When you write a press release that starts with, "the LEGO Group today announced a LEGO® Nintendo Entertainment System™ (NES) Building Kit for adults, letting grown-up fans create their own NES console with LEGO bricks," you have 100% of my attention until I'm distracted by the idea that you can crank this brick TV to make the game move... 

As a dude who grew up playing Super Mario Bros on the NES on the simultaneously heaviest and oldest TV known to humankind, this looks super awesome!

Listen Live Now on 107.7 The End – Alternative. Seattle

When the dude blows into the "cartridge" but looks too young to have ever needed to work his 80's-gaming-repair-man magic... good holler at us old school gamers. This thing looks awesome. Appropriately, they got the ridiculously short cable length juuuuust right. I think I'm actually more pumped to build the television set than the console!
