• Craving a Trip To the Moon? Take the Edge Off with Lego’s Massive NASA Apollo Saturn V Rocket

It’s a meter long and is composed of 1,969 pieces!!!

We’ve covered a lot of Lego kits in the past – kits like the 1968 Fiat 500, the Ford GT duo, the Caterham Super Seven, and my personal favorite, the Batmobile from the Dark Night trilogy. But, Lego just took things to an all-new level with the introduction of the kit you see here – a 1,969-piece, Apollo Saturn V rocket that stands a staggering three feet tall and comes complete with horizontal stand, three new astronaut figures, a lunar lander, and a command service module. The rocket itself separates into three different stages. You’ll also get a book that includes information about the manned Apollo missions and the fan designers that proposed the original idea through the Lego Ideas website.

So, to put things into perspective, this is a 1:100 scale model, and is the tallest Lego Ideas set ever approved for production. It goes on sale on June 1, 2017, and will set you back just $109.99 – that’s actually a good deal, considering it contains a total of 1,969 pieces. And, in case you didn’t catch it, 1969 is also the year that Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong took their historic trip to the moon, making them the first people to ever travel to and land on another celestial body. And now, almost 50 years later, we can honor their historic trip and the rocket that got them there, with a massive Lego kit. Now, that’s pretty damn cool.

This is a really awesome kit to see, and while I don’t typically have time to put together Lego kits anymore, I think I’ll definitely have to spring for this one. It also comes on the eve of another NASA set known as the “Women of NASA” that also began life as a user-submitted idea via Lego Ideas and is set to go on sale sometime in late 2017 or early 2018. What do you think about the Saturn V rocket set? It seems like a good price and lots of pieces to me. Is it something you’ll go out to get and prominently display in your home?
