LEGO Launches Apollo 11 Lunar Lander

Updated with gallery of images: Sorry!

After just a single teaser image, LEGO today has announced the NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander is launching this Saturday!

My favorite part of the set is all the interesting pieces and techniques it uses. The New Elementary blog has their usual in-depth and exhaustive breakdown/review online today. Check it out for all the details and their spectacular “pile of gold” photo showcasing all the parts in that color. I’m a fan!

If you can wait until June 5, the little Rocket Ride gift with purchase will be available too and makes a cute compliment to this set. The lander will also look great with your Saturn 5 rocket set!
