Forums - Nintendo Discussion - LEGO NES Set Revealed

I never knew I wanted this until now.

My wallet's cowering in the corner after seeing this!!

I've never owned a NES or even the NES Classic. But I kinda really want this and I don't know why. My bank account is on the verge of being mad at me as I need to upgrade my PC.

I have that sort of problem too!! I'm trying to save to some day by a house, but now there's the LEGO NES, and possibly a big Nintendo Switch holiday title this year!!



That NES set looks really good and might make me buy my first LEGO set in twenty years.



Not accurate at all.

Where's the Philco TV set where I used to play my NES?

Seriously though, it does look really cool.

That'd cost a lot extra, and I'm pretty sure Philco shut down in 2019. -_-

I wanna put this LEGO set on my Christmas list, but I've already got another thing there that cost a lot. I wish I didn't have to choose!



That’s actually awesome and unexpected.

Now where is my Hyrule Castle set ?



Yup, this is gonna be hard to resist.

Saving to buy a house sounds like a really good idea for me to do as well. But NY is so damn expensive. But than the LEGO NES set looks so fun to put together and play with.

I am very surprised by these responses. I can't imagine anyone wanting to pay the cost of a video game system for a lego model of a video game system. Thats insane. Like literally you build it, set it on your shelf, and you're done with it. It's not even a toy you can play with, it's just a model that sits on your shelf and costs as much as a video game system. I would figure it would sell a few thousand copies to really hardcore gaming memorabilia collectors and that's it.

Now if it had a chipset you laid within the lego build and it actually played Nintendo games that'd be one thing, still way overpriced even with that but it'd be cool to have a working lego NES. But as a lego model that does nothing I can't fathom why this would cost more than a NES mini and why anyone would pay for it.

Fanboys like to joke about competitor systems sitting on a shelf collecting dust, but that is literally what this is, and costs the same as an actual video game system.
