Before diving into the building process of 71374 LEGO® Nintendo Entertainment System in our next post, let's first take a look at its parts – starting with the new moulds that have been introduced for the set.
New moulds in LEGO set 71374
Tile Special 2 x 4 with Pixelated Mario Print (6326919 | 73210)
The most obvious new element in the set is the Tile Special 2 x 4 with Pixelated Mario Print, on a Sand Yellow/ Dark Tan base. It's a very specialised element and, unsurprisingly, it's only available with an Pixelated Mario print. The back of the tile features an anti-stud tube for attaching it to other parts.
Plate 1 x 4 with 2 Bottom Pins (6317182 | 68382)
Although not strictly a POOP (Part Out of Other Parts) due to the presence of hollow studs, it could be approximated using a 1x4 Plate (3710) and two Technic Pins with Knob (4274). This new mould offers a considerable advantage over this assembly when it comes to the strength of the pins relative to the plate.
With an ample 30 copies of this element included in 71374, there are plenty for builders to play around with.
Here are some explorations using the new element.
Tile 2x6 (69729)
Recolours in the LEGO NESNew moulds aren't the only thing that 71374 offers builders. A number of parts in new colours also appear in this kit.

In addition to the elements above, Plate Special 2 x 4 with Groove and Two Center Studs (Jumper) in Dark Bluish Gray (6307616 | 65509) appears here for the first time, with two copies of this element included in the set. Two copies of Tile Round 1 x 1 in Spring Yellowish Green/ Yellowish Green (6284598 | 98138) are also present; the first time this element has appeared without decoration.
Rare RecoloursWhile it may not bring many exclusive recolours to the table, 71374 does contain numerous hard-to-find elements.
