    I really like the old television since I like old fashioned things, but what is the point of this? It feels like a lot of Star Wars sets in that people will only buy it because its got a famous license (Nintendo in this case)

    And for $350, Im sure most fans (both Lego and non-Lego fans) would rather invest in actual Nintendo games…

    Never had a NES – maybe if they’d done a Commodore 64 I’d be in.

    Seems a strange product to me, as the target market seems to be middle-aged people who have nostalgic feelings for an ancient video game console. Seems a bit niche to me.

    My initial reaction was the same as others already mentioned, why drop $350 into a lego replica of a computer console that just sits there. But looking at the pictures and video, that the crank on the tv scrolls the screen and Mario jumps on the screen according to the level terrain! That is totally awesome! The inspiration, determination and actual design that went into that is to be highly commended! And from the pictures/video, it looks like a very finished product.

    So not saying I’d buy it, but I can see its got more appeal than just a pretty nostalgic display item. I think it has way more ‘play features’ than a star wars UCS model for instance. I’m guessing LEGO have done their market research and this one should make them a tidy profit. This gives non-AFOL and non-star wars adults and way into LEGO.

    So this set is not for me, but I can see its value.
