A month of deals at Honest Joe’s Used Rovers

US-based builder Frost has certainly been no slouch with one new eye-catching rover after another each day so far.

Do you believe they put a LEGO man on the moon?

With the resurgent interest in the Classic Space theme thanks to The LEGO Movie 2’s new range of retro sets, it only seems fitting that we celebrate these intrepid astronauts’ achievements. Builder Frost’s luminous mosaic is the perfect tribute, capturing the moment the LEGO flag is planted on alien soil.
