Official Announcement of 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System

Whoa baby. This is quite possibly the most exciting set I’ve ever seen. 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System. LEGO has done a NES!

Weighing in at 2,646 pieces, costing US $229.99 / DE €229.99 / UK £209.99 / AU $349.99, it’ll be available from August 1st. Oh man, I’m excited.

Featuring a completely brick built (and pretty much to scale) NES, Game Pak, controller, cable, TV and so much more, this will be a set for the ages.

This is insanely cool. Check out the video below to see it all in action!

Not only does it look amazing built, but the Game Pak can be loaded, and the TV scrolls and the new 8 bit Mario tile moves? This is something really special.

Plus, connect up a Mario Brick from the recently announced Super Mario line and the sounds match too.

Even the back of the TV looks incredibly presentable! This set is going to absolutely fly off the shelves.

Check out more images below, as well as the press release. I cannot wait to get my hands on this set.
