As for the Lego set, this authentic replica of the Atari 2600 is built with a staggering 2,532 pieces. Not only will you be building the console itself, but you’ll also get to piece together three Atari cartridges (Asteroids, Adventure, and Centipede), a cartridge holder, controller, and three mini-builds inspired by those iconic games.
Once the build is complete, you’ll have a console that’s 13 inches wide, 3 inches tall, and 8.5 inches wide for a faithful, nearly 1:1 replica of the original Atari 2600. All told, you’ll likely be spending upwards of 10 hours putting together this project. Because of its complexity, this Lego set is intended for gaming fans aged 18 and older. However, it’d be a cool kit to build with your kids to introduce them to one of the most iconic gaming consoles of all time.
