LEGO Sets To Build Beyond The Games

Once the realms of nerdy folks, gaming has really hit the mainstream and the perfect example of this are current hits such as The Last of Us TV series, the Mario Brothers lighting up the big screen and Jack Black’s Peach-inspired Bowser song charting in the Billboard 100. Gaming has also started to be a great source of inspiration for the LEGO Group. With the recent announcement of a brand new Sonic the Hedgehog theme, these upcoming sets will join those already available. The sets featured below are perfect for expressing your love of gaming beyond the games.
