One of the first games consoles I got to play on as a kid in the 70s was the Atari 2600 – we were lucky enough to have one and I used to love playing on it. I still have an Atari 2600 console in my collection (not the one we had in the 70s though). One of my all time favourite games is Adventure so I was so happy to see that included!
The attention to detail is exactly what you expect from LEGO and they don’t disappoint. This set really is one for the collection if you are fan of retro gaming and cool LEGO sets!
The LEGO Atari 2600 set is available now priced around £209.99. There are 2532 pieces, it’s aimed a builders aged 18 and over and the set number is 10306.
