Poirot`s Manor House Mayhem

13 comments

Lady Crimovel`s jewels have been stolen from the safe! Betty the cook has water all over her apron! The pie is not ready yet! Can Hercule Poirot solve all this Manor House Mayhem?

Poirot`s Manor House Mayhem would make a great Lego set because it is a very highly detailed, playable, 16th century English manor house set in the 1930`s with all the necessary rooms of a house and lots of minifigures.  It would look great in many different types of displays/scenes and incorporates the detail of an expert modular building with the simplicity of a regular Creator set.
