Lego Monster Fighters + Lego news

And here it is... our collection of Lego Monster Fighters! They are all proudly showcased in our home.

We love the castle. Its well built, lots of cool details, great minifigures and accessories.

As you can see there are lots of vehicles that comes with the "heroes". I wish they would have offered more "bad guys" instead. 

My personal favourite is the laboratory, simply awesome!

There is a new Lego MMO coming soon! Isaac and I loved Lego Universe but sadly the game's servers were closed last January.

Online game developer Funcom revealed that it's signed a deal with Lego to make an online game based on Lego Minifigures.

Lego Minifigures, of course, are the little inhabitants of the Lego universe: whether that is knights or policemen, Minifigures have been a Lego mainstay for decades.

According to the release, "The massively multiplayer online game that Funcom will develop based on the Lego Minifigures franchise will focus on maximum accessibility. Funcom and the LEGO Group will work together to make the game available to consumers in their online channels and will be coordinating activities to provide a broad and enhanced experience for the product line."

Back in 2010, game developer NetDevil released a Lego MMO called Lego Universe. The game's servers were shutdown earlier this year.

"The market for family-friendly online experiences intended for children and youngsters is brimming with potential," says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas. "Being able to work with a world-renowned brand such as the Lego brand to develop an MMO for this audience is incredibly exciting to us as game developers and for Funcom as a company. This is source material we all know and love and we simply cannot wait to get started working with the Lego Group on realizing this exciting project."

There is also a Lego City game coming to the Wii U and hopefully other consoles. It looks like Grand Theft Auto but with Lego!

Here's the very cool Lego Marvel Super Heroes - TV Short!

And here's an great 45 minutes video tour of Brickworld 2012 Lego Convention in Chicago!


  1. My daughter wants that monster castle!

  2. Sweet! Am holding out for the haunted house. It is the only time i have ever wanted a Lego set in it's size and price and am hoping to have it for Christmas so we shall see.

    1. Cool!

      The haunted hill looks sweet but I doubt we will get it. There is already so many other sets we want.
