Haha ha…. It’s like a right of passage for a parent.

This is the set I picked up recently. 2012 Monster Fighters 10228. Probably the best looking haunted house IMO. Next year I’m going to add a light kit to it as well and build a great spooky Halloween display. Check out this kit with sound…



The only thing bad about these old Lego sets that use that reddish brown brick is that color tends to get brittle and break. Lego finally acknowledged it in 2018 and will replace the pieces that are made better. I’m reaching out to them now. I read a few posts in forums where they have been able to get the entire color replaced except for the shutters and boarded window because they don’t currently make them. Wish me luck!

Lego has an amazing replacement policy. I accidentally lost a tiny piece of my son's and went online to find a replacement. I filled out a form and the piece arrived less than a week later at no charge.

I thought the same. I’d imagine there is a licensing fee that goes to Fender as well. Not as pricey as the piano which now goes for $349. It was executed better.

But for some reason not as cool as the Nintendo which screen actually moves and played Super Mario music.

Most don’t realize the Lego market. A lot of discontinued sets can go double and more.
Build that piano in Thin Mints & Oreos then you’ve got something.

They have been good in the past. I’m working on getting every piece they remake in that reddish brown replaced. Any Lego that has that color between 2012 to maybe 2018 will likely crack. They acknowledged it and offered replacement in 2018. I’ve already cracked four and broke one so far! The smaller and thinner pieces seem to be the worst. A nightmarish of a set to build but the best looking haunted house set IMO. Well worth the headache once I get the new pieces.

Here’s examples of my cracks.

It looks great and like fun. Ha ha… I always end up with a few extra too. What was your favorite part to build?
