Powerpig's Builds 'n Things - Lego sets of classic bygone technology

How does the idea of a Lego kit for a rotary phone, a Nintendo NES, an old computer, a Polaroid camera or a vintage TV grab you? If it does, you need to get yourself to Powerpig's Builds 'n Things to secure yourself one. Or more.

The Nintendo NES (aka My First Game Console) is the latest addition to the range, but as you can see below, there are plenty more examples - and even more if you check the retail site.

All come with the parts you need to create the images you see, with instructions available for each design from maker Chris McVeigh's website. Some little features too - like the option to flip open the door and insert / remove cartridges on the Nintendo!

As for prices, you are looking at $58.50 plus shipping for the Nintendo, with the TV at $39.50, the computer at $68.50 and the Polaroid camera at $37.50. No doubt fun to make, but also great to display once you've finished the building work.
