LEGO NES set confirmed, integrates with LEGO Super Mario

A LEGO NES — Nintendo Entertainment System — kit has been officially announced, heading to Australia on 1 August.

Priced at $349.99 AUD, the kit is comprised of a buildable console, retro TV, Super Mario Bros game cartridge and controller. The controller is described as “life-sized” while the TV’s dimensions are 8” (22.5cm) high, 9” (23.5cm) wide and 6” (16cm).

Moreover, the set will integrate with the LEGO Super Mario line; if you place the Mario from that set on the TV of the NES set, it will play original music from Super Mario Bros.

Take a look at the set in action below. What do you make of the (pricey!) LEGO NES set?
