10231 Shuttle Expedition, New and Improved

10213 MAIN

Did you miss out on acquiring a 10213 Shuttle Adventure set before it sold out? Well, fret none as it’s replacement, 10231 Shuttle Expedition, improves upon the original in many ways:

Since its release in 2010, 10213 Shuttle Adventure has proven to be very popular! Although the model was designed for a 16+ target audience, our consumer call center has brought to our intention that many younger children have been building and playing with the model. As a result, the Direct team has decided to look at the model once more to see what changes could be made in order to provide a better build and play experience for a slightly younger target audience.

10231 Shuttle Expedition may look similar to Shuttle Adventure in many ways, however its build is very different and offers several advantages.

– The fuel tank has been reinforced with supports to strengthen the assembly
– The landing gear is strengthened to function better across many different floor types
– The Cargo doors can now be more rigorously opened and closed
– The entire build has been reworked to limit opportunities for misplacing elements
– Astronauts now have wigs in addition to their helmets (1 male, 1 female). Face prints are also different.
– The new set now has 1,230 elements
– New Satellite can be securely positioned on the new mechanical arm

10231 Shuttle Expedition has already gone on sale in LEGOLAND Billund and will soon be available across all LEGO brand retail stores and on LEGO.com.

Kind regards

10213 Shuttle Adventure Almost Sold Out

Update: According to this forum thread, it seems that the set is indeed discontinued but will be re-released under a different number (10231 vs. 10213) with changes to improve stability. For those with the old set, you can call Shop@Home Customer Service and request a service pack for the stability upgrade.

Shop@Home status for 10213 Shuttle Adventure changed recently to “Sold Out” which typically means that the set is no longer in production and the supply chain is drying up. But, have no fear, Amazon is here. If you’ve been procrastinating on picking up quite possibly the best shuttle set ever made, now is the time to strike.

Thanks to pacific493 for the heads up.

10213 Shuttle Adventure Now Available

Looks like LEGO’s supply chain had an early delivery as I just got word that 10213 Shuttle Adventureicon is now available through LEGO Shop@Home. A hunnerd bucks for possibly the best Space Shuttle model without actually calling the set a Space Shuttle for fear of being sued by NASA and 1,204 pieces sounds pretty sweet. My astronaut minifigs will finally have a vessel worthy to call home. Now I just need to buy one. Image gallery below:
