014 Villa Savoye: You know, the last few Architecture sets have really been not sucky, you know? Not sucky as in not as bad as the first few sets. There really seems to have been a turn in the quality right around 21010 Robie House or even 21009 Farnsworth House before it. The latest entry celebrates Villa Savoye, located outside of Paris, France. Villa Savoye was built in 1931 by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret and serves as a classic example of the modern movement in architectural design. You can pick yours up today for $69.99 and get 660 pieces delivered to your door.

10212 Imperial Shuttle returns to Shop@Home: This may be your last chance to pick up the UCS Shuttle for retail. It disappeared from Shop@Home for a while but has come back. Otherwise, it’s pretty much gone from the supply chain though Target seems to still have some for sale. But unlike Target, you’ll get VIP points and the free Monster Fighters set.

Zombies Now Available At LEGO Shop@Home

I love me some zombies. So please pardon the interruption with non-licensed set news, but if you wanted to get some zombies for your monster fighters to… uh, fight, then 9465 The Zombies ought to do it. It is a Target exclusive but you can buy it from Shop@Home right now. It will cost you $39.99 for three zombies, a zombie fighter, Mjolnir, a hammer truck and a pair of sarcophagi.

Hammers: the preferred weapon of Zombie fighters everywhere.

Sneak Peek Of 10225 R2-D2

10225 R2-D2 Sneak Peek?

If you had the chance to watch the video LEGO posted highlighting the new Town Hall modular, you might have noticed a couple of easter eggs in the first few seconds. If you missed it no worries, the screenshots are presented for you here in all their low-res glory. I know I wasn’t the only one disappointed that the 10225 R2-D2 didn’t make an appearance at Toy Fair, but this is a nice tease to tide us over until it’s unveiled at some future gathering of geeks. I have little doubt this was unintentional on LEGO’s part and still expect to see a proper press release in the future.

Thanks to Walter Boy for the heads up, because I rarely watch the videos. I’m more of a picture guy…

But wait, there’s more. How about a modular sized Haunted House that could be in line with the upcoming Monster Fighters theme?

LEGO Toy Fair 2012: Monster Fighters

Toy Fair 2012 - Monster Fighters - 9461 The Swamp Creature - 10

Monster Fighters is up now. Unfortunately, between Don and I, we somehow missed photographing set 9462 The Mummy. I blame lack of sleep and the fact that there aren’t any real play features or anything else notable about the set.
