ABOUT THIS EPISODE

ZOINKS SCOOB! On the latest episode of Brickology LegoLee329 solves the mystery of the short-lived LEGO Scooby-Doo line by investigating deep into the history of the iconic cartoon. 

Good morning, good afternoon, goodevening, whenever, wherever you're listening, thank you so very much.ricking me a part of your day. My name is Lee. Parmy might know me as Lego Leeor legole three nine from facebook, instagram twitter Youtube Patreon, youname it. I am all over the Internet, and this is the brick Ology podcast thestudy of small plastic bricks. How are you doing today? I really hope you'redoing well and I'm hope, you're having a better day than me. Have you everjust had one of those days where a bunch of random little things just keepgoing wrong? Well, it's still in the afternoon that I'm actually recordingthis episode of Brick Ology, but it just seems like today hits just notbeen my day, I'm my youtube channel and my IGTV. I just uploaded a review for arock rater set that I actually wentioned in last week's episode ofBrikology Cut. Listen to that. If you have not already- and I made the reviewand then randomly the end of Edditing, the review, I was exporting it and mypremiers US likeaathat's funny and the the treaded beach ball of deathappeared and I had to force quit out of it, and I lost on my footage and to doall the review over again and a bunch of other ryndom things had didsisappointment. That kind of came out nowhere and had some cavities, which Ihaven't had in like twelve years. It has not been a great day, but I'mhoping that recording this episode bricology will help to kind of take mymind off things and relax a little bit and welcome to the fourteenth episodeof Brigology. We are now three episodes deep into season to of brickology andI'm continuing along with my alternating pattern, between a licenseand unlicensed theme. So last week was about rockwaters, which alreadymentioned, and that means that this week we have a license theme now: PowerMiners Fans. Next week's episode is going to be the power miners episode. Ipromise that episode Ha has been a long time coming now. The release date mightbe a little bit different. I don't know exactly, but there's potential Thi'mgoing to be out of town next weekend so because of that, I think that episodemight end up being posted on Wednesday instead of on Friday, so actually toetthat episode a couple of days early and then that means they'll be about a nineor so day gap between that episode in the fifth episode of brickology towardsthe end of the month. So that's just something I wanted to clear up ifthere's some confusion of why there's an episode coming out on a Wednesday,as opposed to my normal Friday release date. So this week, like theme, like Imentioned, is a licensed sceme and you know I mentioned in a lot of myepisodes, especially my episodes before this whole coronavirus pandemic thingstarted that I want to keep brick ology topical. I mentioned that like thefirst four or five episodes of brickology, and then this pandemicstarted and topical was kind of thrown out the window because everything waspostpound or cancel and whatnot, and a lot of my plans for episodes ofBricology have now been postponed, along with the movies or radom sourcematerials they are based off of. I was...

...going to do an episode about Lego,Disney Princess to coincide the releases the Mulan Movie, and then youknow what that movie is now coming out like in July. I think it it might getpostponed again. I was going to do an episode about Marvel superheroes acoincide, wh the release, AF black widow, which would have been a coupleof weeks ago, and now that movies coming out in November, I was going todo wit, speedh champions episode. When the new fastand furious movie came outOue, you believe it' s supposed to come out like in a week from today, and youknow what that movies not coming out until next year. Lots of things havebeen shuffled around a postpone because of the absolute insanity of thispandemic and Brikology has been affected by it. However, one movie, onemovie, has not changed its release. State Hen that movie, which is comingout today, instead of come out in theaters, coming out to directive vod.Videos on demand is the movie SCOOB, the Newest Scooby duw movie, and I hadoriginally plannedd this episode of Brikology, like a few months in advancewhen I first started doing the podcast back in January as like. If I make itthis far on this particular date, we're going to do an episode about Lego Scobedo to coincide the release of the new scub movie and because this movie iscoming out today, still even if it's on videos and demand non theaters, themovie is still being released. So that means that this episode that has beenplanned for like four or five months now is actually going to happen andthat's just kind of a good feeling to actually you