Lego Made a 2,600-Piece Replica of Playing Mario on the NES
LEGO continues to create a perfect lego replica of our world, with a LEGO recreation of the NES. Here’s more from The Verge:
Designed for adult builders, this new set contains 2,646 pieces that combine to create Nintendo’s first home console as well as an NES controller, a game cartridge that can fit into the console, and a miniature retro TV. The TV displays Mario traversing through a stage from the 1985 classic, and a crank located on the left side of the TV lets you move the mustached plumber up and down between platforms.
