LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V Review (LEGO)

LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V
What It Is

Blast off with the LEGO Ideas 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V from LEGO. This set is part of the LEGO Ideas collection designed by two LEGO Ideas members.

The buildable 1969-piece rocket is modeled after the NASA Apollo Saturn V rocket, which was the first rocket to put people on the moon. Once constructed you can see all the amazing display-worthy features of your creation such as the launch escape system at the top, the command module, lunar module, and stages one through three of the rocket. All of them come apart to reveal additional features, for example, you can go through the actual stages of a launch to a lunar landing to a splashdown with this set. It stands at roughly 40-inches tall. 

Is It Fun?

This is an impressive build and we love that it was a concept that came from the LEGO Ideas incubator, putting the average Joe in the driver’s seat of product creation.  

If you are a fan of space exploration and the solar system, this set is pretty darn cool. And while this LEGO model build is only 1:110 scale of the actual rocket, it’s still pretty impression in size for a LEGO set and the tallest in the history of the LEGO Ideas collection. 
Who It’s For
The LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V building set is for LEGO fans and collectors, ages 14 and up. This is definitely one that will appeal to fans of space and exploration for play and display as well as those that enjoying testing their building skills. With such a big build, this set engages older kids in constructive play as well as some cognitive thinkings as they work to piece it together.

What To Be Aware Of
