As with anything LEGO-related, this is a realistic model. In 2017, Lego released two NASA-inspired sets, a $170 replica of the Saturn V rocket and some models honoring the space agency's early female pioneers. Most of us Earth dwellers won't get a chance to see the ISS in real life, but this building experience isn't too much.

The set emerged from a competition that LEGO held a year ago to mark the 10th anniversary of its ideas program, in which fans can submit concepts that the company would like to have produced. Oh, and the creators of the designs will also receive a share of the profits made on the set. "Packed with authentic ISS details, including a posable Canadarm2 and two rotating joints that coincide with eight adjustable 'solar panels, ' this 864-piece set is a wonderful gift idea for space enthusiasts, adult LEGO fans or any experienced builder". Ideas that receive 10,000 votes are reviewed by LEGO, which decides whether or not to put the set into production. If LEGOs are your jam, what was / is your favorite set?

The mannequin set is Lego's most up-to-date set. It will be available via Lego's website and stores from February 1, 2020, at Dollars 69.99.

"The finished model measures 19" wide x 12" long x 7" high, and includes a display stand - which is essential give the space station's unwieldy shape.

The only part of the set that isn't now included in the real ISS is the Space Shuttle.
