LEGO is definitely looking forward to revive the LEGO Space theme in one form or the other. After the successful launch of the new LEGO City Space sets, LEGO has now teased via social media another large set that caters to LEGO and NASA enthuasiasts. Now if you’re actively involved among LEGO fan forums and sites, chances are, you have an encountered already what this mystery set is. In fact, LEGO has given out some images of this set to several European retailers for marketing purposes. Though taken down already, eagle-eyed LEGO fans were quick to capture a snapshot of the new LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander in all its golden glory.
However, LEGO is still holding on to its horses pending a full reveal of this next Creator Expert set. Check out this 5-second video clip that highlights the first giant leap for LEGO minifigs in space.
I love how the small minifig print appears on the surface of the moon, imitating mankind’s first moon landing. The LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander is expected to be available sometime next month, with an official reveal to happen any time next week. As a Creator Expert set, this new real world set is expected to consist of more than a thousand pieces and will retail for almost a hundred US dollars. The fact that this new LEGO set is set to be released in June celebrating the 50th year anniversary of NASA’s moon landing, makes this set more appealling to fans.
It is also said that this set will be accompanied with a special promotional item in the form of a commemorative patch, similar to what LEGO did when when it released a limited edition promotional keychain that accompanied the LEGO Creator Expert Ford Mustang (10265).
