Stranger Things is returning soon, which means brands are rolling out things to throw your money at.

The set of course includes mini-figurines from the series, including characters Eleven, Mike Wheeler, Lucas Sinclair, Dustin Henderson, Will Byers, Joyce Byers, Chief Jim Hopper, and even a cute little Lego Demogorgon.

Even if your familiarity with the kids of Hawkins, Indiana is passing at best, Lego's crack at beloved Netflix series Stranger Things is one of the most fascinating sets we've seen from the company in a long, long time - and there's nothing odd about that.

This experience won't be affordable considering the number of pieces in this set.

It's a truly remarkable set, not just for the sheer amount of reverence to the source material it packs in for Stranger Things fans to gawk over, but from a design perspective too, something that is both eminently playable yet also makes for an incredible display piece. "We are in the process of evaluating other options for bringing the Stranger Things universe to life in an interactive medium".

The Upside Down version of the house mirrors the same rooms but with a dilapidated, vine-covered look.

On the real-world side of the Lego toy, the Byers' house features a front porch with furniture, living room, dining room and Will's bedroom.

The living room features authentic details from the series, like the alphabet wall with a light-up function, couch, coffee table, telephone, axe, 'have you seen me?' flyer stickered element and a bear trap to catch the Demogorgon. There are small Easter eggs to be discovered throughout the house including a "Will the Wise drawing' and a picture of the iconic Mind Flayer hidden in the attic".

It looks like Netflix is making a committed step into the gaming market. The set also comes with Hopper's police jeep as well.

You've got the entire minifig-urized cast - from Eleven (indeed, she's holding an Eggo waffle) and Mike and the gang, plus Joyce and Sheriff Hopper.

Those ambitions seem to extend beyond a single game set in the Stranger Things universe, though. "Measures over 12" (32cm) tall, 17" (44cm) wide and 8" (21cm) deep.
