Lego City Micro Lunar Lander

"That's one small step for minifigure, one giant leap for brick-kind."

This is a micro scale Lunar Model or LM. It represents one of the most ambitious projects in Human history and has become an iconic American story that began, somewhat, with President Kennedy's 1962 moon speech where he stated:

"We choose to go to the Moon! ... We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win ..." -JFK (more here)

I am a huge fan of the Apollo missions (read about them here) I also love all of the Lego Micro fighter Star Wars sets because they offer a lot of play-ability, a mini figure, and are at a price point for everyone. 

This Includes:

  • 105 pieces
  • Lunar Module (LM or LEM)
  • Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV more here)
  • 1 astronaut
  • Of course the stars and stripes

Hear are some closer looks at the features:

 

Here is a view of the LM from the command module while in lunar orbit

Of course when it's time to return to earth, the landing gear serves as a launch pad
