LEGO unveils largest Ideas set yet: 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V [News]

After an early tease of 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V last month, today LEGO has officially taken the wraps off this massive 1:110 scale rocket. First announced last June, the Saturn V will be the largest ever fan-designed LEGO Ideas set with 1,969 pieces, giving even the part count a nod to the year of mankind’s first steps on the moon. The rocket itself stands 39 in. tall (100cm), and consists of all three stages with a full complement of the lunar orbiter, lunar lander, command module with flotation devices, and three astronaut microfigures. The Saturn V will retail for $119.99 USD beginning June 1, the same day as the just-announced 10257 Carousel.

    At a time when I’m divesting myself of most of my brick collection, there’s no way I CAN’T get this. I especially like the award-size microfigs as astronauts, and the orange flotation pontoons around the CM, Oh, and frowny-face LEM is frowny.
