I am going to say it now, the best selling toy in 2020 is going to be the NES

  • I wonder how many will be wasted on those who will just keep them mint condition in-box? :)

    Looks amazing though!

    We were the first in smyths this morning for the starter pack and the one with yoshi too. My autistic 13 year old has been counting down the days. I decorated his room in a mario theme because he was so excited about it!

    I love it, especially how the level moves across the screen. 

    But it’s really fricking expensive...

    I decided to head to a Lego store (extra 15miles) at 9:30am opening just so I make sure I stand a chance getting one.  There was already a queue when I got there at 9:20am.  They had max of 12 people at one time, I didn’t get inside until 10am and there was still a queue at 11am despite the city centre being pretty empty (Cardiff). The piano was selling very well too.

    got to wonder...why bother with all that when Lego have been selling them pre-order online? I have the Mario starter set on order, no faff required.

    I wanted it today, I wanted to give the car a run, I wanted to head to shake shack when I’m there and I also wanted to get outside for a bit.

    That is incredibly cool, but I think I will await the sega master system version with Alex Kidd built in.

    That’s how I look at this, something to display, pieces of Art.  Some Lego sets are clearly design for that, they are not toys for children really.  Like the batman Tumbler, it has so many pieces that falls off so much as you look at it wrong.  They are something to be made and display really.

    i thought £200 for this is “cheap”, a rule of thumb is 10p per brick in a set and this has 2600 pieces so it’s about £50 less than I expect.

    After my son had built his two sets and then built them into a single level I took him out for a drive (his favourite pastime). When we got back missus Munckee was looking harassed. 

    She had put the finished sets on a tray to move them and dropped them so they disintegrated.  The Mario sets have no instructions on paper as it’s all by app so she had to rebuild it from the box photo!

    Their prices will go up when they are discontinued, but that’s when that happens, it’s quite a large box to take up in your luggage too!

    I got the lego tumbler a few years ago to put in the cupboard. In hindsight I shouldn't have taken my son with me to buy it, because he was less than amused when I said we weren't ever going to make it.

    Mine sat around gathering dust and got bits taken off here and there so I’ve half broken it into pieces and boxed it up for now...I can’t even find the manual, good thing Lego has an app with all the manuals on it.

    Yeah, a little ridiculous. The piano is even bigger than the NES! 

    Im tempted to get one and build it for the fun then it’s discontinued. I still fancy the ‘89 Batmobile too...

    I got it to see how much it appreciated by. Think I paid £160 and they're going for £310 on ebay at the minute. Though now I see them again I really would like it on display.

    Am I missing something here....? Is it 'just' a LEGO set? As in, you cannot actually use it as a NES?
