Build took 3 hours 18 minutes (see my unboxing, speed build and review video) and was challenging - not one for the younger kids. Pay careful instructions to the manual as mistakes made early on can be painful to replicate (note the use of pliers in my speed build). The finished result is an unbelievable masterpiece of LEGO engineering and a fitting tribute to the pioneers that took one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

But... the retail price of this item is $119.99. It is a new release and very popular, sold out on Amazon and the LEGO site as soon as it was available. It should be in stock at the regular price again once they catch up to demand, so don't shell out extra money to these third party "marketplace" sellers unless you have money to burn and don't care about wasting it. And even then it's good idea to pass and not reward these sellers... they are the reason the set is out of stock, they buy them all up so they can turn around and gouge you!
I got the frustration-free packaging and was worried that it wouldn't come with the normal Lego box. That concerned me because I wanted the full experience for this set. Thankfully, the frustration free box is a box just big enough to hold the whole set including the regular box. It's shipped in this frustration-free box which is good and bad. It's good because it protects the set without the need of a huge box and padding. It's bad because while it doesn't say what set is inside, it does say "Lego" and "Toys" all over the box. It was ok, but my children really wondered what was in the box which reduced the surprise.
But I don't care how it came--the set is mine! It's 100% worth the hype. I strongly suggest this model. Lego has said they will keep making more through 2018, so you should be able to buy it without paying scalper prices. But I suggest you keep watching Amazon and other retailers and buy one for yourself!

I'm not Lego-opposed or unfamiliar with putting things together, but I have to say I was absolutely blown away by the apparent Quality Assurance that went into the overall EXPERIENCE of this set. I'm not up to date on modern Lego - I'm not an enthusiast - but everything from the manual, to the compartmentalized packages-in-steps of pieces was just perfect. It's no puzzle putting this thing together, daunting as it may seem with it's nearly 2000 pieces. The instructions are clear, distinct, and delineated into clear stages of building. I was never (not once!) confused or lost while building this and each step was an absolute delight. There are no stickers or decals or any fussy touch-ups needed either: every decal on the final product is pre-printed directly onto a piece.
So what of the finished product? Check for yourself, I'm sure there are tons of photos on this very product listing. It's impressively detailed and quite striking in scale. I don't often splurge on this type of thing, but Lego Ideas sets are now 100% on my radar for future purchases if they all have this much care and attention put into their manufacture.
The rocket stages hide an enormous amount of detail inside their tube bodies. This kit is far more than just the outside of a rocket, but only those who participate in building it will discover the joy of the little connectors, thrusters, and doodads inside.
It is incredibly tall. Have the conversation with your family about where to store it before purchase, to avoid heart ache. It's also incredibly sturdy. It takes quite a lot of force to separate the sections, but this also means you can trust it'll hold itself together very well.
