LEGO Honors NASA With A 30,000-Piece Life-Size Apollo Astronaut

There has been quite a bit of fanfare surrounding the 50th anniversary of the Apollo program — including near-countless homages and re-releases of actual astronaut-worn gear (like Omega’s Moonwatch or Case’s Astronaut Knife). The folks at LEGO didn’t want to be left out, apparently, because they’ve just unveiled their own tribute: a life-size LEGO NASA Astronaut sculpture.

Set to debut at the Smithsonian’s Apollo 50 Festival on the National Mall in Washington, DC, this massive model took over 300 hours and a squad of master builders to get it just right. All told, it’s comprised of a whopping 30,000 pieces. And while there are only 10 different colors on the model, the attention to detail is amazing. They even included a reflection of the lunar surface in the astronaut’s visor. If you want to see it for yourself in person, the event goes from July 18th to the 20th.
