The Haunted House Creator 10273 Lego Set is a beautiful, if very creepy model from the Creators range. There is impressive attention to detail across every storey. On the lower floor, you come in through the grand entrance and are greeted by the host, who might just play a tune for you on the organ. Those brave enough to explore will find all sorts of treasures, especially if they take a closer look at the painting upstairs. The grandest feature is the tall tower that contains the lift shaft. With the finished roof on top, this measures 68cm high.
The design is made to open out so you can explore the build in all its glory on the inside or close it up to display the exterior. The exterior is one of the hardest going with all the different elements to the architecture and the little yard in front.
Bring the set to life with your phone.
One of the most interesting elements to this Creator set, and one that seals its rating as a LEGO set for adults, is the use of Smartphone operated features. This is a brilliant way to bring your new haunted house to life, especially if you are with friends that have no idea what is in store for them. Give them a fright by flickering the lights with the app controls. Invite their mini figures into the life and then use the Powered Up system to let it drop plummet down out of control. It is the little details like this that make the set so appealing as a haunted house.
Naturally, there are lots of creepy elements involved in this haunted house to make it even more authentic. There are classic features that older brick-loving builders can appreciate too. This includes the cobwebs and skeleton hanging from the ceiling. There are also lots of little artifacts in the house that you will probably want to be careful putting into place – just in case they are cursed. On the subject of classic features, the inclusion of the ghost mini-figures is a nice nod to the old glowing ghost from our childhoods. What is also nice here though, is that the mini-figure guests purchasing their tickets for the included one nervous-looking visitor in a wheelchair.
This challenging Creator set could really appeal to the right collector.
With so much to build, it is no surprise that this is a more than 3000 piece LEGO set. If you want a spooky 18+ set to play with or have a love of horror stories, this intricate Haunted House Creator 10273 Lego Set could be for you
