The picture tube television of the new Lego set has a sliding screen, so that a Mario level can scroll by. That works with a lever on the side and when players place the Mario figure of the previously announced Lego Super Mario sets on top of the TV, it responds with sounds to what is on the screen.

According to the sources, photos of the Lego NES already leaked; the set is now officially announced. According to Lego, the buildable TV is about 22.5cm high, 23.5cm wide and 16cm deep. The set also includes an NES console, controller and game cartridge. The Nintendo Entertainment System set will be released in early August simultaneously with the previously announced Lego Super Mario sets.
