The Space Shuttle era is over, with Space Shuttle Atlantis due to land in less than one hour from the final mission. However, the legacy lives on in a new Space Shuttle set from our favorite building block maker: the Lego Space Shuttle Expedition #10231. It is a great set for building, playing, or displaying, as it is a detailed and realistic looking replica of this famous space vehicle. It is a large set, with 1230 pieces and the completed Expedition stands at 17.5″ tall and 10″ wide.

I’m ordering one of these today for my boys. Thanks for sharing it!
Back in 1995 my husband and I were stopped in horrific traffic in the center of Salt Lake City and didn’t know why. We looked up and RIGHT OVERHEAD flew the Space Shuttle in for a landing. It was breathtaking; A great memory. So long, Shuttle.
