As the LEGO social media team builds hype for the arrival of LEGO Stranger Things, a fun 1980s style advert has been released on social platforms. The commercial features a blocky police car, dubbed ‘the Police Cruiser’, that looks like a vehicle straight out of the 1980s product line.
Even the production quality and presentation of the video is designed to evoke the 1980s, with grainy quality and black and white static opening and closing the clip.
The Netflix series Stranger Things is of course set in the 1980s, with the nostalgic tones perceived to be a key part of what made the Steven Spielberg/Steven King mash-up so popular.
A LEGO Stranger Things set was first rumoured here at Brick Fanatics back in March, before special openings were announced for London and New York LEGO Stores on May 14 and 15. On May 1, it was confirmed that such a set or theme would be launching soon, assuring fans of the show that they would soon have something to build while streaming Season 3.
Stranger Things Season 3 will arrive on Netflix on July 4, 2019.
