Matthew Nolan is the creator behind the NASA’s SLS & Artemis LEGO Ideas project which managed to finally hit 10,000 supporters last night. Now, the model proceeds into the current round of the LEGO Ideas review, where it will be judged to potentially become a real LEGO set.
The project proposes models of two of NASA’s ongoing projects, the Space Launch System and Orion spacecraft, which will embark on three lunar missions under the Artemis label. The SLS build measures 126 studs high, stretching just over one metre tall. An optional display stand holds the massive model in place and an update proposes a second display stand for the Orion spacecraft.
This isn’t the first NASA model to reach 10,000 supports on LEGO Ideas with multiple space-themed projects making it to the review periods in the past. Perhaps the most memorable of these is the 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V, which was recently reintroduced as 92176 NASA Apollo Saturn V. This also isn’t the first of Matthew Nolan’s projects in a LEGO Ideas review with two other models making it before this. Neither were approved but perhaps this is the time for one of his Ideas to launch.
