Looks like Oxford Blocks (a lego clone) have got two sets out:

Large Set


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252585374806

Small Set


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122062387343

They appear to be quite difficult to get hold of in the uk

But you may also want to take a look on AliExpress... search for 15029

I have just ordered one from AliExpress... fingers crossed that a) it turns up and b) it's decent quality.

It's a shame we cant get a copy of the instructions, as we could then order official lego parts and build them up easy (though some parts look unique).

They look quite cool actually and wish Lego did something similar. I find the big set to be quite expensive IMO but it looks like it lights up too.

Not sure if you guys are aware but LEGO Dimensions produced this which is rather awesome. You get a Licensed Williams Defender machine a Spy Hunter Car and Arcade Kid. I bagged one a while ago Smile

Like the look of that Oxford Game Room. They might be calling it a 90s arcade, but it's got plenty of 80s goodness in there too - Outrun, Bubble Bobble, Wonderboy! Just to shore up the 80s quotient a bit, you should get one of these and park it outside...



The price on AliExpress is a lot more resonable btw, provided you don't get stung by custom. Post an update on the quality if/when you get it!
