- July 10th, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Space and sadnesspcarlos | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI 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.July 16, 2019Emily, Customer ServiceOh 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.Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 3 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Deep Space Rocket and Launch Control
- July 3rd, 2019Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Fantastic Space setJackie72 | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis 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.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Deep Space Rocket and Launch Control
- October 16th, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Great set - just a questionMemphisTNLego | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SonGot 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.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Deep Space Rocket and Launch Control