know have at least oneepisode of brick. Ology completely go as plain, which is you know, just kindof it. Relieved me a little bit, so I'm excited to bring to you today's episodeof Brichology about Lego Scooby do now. Whenever I'm talking about a licensetheme on Brickology, I usually like to talk about the history of the licensetheme, and this is one of the richer and deeper histories of any legolicense theme. Now this theme has a very few actual lego set, so we'regoing to focus a pretty decent chunk up. Today's episode of brickology on thehistory of this intellectual property and Thi upsode of brick, Ologyprobablywill be a little bit shorter than the Norbar one, which I apologizefor it's just because Lego didn't make too many sets based off Scooby du now.Scoopy do you've heard of it. You've definitely heard of it, and this is aword I really don't like throwing around, even though I definitely throwit around a lot here, especially on brickology. The word is iconic and Ithink people always say the word iconic way to relax. I think iconic is a wordthat should be saved for things that are actually iconic like star. Wars isiconic, but something you know a smaller franchise or something and justrandom little things and right a little moments for movies. Not Everything isactually iconic. Not Everything really is a big icon. Inpop culture, howeverscooby do is iconic. It is one of the most iconic TV shows ind general lightalone cartoons of all time. It comes from Hanna Barbara. If you di not knowit's probably easily Hanna Barbaras, most famous cartoon, and I think thecrazy thing about scooby do. Is My parents greup a Scobe, do they're intheir s? They grew up with Scobe. Do you know Woell Scrop, a SCO we do meI'm in my is. I grew up with scooby. Do...

I watched a lot of these scooby domovies on Saturday afternoons on Cartoon Network Back in the day, Ibelieve it was like after the normal Saturday morning, cartoons came on.They would always show these ourlong skee do movies and I was alwayslatching them. You know I've never been a committed fan of ski. We do, Ihaven't, followed the property religiously or anything like that, butI know a lot of scooby do stuff and I've seen a lot of scooby DU material.I also watch the live action movies as well, and this is kind of one of themain reasons that I think this is so iconic is because clearly I was not theonly person in my generation of you know. Twenty some year olds now whogrew up with these live action. Scooby do films, actually fun fact here, thefirst ever Halloween Party itened in college, well tecnically after theparty there was like an after party, went back to you, know a friend's dormroom and they're like hey, let's watch a movie and we watched the first liveaction. Scoby do movie from the early twosands and I was like Oh yeah. Iremember watching the moove all the time when I was a little kid and whichis crazed. All these Ou know fellow college students of mine, also crew, upwith this property and also another thing kind of funny with CollegeHalloween parties. I can guarantee you if you go to a decent sized school andthere's like fifty or more people at any given Halloween party. There isgoing to be a woman dressed up as Velma, that has to be one of easily the mostpopular female Halloween costumes out there. I don't know it was just becauseit's a very easy costum Uslo, like an orange squeat, sweat squatter, that'sdefinitely aword an orange sweater and like a reddish, skirt, Ino, someglasses, but I swear every year. I would see a different woman wearing avelmacotume if not multiples, at the same time, an extremely popular costume.This series has clearly had an impact on generations and generations ofpeople and because there's a brand new Scooby de movie coming out today. Thatmeans that it's here to stay for even longer, because I'm sure there's goingto be people who are like six or seven well watch this movie now and then,when they're in college, here N, like a decade or so on, Halloween hey're gonnabe like you know what we should watch that Scooby Doo movie, that I grew upwith it's crazy. How long this Ip has lasted, and I think it's time for me togive a brief history of the IP itself. This is going to be a very abbreviatedhistory, because there's there's a lot, there's seriously a lot of history withScooby Du. So I'm just going to give you a very you know, kind of shortstory, version of its history, one small step for man, one giant leap frommankind. You know when that happened when it that happened. I've actuallymentioned this on brick ology before that was the summer of six in nine. I'MGONTA sing a lot in this episode. I just have a weird feeling that I'mgoing to do a lot of singing and todays episode of Bricology, and I apologizein advance, but the summer of sixty nine that was the summer that mankindlanded on the moon. NEL Armstrong took...

