LEGO Ideas Reveals 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V Set

Yes, she is a big one.

Standing at just over 1m tall (that's a little over 3 feet for us yanks), LEGO Ideas newest entry from their crowd-sourced platform is 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V. Designed by saabfan, the project reached the minimum 10,000 supporters way back in November of 2015 and was revealed as an official set back in June of 2016. Now, a year after that reveal, you'll finally be able to purchase the Apollo Saturn V set starting on June 1, 2017. The set includes 1,969 pieces and will set you back just $119.99 USD. Call me crazy but that seems dirt cheap. The number 1969 is also significant in that it was the year of the first moon landing. I may not be a smart man but I'm thinking that is more than just a coincidence.

Some details that I geeked out over:

- The rocket includes separate display stands so that all three stages of the rocket can be displayed horizontally simultaneously.
- The lunar lander actually fits inside the Apollo spacecraft.
- Three astronaut microfigs are included.

You can read the full press release below after the picture dump.

Is it wrong that I immediately thought of using this to build engine intakes for an enormous LEGO X-wing?

I initially thought I was going to pass on this set. Now that I'm seeing all of the details I'm not so sure. That sucker is big though. The spousal will probably kill me.

TIL, according to this , Airfix Saturn V model parts were used for 1/2 dozen or so Star Wars props and models.

This is firmly in the "shut up and take my money" realm. I'll likely end up buying two, so I have one to put away. Did the same thing with the Space Shuttle set...

Oh wow, that's a good looking. Not perfectly in scale with the shuttle but close enough. I really hope Legoland has these in stock during Star Wars Days.

I just loved it!

It's perfectly done. Sorry but I feel like an old man. It's so Classic LEGO. It has this spirit like in the good old days. It's like the pirates or Robinhood days... I don't know... It made me feel nostalgic.

I'll go back to my second hand shopping and see what I can buy :)
