Imagine a version with Kirby's Adventure.

The Nintendo and LEGO partnership is getting even bigger.

A LEGO set featuring a replica NES and a small CRT TV will be available on August 1 for US$229.99. The set will create a brick version of a level of the original Super Mario Bros., with a crank included on the TV to advance the scene.

The LEGO Super Mario figures can also interact with the setup in some fashion.

Price corrected after LEGO.com site updates.

I really like this. I will probably buy it

The first Lego-Nintendo sets seemed to not understand the appeal of Lego itself, being more of a playset than a building toy, and seemed aimed solely at children (which isn't a problem; I'm just not interested).  This is the opposite, a model style set aimed at adults.  And it's great!  I imagine it will be hard to find these and the demand will be pretty high.

The price might be out of my budget... but I really like it, and would love to get a set.
Great attention to detail, and the scrolling level with jumping 8-bit Mario figure is icing on the cake.
