It is relative easy to build. Just wish they added more figures on the set, like 5 instead of 4, and each has their own stage. But overall, it's awesome! look forward if there will be another exclusive set of NASA part II :)Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty2.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 30 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Women of NASA
- November 2nd, 2017Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Very Educational Settkhuang |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI am actually glad that LEGO made this set. As a long-time astronomy fan, I find this set very fun and educational. There are many female scientists who have made excellent contributions to science and technology, or even played a key role in the development of science, but are often ignored or not well-known (as for me, I actually don't know about Margaret Hamilton and Nancy G. Roman until this set came out). It is good that LEGO made this to honor these female scientists for their contributions. As for the build itself, I especially love the space shuttle and the Hubble Space Telescope, and I really think LEGO designers have captured the essence of the two spacecrafts. The four minifigures have very nice and unique torso prints as well. Overall, I highly recommend this set if you are passionate about science or astronomy.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty1.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 45 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Women of NASA
- November 2nd, 2017Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Out of this world set!I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is such a great little set! I knew I wanted to buy it the moment I saw the recreation of Margaret Hamilton's iconic photograph with the huge stack of code. It's a simple idea, but executed very well and looks great on my shelves. The inclusion of the brilliant Mae Jemison (and the tiny shuttle) made this a must-have. It's absolutely fantastic to see Lego honouring the women of NASA in this way. I missed out on the Research Institute, but this set will let me put female scientists in all my scenes, and I couldn't be happier. The NASA theme aside, if you're looking for a variety of female minifig parts, this set is great value. Most of my other sets are overwhelmingly male, so I'm really excited to be able to widen the number of women in my collection--including a woman of colour! Thank you Lego! It really is thrilling to see sets like this. Long may it continue!Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty1.0Value for Money5.0Building Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Women of NASA

I have found that the actual Lego stores seem to have a better "in-stock" than the website. This is also if you are fortunate enough to live near an actual Lego store. The Women of Nasa set is a great, low priced limited edition set that was done very well in my eyes. It has good play value and its educational for the kids and adults. This also compliments the Apollo ship nicely (If you can get one). The IDEAS line continues to be a great way for Lego fans to add to the already terrific line of sets.Play Experience5.0Value for Money5.0Building Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Women of NASA
