- April 20th, 2021Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Dream come true... but QC issues!!MDMABABY |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfEver since I was a kid, I wanted the 8480 Technics shuttle set since friend had one and I've been jealous ever since. Therefore, this set sort of completes one of my childhood dream! The build itself was very enjoyable, well thought out, which is what you expect out of LEGO. However, I do have to talk about their quality control. The silver painted pieces on the Hubble are all over the place. Some look darker, some the edges looks worn out, some looks uneven and dirty... and the worst of all, the 2x2 curve tile all have 2 identical diagonal scratches on ALL of them. I also noticed the same scratch on the white ones but those aren't as important because you can barely see it. I can only assume it is a mold issue or something. Regardless, it is unacceptable from a company that prides itself in quality control. Felt like I was building a LEPIN to be honest when building the Hubble... Other nitpicks are of course the endless stickers for the cargo bay doors, the lack of a Canadian flag on the arm and stickers for the NASA and Discovery logo when it could have easily been printed out imo... definitely not deal breakers just thought I'd mention it. So, 5/5 for the shuttle but a 3/5 for the Hubble.23 April 2021Marine, Customer ServiceOh no! That's no fun. We're sorry to hear that.

- April 4th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Actually 4 1/2 stars....but close to perfect!I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis piece is BEAUTIFUL! Fun to build, great amount of detail and the Hubble is an added bonus. My one complaint is the lack of tiles on the underbelly...it's just exposed brick underside, not the smooth tiles that form the heatshield of the orbiters.. Maybe it was hard to do with landing gear, hoping there's a MOC somewhere to fix this. Otherwise, a close to perfect set.

- April 9th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Magic Mirrors on the Doors are not the fairest :-/Zuul2000 |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfBeing both a fan of LEGO and a fan of the Space Shuttle the decision to purchase this set was a total no brainer - I set down to just start this model on the day I got it, ended up with it for about 7hrs from start to finish (inc food and coffee breaks ! The only "niggle" I have is with the mirror stickers on the inside of the bay doors, being on a curve - they are very tricky to align without making contact with the plastic, and when they do, you pretty much have to commit, even if the angle, position isnt close to correct - small bubbles and scratches are something most people will have to live with - the inside of the shuttle bay doors would be fine if sprayed, the same as the Hubble or even better chrome coated/plated - otherwise I enjoyed the build a lot !!!Play Experience3.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 6 hrs 27 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55NASA Space Shuttle Discovery
- April 18th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Wonderful setMatyasS |I would recommend this to a friend!From my point of view the set is just perfect in every way. The design of the orbiter itself, all the features, the choice of metallic silver pieces on the telescope - everything just falls into place. I returned to Lego a year ago with the Saturn V set and was astonished with the quality of the design, but this shuttle set takes the cake. Majority of the metallic silver 2x2 curved pieces were unfortunately scratched in my set (yes, scratched, these are not mould marks), but that does not take away much from the awesomeness of this set.Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 8 hrsWas this helpful?55NASA Space Shuttle Discovery
