Recommendation: meh 83 / 100 by Tom

The main drawback of the Mars Research Shuttle is the price. It does not come at a good value. The set has a nice design, comes with good Minifigures, and a lot of play potential. It is not my favorite shuttle, but it is a good one. If you plan to buy this kit, I suggest waiting a while. 20% off sales are common, and at that price, you are much closer to an average cost-per-brick.

Recommendation: no 6 / 10 by Nachos Grande

This is a tough set to review because if you ignore price then it's a lovely set. You get a fun shuttle and an equally fun second vehicle plus a pair of minifigures and a few other odds and ends (drone, space rock). On the other hand, a suggested retail price of basically $40 for only 273 pieces and two minifigures is a terrible deal. If you can find this for closer to $30, I'd recommend it [...].
