First and foremost because it's a game-changing set. Sure enough, it's not common in retail, apart from a selected few Lego stores. But it's readily available on Lego.com. The reason it's game changing is because it's a modular building in a sub line. It's a massive set that appeals to the adult collector within a sub line that mostly catered to the younger fans. I love the modular buildings, and this set fits right in.
|Halloween and glow-in-the-dark toys are at this point synonymous|
And finally, just look at the set. Look at the glow-in-the-dark ghosts, the boarded windows, the radically sloped bricks in the roof, the pillars, the colors,, the cobweb in the cellar, the box art.
It's a stunning set. And I want it.
So why isn't there already a lenghty Figure Friday on the Haunted Mansion?
Ask my girlfriend, who, for some reason, won't allow me to buy it...
