The LEGO® Nintendo Entertainment System™ Building Kit allows grown-up fans to create their own NES console with LEGO bricks. It offers a brick-built NES model packed with realistic details which includes an accompanying 1980’s style LEGO television set. 

The LEGO version of the all-time favourite console will be mechanically functional and includes a controller with a connecting cable and plug, as well as an opening slot for the Game Pak with a locking feature. The kit also comes with a buildable retro TV, which features a flat 8-bit Mario figure on the scrolling screen.

Here’s a closer look at the LEGO® Nintendo Entertainment System™ Building Kit.

You can opt to get an additional action-included LEGO® Mario™ from the LEGO Super Mario Starter Course to see him react to on-screen enemies, obstacles and power-ups, just as he would have in the iconic Super Mario Bros.™ game.
