Purchased this for our 6 year old son for his birthday and he absolutely loved it! In fact he said it is the best Lego set that he has (and he has many)! He assembled the entire thing himself following the instruction booklets. He likes that it is interactive; you can open each housing compartment and also turn the solar panels. Overall this is a great Lego set that is really cool looking when assembled and is a lot of fun to play with!
I love space sets and this is a great addition! I did buy this for myself but had a great time building and then playing with this set with my 4 year old. The details and great and exceeded my expectations. I love how everything connects and comes together. I hope they come out with more space station related sets and I am tempted to buy a second space station set.
Growing up in the late 1970's, early 1980's, my imagination was captured every time I glimpsed the old school LEGO space mini figures and sets. Regrettably, I was limited to seeing them on the shelf, or fleeting moments at friend's houses, as our family was unable to afford LEGO then. This set does a wonderful job of capturing some of that old ascetic, updated for a modern age. Pros: The space modules. I love, love, love the way that the modules can be combined. I think there's a possibility that a lot of the space sets can be interconnected. My son and I had a blast pretending to dock the mini shuttle with the space station. I also adore the fact that most of this set uses old school parts. As I was building it, I knew right away that my kids and I can sit down and expand on this set with parts we already have. While I'm not sure how this can be displayed, I think it's awesome that it can double for a Lunar or Mars base, and will go great with those sets. I also want to address how awesome the figures are. The spacesuits look really cool, and the mini robot helper was a great touch! We even got an extra robot head, so we'll be building an extra little dude or dudette to assist the astronauts. I'm looking forward picking up some more Space sets soon!
This set really delivers. If you’re looking for something to inspire adventures, this is the set for you. Very well designed overall, with nice details, but a bit on the small side. A small point of notice; I do wonder why the solar panel section was attached so wobbly. But other than those tiny details, a great set; I even ordered it again to make it even bigger! :D
