The Lego Creator Shuttle Adventure is truly a wonderful way to remember the end of an era as the last shuttle has just gone into space. Lego has done amazingly well at capturing all the details of a shuttle. No surprise really since Lego always do an incredible job with their brilliant Lego creator sets.
The Lego Creator Shuttle Adventure has a 5 Star rating on Amazon.com.
If you have ever had the privilege of owning and creating the magnificent structures such as the Lego Pirates Imperial Flagship or the Lego Police Station, then you will find the Lego Creator shuttle a beautiful set.
This is not really recommended for young kids and the recommended age is for kids aged 16 years and upwards!
Blasting Off Into Space With The Lego Shuttle
This 1,204 piece Lego set is incredibly detailed and realistic looking.
It comes with:
- 3 minifigures (1 male astronaut, 1 female astronaut and 1 service crew member)
- separate and detachable fuel tank
- solid rocket boosters
- retractable landing gear
- opening cockpit with seats for 2 astronauts
- 1 ground maintenance vehicle
- a satellite
- working cargo bay doors
- movable shuttle jets
- landing gear
As you can see, there are a lot of extra pieces and touches that really add to the overall set once the shuttle has been built.
On average it appears that the whole set takes from about 3-6 hours to put together depending on your experience with building these Lego sets and how many of you are building it.
There are plenty of characters and extras included with the Shuttle Adventure 10213 set. If you wanted more you could by the Lego Community Miniature Figures Set although this does not contain many characters and accessories related to space, it has 256 pieces from normal everyday life.
In any case, you and your children will have hours of fun and imaginative play with this Lego Shuttle creator set once it has been built.
If you want to remember the days of the Space Shuttle missions and the era of space exploration, then Lego have captured the mood of that era extremely well.
You won’t want to miss out on buying the Lego Creator Space Shuttle.
