5 4 3 2 1 Blastoff – By R. Stephan on May 25, 2014
I grew up with Lego. I love the space program. This is a match made in heaven. My only regret is not buying it when I saw it in the Lego store for $100. I paid twice that for waiting. But I still got all the enjoyment.in putting it together.
Nothing but enjoyment – By Daniel on April 11, 2014
This put me in a time machine and brought me back to my childhood. Recommend for all ages. Well worth the money.
Very cool and big set – By Dave A. on February 28, 2014
I still have this space shuttle on my fireplace mantle. It’s a big and relatively heavy set but wasn’t all that complicated to build. There’s a lot of repetition as the rocket boosters are exactly the same as are the shuttle’s bay doors. It’s also cool that the bay doors open to reveal some sort of arm. I wish lego would put out more big/semi-realistic sets such as these.
