by Lambert Varias

The latest custom LEGO set from professional builder Chris “Powerpig” McVeigh is for 80s kids. It has an Atari 2600, a TV, a few toys and trinkets and most of all a drab orange and brown rug. You can practically feel the fibers under your feet, eternally damp from sweat and spilled drinks.

Man I forgot TV screens used to bulge like that. You can pre-order the My Old Basement set for $90 (USD). If you already have one of Chris’ My First TV ’80s sets, you can save by getting just the diorama’s base. Chris says the toys and household objects included in the set may vary depending on supply. As always Chris will also upload the set’s building guide on his website.
