Thank you Lego for putting your best into this product! What better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this historical event than to build it yourself!Heck the first part of the build you get to build the Moon, which I really enjoyed. The build techniques made this build extremely fun all the way through. The only tough part was applying the gorgeous stickers not to ruin them as they are highly reflective and well put together,I'm glad there were some printed elements as well like the camera 1x2 tile and the1x8 tile used on the moon border that says, "Apollo 11 Lunar Lander".The minifigure torsos are the best printed NASA representations Lego has produced as well in my opinion.I was completely blown away by all the metallic Gold tiles included, which is not somthing I expected but like I said I really think LEGO truly wanted this to be a special set and in my eyes they succeeded.The set simply looks gorgeous!
I really enjoyed this build: it uses clever building techniques, handles odd angles, and given the way the studs face, just like in space, it is hard to work out, from time to time, which way is up. I found it strange that the descent stage was so parts intensive, yet the ascent module felt like it came together with relatively few elements.
This set has been carefully crafted to look a lot like a LEGO Architecture set and it is obviously a showpiece rather than a play set (even though it is still possible to play with it). Just as with the NASA Apollo Saturn V, the set is perfect as a show piece for a science class, either in a school or elsewhere. The fact that you can see all the little details in both stages make it a set that is not just fun to build but also interesting to see and explain.
10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander is an outstanding set, matching the high standard established by the recent 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V. The model looks fantastic on display, featuring many realistic details and numerous metallic gold elements that really stand out against the dark lunar surface. I love how the octagonal shape of the descent stage has been designed and the ascent stage looks similarly realistic.
It may not have the spatial impact of the Apollo 11 Saturn V but it just a culturally important. I'd even say it makes for a better display piece than the Saturn V. I like that it has been designed to mimic the modular nature of the actual Lunar Lander. This not only makes the set an interesting build, it could also be considered an educational tool.
It is unusual to get a space-themed set with the Creator Expert label, but hopefully this just shows the beginning of an even more diverse product line. NASA has become an established part of popular culture, and TLG follows trends closely. I am expecting to see the Moon Lander join all those Saturn V models we keep seeing on shelves of people who are not necessarily LEGO fans, but just want to enjoy an icon of science & technology.
Fans of the Apollo Program or NASA, as well as those who have fond memories of being alive at the time of the Apollo missions, will be thoroughly delighted by the LEGO Group's commemorative model. Likewise, fans of quality LEGO sets or those looking to learn high level techniques will find a lot to love in this set.
There is one simple way to describe this wonderful experience: LEGO Creator Expert 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander is a set no-one knew we needed. You don't need to be a fan of space to fall in love with the set. But if you are a fan and you already got LEGO Ideas 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V, please don't make a huge mistake of leaving the new brilliant addition to the Apollo 11 mission out of your collection.
