When the LEGO® Hidden Side sets sets were first revealed, there were a couple of sets which seemed to catch most people eye. Namely the School Bus, Ghost Train and huge school. The graveyard set was also used in most of the AR demo videos, so I hadn’t taken much interest in Stunt Truck set.

With sets based on other peoples IP on the rise in recent years, I thought the story theme was all but done with. That was until the announcement of the Hidden Side.