...that ever so famous step and said thosefamous words that also happened to be the year that scooby do first cremiered.Yes, that is correct. Scooby Du is over fifty here's old it's fifty one years.All that is crazy and the first ever scoobyde show was called Scooby. Dowhere are you and that's introduced us to? You know pretty much everythingiconic from the Scooby Duw series and, let's kind of run down what some ofthose things are obviously introduced us to all the characters we know andlove today, starting off with scooby do the Great Dane, which obviously GreatDanes are humongous dogs. They are so so big av you ever seen a great day,I'm just like that looks like a freaking horse. Great Danes aregigantic dogs and o course Scobi. Do He's no ordinary great dame because hecan like kind of talk. He doesn't quite speak like normal English, but he sayssome word. So it's like raggy, it's just it's funny. It's iconic itsgreat I'm saying I can't of wait too much of tha episode, but I mean truly,it is iconic the way that scooby do speaks and, of course you can't havescooby do without his owner, and that is shaggy. Shaggy is a great character.I Love Shaggy speaking of Halloween, like I've already mentioned, I feellike. I would make a good Shacki if you've seen me in real life, I'm tall,I'm red, headed and I have kind of Lanky, arms and legs. Coal definitelywalk around like Shaggy, Scoby and shaggy are iconic characters and youknow they are product of th S, and you know: Peace, love, no war. All thatsort of stuff and lot of weed marijuana was going around at these times, andthese characters are clearly supposed to be stoners. If you couldn't tell bythe way that they talked in the fact that there's a talking dog and somepeople just think the reason there's attacking dogs, because shaggy is highall the time and he's just hallucinating that there's a talkingdog and they also have an incredible case of the monches twenty four seven ocourse scooby do eats the iconic scooby snacks, which actually tastes prettygood in real life, but I'm pretty sure they're, just like gram crackers inreal life, an not actually dog treats. But yes, of course, so we have thoseiconic character and if shaggy has a very iconic voice- and it just feelslike there are so many various lines from the Scooby Doo series thateverybody can say, you have shaggy who's, always like Oy, school nowhe's,always saeing school, which is the name of the new movie, and I mean it's justgreat and then, of course you have the three remaining characters. You HaveFred, Daphne and then Valma, who have already mentioned in Velma of coursesays Jenkis she's, always losing her glasses and trying to feel for herglasses on the ground. Everybody knows this stuff. If you don't know what I'mtalking about, you are living under Iraq, you never lived, I'm consideredyou never watch cartoons or anything, because this is just stuff. That's likeliterally common knowledge, and I think it's pretty crazy- that these aspectsof a fifty one year old, cartoon show or common knowledge, pretty much amongall people across all generations, which is just a testament to absolutelyhow huge this intellectual property has...

...gotten in this original scooby Du showkind of introduced us to the scooby. Do Formula, if you will each episode ofthe show had a very similar story? Basically, what they do is they wouldset up the story with some kind of mystery for the gang to solve, and themystery usually involves something that seemed supernatural and had kind ofmonster. Halloween ask ties to it. Then the gang would usually split up intotwo groups: try and solve the mystery shaggy scooby would go, do their ownthing, then Fred, ovelma and Daphne would do their thing. They all cometogether at the end, they solve the mystery. They grabb the monster at hand,rip off its mask evealed to be a character that was introduced earlieron in the episode and then say it with me that character always says, and Iwould have gotten away with it, wasn't for you, meddling kids that alwayshappens to the end of every scooby do episode and it teaches young kids thatthe people messing with you in your life were actually people that youtrusted. You can't really trust anybody. Okay, I'm kidding, but that'sdefinitely a me my seen online and some more iconic themes that scooby do gaveus is, of course, the Scooby Du theme song and, like I said, I'm going tosing a law on today's episode of Bickology. So bear with me it's timefor likein La to start singing the scuba do theme Song Scooby Do Bedom.Where are you? We've got some wort to do now. Scooby do be Du wher, a you. Weneed some help from you now. I don't really remember the rest of the words.I'm sorry actually don't remember the rest of the words of theme song, but Iknow the tune of the theme song. I think everybody can. You know prettymuch sing that first line of the theme song n. This theme song has a very espop rock style, which makes sense for the time as a release. It Kand Freminds me something you might hear by the beach fowlers an maybe even theBeatles. It's a very iconic thing song. I think most people can sing and a fewmore things that were introduced. I pretty much mentioned everything, butone more thing: I need to mention one of the most ICOMIC media vehicles ofall time, of course, is the mystery machine, which is a vokslatcan styleTan. I don't think it has any official licensing, but it's very clearlysupposed to be a VW bus type Van, an the myssn machine. I mean it's avehicle. You see all the time you know go to Universal Studios. Today. Peopleare still going to take pictures next to the mystery machine. So that's theoriginal Scooby du cartoon. It really didn't run for a very long time andactually ran for like two seasons from sixty nine twodseventy, one o NeThousand Nine hundred and seventy two they released. The new scooby do movies.Now these are that's literally what they called them. The new scooby domovies, which were essentially just one hour long episodes of the TV showadvertised as movies, and then those you know came out for a few years t andI seventy nine they made the show scooby do and scrapy do inscribe. We do,of course, is like the little version of SCUBI. Do that's extremely annoyingwhich introduced us to that character, and then you know what it's time for meto just reel off a bunch of random...

