Growing up in the 80’s, I could not help but be a little envious of some of my friends who had an Atari. You didn’t need to call it anything more than that (until the 400 and 800 computers were released around 1983) To be honest, I don’t remember the ‘2600’ designator even being a thing to concern ourseves aboutin the australian market, until the product was almost at end of its production run. It did take me a little while to come to realise that the 2600 I read about in American Computer Magazines of the era were referring to the same Atari VCS that we had in Australia.
And so we looked forward to weekends, or long, lazy summer holidays, staying with friends, and playing games on the Atari until a little later at night than we should. The Walnut finish on the plastic case would have matched perfectly with the cabinet of our late 70’s colour TV. If only we had one.
2022 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Atari brand, started in 1972 by Nolan Bushnell, and the release of the coin operated game Pong, or as we thought of it ‘TV-Tennis’. It was the Atari Video Computer System (as it was called on its release, rebranded as the 2600 in 1983).
Today, The LEGO Group announce the near imminent arrival of 10306 Atari 2600. Going alonside the Nintendo Entertainment system, released in 2020, this set is full of nostaligc hits for kids of the 80s.
We have just seen two new LEGO Star Wars sets unveiled at LEGO® CON, the LEGO Group’s live streamed product showcase. Both Hark from the era of the Clone Wars – The Cad Bane’s ship, The Justifier from the Bad Batch, and the AT-TE (All-Terrain Tactical Enforcer) as seen with the 212th Clone Troopers at the Battle of Utapu, during Revenge of the Sith.

We saw most of the next wave of LEGO Super Mario sets revealed a few months ago, but there was no mention of any buildable figures. Today, at LEGO® CON, the live-streamed product showcase, the LEGO Group and Nintendo finally unveiled these latest figures
Arriving in August, you will be able to collect these new characters. I suspect the team have responded well to the feedback: there are only 8 figures in the set. Hopefully 2 full sets in a box, rather than sets of 10, and 18 figures in the box, as we have seen with the last 2 series.
Fresh from LEGO® CON, the LEGO Groups Live streamed product showcase, MINECRAFT Game director Agnes Larsson and LEGO Designer Fred joined the stream to help reveal two new LEGO Minecraft sets: 21189 the Skeleton Dungeon and 21190 The Abandoned Village.
At the peak of the BrickHeadz craze back in 2018, the set Go Brick Me was one of the most popular sets of the range – giving builders the chance to create avatars of themselves in BrickHeadz Form. Further customisable figures arrived in the form of Brick and Groom figures in 2020. After a quiet year or two, we have seen an increased number of BrickHeadz released in 2022, and the line continues to innovate:
Today, at LEGO®CON 2022, the LEGO Group’s live-streamed product showcase, we have been given our first look at the 40542 LEGO Brickheadz FC Barcelona Go Brick Me, giving fans of FC Barcelona to create themselves in team livery, or their favourite team member, as a BrickHeadz figure.
Aimed at an audience aged 10 and up, this set has 530 pieces and will launch on August 1st. It has an RRP of 19.99 EUR/19.99 USD/17.99 GBP/29.99 AUD/24.99 CAD.
