Celebrate 50 years of Atari with LEGO’s 2600 build for adults. I grew up hearing my parents reminisce of their Atari days..which in hindsight probably only ended when my brothers and I were born so maybe they were thinking about having more idle time. Either way, as soon as we were deemed old enough to game we got the ~systems~. Heck, I’ve already started to look back with fondness on my N64 days so here’s dreaming of a LEGO N64 50th anniversary build 🤭
Take a trip back to the 1980s with this LEGO® Atari® 2600 (10306) building set for adults. Enjoy a rewarding project creating all the details of this replica console, game cartridges and joystick. Gaming fans will love the 3 mini builds depicting themes from 3 popular Atari® games. There’s even a hidden 1980s scene to build for total nostalgia overload.
