Display and role-play with this majestic meter-high LEGO® brick model of the NASA Apollo Saturn V. Packed with authentic details, it features 3 removable rocket stages, including the S-IVB third stage with the lunar lander and lunar orbiter. 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.
Truly a Masterpiece
This set is an absolute gem!
It honestly doesn't even look like a LEGO set once built but rather an actual scale model.
It's a challenging but fun build. Took me a lot longer than it would normally take someone to complete because I was filming a stop motion build. Still, it is a great value set in terms of price per brick, time to build and size of set.
If you haven't seen it already, but this this is massive! It looks stunning when displayed both vertically, horizontally or separated.
To top it all off, the piece count even matches the year of the launch!
Well done, LEGO!LEGOLapse
50th Anniversary build
Bought to commemorate the Apollo 11 moon landing 50th Anniversary. Loved building the Saturn V from start to finish. The scale is awesome and compliments my other Lego builds displayed in the build room. I purposely didn't rush this and spread it over a couple of weeks, I looked forward to getting home from work every night and popping a few pieces together. I hope Lego will consider some more NASA esque builds in the future.Wakey
It's over earth! I have the high ground!
Where do I begin? This set is by far my favorite Lego set to date. The Saturn V towers way above every set I own at 39 3/8" (1 Meter) tall. While building you must make sure to press the outside panels on very well, sometimes until you hear a load 'click'. The rocket is very sturdy and won't come apart on you while carrying it. This is the biggest set I own to date in both size and piece count (by 500 pieces), but I built is faster than other sets of the same price range because of the close symmetry around the rocket.
I only have three complaints though: 1) the instructions were hard to follow when clipping the grill pieces onto to lower stage of the rocket, 2) the cone going up to the third stage is not a checkered pattern as on the real Saturn V, 3) when pulling apart the first and second stage, the third stage and command module usually go flying off the rocket because of how strong the connectors are holding the first and second stage together.
Overall this set is amazing... props to the creators and to Lego for making the Ideas theme. This theme brings the Lego loving community closer and encourages people to build even more. After building this set and while lying in bed I thought an idea for a Lego Ideas set and of part of the design. I hope this theme never disappears so I will be able to buy the bricks, build, and submit my idea.StormTrooperMissin
