It looks like the LEGO Super Mario set isn't the only collaboration that LEGO and Nintendo are working on. A leaked image, followed by a very vague tease from the official LEGO Twitter indicate that we'll be seeing a new project soon. Chinese website VJ Gamer appears to have images from this to-be-announced set, which is a buildable LEGO NES system, outfitted with a controller, a cart of Super Mario Bros., and even an old CRT television. The kit will come with 2,646 bricks altogether, and will supposedly retail for $250 when it releases in stores this August.

I know what I said about not commenting on Nintendo articles that have to do with new Nintendo stuff, but I'm looking at this because it's LEGO, and a remake of an old Nintendo console. I went to the Hong Kong based website, and had my translator translate this:
除左部灰機之外,成套 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System 嘅重點,其實喺晒部「電視」身上。外觀完全將一部舊式大牛龜電視還原之外,其實內部係一個手搖卷軸式結構,當玩家轉動旁邊嘅把手,「電視畫面」就會跟住移動,做到好似玩緊當年初代 《Super Mario Bors.》一樣。

...To this:
In addition to the gray machine on the left, the focus of the set 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System is actually on the TV department. The appearance completely restores an old big cow turtle TV. In fact, the interior is a hand-scrolling structure. When the player turns the side handle, the "TV screen" will follow the movement, making it seem to play tightly. Mario Bors."

"Old big cow turtle TV"? ROTFL. :P

At $250 it's a likely no from me. It's neat, and perhaps if it was fully playable I might even consider it, but I really don't see this being worth a penny over $120, if that.

I'm going to go broke as is buying all of the other Super Mario sets.

well I already like to put together LEGO sets and I like the NES so this is why I am buying it.

No need to justify, too much for my taste (for a Lego set), but it's your cash, I'm sure you won't be alone.

Could buy a plastic set of an almost 40 year old console, or a modern day ACTUAL console. But it's hardly and apple to apple comparison.
