9466 uses the S4 scientist and Frankenstein figs as well. Though obviously they're prelims...

As for the theme... :-|

IMO, this theme sucks. But this though might change one we see official images from LEGO.

Looks better than LotR, and the return of ghost is always nice!

I bet they will look way better once we get the production images. I am excited, I love monsters!

I'll bet these sets if for real will no doublt fill the Sep-Nov end of the yr release slot. Agree with others that I'm more excited on these sets\theme than LOTR. If the leak was to get reactions from fans than Lego really should listen well, and that'll be to FIX up\finalize those LOTR sets!

Pharoahs quest replacement, fits the bill. Will hold my judgement on these until the production pics are out.

I'm with cowbug. Maybe it's because I love monsters, and the fact that the 'monsters' were some of my favorite CMF's, but I'm liking this theme. I like the style they've chosen, and that it's not a 'modern-day' theme.

Looks like remake of studio sets 1380-1383 with some new ones.

I like monster minfigs but the box sets are not looking good to me.... I prefer to put my hard earn money on Pharaohs Quest or Alien Conquest theme. Well, good for my wallet.

I don't like saying negative things about Lego since I enjoy the toy so much but Monster Fighters reminds me of Time Twisters...

sure looks like it! looks like a good fig.
check out the much better shot on brickipedia:
http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/The_Swamp_Monster" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

these will all come in handy for halloween MOCs. :)

it does seem a bit like a retread of some old studio/time twisters stuff,
but a cast improvement over the time travel stuff. that was awful.
studios... i kinda liked.
and with these, we get a kind of retro munsters feel.

i'm diggin that large castle.
dracula's bride!
...cue Outkast's Dracula's Wedding. :)

I think these sets are fantastic. With the Monster Studios sets fetching ridiculous prices on the market now, it'll be a nice treat to pick these up for retail or on sale. A friend of mine and I hosted a contest awhile back and the prizes were all of the Studios horror sets. I'll wait for a sale and pick up two again-one for myself and one for future contests.

For some this will be a retread, but I think that this theme could sell well. A haunted castle just sounds like a sure thing,

I think these sets look great. The ghost train and haunted castle are going to be hard to resist.

Interesting. Looks like a weird blend of Steampunk and something else.

This theme seems based off of most of the CMFs...Maybe we'll have a Warrioresque theme soon enough.
