THROWBACK THURSDAY: Chris McVeigh’s Retro Technology Lego Kits Will Have You Weeping For Yesteryear

Nostalgia is a powerful thing and one that can bring you to your knees if you aren’t careful. For me, whenever I see my Atari 2600 game console, I am immediately propelled backward in time some 30 years where I witness the younger me entranced by game graphics that would make you weep if you saw them today, and who, upon completing her fifth hour of Cosmic Ark, will have become a real “Gamer”.

Artist Cris McVeigh understands the particular draw of nostalgia and has thus created an amazing selection of Lego kits featuring retro technology that will not only have you weeping from the bombardment of memories entering your noggin at lightening speed, they will leave you panting to own them all.

And luckily you can (because McVeigh also understands that nostalgia can be packaged and sold as well).

From the aforementioned Atari 2600:

And the Nintendo NES:

To the the Polaroid camera:

And My First Computer

You can own all your favorite retro tech memories for a really decent price (seriously, these cost between $37.50 to $68.50).

Of course, if you happen to be the kind of person who wants to build their own memories, McVeigh also has building guides for the DIY-er.

So what are you waiting for? Memories don’t construct themselves.
