Stranger Things recently dropped its latest trailer for its forthcoming third season on March 20. The set contains eight figures, all of which have their own accessories: Eleven, Mike Wheeler, Lucas Sinclair, Dustin Henderson, Will Byers, Joyce Byers, Chief Jim Hopper, and the Demogorgon.

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

In a no-brainer toy tie-in, Netflix and Lego are introducing a "Stranger Things" playset: a recreation of the Byers' house that flips over to reveal the dim underworld of the Upside Down.

Not only does the new and very large set set feature a replica of the Byers' house - complete with light-up alphabet wall - but it also features a sinister mirrored Upside Down version of it, lurking menacingly below ground level. The set will be available for LEGO VIP members starting tomorrow and for everyone else on June 1st.

Manchester City are technically brilliant and mentally formidable
It wasn't enough for the Reds to pip Manchester City to the title, despite finishing the campaign with a whopping 97 points. It was no surprise to see Mane (8.4) come out on top in the averages, following another star showing from the Senegalese.

The clever concept has enough pieces to recreate Will Byers' bedroom, living room and dining room - and a vine-covered, dilapidated version of the home representing it in the Upside Down space where the TV series' demons live.

In Will's bedroom, the model includes details like his boom box, bed, desk, desk lamp, drawings and movie posters. 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". The police truck has a removable roof for accessing the interior, as well.

Accessory elements include Lucas" slingshot and flashlight, Dustin's walkie-talkie and compass, Mike's flashlight and walkie-talkie, Hopper's coffee mug, Joyce's flashlight and drawing of "Will the Wise', and Eleven's waffle. "Measures over 12" (32cm) tall, 17" (44cm) wide and 8" (21cm) deep.
