    JJ should they take your money?

  5. Monty says:

    Well that’s a yes …

  6. Bruce says:

    Gorgeous model

  7. Anon Coward says:

    Love it, but couldn’t they have added the third crew figure?

    Hole in wallet duly created. Awesome. Michael, do you happen to know if the Arcade Rocket promo Ideas set is going to make it here? Would be an attractive offer to purchase this and get the promo at the same time.

    (PS IMHO two astronauts is correct. A third crew figure would make the set unauthentic – only two ever crewed the LM).

    • Michael says:

      The arcade rocket is June 5th, so it’s a bit of a gamble.

      • Andrew says:

        Thank you. Something to ponder for the twenty five seconds it will take for a set this good to go on backorder ;) .

        • Michael says:

          I’m sure the Australian warehouse has ample stock. Like 10 at least.

          • Daniel says:

            The timing is seriously odd. If the Saturn V is anything to judge by, this more than likely will sell out before the Gift with Purchase rocket goes live. This will most likely cause me to forego buying it initially and wait until a 20-30% discount sale down the track. It’s another needlessly frustrating experience to add to the Chinese Festival sets (the Dragon Boat Set is now officially retired after being available in a blink and you’ll miss it fashion). But hey, first world problems I guess.

    Take his or her money (see above) and send me one for free!!!

    Funny, yesterday I dragged out my 1975 Lunar Lander for my son to build.

  11. Jonathan Wilson says:

    Shut up and take my money please Dreamworld. (they have had every other Creator Expert and Ideas set of recent times on day one so I see no reason why they wont have the lunar lander tomorrow)

  12. Jonathan Wilson says:

    Bought this from Dreamworld earlier and it looks amazing siting on my coffee table. Well worth the purchase for anyone who likes NASA/Apollo/space stuff. (
