2 years ago, in 2020, LEGO partnered with Nintendo to market an NES pack + its brick-built cathode TV. On the strength of this success, the Danish firm has decided to repeat the experience with another console, even more vintage since it is the Atari VCS 2600. Scheduled for August 1, 2022 (a date chosen meticulously since it corresponds to the 50th anniversary of the Atari brand), this new adult toy will be sold for €239.99. A certain sum that collectors will quickly forget, due to the nostalgia against which it is difficult to fight, knowing that there are also 2,532 bricks to be mounted. In addition to the machine, it will be possible to build 3 game cartridges, representing Asteroids, Adventure and Centipede, not to mention that it is possible to assemble miniature versions of these cartridges from the same parts. What to evolve his set.
Another particularity of this Atari VCS 2600 is that the cover of the machine contains a scene representing a player in his room, 80’s atmosphere, in front of his television screen, his console, his K7 VHS and his posters all over the walls. In short, everything you need to seduce those in their thirties and over who won’t hesitate to take out the credit card.
