    Space and sadness

    I wanted to buy this set the minute I saw it! I was a Lego space fan so I think Lego had a good idea here. I had a great time building it, wich, by the way, is fairly easy. However, sadness was waiting for me at the end! My set is missing a piece!! At this price I think this is not admissible. This has never happened to me before with Lego sets.

    Oh no! We're sorry you're not ready for lift-off. If that piece isn't stuck in the packaging or hiding somewhere, blast on over to LEGO.build/BricksPieces. It's easy-peasy to request a replacement part.

    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?
