When it came to choosing a LEGO Designer for the set, there was only one person who could do it; Chris McVeigha longtime fan of Atari, who said:

Atari 2600 was one of the most memorable gifts I ever received as a child. I remember spending hours and hours in front of the TV, amazed to be able to try my hand at arcade games in my home. Among the first video games proposed there were also many legendary titles, such as Asteroids, Adventure and Centipede. For this reason, bringing together two icons such as Atari and LEGO for the creation of this fantastic set was an incredible experience. We hope that building this historic console will take you back to those happy days when a handful of pixels meant a world of adventure!
