With all these new LEGO sets coming out, like Scooby Doo LEGO and Doctor Who LEGO, I’ve got total LEGO envy. Why should the kids get all the cool stuff? Well, this new My Old Basement LEGO kit is all mine.
Designed by artist Chris McVeigh (a.k.a. Power Pig) who we’ve featured lots of times on our site, this special kit features 358 parts that, when assembled, transform into a vintage gaming set-up, complete with a 70’s-era pre cable television, an original Atari gaming system, even a Coke can.
Though I was more of a Tab girl myself. Don’t hate.
The attention to detail is pretty amazing, with sloped television screen blocks, rare micro and nanofigs, even colors you don’t often see in LEGO sets, because how else would you get that fabulous puke colored area rug? Plus, you now have support for your When I was a kid... stories, when the kids complain about slow WiFi connectivity and dead smartphone batteries.
The new My Old Basement LEGO kit is available for pre-order and ships 3/9. Also, awesome Father’s Day gift idea.
