The first Tuesday of the month is here again and that means LEGO Brand Stores held the October 2014 Monthly Mini Build. For this month, it is a Halloween themed build with the Frankenstein Monster (40104). My store was extra busy today considering that it is Double VIP Points month. Also this month is also the release of the Series 12 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71007) and many people were trying to feel for the ones they want. As you can see from the images, it was pretty packed.
For the mini build itself, the Frankenstein Monster is a very simple build. You start at the legs and build up to the head. There is no special building techniques or any articulation on the model whatsoever. It seemed that many kids enjoyed the model because Halloween is coming up and it’s something they can use to decorate their house with.
It doesn’t say on the November 2014 LEGO Store Calendar but next month’s build will be a cool Rocket on a launching pad (40105).
