As part of the Apollo 50 Next Giant Leap program, the Lego toy maker is partnering with NASA to create new building kits to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Most of them recreate modules from the Apollo series of missions, including the most famous Eagle Lunar Module from Apollo 11. According to Danish game developers, it is called Apollo 11 Lunar Lander, and there is a historical error hidden here.
Initially, the devices for landing lunar were called "lunar modules". The Lego version plays up Neil Armstrong's historical phrase "The Eagle has landed" after a successful moon landing. In other respects, the toy is very reliable, taking into account the correction for the degree of detail available to the designer. This is not surprising, because former NASA engineers took part in its development.
The official fan kit index is # 10266. It consists of 1087 parts, assembled as two different modules - landing and return. On the landing part, the support legs are covered with Kapton foil, by analogy with real spacecraft. On the returned module there is an opportunity to see the interior of the ship and there are also figures of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. The set costs about $ 100 and goes on sale today, June 1.
