Guest reviewer Shib takes a look at the smallest Scooby-Doo set 75900 Mummy Museum Mystery for us:

It's fairly common knowledge that Scooby Doo served as inspiration for the Monster Fighters theme.
As a huge fan of Monster Fighters, will Scooby Doo live up to its LEGO legacy?

Box/Instructions

The Scooby Doo branding is definitely eye catching, LEGO has chosen a lime green background, with purple used for the logo amd inset images.
I'm not sure why the green was chosen, but it does work well for the theme.

The rear of the box shows all the play features and also has a graphic showing all of the theme's minifigures in a classic
Scooby Doo chase scene which instantly gave me a wave of nostalgia and made me smile.

Parts

The majority of parts in the set are fairy standard, lots of grey and tan, but they are very useful pieces.
This set could be used as a parts pack for any historic theme, but could also work for space builders or certain Star Wars scenes.

Minifigures

Minifigures are always a big draw for licenced themes, and the greatest surprise with this line is that the monsters have reverse printing on the
heads to allow for the iconic unmasking scenes. Included in this set are three minifigures;

Scooby Doo - this seems to be the most basic version of Scooby, in a standing position with a plain expression on his face.
He comes in two pieces with the head as a separate part to the body. I was a little disappointed that the head isn't compatible with a standard minifigure body,
but it is compatible with some other LEGO parts.

Shaggy - I wasn't completely sure about the design until I had it in hand, but now I own it, this is a great minifigure.
First, it's great to see the two colour arms being made with fleshies in mind. The two face prints capture Shaggy's character really well,
one side showing a nervous smile, and the other a scared expression. I particularly like that they included his stubbly goatee.
The best feature of the minifigure though is the new hair piece, while it's very obviously Shaggy it could easily be used in other themes.

The Mummy - At first glance this is the weakest of the figures, mainly because it looks like a lot of other very generic mummy minifigures,
the pharaoh headpiece is the only thing that significantly sets it apart from the Monster Fighters or collectable minifigures mummy.
That is until you look at the rear head print and see the classic Scooby Doo villain unmasked expression. Just seeing that brought the
"I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids," line to mind.

The build

Most of the build is pretty straightforward, consisting mainly of standard stacking, and very little in the way of studs not on top pieces.
For its size, though, this isn't an issue. If the build was a lot bigger it might feel boring, but for a small set it's quite satisfying.

The completed model

The finished model, while not being incredibly eye catching, does exactly what it needs to. It looks convincingly like part of a museum
exhibit and has great play features. The burger hanging fom the back of the model does seem a little odd, but connects to classic Scooby Doo storylines,
where Shaggy and Scooby might accidentally apprehend a villain while searching for food.

Overall opinion

Definitely a strong start to the theme and while I would have preferred a continuation of the Monster Fighters theme,
this is a good substitute to keep me happy and definitely shows great promise for a long running theme.