Scomi do shows there are so many andIfh I spent time describing each and every one of these. We would be herefor hours S, I'm just going to quickly reel off with them. So bear with mehere, real quick, so it kind of run out the original Hanna Barbara Runo Skobi.Do we had the new scooby do and scrappy dod? Then we had the thirteen ghosts ofscooby do and then finally, a pup named scooby do now SCA. We do then movedover to WB CW and the early twosands, and we had a show called what's newscooby. Do then a show called Shaggy and scooby do get a clue and then,after that, it's mode of their boboomer rang into cartoon network where we havescooby do mystery, incorporated, be cool, scooby, do and scooby do andguess who, along with that, we have had tons of directto video movies andthere's way too many for to Ou ev me to even like mention them right here andeven a Lego, special that came out to his and sixteen called Lego. Scooby dohaunted Halloween also those are just the TV shows and Directav video things.We had to theatrical live action. Films Scooby Do, which was released in twothousand and two, which is again, is a movie that I personally grew up with,and it's not a great movie. The CGI definitely looks kind of whack thesedays, but I do have a lot of fun memories of that film and it's a funfact about that movie. The writer of that movie was none other than JamesGun. Yes, the guy, who created and wrote the Guardians of the galaxy films.Actually one of the earlier jobs in his career was writing the original scoopydo and then they actually made a Secuel to that movie called SCO DU to monsterson leash, which I have seen, but I don't have quite as many fin memoriesof that film, but that film came out two years later in the year, twothousand and four jump forward. Sixteen years later, two two thousand andtwenty we are now getting Scoob, which is a sname of the movie scoob it thenexlametion point on the end- and this is a CGI inimated version of scubi doom,making the first CGI version of the character. Okay, that's a lot! That's alot, it's an iconic series with so much so much source material and I thinksuch a big intellectual property. It only makes sense for something thisCartooni to be made to toys and be merchandized heavily, and I think amarriage between Lego and scooby do is just inevitable was inevitable and it'sactually kind of odd. I believe that a company, what was the name of thecompany- I can't remember the exact name. I think it was the company thatmade the bricks for Kreo, but it was like the Europ Prpan version of itactually made scooby dill bi scooby do biltable sets before Lego, so Lego's,actually not the original company to make brick belt scooby Du toys, but intwo thousand and fifteen the merger happened and we got our first ever waveof Lego. Scooby do set so it's finally time to jump in and talk about thosesets. I just did some mid episode. Research on the Google characterbuilding is the name of the other brand that actually made scooby do brickbuilt sets before Lego Dat ad. It's not the brand that actually made things forKoreo. So I was mistaken on that and I...

