Oops! Accidental spaceship!

If you know the struggles of ADHD, you’re familiar with the double-edged sword of hyperfocus. Builder Kale Frost was probably supposed to review the line of new LEGO City Space sets that he was sent but he clearly got distracted. There are a ton of new and rare parts that come with this line, as well as recolors and prints which lend themselves well to the space theme. After tossing out the instructions, Kale dove into the plethora of new pieces and came up with this impressively large cargo freighter.

LEGO City Space 60348 Lunar Roving Vehicle & 60350 Lunar Research Base [Review]

When I was a kid, the LEGO City line was one of my favorites (though it was called Town back then). But these days, between Star Wars and Ideas and massive Creator Expert sets and all the other cool themes I enjoy, I don’t often get the opportunity to build City sets. So I was excited when LEGO reached out to us about reviewing the latest wave of LEGO City sets, which focus on space exploration. Real-world space has long been one of the recurring City themes, along with firefighters and police and construction, with the first space shuttle set launching in 1990. This latest wave is inspired by NASA’s Artemis project, the planned mission to return to the moon by 2025 (the first Artemis I unmanned mission is planned for this spring). Today we’re looking at two sets in the middle of the range, 60348 Lunar Roving Vehicle with 275 pieces (US $39.99 | CAN $49.99 | UK £24.99), and 60350 Lunar Research Base with 786 pieces (US $119.99 | CAN $149.99 | UK £89.99). Both sets will be available March 1.

The LEGO Group provided The Brothers Brick with early copies of these sets for review. Providing TBB with products for review guarantees neither coverage nor positive reviews.
