These Cuddly LEGO Halloween MOCs Will Have You Hooked

Traditionally, this is the time of the year when we feature one or two custom builds that epitomize the creatively dark and spooky side of LEGO building. Whether it’s a cringe-worthy custom LEGO Facehugger or a full-grown LEGO Xenomorph MOC from the Alien franchise, we surely want to give these nightmarish creations the attention they deserve. But then again, who says LEGO Halloween MOCs should always be that scary? Why not make it playful and cuddly as well?

That is exactly what Koen Zwanenburg has in mind when he created his LEGO Halloween Cuddy Toys: Halloween Collection. If you recall, we first featured Koen and his lovely collection of Fabergé-inspired custom LEGO Easter Eggs several years ago. And true to form, he never fails to delightfully surprise.

More like mini-builds, it’s very impressive how Koen manages to capture the distinct characteristics of our Halloween mainstays with such few LEGO pieces. For example, the brilliant use of the 2×2 round plates with rounded bottoms for the feet of some of the plushies is just adorable. Even Pennywise will blush to see his cute counterpart.

One might say that Koen has already perfected the subtle art of custom LEGO mini-builds. He managed to capture all these details and more in just a limited number of pieces. Good ‘ol Frankie definitely approves this brick-built version of him. Be sure to check out the rest of Koen’s creations on his Flickr page. And while you’re at it, you may want to check out our list of must-have LEGO Halloween sets to add more brick-building fun to your collection.

From classic favorites, vignette-inspired builds, and large collectible themes and sets, these must-have LEGO sets are all head-turners in themselves.

In case you missed them, I’ve included Amazon affiliate links for these sets if you wish to add them to your collection. Any purchases made via these links will surely help to keep our site up and running.

LEGOLAND Germany Starts Building New Wing Coaster, Opening 2023

With COVID and its successor strains no longer the world-stopping menace of recent yesteryears, tourism-entertainment destinations are long thriving again. The same goes for LEGOLAND theme parks around the globe. Guests are back, additional park sites are being constructed and new attractions are opening in current LEGOLANDs. Still, nothing can quite match, perhaps, what Germany’s LEGOLAND in Gunzburg, Bavaria has got planned. This was announced by their official website, as told by German LEGO news source Stone Wars. Said attraction looks to be planned as the new centerpiece of LEGOLAND Deutschland’s Mythica themed area. They’ll be getting a roller coaster.

And it’s not just any roller coaster either. The LEGOLAND Germany press release specifies it as a wing roller coaster. This design has the main coaster body support two wings of passenger seats, left and right of the tracks. The seats will also be suspended, leaving nothing under the passengers’ feet for even scarier thrills. LEGOLAND Deutschland is confident in their new addition because a wing coaster already operates at Italy’s Gardaland. It and the LEGOLAND parks are all under the overall umbrella of Merlin Entertainments Group. The unorthodox seating could also influence the coaster’s aesthetics, to fit with the fantasy elements of area Mythica.

At present, construction has only barely begun in Gunzburg, with just the boarding area and the first hill constructed. But when finished the ride will take guests as high as 17 meters and as fast as 15 meters-per-second. LEGOLAND Germany expects their Mythica wing coaster to open sometime in 2023.

Build and Take Home a Frankenstein Head at LEGO Branded Stores Next Week

We’re just about to wind up the month of October, and followers of holidays know what that means. Yep, Halloween 2022 is just a mere two Mondays from now. And while LEGO already has some Halloween-themed goodies lined up, there’s still more in store. Ah, “in store”. Speaking of which, LEGO Brand Stores all over have their own little event to celebrate All Hallows’ with. As The Brick Fan would have it, this is another in-store free-build opportunity for young LEGO builders. And the “spooky” build for this year will be the head of a famous and classic movie monster.

Next week on Wednesday and Thursday, October 26-27, build a LEGO Frankenstein’s Monster to take home! Starting at 5PM local time on LEGO Branded Stores near you, get a chance to create Frankie with your kids. Yeah, that late afternoon timeslot makes for a Halloween-y feel before October 31 itself. These LEGO Stores will have limited materials each day to provide visitors for building Frankenstein’s Monster. Only those who have completed their builds can take them home, and the freebies can’t be conventionally purchased. It also means participating guests are first come, first served at their local LEGO Branded Store.

Rumor: New LEGO Speed Champions Releasing Q1 2023

Much like clockwork, the LEGO speculation and rumor mill has intensified towards the end of this year. The subject, naturally, is what new sets we might expect to arrive the following year. Social media tends to be a principal source of these tantalizing tidbits of future LEGO info. For instance, here are some new rumors coming from Instagram regarding LEGO Speed Champions. The car-based theme that’s been the “middle ground” between LEGO City and Technic continues churning out new sets. LEGO sources have also commented on a shifting trend for the line. And now we have some 2023 sets rumored to be coming as well.

Thanks to Brick Fanatics, we have this kernel of speculation on some upcoming LEGO Speed Champions launches. Instagram user @awesome_brick2008 gives us five possible sets. Of these, only one is a two-car combo set. Speed Champions was especially fond of twofers in their past product launches. Apparently, they’re toning that down and focusing on single-car sets come 2023. And again, LEGO’s gunning for licensed cars that have been featured in the “Fast & Furious” film franchise. And these five are just for the first quarter launch period. Here’s what to expect from them next year:

  • Ferrari 812 Competizione (76914)
  • Pagani Utopia (76915)
  • Porsche 963 (76916)
  • “Fast & Furious” Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 (76917)
  • McLaren F1 LM & McLaren Solus GT (76918)

The “F&F” Nissan will be a New Years 2023 release, with the rest coming later in March. At least that’s how the rumor goes. So until LEGO officially speaks up on this then, it’s best to take the news with a grain of salt.
