After the Snowspeeder, Carousel, and now Saturn V Lego can take the rest of the year off. Three outstanding sets.

2 redesigns (3 with the falcon) and a third party design? Nah, I think they could do a bit more to live up to the "Creator" name.

So Ford should give up on the mustang because it's just a redesign? Both sets are total rebuilds from scratch. Give their designers the credit they're due.

Normal realism has resumed. Otherwise known as doom and gloom by optimists

If this thing can stand up and not fall apart... oh man

Among other arguably larger achievements it may be the first set I actually rush out to buy and build as soon as available. Price seems great for QUALITY (piece count and weight are only factors) - not a steal (perhaps $100 would have been), but very fair.

I'm Absolutely in Love!

Price is just spot On. This year after mediocre 2016 is going to be amazing for us in terms of great releases.

Can't wait to get this in my hands dive into the story of the historic shuttle and entire mission then display it proudly next to my CUUSOO Hayabusa

I'm still curious about the letters and the US flag.  I'm crossing my fingers that stickers are minimal.

They look too perfect but we will have to wait and see.  I personally believe there are no stickers.

After realising today that there is no early VIP release of 75144 tomorrow as I'd originally been led to believe, seeing this set has cheered me right up.

Fantastic execution and can't wait to get my hands on one.

May just be in store.

Highly likely will be the same as it was with Silent Marry. You have to log in to your LEGO VIP associated account to be able to add the set in to your cart and finalize the transaction with all amenities incl R2D2 Poly and free shipping.

Hmmm. Guess I'll see at midnight. It usually shows early releases on site if you sign in with your vip acct but no mention of anything but May 4th release. Anyways we're off topic.

Really hope this one gets an early release too.

Beautiful set!!! Really pleased to see an ideas set with a huge piece count as well, as historically they have always been smaller models. Really sets the bar for future models.

This is an amazing set and will look incredible on display.  Great job LEGO and LEGO Ideas!

This definitely passes the CEO credenza test.  The set has already made headlines!

Agreed. I'm giddy with excitement. I even showed the wife and she was impressed. That's saying something.

I'll show the wife when I start building it.  It won't take long for me to crack open.
