- April 8th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Leaves you wanting MORE!!!Wookietiddy | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI absolutely adored building this set. The detail is fanTASTIC all over. The CANADARM and the Hubble are amazing additions to this set. I love that the Hubble fits snugly inside when the solar panels are removed. The mirror stickers on the doors were a PAIN to get lined up, and there are annoying gaps around them making it obvious that they are stickers. My 1 complaint is this: Now that I've built it, I want the Orange Fuel Tank and Solid Rocket Boosters used to launch it into space. Lego, if you offered this addition, I would pay another $200 for it. It already looks great next to my LEGO Saturn V. Adding the detail of the boosters and fuel tank would take this set to the next level.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 6 hrs 30 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55NASA Space Shuttle Discovery
- April 4th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Actually 4 1/2 stars....but close to perfect!LegoJay22201 | 45-54I 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. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 7 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55NASA Space Shuttle Discovery
