The NASA Space Shuttle is flying its final missions this year. (Yes, I know. I’m sad too.) In honor of the Space Shuttle, LEGO has designed a new LEGO Space Shuttle model. Now you too can own a piece of NASA history using LEGO bricks. Just make sure that after you build it, you keep it far far away from relatives under the age of 14. If not, you’ll soon see pieces magically disappear or in random places around the house.
This is what happened to my old LEGO Space Shuttle with launchpad.
The left photo above is the set I used to own, before my relatives destroyed it. The photo on the right is the new set that I will own and no one but I will touch it! You can get your own for $100. Not sure yet on when it will be released. More photos and a LEGO Designer video past the break.
10213 Shuttle Adventure, Ages 16+, 1,204 pieces. US $99.99, CA $129.99, UK £ 79.99, DE 89.99 â‚¬
