I like the mini mini figs. Will go down a storm with the detailed / realistic sale architecture AFOLs.

You'll be glad to know that you won't find any stickers in this set

What's the beef with stickers?

In what sense?

Admittedly they can be tricky to align if you're not careful but the quality of Lego stickers is phenomenal - I've had sets which my kids have taken in the bath daily for months, dragged through dirt, left outside in all weather conditions, chewed and generally abused in most ways imaginable and those stickers look like they did on day one.

Apparently people are estimating that they're fairly close to scale accurate.

Yeah, I expect so. I'd just prefer proper minifigs of Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins

Yeah, got the email this morning. It's stunning. It's my favourite Star Wars ship, so think I need to get on it.

Been trying to convince myself I've got the space for it for a while now.

I would love that Saturn set. Nowhere to put it so Im seriously considering decomissioning my bookshelf above my desk and repurposing as a Saturn shelf.

Do I have to do a funny order thing to get this or is it available in normal shops?

Theyre usually available early to anyone who has an online Lego shop account but they do come to normal shops too, so you should be able to get it wherever you want but with a bit of a wait.

The Lego Shop in Liverpool One will definitely have it for sale. If you sign up for VIP, which is free, then I think you'll be able to pick it up a few days before the normal release date.

Its not out yet. Release date is 1st June so you wont see it anywhere until then. Keep an eye on this thread though, from the sounds of it there will be a few early adopters here.
