Tomorrow is the day the LEGO NES makes its debut for $229.99. The product is a fantastic recreation of what your brain imagines playing Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System looked like back in 1985. Recently, IGN did a video showing what went into building the set and what the finished project looks like in person. Best of all, the company revealed a secret extra feature the LEGO Group kept hidden from the general public.
The LEGO NES is so very splendid
You can watch the whole video below, but pay particularly close attention at the 6:00 mark:
Wow. It wasn’t enough for fans to witness a recreation of World 1-1 in real-time on the CRT television. No, the LEGO Group had to include a tiny replica of World 1-2 inside the actual NES, as well. The corporation even included the hidden warp pipes to Worlds 2 through 4 for good measure.
The whole project looks meticulously crafted by people who really care about the NES and its legacy. I’m totally going to buy a LEGO NES with my next stimulus check from the government.
Enthusiasts, did this easter egg push you over the edge into purchasing a LEGO NES? Or is the toy a bit too pricey for you during these tough economic times? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section!
