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.

Food is a totally subjective thing. What has one person drooling might leave another dry-heaving just thinking about.

Having said that, some stuff is just plain ... wrong.

Secrets, we all have them. Some will be spilled over time and some will go to the grave.

Mine are going to the grave. Just in case you were waiting for a truth sharing moment, there it is.

Others often feel the need to shed their secrets. Secrets can weigh on you.

So every once in awhile people start letting loose, because it's the only way to free yourself.

That's why you get a therapist, to share the most shocking, intimate details of your life. To spill and be free.

Or... naturally, you come to Reddit.

"What have you never told anyone?"

Sometimes it's time to stop the world for a few minutes, relax, and unwind. Slip into a warm bath or have a nice glass of wine on the side to really drive that comfort and relaxation home.

We work ourselves to death most days without any acknowledgment for the absolute limit to which we are pushing our bodies. With the world constantly swirling around us as this happens, it can feel a little like there is no respite.

That's why we need to learn things that really comfort us. About the world, about other people, whatever. We need some comfort to take so that we can bring some stillness into our crazy world.

Everyone has an opinion and apparently that opinion is golden advice. (Two different things)

You can give opinions, but know what you're saying and sharing.

Advice is more... heavy. It's definitive.

So beware and take "advice" with a grain of salt.

Redditor PsychedelicAirFusion wanted to hear about the times other people should've just stayed quiet with their opinions, by asking:

"What's the worst advice you have received?"
