It’s so perfect a concept I have a hard time believing it actually exists and will soon be on sale: a Stranger Things LEGO set where The Upside Down is treated just as literally as in the hit Netflix show.

There, it’s a dark, evil, bizarro world that’s literally just beneath the surface of reality, perhaps deep in the roots of a tree or on the other side of that wall. Here, it’s a Lego set that can literally be flipped upside down to expose that evil version of the Byers’ iconic house where many key moments in the show’s first season played out.

The $200, 2,287-piece set is called ‘The Upside Down,” naturally, and like most Lego sets it’s not remotely a 1:1 recreation of the environments from the show, even at minifig scale; like Lego’s takes on The Simpsons’ house or Harry Potter’s famous Hogwarts Castle — but more so — you’ll only find a few very scaled down rooms inside to help you act out some iconic moments.

Some of the details are pretty glorious, though, as is this delightfully retro commercial:

I’ve never seen a Lego set quite like this before. It’ll be on sale June 1st, although Lego VIP members can purchase it starting tomorrow.
