|LEGO → System → Creator → 18+|
- This is the first Creator set with the 18+ age rating.
- This set features multiple callbacks to previous sets:
- Baron Von Barron is the namesake of the Manor Von Barron and appears as a portrait in this set. Baron was the main antagonist of the Adventurers theme.
- Two Anubis-Statues from 5988 Pharaoh's Forbidden Ruins appear above the organ.
- The head of the Sphinx from 5978 Sphinx Secret Surprise appears as a decoration on the wall of the elevator shaft. An obelisk similar to the one featured in the same set also appears.
- The hieroglyphs on the Obelisk spell Ogel.
- The crest in front of the manor is a reference to Fright Knights with it including Roman numerals which refer to 6007 Bat Lord.
- A Mind Control Orb from Alpha Team and Junkbot can be found in the attic as well as a part of 7412 Yeti's Hideout.
- Below that part a recolored version of the shrine from 7417 Temple of Mount Everest can be found.
- Pharaoh Hotep is printed onto a clear brick which allows him to "haunt" the portrait of Baron Von Baron.
- A skeleton resembling Slyboots hangs from the ceiling.
- Next to the ticket stand, a few Blacktron II computer tiles are hanging from the wall.
- The setting of a drop tower ride set in the home of an explorer is very similar to Tokyo DisneySea's Tower of Terror with that drop tower being set in a hotel owned by an explorer who collected relics under shady circumstances.
Lore notes in instruction manual
The instruction manual for this set includes lore notes describing the story background for certain objects in this set. Many of these objects are references to previous Adventurers theme sets, as well as references to the Alpha Team theme and the Junkbot online game. Below are all the lore notes included in the manual:
- The Idol of Everest - Snatched from an Everest mountain temple, it is said the tendrils reach out into the unknown. It also makes a great coat rack.
- The Obelisk of Evil - Von Barron stole this obelisk because it had the most evil inscription he had ever seen.
- The Organ of Catarino - Von Barron had this organ custom built in Portugal. He mostly used it to play TV show theme songs.
- The Heads of Anubis - Air-lifted out of the Temple of Anubis, supposedly they are "just for decoration, that's it and that's all."
- The Face of Sphinx - The very first Egyptian item that the Baron stole, the entire manor was built around it.
- The Escape Plan - Von Barron lined the Face of Sphinx with dynamite, just in case any curses came along with it.
- The Golden Dingus - As Von Barron reached out for the Golden Dingus, the Yeti suddenly appeared and ate his left hand! Luckily, he already had a hook for a left hand, so he simply replaced it with another.
- The Orb of OGEL - A prototype for the mind-control superweapon used by the Evil OGEL Empire. Von Barron always kept one handy "for a rainy day."
- The Box of Junk - A heavy, dusty box of junk. A faded sticker reads "I Love Trash".
- The Altar of Alhazred - It is unknown for what dark rites this heavy-looking stone table was originally intended. The Baron used it for light reading on rainy days.
- The Forbidden Skeleton - Some say Sam Sinister's car exploded while running from the law, leaving only his skeleton and top hat behind. Some say there was once a third twin butler. No one knows for sure.
- The Portrait of Samuel von Barron - As the portrait was finished, a strange glow started emanating from the ruby. Trapped in the Mummy's curse, von Barron was driven mad by Pharaoh Hotep's terrible jokes.
- The Resonator - In a failed attempt to harness the power of the Re-Gou Ruby with this device, von Barron accidentally summoned two friendly spirits from beyond.
- The Madman's Elevator - "How's my elevator to nowhere? It has its ups and downs. aaaHAHAHAaaaHA!" -The Mad Baron
