Truly a Masterpiece
This set is an absolute gem!

It honestly doesn't even look like a LEGO set once built but rather an actual scale model.

It's a challenging but fun build. Took me a lot longer than it would normally take someone to complete because I was filming a stop motion build. Still, it is a great value set in terms of price per brick, time to build and size of set.

If you haven't seen it already, but this this is massive! It looks stunning when displayed both vertically, horizontally or separated.

To top it all off, the piece count even matches the year of the launch!

Well done, LEGO!

The Eagle Has Landed
Wow! Where do I begin? I loved this build!!! I have been excited for the Saturn V rocket ever since I saw Adam Savage build one on Tested.com -- and wanted one for myself.

I believe the Moon Landing was one of the greatest scientific achievements in the history of mankind, so taking this on as a project was very natural for me.

The quality of the build is really REALLY solid, and flows logically as you build the three separate stages of the Saturn V rocket. I really like that you can display it as one massive piece, or break it down to the three separate stages.

My one complaint is that you only get one printed Command Module. I chose to use that piece on the actual rocket so I was left with a piece that was plain with no detail when I did the recovery scene. I wish you could get two printed Command Modules with all the detail.

The other thing I did is that I put the Lunar Module in the rocket, so no one will ever see all the detail that went into it, but since I wanted to display mine as one pre-launch piece, it just felt right doing it that way. (And I took a queue from Adam Savage's build for Tested -- I have to give them credit for giving me the idea)

All in all, I love this kit. The build was fun, and it looks amazing!!! I highly recommend it!

One word: what a landing!
Ok, so this was a set I absolutely wanted. I finally recieved it as a Christmas gift, and what a gift!

I cannot express easily all the good points, so lets list them would we?
- very large set with maybe one of the best price value (with the Hogwarts Castle). It really towers all the set I have today and even the Hogwarts Castle may blush next to it although it has three times the amount of pieces.
- very complex and genuine build that you don't want to mess up with as it can be difficult to put some pieces together once you have a big chunk of reactor in your hand. The "roundness" of the set is well thought and, without any stickers, the printed pieces really stand out. The building looks delicate at first, but once build, it is rather solid build.
- very modulable as the "real one" with the 5 different stages of flight, docking, landing, which makes it also easy to transport, which I did because I wanted to display it at work.
- easily displayable on the supports
- strong playability but better to play it as a responsible adult or child ;-)
- a collector lego that is not to joke with as it is very well designed and, overall, beautiful.
- nice building instruction with a little history behind this set.

A few bad points, however:
- some part of the build are really difficult to maintain in place until you solidify everything later on... and sometimes instructions can be confusing (but when you are excited to build, how can you do?)
- the module is a bit fragile to play with

Not fun at all
I am a regular lego buyer of big sets...But this one really disappointed me to the maximum.
Not strong enough and non symmetric enough to keep the Saturn stable..The bricks don't match perfectly as it is always the norm with Lego. lots of collapses than retry again and again due to its instability.

This is not the type of building i expected from Lego.

At A Loss For Words
I have been building Lego's for many years. First with my sons and now with my 8 year old grandson who has been building since he was four.
My grandson and I have built many challenging sets and found this one to be especially hard!
Several pieces in the mid section did not seem to fit, and we disassembled and reassembled the bottom and middle section three times and the pieces in the one small area still does not fit right!
Upon completion the three sections do not want to stay together and most definite can not be picked up one handed as one builder on here said he could do!
The stands were flimsy to say the least and my grandson was not only disappointed with the build but was thourly disappointed in the min figs

Very boring & repetitive set
I am a huge lego fan and frequent buyer of big sets, old sets and anything that looks remotely great as a display piece.

There are maybe a handful number of sections that were unique, everything else is so repetitive that i was bored out of my mind and disappointed. I mean imagine doing something 4x times and then another item 4x, oh wait let's make it 8x times after all. Then take into account that it is mostly one color, it becomes even less fun.

The finished design is impressively big, but the build experience is the worst. And I did all the big bens and london bridges :)

Poor infrastructure, pieces fall off during build
This was the most dissatisfying Lego purchase and build I have ever made. The only thing the package has going for it is the numbered bags which can be completed without the need for emptying out all the contents of all the bagged pieces. The infrastructure at the core of the rocket is flimsy, held together by small pieces that inadequately support the joints. Pieces go flying off. Large pieces (ie the outside skin) that need to be joined to the main structure end up being bowed and then will not stay on when trying to attach them to the main body. I have been at this for 24 full hours and despite using SUPER GLUE to try to get pieces to stay joined, pieces continue to fall off, especially those in the first section NOT worth the cost, NOT worth the time, and DEFINITELY, NOT worth the aggravation! I doubt I will ever get this done. I hope to just have the satisfaction of dashing it against the wall and throw it away!

Amazing detail and value
This is simply an amazing set. It turned out to be much larger and more intricate than I had imagined which only added to the fun . The final product is surprisingly sturdy and easy to handle and the level of detail is incredible.
I have it now displayed in my office. Every visitor stops to admire it and is surprised to discover it is made from Lego and comments on the level of detail and scale.

One of the best sets I have purchased.

Almost but not quite close enough.
Most will agree it is a fine representation of the Apollo Saturn V. However, if you really are a fan of the details, you'll appreciate what they got right, but be disappointed by what they chose not to make custom parts for. Namely the fins and the command service module. The fins closely resemble those of the Saturn 1B and should not be white. They are also missing the letters that were very prominent, A,B,C and D designating the location on the vehicle. A metallic gray would have been ok for the color of the fin and the left half of the base block of the fin should have been black and the right half white. Nitpicky perhaps but in my opinion, they should have at least got the shape right. The command service module is such an important piece, that more customization should have been applied. The capsule should have been shiny metallic silver with a white shroud covering it as part of the escape tower. The service module should have had it's distinctive silver and white appearance with custom reaction control thrusters. I apparently am not alone in this disappointment, for so far I have found custom fins and an escape tower shield online.
Anyways, it is an impressive Lego creation, but I can only give it four stars because of the important details it should have had.
