    250 quid for some plastic bricks whilst a actual NES costs less then 100?
    Pass.

    Those commenting about the price are out of the loop on LEGO pricing. Is $250 a lot for a nonfunctional toy? Sure. I will agree with that. But it's not overly expensive for a nearly 3000 piece Lego kit.

    Can't wait to see someone squeeze a Switch or something like that into one of these!

    Oh.. thank you for pointing out the supposed price.
    I take my SNES request comment back. This is stupid.

    I'll wait for a Virtual Boy one.
    It just sounds like a fun build.
    Hopefully they make some more affordable mini kits too.
    A working controller kit would be fun as well but thats more an unoffcial thing.

    Better yet I'd be down for some F-Zero Falcon/Golden Fox , Starfox arwings, Chibi robo, metroid samus ship kits but thats too unlikely.
    Plus I think we had mario kart kits from Mega Blocks or other block toy competitors but they were more toys than larger building kits.

    Hopefully they keep making more kits like this and its not a one time or rare and scalped to death thing.

    Bet this brings back memories of constructing levels out of LEGO and pretending that you're playing a video game for some people... Okay, it's me. I was doing that as a kid. ^_^

    Well this is neat.
    People shocked at the price haven't been shopping for LEGO in the last 20 years or so. That's how much a set of that size costs. Shit's crazy but not particularly surprising.
    I can't wait for someone to combine this with a motor set so you don't have to crank it manually :tpi:
    Or with a Mindstorms set to fully automate it :)

    (And how long do you think before LELE or LEPIN release a copy? :ph34r: )

    $250 is just a bit more than a new Switch Lite. Definite no on this one, and NES isn't really my thing anyways.

    Part of the issue is that this is cantonese and not mandarin - and Google translate is already bad at mandarin (and that's what their "chinese" option is built to translate.)

    On top of that, this is an idiom - so of course it is even worse at translating that because it translates literally 99% of the time.

    Yes it does literally say:
    大牛龜電視 traditional
    大牛龟电视 simplified

    "big cow turtle T.V."

    But a good translation would be "analog tv" or "crt tv" or simply "old tv"

    Edit: btw check out the evolution of the character 龟 "gui" en: turtle

    It literally looks like a turtle in its traditional form to this day

    Everyone complaining about the price being unreasonable has obviously never bought a 2000+ set before. Usually Lego is priced about $0.10/piece, so this isn't too far off. Plus it's a licensed set, money goes towards the license.

    But on another note, I would love to see someone make this a functional NES, or if the set was designed hollow to put an NES mini inside.

    I like lego a lot. It's fun to build and the models are really high quality. It's pricey though, so I can only invest every now and again.

    I...I feel cold...
    the world is an empty space, devoided of sentient souls...:O

    Seriously, my grand'pa bought me the wonderful king's lion castle in '96 (#6090 for the connoisseurs) for the helluya price of 1000 Francs (150€, not counting the inflation) and I'm currently rebuilding it with my son, 24 years later !

    Lego can make really good s***, but this, this is going a bit too far down the nostalgia/collectible/Amiibo/RetroPrison road.:angry: The point of these things is to be shared with your "poulpiquets", not for adults to relive and frame forever their long lost young years.
