1 meter high. ONE METER! That’s the heady heights that the Lego Ideas Apollo Saturn V is going to reach when it’s released on June 1st. With a history referencing 1969 pieces, and a UK price of £109.99 and a USA price of $119.99, this is the largest Lego Ideas set so far and I want it, want it, want it!
I’m a sucker for all things NASA, so it’s great to see that they’ve actually done the gigantic size of the real Saturn V justice with a significantly sized set. I was concerned that what we’d actually get was a tiny little desk model, but I’m pleased to see how wrong I was.
Now if they’d just do a super detailed Shuttle again, that’d be great.
The set is officially described as…
Make history with the LEGO® NASA Apollo Saturn V, the first rocket to put people on the Moon! Build the 3 stages of this stunning meter-high rocket and display it on the stand or launch into orbit. Offload the S-IC and S-II sections, dock the lunar lander with the command service module, and complete a successful Moon landing mission!
The set also includes 3 stands to display the model horizontally, 3 new-for-June-2017 astronaut microfigures for role-play recreations of the Moon landings, plus a booklet about the manned Apollo missions and the fan designers of this educational and inspirational LEGO Ideas set.
