We are so hyped about the LEGO Stranger Things set that we already made two posts in less than a week. The last one even gotten undue attention from LEGO rep who told us to remove the post because it was under embargo. Anyways, the embargo was lifted (at 7PM ET) and therefore, it is safe to talk about it all we want from here on and out. Official words was put out earlier today, making the LEGO 75810 Stranger Things The Upside Down set official.
But, really, there’s nothing you don’t know already at this point. Well, except maybe for the actual availability and the all-important detail: pricing. But now we those details too. The LEGO 75810 Stranger Things The Upside Down will be available starting today for LEGO VIP members and June 1st for everybody else. As for the price, it was lesser than we have previously predicted, going at $199.99. Well, that kind of makes this more worth the money compared to the Tantive IV, doesn’t it? I mean, that’s if you happen to be a fan of both Star Wars and the Netflix series.
Here’s a list of the highlights:
Number of pieces: 2,287
Availability: June 01, 2019
Minifigures: 8 (Eleven, Mike Wheeler, Lucas Sinclair, Dustin Henderson, Will Byers, Joyce Byers, Chief Jim Hopper and the Demogorgon)
Highlights: Two versions of Byers’ house: the real world and the dilapidated The Upside Down, buildable at the same time and flippable between two versions, light-up function in the living room, detailed Will’s bedroom, and Chief’s police truck with removable roof.
2,000+ pieces is a big set and the size pretty says it all. When built, it measures over 12 inches (32 cm) tall, 17 inches (44 cm) wide and 8 inches (21 cm) deep. The set was revealed at The LEGO Store in Flatiron District in NYC a few hours ago (May 14, 2100-2300 hours EDT) and it will be launched in the U.K. through a London Launch happening at The LEGO Store Leicester Square on May 15, at 12 midnight BST. Meanwhile, here’s the official 80s style commercial of the set.
