On April 24, 1990, at 8:33 AM, NASA launched the space shuttle Discovery and commenced its STS-31 mission, a five-day, 2.1 million mile journey to deploy the game-changing Hubble Space Telescope. Three decades later and NASA is marking the occasion via a limited-edition collaboration with LEGO to deliver a run of Space Shuttle Discovery Sets.

Unveiled by former NASA Astronaut and STS-31 crew member, Dr. Kathy Sullivan, the Space Shuttle Discovery Set was developed alongside NASA and boasts a slew of impressive details and functional elements including the Discovery orbiter with functional landing gear, payload bay doors, elevons, and rudder, and a LEGO Hubble Telescope that can be folded up and housed inside the shuttle’s payload bay or erected with its solar array. Measuring over 21″ at its widest point, this adult LEGO kit is comprised of 2,354 pieces that accurately recreate the early-90s-era 249,109lb shuttle. Sold with two stands and plaques for the orbiter and the Hubble Telescope, the LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery Set will be available in limited numbers with pricing set at $200. VIP members can also purchase a supplementary LEGO Ulysses Space Probe to go with the kit.

Purchase: $200
