NASA's Apollo 11 moon landing celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and Lego set the stage with this epic Saturn V moon rocket set, which is on sale now for 20% off via the Lego online store.
The Lego Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V set is on sale for $95.99, down from its normal $119.99. The 1969-piece includes a towering Saturn V moon rocket that stands more than 39 inches (100 cm) tall and can be displayed upright or horizontal on an included stand.
Lego's NASA Apollo Saturn V includes the iconic Apollo moon rocket, astronaut microfigures, a lunar lander, command module and instruction booklet that includes Apollo 11 facts.
I built the Lego Saturn V moon rocket with my daughter when it came out in 2017, and the set was nearly as tall her when we were finished. Its stages come apart to see the intricate engine details of each stage.
It also includes a lunar lander and command module in the payload fairing, a moon landing scene complete with miniature moonwalking astronauts and a splashdown capsule.
The Lego NASA Apollo Saturn V set is on sale on Amazon, too, but that the price cut there is not as deep as Lego's own sale. Amazon has the set on sale for $99.99, a 17% price cut.
Amazon's Lego Saturn V deal is $16 more than Lego's own sale, but still a $20 savings from the regular price.
Lego's NASA's Apollo Saturn V moon rocket is not the only space-themed set on sale from the brick-building toy company. Earlier this year, Lego unveiled a full line of Mars exploration sets assembled (so to speak) with guidance from NASA scientists.
Many of those sets, which depict a space station, Mars bases and Mars shuttles, are on sale on both Amazon and Lego's online store. Here's a roundup of those best deals.