...need tocorrect my mistakes because Iacually made a mistake on my rock raters episode last week that somepeople point out in the Commons, and I don't like making mistakes. I try to dovery thorough research for these episodes of brickology a. If I make amistake. It definitely. You know kind of hurts my reputation and I want togive you guys all the correct information and if I do make mistakes,be gracious about it. Don't you know completely roast me but be gracious andpointed out in the comment section done below, and I will gladly acknowledgewhen I do make mistake now. Let's talk about Lego Scooby do sets last wishepisode of brickology. I mentioned the term one and done which just means thatyou have warne. I little theme with one line and that's it then it's gone, rockraters was pretty much a one and done theme and unfortunately Scooby Doobesides, like I've already mentioned that haunted Halloween thing which camewith propessional polly bag. They'll mentioned later in his episode. SCOOBEdo wasn't one and done lego theme. We got one way now, technically speaking,we did get a dimension starter pack, however, dimensions is technicallydifferent themes. I'm not really going to mention our focus on that in today'sepisode. Just wait for dimensions, episode that I'm sure will happen atsome point later down the line. We're just going to talk about the line ofScubdo sets. We got an August of two thousand and fifteen five sets andthat's it. That's literally all we ever got from scooby do and since it's sofew sets we'll spend a good amount of time focusing on each one. The firstsat we'll talk about here is the mummy nuwseum mystery leco really went forthe M illiteration on the title for this set and remember in my originalreview for this set five years ago, I said say that name five times fast, soMommy Museum mystery, my Musung Mel yeah, it's Pety, prety, difficult tosay the name of this particular set, but this is the smallest Lego Scoobe doset. It was a fifteen dollar set with one hundred andtent pieces in anincluded Scooby Du and shaggy. Now you're going to hear those two names alot. The two main characters of scooby do those two figures: they come in.Every single scooby do set. There are different versions, especially of Scobydo, but you do get scooby do and shaggy in some way shape or former throughout.All of these lego scooby do sets the rest of the set. You can probably guesskind of. What's going on it's a mummy museum mystery. You get a smallEgyptian useum display. What's what a large psarcophicus piece in the centerand there's a pretty cool play feature thes carcapicus had like a chain, youcould pull on it and the chain would open up to reveal the mummy inside ofthe PSARCOTHEGIST, which is a cool play feature, and the mummy is one of themore memorable villains from you know. Just pop culture in general, so I thinkputting such desirable villain character in a small set was actually apretty cool move on Lego's part and that letme figure was completelyexclusive to this set. Now a lot of the villain characters in these cou be dosets like I've already mentioned in the show they rip off their mask andthey're always like. I would have gotten away op that it wasn't far youmedaling kids. Well, you could actually...

...do that with the characters in minifigures from these lego Scoby do ses beking a great use of the double headedface play feature. You could always reveal the secret identity of thesevillains, which is a great play. Fagure makes a great use of LEGO's doublesidedface mechanic, and it's really just fun and super cool and adds a whole lot tokind of the mystique of scooby do, and it really, I think, represents the showvery, very well, and before I finished talking about this set, I actually havea fun little story involving this said. I always love to get my anecdotes aboutparticular sets here on Bigology, and I have a few of them with theserespective Liko Scooby Doo sets now legos go muie sets came out August,first, two thousand and fifteen. That was their official release state,however, Lego actually sold. These sets at San Diego Comic con a few weeksearly, so people could go to comicon and buy these sets and it wasn't likeyou know, some sketchy underground market thing it was Lego was literallyselling. These sets early. They also sold the Big Bank theory set early.They were selling a lot of stuff early at San, Diego Comic Kan and when thingsare out, early scalpers go wild and they buy up as many copies as they canof these sets and then sell them on after markets like Ebay and bricksetfor way more money than it's worth, and you know I I wanted to get a setearlior, something because I was still really into my yutuge channel. At thispoint I was about to go to college. I was like I need to get out as much goodmaterial as I can before I go off to college and I wanted to do review forone of these sets early now. All the prices for these sets were ridiculous.Lik is like Il get the mystery machine early, one hundred bucks they'recharging a hundred dollars for a three dollar set, and I'm just like. No I'mnot doing that. I can wait two weeks. I don't need to do that. I don't have themoney to do that. However, with this set the mummy museum mystery, they wereselling it and it had a big increase in price for twenty five dolars. Iffifteen dollar set twenty five dolars its say, sixty six point, six percentincrease in percentage of price- I mean that's, you know a big, a big bigdifference, but they were selling this set, but twenty five dolars I meantwenty five bucks. Really isn't that much! You know it's only tendollarsmore than the original price, and I was like you know what that's not too bad,that's not too bad. So I actually ordered this set a full two weeks early.I got my review out for this set on July, seventeenth of twothousand andfifteen, as opposed to August first, when they 're officially released. So Ithink it paid off, because this video now has thousands of views. It's mymost viewed Scoobi do video review and you know I think, paying that extra tendollars for this set worked out for me in the long run, and it's a very goodset and I think, a really really good set for its cheap price point of onlyfifteen bucks. The next set in the line for twenty US dollars was the mysteryplan adventure. This sat was twenty bucks with one hundred and twenty eightpieces oof. That is not a good price, tor piece, it included shaggy. who wasnothing different fron. The last version we already mentioned, but youdid get an exclusive version of scooby. Do this version had a sitting downvariant now there actually are two different versions of the Scooby DuBody. MoD, the head mode was always the same, but the body Molde was differenton these figures, one version he was...

