Your next Lego masterpiece is a $120 NASA Saturn V rocket

Lego has been inspired by NASA lately. Last month, the toymaker paid homage to women who made great contributions to the space agency, and now it’s revealing an Apollo Saturn V set that also looks incredible. As seen in the picture above, this rocket stands at a little more than three feet tall and can be positioned horizontally or vertically. The idea for the piece was born out of the company’s Lego Ideas program, which lets people from all over the world submit concepts they’d like to see get made. Made up of nearly 2,000 Lego pieces, the NASA Apollo Saturn V is expected to hit stores in June for $120 — which is a small price to pay to make your Moon-landing fantasies come true.

Edgar began hitting newsrooms as a young kid in the ’90s, when his dad worked at a regional newspaper. Growing up, he had two passions: technology and football (soccer). When he wasn’t on the pitch scoring hat tricks, he could be found near his SNES or around the house, taking things apart. Edgar’s also deeply in love with tacos, sneakers and FIFA, in no particular order. He lives in New York City with his better half.
