Lego dives into the Upside Down with a ‘Stranger Things’ play set
Netflix’s Stranger Things already has a number of unusual if appropriate tie-ins, but this latest might top them all if you’re a die-hard fan. Lego is releasing a 2,287-piece Stranger Things set that recreates both the Byers’ home and its Upside Down equivalent in uncanny-if-blocky detail, including eight of the core characters. There are plenty of little touches — you’ll see functioning Christmas lights in the Byers’ living room, while Eleven can travel with an Eggo waffle in hand.
You’ll have to be a fairly loyal fan of the streaming series to pick this up. It’ll cost a sizeable $200 (£180) when it ships on June 1st, or May 15th if you’re a Lego VIP member. And if you’re a completist, you’ll probably be wondering why you can’t buy a Barb minifig or a rendition of the upcoming third season’s Starcourt Mall. If you can get past those hurdles, though, this might be a good opportunity to put your fandom on display… oh, and possibly entertain your kids while you’re at it.
