Stranger Things’ amazing Lego set takes the Upside Down literally

It's so perfect a concept I have a hard time believing it actually exists and will soon be on sale: a Stranger Things LEGO set where the upside down is treated as literally in the hit Netflix show

There, it's a dark, evil, bizarro world that's literally just beneath the surface of reality, perhaps deep in the roots of a tree or on the other side of that wall. Here, it's a Lego set that can literally be flipped upside down to expose the evil version of the Byers' iconic house where many key moments played in the first season played out.

The $ 200, 2,287-piece set is called 'The Upside Down,' naturally, and like most Lego sets it's not remotely a 1: 1 recreation of the environments the show, even at minifig scale; like Lego's takes on The Simpsons' house or Harry Potter's famous Hogwarts Castle – but more so – you'll only find a few very scaled down rooms inside to help you act out some iconic moments.

Some of the details are pretty glorious, though, as this is delightfully retro commercial:

I've never seen a Lego set quite like this before. It will be on sale June 1st, although Lego VIP members can purchase it starting today.
