Space Shuttle

I don't know what kind of city the Lego City takes place in, but it's got a space program. I picked up this set a while ago, like last year I think, but I've only now gotten around to opening it. It's a lot more badass than I thought it would be. I'd say it's well worth the $30 it's going for nowadays, although I got it on clearance so it was more like $25. The shuttle is very substantial and a solid bit of Lego engineering. I also love that the bay doors open to reveal a mechanical arm that can hold onto the satellite. And you can pull off the nose-piece to reveal a chair for the astronaut to sit in.

And I even like how the astronaut has raybans, a smirk, and two space helmets. One based on the classic Lego space helmet and one based on the Atlantis diving helmets.

  1. It is so great to see the finished product of what you have built through puzzle pieces or Lego parts. Though it so hard at the beginning but worth the effort.