...standing up in one version. He wassitting down this particular one he's sitting down and he actually has anexclusive faceprint because he had goggols printed on his face, which isyou know, a pretty cool and fun little variant of Scooby. Do you also got anexclusive vilvilin character in the headless Horsewe wnow had a brand newpumpkin piece, Jackalinar pumpkinpiece, it could go overneath his head and, ofcourse, like these other figures, you could take off the pumpkinpiece toreveal his secret identity, and the build of this set was a mystery machinecolored by plan so uses kind of like the Mintan lime, green and orangecolors of the mystery machine combined used to make the same color scheme buton a biplane build, and it was a very underwhelming buill design, it's a veryby the numbers punintented by plane that I just don't think impress anybodyand we've seen so many of this vehicle and ego before and after this set. Sodefinitely not an interesting bilt at all. The headless horseman was a coolvillain that had one of the newer style of horse pieces that came with the Lord.The ring set, so great mini figures were included with this said, andobviously twenty dollar sets are always good, but it wasn't a very good dealbased off it. Ts price for piece and the build of this set was prettyunderwhelming, which, honestly, I think this is probably the worst scooby doset. Unfortunately, thit's not a terrible set, I don't regret buyingthis set or anything, but I think, if there's any set from this line that youcould easily skip atd, not really feel that bad about it's this set, so we'regoing to jump from possibly the worst Gubi you set to probably easilydefinitely the best could we do said, especially voted on by my fans onInstagram who voted this the best set from the scoity line by no surprise.That, of course, is the mystery machine. This was a thirtydollar set with threehundred and one pieces, which means it has pretty much a perfect praper piecewhich is great to see you got subis Shuby scooby do and shaggy a kind ofcombined their two names there, which were not exclusive versions of thecharacters at all, but you did get an exclusive Fred mini figure. You had abrain new hairpiece just for Fred and, of course, he's a iconic member of themystery gang. You had to get this figure to complete your mystery gaincollection, so great figure in this set, but you also got a Zombi which is agood villain to get. But the weird thing is the Zombi had a printed face,but since a disagn, mee didn't reay have any hair or anything to cover up adouble headed face, so this figure just did not have the same reveal playfeature which I think is kind of odd. You also got a brick built a live tree.Another kind of strange thing going on with this set is this tree with likeweird arms and a big sticker with a big? U N, W kind of scary melt kind of waslike a pokamon or something very odd little bill, not the best villainsincluded with this set, but no one bought this set for the villaincharacters. They were kind just in on the side. You got this set for themystery machine. The VW bus style and Lego did a brilliant job designing thisset. This honestly has the design prowess of a set like a Lego idea set.It reminds me of the ECTO one or back...

