STICKERS!!!! Nooooooooooooooo!!!

Why Lego... just why!!!!!?

Because using stickers is quite common in Creator Expert sets ? Why does that surprise you? It's not an Ideas set after all.

Brickheadz $9.99 with printed parts.
Creator Expert $99.99 (or more) gets stickers.
Makes total sense I get it now.

Maybe BHz are manufactured in a separate factory that can only do (small pieces) but also has special cost-effective printing capabilities.

I feel like the designer did a good job and that this will sit nicely next to the Saturn V rocket. That said, I think LEGO missed some opportunities with this set. 

1. I get the designer base, but I would have much preferred something that harkened back to the iconic lunar baseplates of the classic space period. The lunar lander on its own is a simple functional piece of engineering . . . I'd even go so far to call it ugly as sin.  What makes it iconic is the location. 

2. Baseplate with flag forms the iconic scene. Really with all the new space sets coming out you'd think Lego would have at least made a plate for sale. 

3. Opting to not include a moon rover was probably a mistake. Again, people want that iconic scene, more than the model itself. 

4. Need a gold printed plate for the plaque, not a sticker!

5. This is an extremely hard model to design, and I think the dude did an overall solid job, but too many Black elements on the base of the model makes it look like they avoided creating elements with specific colors to save money. 

Basically, baseplate. Me want a baseplate.

I agree MT, that plaque really should have been a printed piece. 

I like the footprints on the moon's surface detail. Simple but effective.

So maybe June 5th is the hot day to order, get the lunar lander, get the patch, get the Ideas rocket ride, etc.  Again, as supplies last... roll the dice.

The lunar rover wasn’t on Apollo 11, so it wouldn’t make sense to include it.

You’re speaking from logic and using facts, when it’s obvious all of this tin foil covered crap they claim landed on the moon greatest journey was when it left the sound stage it was filmed on covering leftovers from the crafts services table. #FlatEarthTruther

Yeah, lunar rover was only the last three moon landings; Apollo 15, 16 and 17.  This set is the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11.  So in about five years we should see a UCS Lunar Rover.  lol
