After some serious teases the last few weeks, today LEGO released all of the details about the upcoming NASA Apollo Saturn V set (21309) and it’s huge!
The set measure 39″ tall (1:110 scale) when completed and has 1969 parts, appropriately. Many of the parts appear to printed, hopefully meaning few stickers and encouraging their re-use in other settings. This is the largest LEGO Ideas set released to date, although rumors suggest the upcoming Old Fishing Store could eclipse that number.
The set is designed by LEGO Ideas members Felix Stiessen (saabfan) and Valérie Roche (whatsuptoday), both of whom have an impressive number of sets submitted to LEGO Ideas. NASA and LEGO are also collaborating on the upcoming Women of NASA set.
The set will be available to the public on June 1, 2017 which is shaping up to be a massive release day for LEGO fans, with the new Creator Carousel coming out on the same day.
