LEGO Atari 2600: The console is now brick-built, available starting August 1st


LEGO has announced a new set dedicated to the iconic Atari 2600 , the video game console that marked an era. The box includes 2,532 pieces. It is not the first time that a vintage console has received the ‘LEGO treatment’.

The brick replica of the Atari 2600 console will be available for purchase starting August 1, at a price of 239.99 euros. Precisely on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Atari.

It is simply a wonderful set. The console is practically re-proposed in 1: 1 scale. We find three cartridges with some of the video games that made the Atari brand immortal: Centipede, Asteroids and Adventure (which is considered the first video game to have included an easter egg).

We also find a replica of the controller, while this time – unlike what is included in the set dedicated to the NES – we do not also find a replica of a vintage TV. It doesn’t matter, because the console can be opened to reveal a gorgeous diorama of a ‘nerd’ room from the 80s. In short, a truly wonderful gem.
