Remember that gorgeous LEGO set that came out last year, with a deliciously retro TV and NES console playing Super Mario Bros.? Yes, the one that cost over £200. Yes, the one that none of us can actually afford. Well, it seems like a few enterprising companies have taken it upon themselves to clone the set for much cheaper, with… varying levels of success.
As Takashi S. Omoto points out in his tweet, the sets are “charming, if janky”, and one of the sets even comes with extra “cartridges” that “play” different games, ranging from Duck Hunt to the infamous Bowser fight from Super Mario Bros.
Fair warning, though: these ones probably won’t work with the LEGO Super Mario figurine, like the real deal does. Also, Nintendo will probably find you and tell you off. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
