LEGO Launches NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander Kit for 50th Anniversary of Moon Landing

Apollo 11 Lunar Module LOGO Kit

It’s been 50 years since man landed on the moon, and LEGO is celebrating the incredible 1969 mission with a brand new model. The toy brand has collaborated with NASA to launch a LEGO replica of Apollo 11’s Eagle lunar module. The collectible, 1,087-piece set was created by LEGO designer Lars Joe and features an incredible amount of true-to-life detail.

During the development of the kit, Joe and his team visited NASA space centers in order to create a design that is as accurate as possible to the original lunar module. The descent stage features metallic gold landing pads, a brick-built video camera and laser reflector, and a ladder. The ascent stage has a detailed interior, complete with tiny control panels and storage spaces. The kit also comes with two astronauts figurines with golden helmets, and there’s even a LEGO platform that depicts the lunar surface, featuring craters, astronaut footprints, and a U.S. flag.
