LEGO Creator Expert 10306 Atari 2600 Console Rumoured For Summer 2022


The LEGO Creator Expert 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. The retro console will be available from 1st August 2022 as an 18+ set especially aimed at those kids from the 80s.


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 well-known game Pitfall will have its own LEGO cartridge with the set allowing the mechanically connected controllers to actually play a classic 80s game by opening up the console.

Pitfall will be the only game shown with the Atari 2600 but really brings an iconic scene from the game to life smartly packaged into the console itself. The hero Pitfall Harry hangs on a liana in a jungle scene and swings over a pit with crocodiles. This movement can be made even more realistic by a LEGO version of the CX40 joystick also included in the set.


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, Promobricks.de believe that 10306 will retail for $199.99 with no confirmed piece count
