Lego Space Shuttle comes packed with 80s nostalgia


The NASA Space Shuttle project is only now coming to an end, but the design of the space plane is still very much an 80s icon - an icon you can have in your home if you invest in the Lego Space Shuttle.

Yes, that's right, this is the Lego version of a 20th century classic. Which obviously means you'll have to make it yourself. Not easy when it means clicking togehter 1,204 pieces to build the 17.5-inch model, which also boasts a 10-inch wingspan. But once you have made it, you'll be able to impress (or scare) your friends with the launch pad, detachable fuel tank, booster rockets, robot arm, retractable landing gear, opening cockpit with two mini astronauts (male and female), opening cargo compartment, satellite, and ground vehicle.

$100 is the US price. No word on a UK price as yet I'm afraid.
