Fans of the Stranger Things Netflix series, it’s your time to jump for joy. LEGO has announced the introduction of a new set dubbed "The Upside Down" which marks the first collaboration between the Danish plastic brick maker and streaming service Netflix. Stay close as we have all the juicy details about this new set.
Stranger Things Lego Set
The set will allow Stranger Things die-hards to explore in detail the frightening supernatural world of Upside Down as well as the Byers’ house. VIP LEGO customers can order the set as of May 15, while the official market launch is scheduled for June 1. The set (number 75810) will be available for a retail price of $199.99.
Given that Stranger Things Season 3 is scheduled to drop on July 4, we can't imagine how this LEGO set is not a marketing stunt.
Nonetheless, it’s a neatly executed one but also a tad pricey if you ask us.
Now that we’ve got the technicalities out of the way, it’s time to see what the set comprises, especially since the level of detail LEGO put into this falls on the high side.
LEGO Stranger Things: The Upside Down contents
First and foremost, LEGO says its Stranger Things-inspired set can be flipped, allowing for a swift swap between the Byers’ house in Hawkins, Indiana, and the Upside Down world. Which we think is a cool feature. But as we said before, a lot of effort went into making this set as detailed as possible.
The set is made of 2,287 pieces wrapped up in 11 bags.
Through them, LEGO managed to replicate the alphabet wall, Chief Hopper’s police cruiser and the phone found in the Byers’ living room. Will’s room includes a buildable bed as well as the posters decorating the room. Other items that were given a LEGO interpretations are the boombox, desk, and desk lamp.
Special attention was also directed to the inclusion of Easter Eggs - such as Hopper’s coffee cup, Eleven’s waffle, and Mike’s flashlight. The Upside Down even features the creepy vines and the dark theme proposed by the Netflix series.
Character-wise, there are eight LEGO figurines for each of the following: Eleven, Mike Wheeler, Lucas Sinclair, Dustin Henderson, Will Byers, Joyce Byers, Chief Jim Hooper, and the Demogorgon.
