Good to see the zombie back on the market again- the bricklink prices skyrocketed, so even though this is a palette swap it should be easier to amass some.

The pop set looks a bit washed out/monotone but it's nice to see the rock chick hair in black, making it a bit more transferable.

Is it just the packaging or are witches hands grey/sand blue? Seems odd to switch them from black? Unless the photographer got them mixed up with the zombies hands.

Fingers crossed for a historical warriors pack in the future! A re-coloured gladiator/spartan/roman would be a-mazing. I'd hazard a guess at a minotaur, gladiator +1 other set.

A caveman/woman set would be great as well (especially if they re-coloured their hair).

A dwarf, elf +1 set is probably too much to hope for, with LOTR going on.

I can't say I'm thrilled that they've found a way to charge even more for collectible minifigs, but I will be buying at least one copy of the monster pack.

I will probably buy two monster packs...for the ghost and its chain only. Not so thrilled that the witch is in there..I have like a ton of her already.

You might be better off buying the ghost polybag http://brickset.com/detail/?set=30201-1 instead (if you see any). That said, if you re-sold the zombie from this pack you could probably make a lot of your money back also.

Currently that set is only available in Europe. And yes, I do actually own several. But, it is a different chain and yes, I do want more of these ghosts. But I guess this is the first of the three of these collections that has any actual interest for me, which is encouraging that they will begin making more that have interest.

As far as resale goes, these are not an actual set. LEGO has said in the past that items that are not sets (ie chess sets, magnet sets, battle packs, etc.) contain the China figs. These do not sell as well or for the inflated amount of money that a collecti fig does.

The monsters don't really interest me as much as they might some other people. I really hope they get to the romans and other castely figures, I am willing to accept a lower quality if they help me diversify, and help define a time frame.
