Blast from the past

Very satisfying build experience, love the end result, the blue bricks and translucent yellow appearance tickles the old nostalgia gland, authentic Space LEGO minifgures, plenty of delightful play features. Really glad to own this, happy with the special price I paid (got it in the bubdle with the Lion Knights Castle). Recommended for any fan of the classic LEGOLAND Space series.
