Do you love the Netflix series Stranger Things?

Do you wish you could enjoy it in interlocking brick form?

If so, Netflix and LEGO have good news for you.


LEGO announced a new set based on the adventures of the kids from Hawkins, Indiana. While past LEGO collaborations with well known properties are easy to imagine, such as Batman and Star Wars, you would think Stranger Things would be a weird show to adapt.

However, it seems like people were more than willing to wait outside the LEGO Store to buy the set.





Fans were waiting outside the LEGO Store in Leicester Square for hours. They began lining up Tuesday morning for the release of the set Wednesday night.

The new set wasn't well publicized before the release.

Teaser images posted to the Netflix Instagram gave a clue, but it took until this week for people to be sure this would be a Stranger Things set.

Philip Thorne, a fan who waited more than nine hours, said:

"The joy of Lego is so exciting, my kids are so excited."

Tasha, a fan from London, said:

"I love Lego and I love Stranger Things. This is a merging of two worlds that I love."

All this excited energy can get you pumped!

Who else wants a set?




Slow your roll before you get too excited. The new LEGO set may come with more than 2200 pieces, but it also comes with a hefty price tag.

The set was going for $200 online for LEGO VIPS. That's a lot of money to drop on the plastic bricks.

But it could be argued that what you get for that price is very worth it. The set is one of the more interesting designs LEGO has released in recent years.

The bricks form into a mirrored form of the house of Joyce Meyers. The normal looking house sits on top of the 'upside down' version of the same residence, supported by trees.

The main characters from the show are included, but what else is in there?




You've got well known details such as the light up board that Will uses to communicate with his mother while trapped in the upside down. Sheriff Hopper and his cruiser can try to keep everyone safe, while the kids are chased by the evil Demogorgon.

LEGO VIP members could order the set yesterday, but it will also be available for retail on June 1.

Makes you wonder if it was really worth waiting hours outside the store, if they could have just waited a few weeks.

As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

I needed to tell you all that so you understood it is not an attack on the movie when I say Max sucked.

Board games are designed carefully by teams of experts. Countless brainstorm sessions are carried out, designs and prototypes are proposed and changed, and plenty of focus groups are consulted along the way.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
