The PopCult Toybox
With the most eagerly-awaited set, fans can build the beloved Mystery Machine van, which also comes with minifigures of Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, a zombie, a magnifying glass, a possessed tree and a giant Scooby Snack. It retails for $30, and you can bet that more than one Lego collector will team up Scooby and the gang with The Ghostbusters Lego sets that were released last year.
If Lego toys weren’t enough, according to Variety, “A new 22-minute Lego TV special centered on Scooby-Doo will be released this year. Warner Bros. Animation will also release new animated movies based on Lego Scooby-Doo in a similar vein to Lego DC Super Heroes features.”
All the press releases conveniently overlook the Scooby Doo building sets released by Character Builders in the UK and Cobi in South Africa and other territories two years ago. However, these sets didn’t seem quite as cool-looking as the upcoming Lego sets.
