"We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too." - John F. Kennedy (1962)

I was excited about this set, I still like it a lot but hoped that it would raise the value of 60080 spaceport but I'm slowly loosing hope for spaceport. Too many people got it for half off or from recent Meijer sale at $40-something....

I'd think the set number would be 21310. Next one after 21309 - Old Fishing Store ....

There were also a lot of 60080 Spaceports bought at £11.33 from Tesco. The QFLLs are nearly done with these and the prices are now consistently above half RRP (£35).

This rocket looks superb, but we all know that a huge amount will be bought for resale. For that reason, I'm only buying one.

Pass on that boring tubular repetitive build of the rocket, the gantry tower as pictured would be an awesome set!

Just out of curiosity, a question to my fellow international BPers... Would the printings of "United States" or "United States of America" on the side of the rocket turn off the buyers outside USA?

Not me.  Very excited for this legendary piece of history.

I assume the "United States" will be a sticker to apply over multiple pieces, which I'm never a fan of.

After the Caterham 7 Idea project, I would not assume that any longer.

21309 is showing up as The Old Fishing House on Brickset.

 

Brickset isn't always 100% when it comes to entries - depends on the staff member who puts in the info

It's listed as 21309. Please keep it! No use in arguing about it.
