LEGO & Nintendo Partner On A Nostalgic Retro 2,646-Piece NES Kit

In many ways, both LEGO and Nintendo share an interesting history. Super Mario Bros, one of the company’s most prolific video game IPs, made its debut on the Super Nintendo in 1990. During this time, LEGO was also at the apex of its popularity. Over the years, the pair have collaborated on a number of interesting projects, and now, they’ve just revealed their most unique, to date — a Mario-themed NES console and TV kit.

The 2,646-piece project arrives as a fully-realized entertainment system comprised of a buildable Super Nintendo console, controller, cartridge, and television. Each item takes on retro design principles and nostalgic iconography from the era, working alongside unique, 1980s styling to create something truly collectible. To maintain accuracy and promote a period-correct feel, Nintendo and LEGO have replicated each of the entertainment system’s pieces to recapture the transcendental magic of the era, staying true to the original through painstaking authentic reproduction. But that’s not all. There’s also an interactive Mario figure that reacts to on-screen enemies, obstacles, power-ups, and music, allowing buyers to immerse themselves in his Koopa- and goomba-filled world. Head to LEGO’s website to learn more about the $230 collection.

Purchase: $230
