It’s not Halloween yet, but don’t tell Lego that.

The global toymaker has unveiled its $180 Lego Haunted House set, which will be part of its Monster Fighters line, and which it plans to launch in September. The new set has three floors of “creepy creations and ghastly ghouls,” according to the company, and features a hidden staircase, an attic gramophone, spider webs, and broken floorboards.

All this, of course, would endanger any visitor — if the set were a real house. But while you won’t be able to step inside the haunted house, six special minifigures that the set comes with can be placed inside. Those six are Lord Vampyre and his bride, two glow-in-the-dark ghosts, and Monster and Zombie chef and butler.

It’s hard to say why Lego decided to start selling this set in September rather than waiting until closer to Halloween. But suffice it to say, those who are old enough to play with it — Lego suggests it is aimed at those 14 and up — will have 2,064 pieces with which to create creepy mayhem.
