"Don't let the part count and price scare you away. I admit, I was a bit apprehensive, but the end product is very much worth it. As someone who played with Lego when they were younger, I always loved the space products, and I am so happy that a more accurate version of the shuttle has been released outside of the Creator line. I have been wanting something like this for my city. The build is fun, and I am sure there is plenty of play-ability for the younger crowd. If you were thinking about buying the set, but put off due to price versus part count, don't let that stop you. It is a must have in my mind for any space fan!"
