LEGO Halloween Minifigs: Tiny Toys, Terrifically Terrifying
The problem is: they're expensive and they take up a lot of room if you're a collector and keep them built. So as an adult (and I use the term loosely, ZING!) with not much time, and not much space to put into the various awesome sets out there, I was looking for something to collect, LEGO related, that tied into my Halloween obsession.
And thanks to Amazon and a lot of clever LEGO builders, I've found it.
What's fantastic is that many a LEGO fan has already customized various tiny figures into Halloween-related creatures of the night for you to collect and haunt your meatspace desktop or shelf.
You can find The Headless Horseman (complete with jack o' lantern), Vampire, Witch, Mummy even a good old fashioned Zombie (complete with chicken leg... because 'people' tastes like chicken).
I'll be frank: they're not cheap. You're certainly paying for that LEGO builder to assemble the pieces from different sets and build a complete figure for you. BUT, you're not spending hundreds of dollars on LEGO sets just so you have enough bones for your Reaper Skeleton Horse.
Awwwww, your very own Demon Witch Mummy.
Your mother would be so proud.
