The Lego set goes on sale June 1, 2019, a month ahead of the "Stranger Things" season 3 debut on July 4. Check out the Stranger Things LEGO set below. The product comprises 2,287 individual pieces, including eight Lego Minifigures of the show's principal characters: Eleven (complete with an Eggo/Lego waffle), Mike Wheeler, Lucas Sinclair, Dustin Henderson, Will Byers, Joyce Byers, Chief Jim Hopper - and the Demogorgon. Players can literally flip the set upside down to switch between the two dimensions; each includes iconic details, including the Christmas lights communication board on the wall.

Today, Netflix original Stranger Things has been added to the LEGO game in a massive way.

You can build both the Byers house and the supernatural world of the Upside Down in brick form. With 8 Stranger Things figures, each with its own accessories, this playset makes a great gift for Stranger Things fans who will love to build and display this model to show their passion for the series.

According to him, the attack "did not lead to any casualties or an oil spill but damaged the structures of the two vessels.". As tensions between the U.S. and Iran have increased, Tehran has threatened to close the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

The clever concept has enough pieces to recreate Will Byers' bedroom, living room and dining room - and a vine-covered, dilapidated version of the home representing it in the Upside Down space where the TV series' demons live. These rooms are present on the top half of the set in proper colors and capped on each end by a couple of trees; the set also includes the police SUV.

Will Byers' bedroom is even faithfully replicated, where you'll spot his boombox, bed, desk, desk lamp, drawings and movie posters all in place.

Unfortunately for those impulse purchasers among you, it's not exactly cheap: The highly detailed set comes in at an eye-watering AUD$349.99, making it more of a special occasion purchase rather than something you pick while staggering around a 24-hour K-Mart blind pissed on a Sunday morning.
