- July 16th, 2017Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Best of the BESTYuri |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is awesome !! It is quite big and the price is totally acceptable (1969 PCS) although some parts don't fit perfectly and some not very stable. Everyone who loves space should get one. And the space shuttle I highly recommond as well. It is cool. BTW, I am trying to build a launch pad for the Saturn V. Does any one have some suggestions?Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 6 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55LEGO® NASA Apollo Saturn V
- June 4th, 2017Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Wow. This set is amazing.dustin84 |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI grew up loving NASA, especially the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions. I used to build makeshift rockets and pretend they were the Saturn V, Command module, and Lunar module, but they were nothing compared to this. When I first saw this was coming I pretty much knew I had to have it. So let's get to the review. First of all, this is a massive set at 1969 pcs and the finished height is about 1 meter so you need to have space for the build and display. Opening the box, you have 12 bags and the insruction manual. It's basically the size of small catalog. It does come with some information about the Apollo missions and the design(ers) of this set. The instructions are fairly easy to follow, even for someone like myself who has only built a couple of sets in the last 20 years. There were only a couple of places where I had a little confusion, but was able to figure it out. The bags are also neatly sorted by the steps so you only have to open one bag at a time, making things even easier. That being said, the build still went fairly quick considering the size. I didn't time it but I estimate about 5 hours total. The finished product is absolutely stunning. The detail that went into this project is just fantastic. And as I said before, it is massive. Pictures don't really do it justice. I only gave the play rating an average. However, mine will be for display. It is possible to play some, but the sheer size makes that a little more difficult. Also, the area around the Command module isn't as play frienldy as the other sections. That area doesn't easily detach like the bottom sections. I would recommend this mostly for display. This product is definitely worth the money spent, especially for a Saturn V/Apollo fan such as myself. But I think anyone, other than someone who wanted a play set, would get a great value for the experience and quality of this prodiuct. TL;DR review: This is a great set quality and value wise, unless you want it for play. It is still somewhat playable though. Overall, a fantastic set that I would definitely recommend.Play Experience3.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 5 hrsBuilding Experience: Novice LEGO builderWas this helpful?55LEGO® NASA Apollo Saturn V
- June 5th, 2019Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Truly a MasterpieceI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis set is an absolute gem! It honestly doesn't even look like a LEGO set once built but rather an actual scale model. It's a challenging but fun build. Took me a lot longer than it would normally take someone to complete because I was filming a stop motion build. Still, it is a great value set in terms of price per brick, time to build and size of set. If you haven't seen it already, but this this is massive! It looks stunning when displayed both vertically, horizontally or separated. To top it all off, the piece count even matches the year of the launch! Well done, LEGO!Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 22 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55LEGO® NASA Apollo Saturn V
- June 5th, 2017Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Amazingly Fun Build!I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: Self21309 Saturn V is the rocket that took Apollo 11 to the moon in 1969. My favorite build I've done so far. The build was challenging and extremely well designed. It's outrageously fun to watch everything start to take shape . The set can be repetitive without being tedious however. Comprised of 1,969 pieces (also a reference to the year of the moon landing), The Saturn V rocket is made up of three sections that separate to show its operation in flight. The set also features a small lander scene (with an extra astronaut), as well as the water capsule the astronauts returned in! The rocket stands just under 3.5 feet tall and was an amazingly fun build clocking in just under 7 hours of total build time. Pictures included below including one with a bottle of water for scale.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 6 hrs 47 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55LEGO® NASA Apollo Saturn V
