Space X Falcon 9

LEGO fans have shown their support once again to LEGO’s space-themed sets with this recently qualified LEGO Ideas product idea. The SpaceX Falcon 9 by Lego_Aviator is now the sixth product idea to make it to the First 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage.

The LEGO Ideas SpaceX Falcon 9 was inspired by the two-stage transport rocket developed Elon Musk’s Space X program. Proportionally scaled to that of the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309), this latest entry to the 10K club features a kind of modular design with its detachable Satellite and Dragon spacecraft. Here’s a closer look at the details of this LEGO product idea straight from its fan designer.

SpaceX Falcon 9 (Saturn V Scale)

Ready to grace your collections on the same scale as the recently released Saturn V set (1:110) is the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket! Falcon 9 is a two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by Elon Musk’s SpaceX for the reliable and safe transport of satellites and the Dragon spacecraft into orbit. Falcon 9 is the first orbital-class rocket capable of re-flight and is a historic new step in humanity’s quest to explore the solar system! Re-create your own missions with this feature-rich recreation.

Features include:

  • Full-stack rocket, including detailed feed lines, landing legs, and grid fins.
  • Separable second stage with removable two-piece payload fairing.
  • Deployable grid fins and landing legs with removable support struts so you can display your model ready for liftoff or recently returned for re-use!

  • Dragon spacecraft. (Almost complete, waiting on some parts)
