All The Rumoured Information on LEGO Icons 10306 Atari 2600 Console | August 2022


The LEGO Icons theme has expanded drastically in recent years from Modular buildings to brick-built flowers and now they'll be a brick-built console. In particular, it'll be a LEGO version of the Atari 2600 console that celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year which has already been rumoured for a while. But thanks to promobricks.de, we have further information about the retro console that will be available from 1st August 2022.


Just like the original Atari, the LEGO model will be similar in size and will be mainly black with light brown panels to round off the look. The classic side controls will also be included along with a slot for the game cartridges at the top of the console. The top of the console can also be opened up to reveal a small vignette of a typical 80s kids' bedroom.


In the bedroom, a Minifigure sits on the floor with a joystick in his hand whilst playing Asteroids on a TV. There is a small-built mini Atari in front of the TV with various posters hanging on the room wall around it. A ghetto blaster, an old-fashioned telephone and a white cat also being inside the small vignette.

Furthermore, Atari 2600 console also comes with three game cartridges of the games Asteroids, Adventure and Centipede. Each one can be converted into mini 8x8 vignettes to match their game themes. Centipede is a build of an insect with a mushrooms background, Asteroids is of course a small spaceship that fights against asteroids and UFOs and Adventure is a yellow castle build.


Altogether this makes for a pretty big set even if it's not the most colourful and play feature-friendly LEGO model ever. And because of the sheer amount of stuff included, 10306 will retail for $239.99 with a total of 2532 pieces once it releases on 1st August 2022 exclusively at LEGO stores and online.