...to the future to Loran it's a greatdesign, and it just goes well with any LEGO. Display really looks that goodnow they did use a lot of stickers pretty much. All the details on theside of this vehicle were accomplished using stickers, which is veryunfortunate. That is definitely something that I think, like o kind ofjust messed up with on this set hat, that really sucks, but it had a uniquewindscreen piece that looked really good. The design was nice, the backcould open up. You could fit a large amount of minifigures inside thisdesign. This is just all around a huge win of a Lego set, and this set wasvery popular to no one surprise, if you know relatively cheap mystery machineset was very popular. It was sold out a lot of places and became very expensiveon secondary markets, and I believe today it's going for like over ahundred dollars on Ebay, brand, new and sealed. So if you invested in some ofthese sets, you're definitely getting a good payoff from your investment. Now,here, five years later- and I have a pretty fun little story about gettingthis set as well, I did not order on Ebay, but I did et it early from target.I basically had to beg literally had to beg a target employment to give me thisthing early, because normally when they have a set early, they're always like,but there's a street date, I can't give it to you and told the streak day and Iwas like, but please I want to review early an my youtube channel and thisguy he doesn't work in my target anymore, which is why Tirtn ever kissme things early anymore, but this man, I think his name was Tom. I don'tremember, but we were like buddies kind of I mean I weren't really buddies, butI always saw him and always begging him to you know, grab things from thebackroom for me from Lego, and this guy was my dude and he hooked me up withthis set so Tom. For some reason you were listning this upsode of brickology.Thank you. So much and Tom also looked smack like Chris Prett. He didn't looklike you know, handsome muscular guardians, the galasy Pir Prat. Heliked more, like Andy Dwier, Chris Pat Pratt from parks and recreation, theearlier seasons, but man he looked like Chris Prett and he was always hookingme up with, like o sets early, so shout out the Tongu from target who lookslike Chris Prett. Thank you so much for giving me this set early, and this is afantastic lego set. Moving on to some of the bigger sets from this scooby dooline for fiftys, with four hundred and thirty seven pieces, we had the hauntedlighthouse. This had included shaggy and scooby. Do this? Was the sittingdown version of scooby do, but he had a more normal scooby Du faceprint. Youalso got Daphne who was not exclusive to this set kind of surprisingly, andthe villains worly lighthouse keeper. That was actually revealed to be awoman which is kind of a fun little twist because of you know big beardedman, who is revealed to be a woman, and then I sop swamp creature, which isvery its use of the same mall just recolored as the version that came withthe monster fighter sets from two thousand and twelve and well definitelybe doing a kind of a Halloween think episode with that theme in the future.Now the build of this set here is you got a very small little speedboat againwith those mystery machine, colors kind of a forgettable small side build andthen, of course, the haunted lighthouse itself. This lighthouse was built usingdark red and white pieces. It had striypes going up, it had kind of askull. Island. Look off to the sidehere...

...could reveal some treasure maps at Hien,treasure and whatnot, and it's pretty similar to the new hidden sidelighthouse set that just came out. I believe that cost the same amount atfifty dollars. So if you was see in the hidden sidelighthouse, this is asimilar type of set. It's also the only scooby do set that I personally don'town. I don't have this set in my collection, but I have built it. Yes,that's kind of a weird thing I have actually built this set. My friendNathan actually had this set and he lent it to me to do a video review onand I destroyed the whole thing and rebuilt the whole thing without thenumbereof bags by the way and IV filmed that review right before I went tocollege and I got to college and the new fource Friday force, Aweek an starwar sets came out. I priortize reviewing those and this review gotlost in the shuffle and was never released on my channel. It's a weirdmystery review that I did do. I did film, but I never actually uploaded myreview for this set. I have absolutely no idea where those files are now mostlikely deleted or just saved on an old computer, because I've had multipledifferent laptops since making that review, so those fils are probably kindof lost in the shuffle and we're never actually going to see my review forthis particular set. So a fun and kind of random little story behind thishaunted lighthouse set no last but absolutely certainly, not least forthese box tobe do sets. Was the ninety dollar mystery mansion with eighthundred and sixty pieces, not the mystremy machine, it won prettyhandidly, but the only other set in this entire line. I got any vote forScubi do was this set and this is a great set included. Shaggy an scooby,the standing version of Scoe do Dapne, who already came the set and anexclusive Velma minifigure, which is really cool, and one kind of weirdthing about these scooby do sets you actually only needed to buy the mysterymachine and this mansion set to complete the Gango Scoul Wewo do manyfigures. I thought that might have been a miscalculation on Lego's part,because I definitely would have bought the lighthouse set for myself if Dephnewas completely exclusive, but the fact that she was in this set as well manthat didn't have to buy that set, which you know is kind of Nice that Legodidn't make. You have to buy the entire wave just to complete the mystery gang,but at the same time I've definitely heard a lot of things that the setsthat weren't, the myssn machine and this mansion didn't sell very well fromthis scooby do line. So maybe Lego made a little bit of a financialmiscalculation with having it. You know that easy to actually get access tothese mini figures readher than getting you know, like all five sets toactually complete the gang. Additionally, for many figures, we hadthe villains in the set you had the vampire, obviously super iconic, greatcharacter. You had a ghost who head the glow n, the darken ghost piece, and youalso had a night minifigure, so nice pletthrow of different villains andthere's even an live Venus flytrap plant. That goes into one of the buildsof this set. Now before we talk about the mansion itself, you also did get avehicle. It was a mystery again mystery...

