Huge LEGO Vampire Kicks Off Halloween 2012


Leave it to LEGO to kick off the Halloween season with a fun and spooky statue! In their first-ever-all-night building event, LEGO got New Orleans’ local residents to work together with LEGO Master Builders to create Lord Vampyre, a 10-foot tall vampire sculpture made of 150,000 bricks. Set against the backdrop of Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, Lord Vampyre, who’s based on the lead villain from the new Monster Fighters line, was built under a full moon.

For those on the west coast, you’re in for a special treat! The larger-than-life Lord Vampyre will be reassembled at Legoland California to add to the park’s month-long Halloween celebration. The build will run October 6, 7, 8 and 11.
