They have revolutionized space technology, creating the world’s most advanced and powerful operational rockets and spacecraft. To celebrate these achievements, we are pleased to present a modular and detail packed 1:110 scale collection of the SpaceX fleet, conceived and built with real Lego bricks.

This collaborative project was created by Saturn V Lego set co-designer Valerie Roche (Whatsuptoday) and Lego fan designer Matthew Nolan

 

Module 1: Falcon 9 – New Block 5 Variant

  • A first stage with 9 Merlin engines and black interstage. The new titanium grid finsare deployable. The black landing legs lock into landing position.
  • A removable second stage with a Dragon 2 spacecraft payload for carrying humans on missions to the Moon and Mars. The capsule detaches from the trunk and has a heat shield for re-entry.
  • An additional second stage featuring a composite fairing for cargo.
  • A highly detailed satellite payload, which compacts for launch into the fairing.
  • A dual-function stand to display the deployed satellite, or the other second stage and payload.
  • 371 bricks and 26 decals.

 

Module 2: Falcon Heavy

  • A first stage with three releasable Falcon 9 cores. The hypersonic grid fins are honeycomb and deployable. The landing legs extend out to the correct angle and lock into position for a recovery landing. Fuel tanks are also housed within each of the reinforced Falcon 9 cores.
  • Removable second stage, which delivers the rocket’s payload into orbit with its Merlin Vacuum Engine and additional fuel tanks.
  • A removable composite payload fairing, complete with test payload of Elon Musk’s personal Tesla Roadster.
  • 453 bricks and 13 decals.

 

Module 3: The TEL

  • SpaceX’s Transporter/Erector/Launcher (TEL) and launch mount from Kennedy Space Center's Pad 39a, enabling the Falcon’s rockets to be realistically displayed ready for launch.
  • At the top of the tower are the yellow payload clamps and stage 2 collar arms, which are geared to synchronize the release.
  • The tower is articulated at its base, so it can be presented vertical or leaning 15° backward for launch, held by four blue supports.
  • A three points locking mechanism in the base launch clamps hold the rockets. Adapters are included, enabling the TEL to hold and lock both the Falcon 9 or Falcon Heavy rockets.
  • 759 bricks.

 

This entire set includes 1,583 ordinary Lego bricks. It measures over 25" (64cm) high and 11.8” (30 cm) wide. 1:110 scale.
