Amazing...This set is amazing in every way. I had only built the shuttle, so I am just going to review that. The mini figure was really cool, I love the design on its shirt and the backpack it has. Now for the shuttle.
During the build, there were no repetitive parts, and the set is overall really fun to make. It was nice seeing the cockpit go together and making the wings was fun too.
Now for the aesthetics. The space shuttle is very beautiful, smooth at its surface, and the face is unique, unlike past space shuttle sets. It was nice seeing the blue line, not just black and white. The engines were really cool as sprouting from the middle and spreading out in different directions.
The play value is pretty fun. Its main play feature is the body opening to reveal the satellite. Other features include opening the cockpit, and that's about it. The mini figure fits perfectly into the cockpit, and just running around holding it with one hand is enough to make your day. Overall, really good set, nice play value, nice aesthetics, nice build, and nice mini figure.

Ready For Lift-Off!Purchased this at my local Lego Store and was very excited when I started building it. The build wasn't too difficult and some interesting techniques were used. Playability is ok but I prefer it to be displayed. I like the classic feel of this and how well everything fits together. Very nice!

Nice setDear Lego,
I really enjoyed this space shuttle set as there are many cool and awesome features. As soon as I saw this particular set, I immediately thought of a mission for the Minifigure. That's how fun it is.
I started by making a the (very easy) shuttle. It was cool as the Minifigure gets a place to sit. The satellite in the shuttle as it as it's own docking area. Probably add in an additional cargo storage area to make it look real.
The rover is ok as the only main feature that I liked was the door.
Now the part I don't like. The space base. It was cute but maybe add in a mini rover to go with it. More improvemens:
-A bed for the astronaut
SEAL UP THAT WALL SO THE MINIFIGURE DOESN'T WASTE OXYGEN.
- Extra chairs and tables
That's it for me. Excluding the cons, it's a pretty cool set.

Why so many space shuttles?I got this set because it ha a lot of nice pieces and such. But, I ask myself, why so many space shuttles? The shuttle program shut down 6 years ago! What LEGO really needs is more rockets, mars bases, space stations, and space capsules! Do you know how hard it is to make a space capsule with room for enough astronauts and awesome functions? Hard!
But. Overall it’s nice. I just had one complaint.
It was very.... VERY incomplete! I added my own control panels to each build to fill it up. What LEGO REALLY needs is to bring back everyone’s favorite childhood toy, the classic space theme!