...machine colored. This time it was amotorcycle with a side car kind of like the one that came with that IndianaJones set very cool little build. You know. I don't think like. I makes toomany side car, so this is definitely a nice bild, but the mansion, of course,is the peace lawresistance of this set. It had a purple roof, they used theclassic hoggorts roof piece and purple which might be exclusid to the set- andI entirely sure do fat me up on that, but it might Beit's a very cool pieceto get n in the middle. They had a nice clock which had a cool play featurewhere the clock CAC actually rotate around and when it reached midnight thevampire was revealed. So it's like a revealing play. FISURE aclock playfeature: Pretty Cool Mechanism really good play feature for this particularset. There is also a couple of side rooms to this mansion. You had akitchen off to one side that had a lot of you know crazy things going on Nice,tiled floor and then a greenhouse which is where, of course, you're alive bing.This flytrot plant fits in, and I remember getting this set actually whenI went to Brickfarin two thousand and fifteen and I still have this setdisplayed. I still have this set perfectly preserved and built, which isunlike a lot of other sets. I mentioned on brick ajimmal. It's like I threw mysidn O, been. I haven't seen it in years, O destroyed it. When I was a kidluckily, I have this set perfectly built and preserved, and I'm superproud of that, because this is absolutely a great great, great set anda great way to end this episode. However, there's actually one morething Wen to talk about, and that is the promotional polly bag that camewith the afour mentioned Lego. Scooby do haunted Halloween movie this as justa Scubidu mini figure, the standing version, but I believe his faceprintwas exclusive, like his tongue, was in a different position than the otherfaceprints. That's it that's it. I never got this. I wasn't acompletionest with this thing, as you know, because I did not get thelighthouse set so yeah, that's it for that, and that's the last Gon we do set.We got the last Scubedo Lego product we ever got it school looks like legles ontalking Atho artheme, I'm sorry for my awful impressions andmy weird constant singing throughout this episode, but I had a ton of funtalking about Lego, Scooby Du today. It's sadly a very short live Lego themeand I wish there were more sets. I wish theyre making set paced off this newscoop movie, not entirely sure what happened. I just heard that a lot ofthe sets didn't sell, particularly well, and I'm sure Lego has the reasons fornever making any more SCUBI do sets but they've kind of gone down as a pretty.You know fond memory and I think of a lot of Lego fans minds and it's crazy,they're now five years old, because they set still feel pretty new, but thesets do have very similar bills. To sets like the monster fighters are nowthe hidden side theme. So I think Lego has kind of moved on and has you know,punked more money into similar themes and not having to pay for the Scobi dolicense, but I think it's a great theme. I have tons of fun memories of thistheme and I had a good time recording this episode of Brick Ollegan. Itdefinitely did accomplish that mission. I was talking about the beginning. Itook my mind off what was otherwise a pretty crappy day for Legoli here thisepisode recording went by very very...
