One Huge Leap For Lego!
" We really need more sets like this, I mean the fun yet challenging build, the playability, the functionality, everything is just amazing!
My brother already had a
Saturn V model but it wasn't Lego and I figured his would be a little taller than mine... But no! This is like maybe a foot taller or something! When my mom saw it her jaw dropped "that thing is huge!"
It over 3 feet tall, the assent stage can be removed from the base of the LM Wich I was not expecting.
The one thing I didn't like was the inside of the first stage, it just wasn't detailed at all. I'll post a picture. "

Huston... The Eagle has landed.
" This set is just flat out awesome. I ordered it the same day it was released (I was actually checking out the new city space sets when I stumbled across it). This set is so amazing I don't know where to start. The assent stage has a hatch (Wich I was not expecting), both astronauts fit in the LM very well (Wich I was not expecting either), Lego has just rocked it this time. The build was genius. I mean the way Lego turned the ordinary windshield piece into the triangular windows on the LM. And I really appreciate the moon base, it just adds so much. I also really appreciate the way Lego made the Apollo astronauts' torso. Plus it almost feels like I got a set from First Man or something (I always hum the score while landing the LM, it's just so sweeping and epic!)
This was however my first expert set (and if this is yours as well, pay special attention while placing the gold pieces on the side of the LM) you need to put them on the side that the instructions angle doesn't show.)) However I have to say I think I have gotten the most fun out of the build of this set than I have gotten out of any set. Great job as always Lego!
The one thing about this set I can say I didn't like was that no names where assigned to the astronauts, neither where their heads skin colored. However this is a creator set and not a themed move set so that explains that, so I'm happy. "
