- July 25th, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Fairly, out of this worldTonni | 19-24I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfDream come true!!!! I’ve been a lego fan from a very young age. Since then, my time just deteriorated. I always thought of my dreams of a toy space ship and a functioning crew. I looked through all the sets of 2019 space and wasn’t disappointed. I finally took one home. The LEGO “Space satellite service”, for ten dollars! I was stoked and even picked up two. The unboxing seemed odd but nonetheless satisfying every time you dump it out. It was one of the most pleasant sets if not the most I’ve had in a while. A week later I figured to go and grab another yet bigger set. The new capsules from the “Mars shuttle” looked like it came straight from Interstellar!(Awesome). The $40 gave me high expectations! I had researched quite a bit on the company. I love it, the founders and the people. Mostly the philosophy. “Quality”. Every set I gotten was either awesome or awesomeER. THIS sets been completely photoshopped to the point where the capsules are white. Once opened the capsules are Blueish gray whittled.(I know, it’s a bit to much of a rant for a toy). But I missed the quality. And the space sets I love and hope will continue. Anyways apologies to anyone who made it to these words. That was that. But overall I think it’s a great set that has great pieces for collector-builders. I just don’t know if LEGO is saving money in the long run or if it’s to help the environment.(I had customized it a bit) This years sets was literally a dream come true! Thanks again LEGO! Hoping next year is a better space year for everyone.

- December 28th, 2019Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Happy KidDenverTwinDad | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!I built this with my twin son and daughter (age 4). They are so excited. It was a bit too advanced for them to build on their own, but they can't stop playing with it. And building it brought me back to when I was kid playing with legos. I highly recommend this to any future Mars explorer.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Mars Research Shuttle
- October 29th, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Spaceship!Pezz | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfRelaxed build over 2-3 hours with some background movie watching, then dismantled it and rebuilt it with my niece of 4 and grandfather the next day and we all had a blast! (Thrilled to bits to see my niece thoroughly enjoy her first taste of Lego!) The set design is wonderful, a number of sections I found to be particularly clever in their design and it's a delight to build. The stickers and off-axis parts like the engines and wingtips give it a ton of flair, really adding to the already existing details and the shuttle alone would make for a great display model. The inclusion of the rover and tiny drone are a pleasant bonus. Lego at this time is very much a luxury for the big kid that is me, it's something I can afford but rarely, so I'm picky with which sets I generally go for and I must say absolutely that this set is fantastic value for money. You will end up with, as mentioned, a great, and surprisingly sizeable display piece with oodles of character. Should you wish to break it back down again, there are plenty of unique and useful bricks that can augment other space sets or create something new entirely, I am still exploring the rebuildability of this set and I'm excited by the possibilities! I had to dock (pun intended) one star from the final score, as I do feel there are a few minor and/or subjective cons to this set. My first is the landing gears, I feel they're far too small (I think I am not the first to mention this) and somewhat fragile-feeling. The cockpit canopy could in my opinion be designed to affix more securely, or with some kind of hinge system (It's affixed via the white 2x2-pin wedge on the nose) as it's a touch wobbly-feeling overall. And lastly the grip of the rover's claw doesn't really interact too well with the things it's supposed to, for me at least, and it's difficult to get a good grip on the samples for example for display or play purposes and that for me does bring down its play experience *ever* so slightly. I say this after having to go hunting for a sample brick that pinged-off and under furniture! :P Overall a solid 9/10 set. Great design, satisfying build, tons of play value and great value for money makes this a worthwhile set to grab for those looking to start their City/Space collection!Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 3 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Mars Research Shuttle
- July 1st, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Needs a RunwayJonnyQuest | 55-64I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfGuessing here, but I think the "story" behind this set is that astronauts in orbit around Mars in a space shuttle are controlling a Mars drone and robotic exploration rover on the surface, then a rocket box (?) lofts a rock sample up to the ship for study. You get a little of everything, here: a shuttle, two astronauts, a six-wheeled rover, flying drone, rocks, and return box. If you're looking for a Lego "sampler" of the new City Mars Exploration set, this is probably it. Two gripes: the landing gear is too small for a shuttle this size, and the shuttle "cargo bay" will only fit the astronaut and a box, not a satellite or anything larger. The shuttle would not be able to land on Mars unless astronauts on the surface build a runway! Still, I think there's good play value and parts value here and if you can't swing the price of the whole series, this is the one to get for your budding astronaut.Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 1 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Mars Research Shuttle
