This rocket space set is amazing. Very enjoyable to build with many very clever touches of how parts move and work - I don't want to give the game away. My small boys (and husband!) all love the set and there is so much playability in it. Really worth the money and although it it biggish, 40cm tall or so, it is compact enough to easily display as pieces can be moved around easily. The rocket itself is incredible and comes easily apart, as do the boosters. I would highly recommend this set for £89.99. We have tons of Lego sets here and this one is really worth the money and is a lot of fun.
Hi, I bought this Deep space rocket and launch control set (60228) but the booster rockets' caps (6252260) are just not fit. I tried to turn them around, align the that small "gap" to the rounded plate under them, but they still pop up. Any idea how to fix this?

Oh no, that doesn't look right! Please get in touch with us at: LEGO.build/Service-BV so we can take a closer look and help complete your build!
It's a great looking set, and fun build. Would recommend to anyone. My son is into rockets, and loved building it together with me, and playing most of all with the rocket and launch pad.
However, the noses of the boosters (6252260) really come off way too easily. A kid really can't play with the set without constantly losing them. I mean multiple times per minute. And forget about taking off the boosters or attaching them without those noses coming off as well.
It would have been so easy to allow these pieces to connect to an axle piece from the inside for absolutely essential extra build integrity.
Our set was also missing a piece (6210385) but one can never really be sure if it wasn't lost during the build.

Thank you for your review! If you're ever missing any pieces, we're happy to send them to you via LEGO.build/BricksPieces-BV. We're sorry to hear you're having some trouble keeping the noses of the boosters together! Please double check your build to ensure all parts are in the right place, if a piece is slightly off it could result in some instability in the set. If the problem persists, our experts would be happy to take a look over at LEGO.build/Service-BV!
Got this at Costco yesterday and my son had a fun time putting this together and playing with it. There are a lot of very clever design elements in this set. The "interactive display" using blocks moving behind stickers was one of them, and a rocket gantry that "falls away" was another. The smart phone app makes everything come to life and uses some real sounds from space missions. As a parent I had just one question- What is the little white rubber band for? It is in a separate cardboard box and listed on the inventory, but we must have missed where to put it.
