Lego and Nintendo join forces to create a new Lego set, which is a block model of Nintendo’s 8-bit game console, the Nintendo Entertainment System, along with an interactive TV ad Super Mario Bros.. The two companies worked together earlier this year to create interactive content Super Mario-themed sentences.
Designed for adult builders, this new set includes 2,646 pieces that together make up Nintendo’s first home console, plus a NES controller, a game cartridge that fits into the console, and a miniature retro TV. The TV shows Mario crossing a stage from the 1985 classic, and a crank on the left side of the TV allows you to move the plumber up and down between the platforms.
