Attention space nuts! You don’t want to miss this awesome set revealed by LEGO: the LEGO Creator Expert 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander. It is happening and looks damn fabulous! Make no mistake, my friends. This ain’t no the reissue of the 2003 set which had just 467 pieces. The LEGO Creator Expert 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander packs in 1,087 pieces which means it is definitely way more detailed, including some pretty sweet gold elements, just like the real deal that landed on the lunar surface nearly 50 years ago on July 16, 1969.
Created in collaboration with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to celebrate man’s first moon landing, the LEGO Creator Expert 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander features a highly-detailed replica of the Apollo 11’s Eagle lunar module and a super dope base which is depiction of the moon’s surface, complete with a crater. Key details of the set are as follows:
Number of pieces: 1,087
Availability: June 01, 2019
Minifigures: 2x astronauts with NASA decoration and helmet with golden visor
Highlights: new-for-June-2019 Gold-colored landing pads and panels, opening camera and laser hatches, ladder, a detailed interior with space for 2 astronaut minifigures, new-for-June-2019 Apollo nameplate and golden elements, and a based that replicates the lunar surface with crater, footprints and a U.S. flag.
When built, LEGO Creator Expert 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander measures over 7 inches tall, 8 inches wide and 7 inches deep (20 x 22 x 20 centimeters). The 10266 will definitely make a perfect companion to the LEGO Ideas 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V. As indicated above, the set will be officially available on June 01, 2019, priced at $99.99.
Well, that’s the official date anyways. Apparently, it was on the shelves somewhere in Europe a couple days ago (May 28) and someone have bought it already for 89.99 euros. Oops. In any case, June 1 is just tomorrow, or in two days time, depending on where you are. Its not like it is going to fly off to the moon, right? Skip ahead for the designer video review.
