Get your Halloween on with these steampunk LEGOs

The new LEGO line, Monster Fighters, brings supernatural creatures and pocket watches to the toy franchise. The train set has a throttle lever and a coal chamber with a little fire inside it. One minifigure has garlic and a vampire stake as her accessories. Austin Sirkin at WonderHowTo did a review that makes me want to play with LEGO again:

First of all, it looks great. This was the first LEGO set I've ever put together that actually looked better in person than it did in the promotional pictures or on the box.

One of my favorite little details about this set is the ghosts themselves. They could have just had normal yellow minifig heads underneath their shroud, but no. Instead they have terrifying black heads.

Correctly implemented, this set could serve as Halloween entertainment AND decorations.
