LEGO® Ideas 21321 International Space Station
On January 22nd 2020, LEGO has revealed the first LEGO Ideas of 2020: the International Space Station. It celebrates, as well, the 20th anniversary of the Station, the space outpost of humankind.
I am Italian, and at the time of the release, the Commander of the International Space Station is Luca Parmitano, one of the Italian Astronauts.
The official release of the set is reported in the LEGO Ideas Blog where you can find all the information and the pictures.
After my first posts about the Star Wars and Harry Potter Advent Calendar 2019, I decided to show to you here my first impression of the set.
The International Space Station is a 864 elements and it has all the details. I think that the station is quite big, and robust despite the solar panels and all the suspended structures. The model is a 1:600 scale of the real one. It also includes a space shuttle and 3 cargo modules. There are no minifigures, but two microfigures astronauts, likewise in the LEGO Ideas set 21309 Saturn V.
The instructions booklet will have 148 pages with facts of the space station and the story of the creator: Christoph Ruge.
The box and the release pictures you can find online and you can already see several details. The size of the set is 20x31x49 cm and it includes a pedestal to hold it.
I am super enthusiast of the set, I am passionated of space and it looks great for me. It will be a great add-on in my collection.
Special Gift and Recommended Price
There is also a nice add-on to the box, that I guess it will be available for a limited time. Likewise the Apollo XI LEM, in July, there will be a dedicated patch for the International Space Station.
Finally, the set will become available to purchase on February 1st, 2020, from shop.LEGO.com and LEGO stores around the world.
Recommended retail price are: US $69.99 – CA $99.99 – DE €69.99 – UK £64.99 – FR €59.99 – DK 549DKK.
However, if you were in Germany, at the LEGO Store of Nuremberg, on January 31st, 2020, from 17:00 to 20:00, Christoph Ruge signed the boxes. The address of the event is: The LEGO Store, Breite G. 39, Nürnberg/Nuremberg, Germany.
