LEGO Creator Expert 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander was revealed recently and will be available tomorrow, June 1, at shop.LEGO.com. The Brick Fan has revealed an image showing a patch that will most likely be free with purchases when the set launches. It has a certain retro feel, perhaps acknowledging the importance of patches in the 1970s and 1980s, when current adult fans would have had a childhood fascination with space.
“We have a deep understanding of the ways in which play can have lifelong impact, and we have been champions of the awe and wonder of space exploration through playful building for almost as long as the world’s celebration of the first moon landing,” said LEGO Senior Director of Brand Relations, Michael McNally, when the set was announced.“There are countless stories of engineers, scientists, astronauts, and roboticists who point to their experiences with LEGO building as the reason they are engaged in their current careers. We hope that our ongoing commitment to space themed play materials will inspire future generations to help us continue exploring.”
