Build the LEGO Space Shuttle

For comparison, the previous space shuttle kit that LEGO sold (we got it for christmas a couple years ago):

Notice the one-piece cockpit. This one looks way, way more fun to build (and build multiple items!), even if there’s one fewer minifig.


I’m so glad LEGO is moving away from the ridiculous single-use bricks in their kits.


This is USUALLY $24 at Target. I’ve almost picked it up a few times, but tey have had much better Shuttle models in the past, and I’m hoping the Saturn will make them consider this again.


I don’t know that I’d say that they are, because this one is in the Creator series, not the City series like the old one was. But I agree, the fewer single-use pieces the better, IMHO.


I bought this for my nephew for Christmas, and then couldn’t resist building it myself, so I had to buy him another one…
The other two models are equally great - I love these Creator sets because the alternatives are all terrific and make clever use of the parts in different ways.


That’s nice, I kinda wish they’d sell a model of a spaceship that’s still flying, or eventually going to fly. It’s depressing to dwell so far back in the past for space dreams.

Oh, the lego group has lots of payload models out there. Just precious few launch vehicles. And no current ones.


Why do you think Elon Musk started Space-X, huh?
