A Polish priest has warned parents that a new range of monster and zombie Legos are a tool of Satan and could "destroy" children's souls.
Slawomir Kostrzewa says Lego has moved to the dark side with their Monster Fighters and Zombie figures, which he slammed as being "about darkness and the world of death," News.com.au reported.
He added that friendly fellows have been replaced by dark monsters, according to the Telegraph.
He asserted that these toys can have a negative effect on children, and can destroy their souls and lead them to the dark side.
The Lego Monster range includes Lord Vampyre, a Dracula-type character who fights other Lego characters as he battles to "cloak the world in darkness".
Father Kostrzewa pointed to New Zealand research that showed Lego facial expressions have become angrier and are increasingly based on conflict, and that this could affect children's development.
