Tons of companies have been releasing products to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing, but LEGO has given arguably one of the best efforts with their upcoming set. The LEGO NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander Set is impressive with accurate details all-around to please any NASA fanatics.

If you have the original Lunar Lander set, which was released back in 2003, this one completely annihilates it by comparison. The ascent and descent stages separate, staying true to the actual spacecraft. And it comes with a ladder, opening camera, gold-colored landing pads and panels, and laser hatches. Inside the ascent stage, there’s a detailed interior with room for two astronaut minifigures, which come with the set. It also includes a depiction of the lunar surface, featuring an American flag, crater, and footprints. The 1,087-piece LEGO NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander Set drops on June 1st for $100.

Purchase: $100
