Yesterday, news had leaked out that LEGO was going to produce a set based on the iconic Nintendo Entertainment System. Today, they have officially revealed the set. The LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System includes a Super Mario Bros. cartridge, and a classic tube TV that can be used to “play” the game. The set features 2,646 pieces. When put together, the NES is somewhere between the size of the original Control Deck and the NES Mini. The Super Mario cart and the controller can actually be inserted into the control deck as you would with a classic NES. The set includes pieces to build World 1-1 from the game, and you use a crank on the side of the TV to have Mario run through the level. If you purchase the LEGO Super Mario Set, you can plug the Mario figure into the top of the TV. Mario will follow along and play the level music, and appropriate sound effects as you run through the course.
The set will be available exclusively from the LEGO Store starting August 1st. It is priced at $199.99. Bookmark the Product Page so you don’t miss it. You can see photos and a video after the jump.
