What could be more perfect than the marrying of Lego and space? Thankfully, Lego has plenty of space-themed sets, and we're here to round up the best Lego space deals this Black Friday.

Lego space sets are nothing new: they've been around for 60 years now, with the earliest space-themed sets dating back to the 1960s. Going from very simple builds to huge, detailed recreations of actual NASA technology, Lego space sets have obviously come a very long way in that time. It remains to be one of Lego's most popular themes, however, catering for children and adults alike.

No matter how old you are or how familiar you are with Lego models, there'll be a Lego space set for you. For younger builders, sets like this fun rocket ship featuring Mickey and Minnie mouse (opens in new tab) offer a great introduction to building. And for older kits, there's a great range of Lego City space-themed sets, like this Rocket Launch Center (opens in new tab) based on NASA's real-life Artemis project.

But for us grown-up kids, it's the really big Lego sets that get us most excited. There's the 2,354-piece replica of the NASA Space Shuttle Discovery, for example, or the delicate but oh-so accurate Apollo 11 Lunar Lander

This Black Friday, a good selection of Lego space sets have been reduced, and so we've rounded up the best deals below.

This section includes deals on some of the best sets Lego has to offer on kits that are based on real world spacecraft and space stations, designed in collaboration with NASA. Although you could use these sets as toys, they are centerpiece items and would work better on display, due to the number of pieces and the difficulty to build. 

Ranging from rockets and shuttles to the International Space Station, the NASA Lego sets section of this guide has a great variety of products for you to choose from. 

Lego NASA Apollo Lunar Lander

Lego NASA Space Shuttle Discovery

Lego NASA Apollo Saturn V

Lego International Space Station 

Lego NASA-inspired Artemis sets

Like the above kits, the following Lego space kits were made in collaboration with NASA, but these are more inspired by NASA concepts than based on actual machines.

The Lunar Research Base and Lunar Space Station give us a glimpse into what the future of our efforts on the Moon will look like, while the Rocket Launch Center shows us how we might be getting there. It's all based on concepts drawn up for NASA's ambitious Artemis project.

It's not just NASA inspired kits that Lego makes, but they're also responsible for more general space sets and cool toys. These Lego space sets are cheaper than the Lego NASA ones and are better for playing with. That said, the play sets don't necessarily have the display factor as collectable sets. 

These sets are better suited for younger children, but that doesn't limit the fun to just children, anyone can have fun while building or playing with them.
