WASHINGTON (SBG) — Take a ride back to the past and enjoy the wave of nostalgia.

Lego and Nintendo are celebrating the 80s with a new Lego set that recreates a Nintendo entertainment system from that decade — all made of Lego bricks.

The set consists of more than 2,600 pieces and Super Mario makes an appearance.

Lego retail stores and their website will start selling the nostalgic set in August.

The collection lets you build all of the original parts of the console from the controllers to the retro television, which has a screen that actually scrolls.
