From their automotive-focused Technics kits to their detail-oriented Architecture sets, the LEGO company has mastered the art of the plastic building block. But our favorite branch of the brand might just be the crowdsourced projects done through their Ideas forum, which has just elicited another exceptional kit.
Done up in 864 pieces and measuring up at 19″ at its widest point, this kit is a loving recreation of the 15-nation International Space Station. That includes every detail big and small including the solar wings, a buildable NASA shuttle, a trio of mini cargo spacecraft, posable Canadarm2, a pair of astronaut minifigs, and more. And, as if that’s not enough, it also comes with a 148-page booklet loaded with information about the actual ISS. Available starting February 1st, this out-of-this-world kit is priced at $70.
