We reviewed 21312 Women of NASA last week, and the set is now available from the LEGO Shop starting right now (midnight Eastern time, November 1st).

The set retails for $24.99 and includes 4 minifigures with 231 pieces. We hope that LEGO makes sufficient quantities for everyone to have this lovely little set, but based on the frustratingly limited availability of highly anticipated sets like 21110 Research Institute, 21309 Apollo Saturn V, and 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon, we’re forced to expect limited availability ahead of the holiday season.

LEGO Ideas 21312 Women of Nasa [Review]

LEGO recently unveiled its latest LEGO Ideas set, 21312 Women of Nasa. The set includes four minifigures depicting women astronauts, scientists, and engineers from throughout the US space program’s history. LEGO sent The Brothers Brick an early review copy of the set, which is due out on November 1st.

While the minifigures are certainly the heroes of the set, the set also includes three mini-builds, with 231 pieces. When released, the set will retail for $24.99. Given the science-oriented, minifig-centric nature of both LEGO Ideas sets, comparisons to 21110 Research Institute will be inevitable among LEGO fans, and we’ll do our best to compare and contrast them along the way.

Ship In A Bottle: The Flagship Leviathan and Voltron – Defender of the Universe are the two next LEGO Ideas sets [News]

LEGO has announced today that Ship In A Bottle: The Flagship Leviathan by Jacob Sadovich will be the next set in the Ideas line. This project was selected from a group of 12 ideas that had gathered 10,000 supporters by January 9, 2017. The project was originally submitted to the LEGO Ideas platform in November 2016, so it took the ship only 48 days to gather fans’ support. Pricing and availability for this set are yet to be announced. The LEGO Ideas Blog interviewed Jacob back in May 2017, where he talked about the challenges he faced creating the model.

And after being held over from a previous review stage, the Voltron – Defenders of the Universe project was also approved to become an Ideas set. You can find the interview with the author of that project, Leandro Tayag, on the LEGO Ideas Blog tool. As usual, pricing and availability will be the subject of a future announcement.
