My LEGO Saturn V and other Spacey goodies.


Recommended Posts

I have decided to post my LEGO Saturn V and some of my other Space-related shtuffs. 

 

Enjoy! :) 

 

 

Here's the box:

When I got home after a long day, this box at the front door really made up for my exhaustion. :D

YEEEEEEEESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!

 

 

Here's my little "display:"
From left to right: 

Saturn 1B orientation manual,

the Apollo capsule splashed-down,

the July 21st 1969 newspaper from San Fransisco, showing the headline of the Moon landing,

and the 12" Apollo astronaut that my Dad collected a long time ago.

I broke the fairing apart and removed the LES to show the LEM in the "garage."

That Lego kit is really neat.  Wish I could justify it.

I printed out a small Saturn V rocket model awhile back, but it got a bit busted up and I never got around to painting it.  I should really do a bigger one that actually comes apart properly.

I got one of these and I love it. Such a clever build. Several times as I was assembling it, I wondered where in the hell they were going with this... and then, many steps later, it became not only evident but obvious. Bravura LEGO design.

Funny thing is, when I went to my local LEGO store, they didn't have it. They practically told me to forget it. So I ordered it off Amazon no problem.

I am noticing this more and more — that physical retailers have nothing I want. Just lame crap. Instead, I hit up my electric telephone interconnecting network receiver device and get stuff no problem. Often while standing inside the very store that failed to sell me stuff! Sad!

I know, me too! I called THREE Lego stores, and one guy was like.... And I quote, "Phhhh. Good luck with that!" :D 

 

I showed him. XD
