Lego has announced that it will be releasing five new sets of Scooby-Doo-themed Legos, coming in August.
The sets include the classic Mystery Machine, The Haunted Lighthouse, a Mummy Museum Mystery and a Mystery Mansion and of course little Lego minifigures of Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred so you can “Ruh-Roh,” “Yoinks”, “Jinkies,” “Jeepers” and uhhh, “Let’s split up, gang” through your brick-built adventures.
In addition to the sets, there will also be a Lego-style animated special featuring the Scooby gang.

“Fans always wonder which properties may come to life in Lego form, and this year we are thrilled to bring all of the mystery, humor and hijinks of the Scooby-Doo universe to life in Lego toys and animated content,” Lego Group vp licensing and entertainment Jill Wilfert said in a statement about the deal. “We constantly review properties to find those with global reach, great characters and stories and inherent building and role play opportunities. And we think that Scooby-Doo delivers on all of these while also driving strong appeal among collectors and today’s parents, who have strong nostalgia for the Lego brand from their own childhoods.”
