Lego Monster Fighters
In the land of monsters, in a haunted castle, that…even among haunted castles, stands out as especially brooding and grim, we find the infamous mastermind, Lord Vampyre–who has just completed his research and concoted an evil spell nearly ready to be released—
If …he can just…combine…6 moonstones… currently guarded, by 6 (count ‘em, 6) monsters, his spell will eclipse the sun for good! Flooding the world in eternal darkness—awakening an entire Monster Army and unleashing MASS HYSTERIA.
Pretty grim. Right? But….
Somebody’s keeping L. Vampyre’s sordid group of monster lackeys from bringing him the 6 moonstones he needs.
Who’s waxing the Werewolf? Stifling The Swamp Monster? Vexing The Voodoo Doctor and his Zombies? Keeping The Crazy Scientist and his Monster in check? Making sure The Mummy is under wraps? And who’s keeping Lord V’s Army of Ghosts in their trenches? Who is keeping them all from crossing the threshold to the world of humans???
Five Monster Fighters. Five fearless adventurers.
Five indefatigable heroes of countless creepy confrontations—five faithful who have sworn to do battle with these ghouls, sworn to retrieve the moonstones safely, and sworn to prevent Lord Vampyre from plunging the world into eternal darkness!
- Dr. Rodney Rathbone – the brilliant, aristocratic team leader. Natch.
- Ann Lee – adept with a broomstick – a peerless destroyer of Ghosts.
- Frank Rock – a motorcycle rebel. He’s avenging a (paranormal) dog-snatching at the hands of Swamp Monster.
- Major Quentin Steele – an old-fashioned big game hunter, with a taste for exotic prey. Right… werewolves.
- Jack MacHammer – the burly Scottish lumberjack (keyed on The Crazy Scientist’s Monster).
Together, they are the Monster Fighters. And their battle to save the world is on!

Monster Arch Enemy: Lord Vampyre
Lord Vampyre is the fang-‐toothed ruler of the monster realm. A nocturnal creature, he sleeps during the day, hanging upside down or snuggled up in a coffin. His Bride is a deadly damsel and a master of hexes and poisons. The Lord also has several strange, winged henchman called man-‐bats, who hang out in the castle’s nooks and crannies waiting to strike. He’s always up to no good. But his latest plan to eclipse the sun and inflict eternal darkness upon the world is perhaps his most vile yet…

The Monster Realm is crawling with ghosts who guard the Ghost Train and infest the night air. They can’t cause too much trouble, but it’s best to vacuum them up anyway. When you are battling ghosts, attempt to turn on as many lights on as possible, put your fingers in your ears, close your eyes and say, “lalalalalala” until you can no longer see or hear them.
