LEGO Rebuilds the Upside Down With New ‘Stranger Things’ Set

With season three hitting Netflix in two months time, the Stranger Things hype is on full blast, with a new video game, Polaroid camera, and an H&M collection. Now, LEGO is joining the roster with its very own rendition of the Upside Down.

Designed and developed alongside Netflix, the new 2,287-piece LEGO set features the Byers’ house from season one, complete with all the Christmas lights and painted alphabet on the walls. Unique to this model is the ability to flip the entire set upside down, revealing the actual Upside Down from the show: a mirrored Byers’ house in blue and grey, housing the Demogorgon and a terrified Will. The Stranger Things LEGO set comes with eight mini-figures featuring all the main characters, including Eleven, Mike, Lucas, Dustin, Will, Joyce Byers, Chief Jim Hopper, and the Demogorgon. It also comes with the Chief’s truck.

The LEGO Stranger Things: The Upside Down set will be available at LEGO retailers June 1, or May 15 if you’re a LEGO VIP member. As for the new season, Netflix will be dropping Season 3 of the thriller on July 4.

Elsewhere in collectibles, Hot Toys has dropped a life-sized Iron Man Nano Gauntlet.
