For those who don’t know, LEGO Creator Expert Modular sets are annually released...

A blast from the past returns next year, as some of the new 2019 LEGO® sets will reintroduce the Light & Sound system.

Retro Rebuild: Monster Fighters Ghost Train

Almost every LEGO® fan has that one set they’ve always wanted but never owned, their ‘white whale’ if you will. For me it was the Monster Fighters Ghost Train. I emerged from my ‘dark age’ towards the end of the themes run, so missed out on being able to pick the set up brand new. Thankfully earlier this year, someone was selling a selection of LEGO Monster Fighter sets on a LEGO Facebook group. Those...
