Atari 2600 Lego Set Includes Joystick and Little Lego Game Cartridges

If there is certainly two points certain to choose you again to childhood, it is Lego and Atari (well, if you’re a specific age). Now all those two legendary toys blend into a a Lego version of the vintage Atari 2600 console — complete with Lego-ized joystick and cartridges of Atari video games Asteroids, Journey and Centipede.

The Atari VCS/2600 was launched in 1977, while the new 2532-piece Lego set is based mostly on the 4-swap revision which arrived along in 1980.

The brick-designed console can be opened up to reveal a Lego minifig actively playing in a 1980s dwelling room, though the sport cartridges change into scenes from the actual online games. The 1980s-obsessed guys from Stranger Points would be amazed. 

It appears authentic, won’t it?

The brick-developed console is launched to rejoice Atari’s 50th anniversary (entertaining simple fact about the firm’s 1972 development: did you know a single of the founders, Nolan Bushnell, was also the guy who started Chuck E. Cheese?).

The Lego Atari 2600 set goes on sale Aug. 1 for $239.99 in the US or £209.99 in the British isles.
