Changed my Saturn display again. It's vertical next to the LEGO City Shuttle I finished last year.

I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.

If it helps anyone in or willing to travel to California, when we were at LEGOLAND in Carlsbad over the 4th of July holiday, they still had some in stock at the Big Store. 

My 4 year old is slow-rolling me with this and getting too distracted with other sets to keep working on our Saturn V.  Eventually we'll move beyond bag 5...

Just drove to my nearest LEGO store(Hamburg) and they said they are hoping to have it in stock again in about two months. Settled for one of the slightly overpriced ones on Ebay :/.

The umbilical tower design has passed 5000 supporters now within about 2.5 weeks of when it started.

Wait!  So, rockets really are Legos?

No.[1][2]

However it IS possible to build a model rocket out of LEGO elements. Or even buy a LEGO set that gives you a model after you build it to their design.. (or something else if you use the parts for something else, obvs...)

I unfortunately knocked mine off it's stand and snapped one of the fins. While ordering a replacement, I took the liberty to be uber space geeky and ordered transparent blue studs to go on the J-2 engines. The space flight fanatic in me found it annoying that they had orange studs, LH2 and LOX burns light blue LEGO dammit!

Ah, good thinking! Together with the beige stud connecting the engine bell to the Service Module, those would be the two questionable choices in this set.

Just 2 weeks later & it's now passed 7,500 :)

I support the tower as well, but I really think it should include the crawler too. That would be the full package. With a bit more judicious use of pieces they should be able to have both in the same set.

In addition, the LUT & Mobile Launcher (2902 parts) and Crawler (1373 parts) had also been designed already, which could possibly still come, if the Saturn V might successfully conquer the market ...
