Lego!

Thought about that, but that’d fit better if I was building a Mercury - Redstone or Atlas.


#62

thats fair


#63

I’m ashamed of myself. Just bought 3 LEGO Speed Champions cars today.


#64

LEGO. Meth for functional adults.


#65

I think meth is cheaper.


#66

Doesn’t hurt as much if stepped on…


#67

Finished!
Really great model!


#68

OMG! :star_struck:

I have never been able to forgive myself for not buying the earlier Ultimate Collectors Millennium Falcon…


#69

…but it’s like $800…


#70

…but it’s like the largest LEGO set, ever…

:eyes:
:tongue:


#71

I know, I know… And not having anybody to judge me for buying it…

But dangit, this is SCUBA and flight training money. Or new video card. Or new skis.


#72

I know…! It never ends, does it?
:heavy_dollar_sign:


#73

It is a nice set, I would love to build it again, but right now I have no place to put it.


#74

Who am I kidding? I want it :slight_smile: But where to put it?


#75

Yeah, the size is an issue here…
The advantage with LEGO is tha you can reduce it to rubble again, and rebuild at your leisure.
Yeah, I wrote that to justify buying it. :wink:


#76

I wanted to buy Apollo V in Stockholm. The Lego attendants told me it sold out as soon as it showed up. They got another shipment witch sold in a few days too.


#77

The Saturn V Launch Umbilical Tower needs another 95 supporters by midnight, to be up for the next review, or it will have to wait another 3 months.


#78

It is a cool idea and I would definitely get one, but I doubt whether Lego would pick it up. It’s basically only for people who already bought the Saturn V, making this commercially a set with a very limited range. Also considering that it is physically even larger than the rocket with a higher piece count, the set on its own right is not that remarkable.

Still, would be awesome to display the Saturn V with the launch tower.


#79

Rumors are that the set is to be discontinued. The demand has been so huge that they basically have already sold the entire lifetime production run.


#80

I don’t think it will be produced either… But it would be cool.
The Saturn V was said to be produced until the end of the year.

One thing I think LEGO should do, is release a variant of their ‘pick-a-brick’ system called ‘pic-a-kit’ ordering system. You make your own kit in one of the LEGO CAD systems, and upload the bricklist to the LEGOshop. A bot collects your pieces and send them to you.
You could even do this for discontinued kits.
I bet they could do it if they wanted to.
I’m guessing there are some obscure marketing reasons for not doing it,
