This set should be $25 dont spend more. I bought 2 sets from lego.com with free shipping 11/2/17.
I recieved this as a Christmas present & I love it. It was simple to put together & looks great with it taking pride of place on my bookcase! I would love more Lego sets like this as this is the sort of Lego I'd like to collect in the future!!
The LEGO Ideas Women of NASA (21312) set is nice looking set that has a similar feel to the LEGO Ideas Research Institute (21110) in terms of the small vignette builds for the women featured. I do appreciate the accuracy of the minifigures to the builds themselves especially the one for Margaret Hamilton in that iconic picture. The builds themselves are vast upgrades to what was proposed on LEGO Ideas. There are no stickers in the set and the designs on the bricks are all printed. It is unfortunate, however, that we did not get a minifigure and build for Katherine Johnson but it seems that LEGO couldn't get approval for her inclusion.
This set is an above average LEGO IDEAS set. It contain four awesome well designed female minifigures. It has three completed vignette builds, nil stickers and more importantly printed bricks/tiles and name tiles. The pricing for this licensed set is very well priced, affordable and value-for-money.
I like this set. The stories that go with the builds are inspirational and this in turn enhanced my experience of it. It is now available through LEGO retail channels, and is unlikely to see a significantly wider release until next year. I do feel that $AUD50 is a bit more than I would normally feel happy to pay for a set of this size(approx 17¢/piece), but it feels like you are getting so much more than a collection of LEGO pieces – and it has been a while since I bought a set that gave me that feeling for less than $100.
21312 Women of NASA truly has something for everyone. Showcasing amazing women who may not be well known to the general public, outstanding mini-models and excellent printed parts with wide applications for MOCing. It even meets the magic price to piece ratio for those who still ascribe to that. Finally, it makes a great display and conversation starter piece. I highly recommend this set to any LEGO fan, especially at this price.
I often find it interesting to see how much has changed from the original submission, and 21312 Women of NASA has changed substantially since it's initial project. It's for the better though, as the project was much more simple. There have also been serious changes to the minifigures, but that was inevitable, as the LEGO representations would have to be more aligned with the actual people.
I was expecting this set to be an easy pass but now having built it, I like it. It offers a pleasant building experience and it makes a nice display piece. It's well designed, the minifigs are excellent and there's a smattering of new-ish pieces in it. The manual is informative and perhaps best of all, there are no stickers.
So… is it worth it? Absolutely! The more substantial display bases and more detailed Shuttle and Hubble models definitely elevate this from what might have been little more than a ‘battle pack' of historically important figures into a gorgeous display set, true to the original fan submission, and which any NASA enthusiast or Lego builder can be proud to own.
I wholeheartedly endorse LEGO's specific attention to the achievements of women in STEM with this LEGO Ideas set, and I hope that it will inspire more young women to choose education and careers that will lead to the next great breakthroughs for humanity. But setting aside the subject matter, this is still an excellent LEGO set on its own merits, with some great printed parts, fantastic minifigs, and fun little display models of the Shuttle and Hubble especially.
A satisfying set with a simple build experience that is great for novices starting out especially if they are Space fans.
It may not be a large scale set and it won't take you ages to build, but it that doesn't really matter, it's what the set represents which is the greatest appeal. Something that was clearly evident during the projects voting stage. LEGO did come under a little criticism when they released set 21110: Research Institute, when some suggesting it was a merely a way of answering the ‘lack' of gender diversity in LEGO sets. This set hasn't been met with the same negativity and will only help to inspire the younger minds to take the same stride as the women celebrated in the set.
