I'm practically speechless!  That looks amazing!!!  I've been itching for the full reveal of this set ever since that slip a number of months ago.  Both the interior and exterior are marvelously detailed, and there is still enough floor space for the figs and whatever other details one might want to add.  This just became my most wanted set of the year.  Bravo TLG!

That looks really nice. So much character in it, with the spooky, run-down look. My favourite part is the record player, love how they've done that!

Whoa, it's finally been unveiled! This looks awesome and I can't wait to pick one up!! It looks like the snake's tongue is printed in the picture of the chef holding the snake, has this been done before?

So, the vampyre couple has moved house?
Absolutely fantastic set!
I love the zombie heads used as decorations on the front  :laugh:
Plus, with the additional heads we can make our own zombies!

The video is indeed private, but I have to say this set was well worth the wait!! :thumbup: Goodness, all that detail is simply eye-poping  :oh: and 2,000+ parts for under $200!!! This is without a doubt on my must-buy list, which does not bode well for my wallet. :hmpf: Such a shame. :grin:

A bit underwhelming, but looks great overall. By the way, "official" is spelled incorrectly on the first bullet point.  :wink:

Did you hear that?

The sound of my mind getting blown.




I'm a bit surprised it's being themed as a Monster Fighters set (since it really doesn't have anything to do with the theme), but I certainly don't mind at all!

Bonus house to live in modular town. Lots of pieces, ok price. Lots of modding potential - tweak into a non-haunted house, add an overgrown garden and spooky tree, more interior features.

As it'd need to be a standalone element ia town layout I even quite like the fold out approach

Oh...my...

This is so much more awesome than that first picture could have ever been! This is definitely up there with MMV as best LEGO set. This is damn near perfect. The exterior is so wonderfully detailed. Is that minifig hands I see on the roof? And, in a sought after color to boot.then it opens up to reveal a kick a** interior with lovely details there. The attic steps in particular I like, very nice folding ladder. That record player?! Too bad the records are stickered... :sadnew:

It's like a dollhouse for guys. I would've liked to see an exclusive MF there too, though. Maybe a prisoner of Lord and Lady Vamp? Oh well, the figs are great, the exclusives.

To steal this from someone(can't remember who posted it)  :damn: that's my mind being blown!

Wow! I'm quite speechless about this set. I wasn't to eager about it as most of you were, but now with the high-res pictures released, I'm pretty amazed by it's beauty.  :classic:
I think it's reasonable priced, it's in fact nearly a modular. It's a matter of time after it's release before someone converts this Haunted House into a modular.
Too bad they turned the movie to private, but I guess, it will turn up again soon enough.
