After almost six months of waiting, the latest LEGO Ideas set is finally here! The LEGO Ideas Tales of the Space Age (21340), is officially revealed, and it’s a true masterpiece. With 688 pieces, this set features four vivid vignettes that capture the essence of classic sci-fi in a retro style.
The LEGO Ideas Tales of the Space Age Tells a Story
Each of the four post-card-like vignettes included in the LEGO Ideas Tales of the Space Age tells a different story, all inspired by the 80s stories of space exploration, myth, and posters. Each vignette display piece is full of character and tells its own unique story, making this set a true work of art.
Customizable Display Options
One of the most impressive aspects of the LEGO Ideas Tales of the Space Age is its versatility. The four scenes can be displayed separately or connected together to create a cohesive display. Additionally, each scene can be displayed standing up or hanging on a wall, making it easy to find the perfect spot to showcase this stunning set.
Availability and Release Date
LEGO VIP members will have exclusive access to the LEGO Ideas Tales of the Space Age starting on May 5, 2023. The set will be available for general release on May 8, 2023, and will retail for $49.99
A LEGO Ideas Success Story
Based on an original LEGO fan submission of Jan Woznica (aka JohnCarter over at LEGO Ideas), the LEGO Ideas Tales of the Space Age was chosen in the First LEGO Ideas 2022 Review Stage, and it’s easy to see why. Jan’s submission perfectly captures the nostalgia and excitement of classic sci-fi, while incorporating LEGO’s signature design elements. I’m personally glad and excited to see this set come to life in such a spectacular way.
