Help your fellow builder by leaving your feedback based on these three criteria:
- Originality: How original is this - never seen before?
- Building Techniques: How much skill do you think the creator of this MOC has, in terms of building technique?
- Details: Express how much you like the details of the build.
Your feedback is only shown to the creator as well as yourself. It is not available for other users to see. The creator won't see your user name.
The updated backpack is 15% lighter and 33% thinner, thus closer to the center of gravity, which helps stabilizing the build.
It'll be nice to put the blue NASA logo (a.k.a NASA meatball) on the 1x1 round tile.
NASA Artemis Spacesuit Demonstration
Here is the NASA Video link: the demonstration of the Artemis Spacesuit! The press conference introduces the details of the new spacesuit.
Isn't it cool to think that the woman who is destined to conduct the first female moonwalk in the history is walking somewhere today on Earth?
Wouldn't it be also cool to see this Artemis spacesuit in LEGO stores before her boots hit the moon? 😉

Thank you very much, 400 Supporters!!!!
Please check out my Instagram (link also from my bio) for more photos of the "legonaut" build! Please share this project with your friends!
The thighs and shins were also updated. The knees bend nicely! Some hinge pieces were used on the back of the knees to cover the gaps.
The discrete angles of the rotation disks and the wedge plates work pretty well together!
The bottoms of the boots- can you read them? These would be imprinted on the luanr surface!
Yes they are written in Morse codes :-)
Another update implemented in the current design: the hinge for the helmet 44822 used to sit below the helmet (95198). Because the hinge was keeping the helmet up against gravity, the helmet was not stable and rattled a lot.
In the new design, the hinge was moved to the top so the helmet is stable and does not rattle.
Timely, the latest NASA mars rover NASA Rover Perseverance is now carrying a piece of the helmet visor to Mars for the duration test!
Shoulder range of motion
In the previous design, the shoulder covers 62360 used to be fixed and limit the shoulder range of motion.
In the new design, the shoulder covers move (rotate upward) as the upper arms are raised. Now you can reach the top of the helmet!
Thank You 300 Supporters!
To celebrate 300 supports (and the anniversary of the first moonwalk on 20th July, 1969), I outfitted the suit in the Apollo style.
Notice the helmet reflection of the LEGO lunar lander 10266 and astronaut minifigure & shadow!
Wondering if these extra pieces for Apollo spacesuit style can be included well within the 3000 piece limit.
Thank you again for your support!
The LEGO NASA Artemis spacesuit model was updated! All the updates were just approved. Please see the new images on the main page! I think the latest version reflects the actual NASA Artemis spacesuit more accurately, and the model is better-looking, sturdier, and more playable.
Since the initial post, I had my kids play with the model to find issues such as weak structures. One of the challenges was that the elbow joints (44224/44225) were too hard to move, and the arm parts tended to fall off as you try to bend the elbows.
The joint disks in the elbows were replaced with the rotation joint socket (48169/47455/48171) to reduce the torque to bend the elbows. The arms structures, which used to be held by just a few studs, are now firmly secured using the brackets (44728). The change also allowed wider ranges of motion.
I will post more details of the other updates shortly!
Thank you 100 supporters
Thank you all for your warm support.
More updates to come!
