31 Days of Toy Terror: The Swamp Creature from Monster Fighters by Lego
* The minifigures are excellent. The monster fighter is named Frank Rock and he has a cool 1950s-ish greaser vibe to him. He has two faces on his head (one with sunglasses and one without). He also has a bunch of revolvers which are always nice.
*The Swamp Creature is also excellent. A clear homage to the Creature from the Black Lagoon, he also bears a passing resemblance to Mer-Man. He comes with a little spear for poking stuff.
*As always seems to be the case, Lego stuff is always of the highest quality. Their plastic and QC is just top notch.
*The swamp base isn't too exciting. It's more of just a little display piece to hold the Moonstone (an accessory every monster has which is part of the plot of this theme). I do like the little frog, though. Since my primary Lego display is a giant haunted world I have placed the swamp base alongside the Pirate's of the Caribbean set that has an old water wheel, so now it's like a big spooky old ruin inhabited by mer-men.
