It's over earth! I have the high ground!
" Where do I begin? This set is by far my favorite Lego set to date. The Saturn V towers way above every set I own at 39 3/8" (1 Meter) tall. While building you must make sure to press the outside panels on very well, sometimes until you hear a load 'click'. The rocket is very sturdy and won't come apart on you while carrying it. This is the biggest set I own to date in both size and piece count (by 500 pieces), but I built is faster than other sets of the same price range because of the close symmetry around the rocket.
I only have three complaints though: 1) the instructions were hard to follow when clipping the grill pieces onto to lower stage of the rocket, 2) the cone going up to the third stage is not a checkered pattern as on the real Saturn V, 3) when pulling apart the first and second stage, the third stage and command module usually go flying off the rocket because of how strong the connectors are holding the first and second stage together.
Overall this set is amazing... props to the creators and to Lego for making the Ideas theme. This theme brings the Lego loving community closer and encourages people to build even more. After building this set and while lying in bed I thought an idea for a Lego Ideas set and of part of the design. I hope this theme never disappears so I will be able to buy the bricks, build, and submit my idea.
