The Book

You’ll notice that the format of the book is different from most other LEGO titles from DK Books. It’s quite small, but still includes 80 pages of build ideas, instructions for the included minibuild and a handy round-up of useful elements. As with other Ideas books, it doesn’t provide you with step-by-step instructions to build any of the models featured in the book, beyond the included LEGO model. Instead, it acts as a point of inspiration to help you build something different from the LEGO bricks you already own. This can be frustrating as not all the images offer a detailed look the inspirational builds. However, it offers a nice spread of Halloween-themed ideas such as ornaments, games, display pieces and plenty more. The Ghost Ship is a particular highlight, along with the spiders.

The Minibuild Set

The book includes a polybag of elements needed to build an exclusive ‘Spooky Scene’ model. This is a small grave plot, complete with a gravestone and a few spooky accessories – a bat, a spider and a skeleton Minifigure. There is also a pumpkin, made from a Minifigure head, but I’m convinced I have the wrong coloured element. You’ll expect a pumpkin to be orange, but the one included in the set is more of a sandy brown. It kinda looks correct on the instructions, so I’m even more confused. Still, it’s a fun little build.

Halloween as become a far more celebrated event in the UK in recent years. Shops seem to give more space for costumes and decorations as the years go on, but 2020 will be rather different for most. Social Distancing and Lockdowns will pay heed to Trick or Treating, but you can still celebrate all things spooky at home and this book is a perfect companion for that. Instead of trekking around in the cold and dark, stay in the warm, grab some LEGO bricks and build some spooky creations. LEGO Halloween Ideas is available now from Amazon and selected book retailer.

  1. I have this book and also thought the ghost ship looked awesome, but I can’t find the green bone pieces they use for sails anywhere! I’ve looked through lots of sets and all through brinklink parts and I’m quite disappointed. It’s like they are not real Lego pieces

    • It’s from quite a few NINJAGO themes and one Hidden Side set. The Colour name is Spring Yellowish Green and the element is called LEG W Ø3.2 SHAFT 1/2 M. Part number 15064
