10 Foot Tall LEGO Lord Vampyre Rises In New Orleans

LEGO Master Builders and fans recently came together at an event to build a 10 foot tall model of Lord Vampyre, the leading character from the LEGO Monster Fighters line. Starting September 29th and going into the wee hours of September 30th, the model of Monster Fighters villain slowly rose at the event held at the Washington Artillery Park Amphitheater in New Orleans. It was the first all night building event held by LEGO and featured not only the build itself but, a costume contest, building activities and a performance from the New Orleans Saintsations as well.

LEGO Master Builder, Erik Varszeg estimated the model featured 150,000 bricks, with certain sections being pre-built to simplify construction. Now that the model has been built, Lord Vampyre will be making his way to LEGOLAND California where he will be part of this month’s Halloween celebration taking place at the park.
