In just a few short months, we’ll all be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 spaceflight that resulted in Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landing the Eagle on the Moon. In celebration of the anniversary of that monumental accomplishment, everyone’s favorite brick maker LEGO worked with NASA to recreate the Apollo 11 Lunar Lander. This highly detailed replica of the Lunar Lander is built out of just over one thousand pieces (1,087 to be precise) and includes both the ascent and descent stage with gold-colored accents, astronaut minifigs (complete with golden helmets!), NASA decals, and tool compartments. Once assembled, the 7″ high, 8″ wide and 7″ deep LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander set rests on a depiction of the lunar surface complete with craters, footprints and a U.S. flag. The NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander LEGO Creator kit will be released on June 1st at LEGO stores and on their website.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
