LEGO Apollo Saturn V Rocket

John F. Kennedy announced on May 25th of 1961 that by the end of the decade the U.S. would put a man on the moon. 8 years later, we did. Not that it is a competition or anything, but LEGO is looking to roll out their own version of the Apollo Saturn V Rocket in only a month.

Just like the monstrous rocket that sent the first men to the moon, this set splits into three different stages, including the Lunar Module and Command Capsule, engineered to splash land back in the ocean. The whole set is made from an impressive 1,969 individual pieces (a sly nod to the year Neil Armstrong made that ‘one small step’), and when it is stood upright, the rocket measures in at more than 3 feet tall. This makes it the tallest set that LEGO has ever made. You can look for this set, originally pulled from the Lego Ideas community, in early June.
