Apollo Saturn V - Beautiful building manual and packaging !

September 28, 2017 6 Comments A+ a-


I've finally opened the Apollo Saturn V box this afternoon. I have to say that the design of the box is extraordinary and the box is not the only thing that is cool about this set. :-)
LEGO Ideas sets are just somehow special when we talk about packaging.

There are 12 packages, from small to bigger ones. White, black, grey and red are colours that dominate the set.

When I unbox new LEGO sets, I always look forward the most to the building manual. Especially in case of LEGO Ideas theme.
The Apollo Saturn V 182-page manual has a very strong cover picture.

And also the last picture. :-) My answer is definitely "YES".

I appreciate first pages of the booklet that are devoted to the introduction into the Apollo Space Program and the Saturn V space rocket itself.

I will definitely read everything before I start the build. Photos from the past times make me feel even more tempted to start building and learn more about this beautiful rocket.
On first pages of the booklet, you will also learn about the authors of the project and about challenges that they had to face while designing the set.

There is no reason to wait ! Since I haven't build any LEGO for some time, this afternoon I will start putting together the Saturn V and I am sure that I will have a very good time with this cool set.

I hope that my Saturn V will look at least as cool as the one on the cover of the box. :-)

This was one of my most anticipated sets for 2017. I have it and hope to build it around Christmas. I'm looking forward to reading your impressions on the building techniques and finished model.

Welcome back, too!

It would be amazing to create from this set dioráma like this:
