McFarlane introduced 4 building block sets last year based on the first 2 Five Nights at Freddy’s games. They feature the Main Stage, Pirate Cove, The Office, and Backstage.
Freddy Fazzbear, Bonnie, and Chica are included in the Main Stage Set, and Foxy comes in the Pirate Cove set, which is exactly where those characters are found at the start of each round in the first game. Freddy is holding a microphone, Bonnie is holding his guitar, Chica is holding Mr Cupcake, and Foxy has a hook hand. The Office include Golden Freddy, who is introduced in FNAF 2. The backstage includes extra body parts for all of the characters as well as an endoskeleton and Withered Chica, who is also from FNAF 2.
These sets are designed for age 8+ and are more for display than for rebuilding. The detail on the sets is amazing, marbling of the wall pieces, black and white checkerboard pieces, texture on the floor pieces, functioning doors, and all of the character details. These make great display pieces for your FNAF fan.
Main Stage with banners, balloons, arcade game, posters on the walls, and 3 doors.

- As I have mentioned before, the level of detail makes these great display pieces.
- They are not really designed for play, although Boy Child makes a go at it. Usually he plays with the figures outside of the rooms.
- When you stand the figures on their pegs and then take them off again, the foot attached to the display stays behind and you have to remove it separately and reattach it to the figure.
- The curtains for Pirate Cove are pleated paper and are rather difficult to work with. I understand that paper is the easiest product to mass produce for this type of product, but perhaps a thinner paper would be easier to work with.
- The instructions that come with the sets are more difficult to follow than the instructions that come with Lego set. This is definitely an area in which the company can improve their product. Boy Child got frustrated and needed help with each set. Part of it was the instructions not being clear and part of it was difficulty snapping together some of the flat plate pieces.
