Happy Halloween!

It is October 31st, and you know what that means! Tricks, treats, and scary fun! I've built another MOC for Halloween, this time it is based on the Adventurers and Pharaoh's Quest LEGO themes.

Adventurers Halloween Party on a Tomb ~ An adventurer emerges from a desert tent on October 31st.

Who's the adventurer coming out of the tent? Is it Johnny Thunder? No wait, it is none other than Harry Cane in a Johnny Thunder costume!

Deep in the Egyptian desert, several adventurers celebrate Halloween while on their expedition!
Mac McCloud bobs for apples while some of the other adventurers have a chat. They plan on trick-or-treating, but instead of collecting candy, they'll be collecting ancient treasure! ;-)

Some of the adventurers wonder where Jake Raines and Johnny Thunder are ...

Made entirely out of set 6497-1: Twisted Time Train. The swirl on the front really spins, the funnel moves like the original set, except it has an added bat which 'flies' out of it.

NinjaGo Graphic Novel and LEGO Harry Potter years 5-7 screenshots

Papercutz has announced a book series based on LEGO NinjaGo, the author of which being none other than Greg Farshtey, one of the people who developed the Bionicle canon. Read the full story here.

To me, NinjaGo is kind of like the Minifigure version of Bionicle. Think about it; power-wielding characters based on different elements (like the Toa), complete with a toy combat game (done at different times in Bionicle), with a quest to search for mystical items.

Also, screenshots of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 have popped up here.

Here is one screen shot from the upcoming game:

Pretty cool!

The Monster under the Bed

The Monster under the Bed

LEGO Halloween vignette -- The Monster under the Bed, based on early childhood fears. I couldn't decide between the opposing Vampire and Werewolf factions, so I just went for a generic monster theme for this vignette.

Jack used to be afraid of the monster under his bed when he was 5 years old, but since then he grew up and believed the monster was imaginary. Now, it has come back to haunt him.
