- April 20th, 2021Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Dream come true... but QC issues!!MDMABABY | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfEver since I was a kid, I wanted the 8480 Technics shuttle set since friend had one and I've been jealous ever since. Therefore, this set sort of completes one of my childhood dream! The build itself was very enjoyable, well thought out, which is what you expect out of LEGO. However, I do have to talk about their quality control. The silver painted pieces on the Hubble are all over the place. Some look darker, some the edges looks worn out, some looks uneven and dirty... and the worst of all, the 2x2 curve tile all have 2 identical diagonal scratches on ALL of them. I also noticed the same scratch on the white ones but those aren't as important because you can barely see it. I can only assume it is a mold issue or something. Regardless, it is unacceptable from a company that prides itself in quality control. Felt like I was building a LEPIN to be honest when building the Hubble... Other nitpicks are of course the endless stickers for the cargo bay doors, the lack of a Canadian flag on the arm and stickers for the NASA and Discovery logo when it could have easily been printed out imo... definitely not deal breakers just thought I'd mention it. So, 5/5 for the shuttle but a 3/5 for the Hubble.April 23, 2021Marine, Customer ServiceOh no! That's no fun. We're sorry to hear that.

- April 9th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Magic Mirrors on the Doors are not the fairest :-/Zuul2000 | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfBeing both a fan of LEGO and a fan of the Space Shuttle the decision to purchase this set was a total no brainer - I set down to just start this model on the day I got it, ended up with it for about 7hrs from start to finish (inc food and coffee breaks ! The only "niggle" I have is with the mirror stickers on the inside of the bay doors, being on a curve - they are very tricky to align without making contact with the plastic, and when they do, you pretty much have to commit, even if the angle, position isnt close to correct - small bubbles and scratches are something most people will have to live with - the inside of the shuttle bay doors would be fine if sprayed, the same as the Hubble or even better chrome coated/plated - otherwise I enjoyed the build a lot !!!Play ExperienceAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 6 hrs 27 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55NASA Space Shuttle Discovery
- April 13th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Wonderful Displayshadowheadofthenight | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfLoved building this. For me personally, It was a masterpiece because I love Astronomy. The only 1 thing I didn't love, (Stickers). Was very annoying. Loved the Build, detail, the Amazing (Did you know?) that's in the instruction book. I am happy for what I paid for. Other than hurting fingers, the pain was so worthwhile.Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 1 days 3 hrs 55 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55NASA Space Shuttle Discovery
- April 17th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0A brilliant buildFirstMightWeasel | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI was on the fence about whether to get this set or not and boy am I glad I did. This has to be one of the most enjoyable builds I’ve done in a long time. The thought process that went into designing the gear deployment function and moving elevons is brilliant and it was neat to see it all come together as the build progressed. The Hubble Telescope is just gorgeous and looks amazing standing alone or launching from the bay. The shuttle itself has real presence due to its size and is very solid, overall a great looking set that’s fun to build and looks just as good once finishedPlay ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 6 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55NASA Space Shuttle Discovery
