The Top 5 LEGO Halloween Minifigures

26th October 2023

LEGO has given us many scary themes and subthemes over the years, and Halloween-based sets have long been a mainstay of LEGO's seasonal portfolio. Therefore, when you think of the traditional horror movie characters, LEGO has pretty much produced them all in minifigure form, from vampires, to mummies, zombies, ghosts, and werewolves.

The classic LEGO ghost was the first creepy character to come along in 1990, followed by the skeleton in 1995. LEGO Studios, LEGO Monster Fighters, LEGO Scooby Doo, and LEGO Collectible Minifigures series has since provided us with many more frightful minifigures.

With Halloween just around the corner, the Brick Ranker team has chosen its five favourite spooky minifigures.

LEGO Headless Horseman

5. Headless Horseman (scd002)

The Headless Horseman (a.k.a. Elwood Crane) featured in Episode 5 of the first series of The Scooby-Doo Show. This minifigure appeared in the 75901 Mystery Plane Adventures set from 2015. The pumpkin headpiece makes this a very unique minifigure with a distinctive look. The piece has been used in several other sets as an accessory, but has only been used on one other occasion for a minifigure.

We're big fans of the Scooby Doo theme and think it a shame they didn't do more. With so many great villains and monsters from the TV shows, they warrant a separate Collectible Minifigure series of their own…

LEGO Lord Vampyre

4. Lord Vampyre (mof007)

No list of Halloween minifigures would be complete without a vampire. With many to choose from, we've gone with Lord Vampyre as our favourite. He appeared in the two sets from the Monster Fighters theme and a seasonal Halloween set. His two cloak combo, which is actually a single cape piece, has been used for several LEGO villains over the years, including many vampires. He's arguably the most sinister spooky minifigure, which is why he makes our list.

LEGO Monster Butler (Frankenstein)

3. Monster Butler (mof020)

We've had several takes on a Frankenstein style monster over the years. The best of these in our opinion is this Monster Fighters version. The special moulded headpiece effectively depicts the monster's oversized head and the grey skin tone works well to convey his lifeless skin. Being dressed in a butler uniform, the minifigure has a likeness to Lurch from the Addams Family.

LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer

2. Mummy Queen (col347)

The Mummy Queen is one of many spooky minifigure coming from LEGO's Collectible Minifigure range. LEGO has produced several mummy minifigures, but at the time of writing, the Mummy Queen is one of only two mummies to feature arm printing. It's an incredibly detailed minifigure and we love the use of gold and turquoise. The minifigure's dual printed head also means it doubles up as an excellent historical character for any Egyptian-style builds. Overall, it's a fantastic looking minifigure.

LEGO Beetlejuice minifigure

1. Beetlejuice (dim050)

The Beetlejuice movie is a cult classic, with a plot centering on a recently deceased couple who contact the bio-exorcist Beetlejuice to help scare away their home's new living occupants. As part of the 9th wave of LEGO Dimensions fun packs, we got a minifigure of Beetlejuice, who looks fantastic in his iconic black and white suit. The yellow-green hairpiece also does a great job in capturing the character's likeness and has only been used once in that colour for this minifigure. All of Beetlejuice's parts are exclusive, making this a truly unique minifigure.

So there you have it, our favourite minifigures to add to your collection this Halloween.
