The world gets turned Upside Down in a brand new "Stranger Things" set from LEGO

There are some days when I wonder if the idea of a television phenomenon has passed us. With so much content out there, it’s hard for anything to make a mark, and even those that do can burn brightly before being lost in the ether.

Stranger Things, I feel confident in saying, is definitely a phenomenon. Since debuting a few years back on Netflix, the series has only grown in popularity, inspiring toys, comics, games, and so much more. Not bad for a love letter to the 1980s… and waffles.

Today, the LEGO Group have announced a brand new set based on the popular show, with tons of minifigs of your favorite characters and some crazy cool features as well. You’ve got Eleven and her precious waffle, an adorably terrifying little Demogorgon, Mike, Dustin, and Lucas, Chief Hooper and his truck, and the Byers’ home (with light up “alphabet wall”), all built on top of the Upside Down. It’s an amazingly detailed set, so be sure to order yours after checking out the full details below.
