This one time at space camp… I built a Saturn V rocket out of LEGO

Oh LEGO, you know the way to a geek’s heart is through their love of rockets and space. Just take a nice long look at this ultra cool model of the NASA Apollo Saturn V rocketship. Designed by Felix Stiessen and Valérie Roche of the LEGO Ideas team, this model is a 1:110 scale replica of the rocket that was the first one to put humans on the moon and it also launched Skylab.

This LEGO model stands over 3 feet tall and features 1969 pieces which just happens to be the year that the Saturn V took the first humans to the moon.

Included with the model are 3 minifig astronauts and 3 stands that allow you to display the Saturn V in sections horizontally.

The model will be priced at $119.99 and will be available on June 1st, 2017. For more info go to the LEGO Ideas blog.

    The 1969 pieces is a great touch!
    I remember those launches because as a 10 year old, I made my parents wake me up,
    if the launch was real early in the morning.

      Unfortunately my parents let me sleep. Still, I work with satellites now so it wasn’t a total loss.
