Recent rumours have starting flying around suggesting that the extremely popular LEGO Idea set, NASA Apollo Saturn V will be retiring soon. However the LEGO Ideas team have released a short statement to clarify the future of this popular set.
It has been over a month since the official launch of the LEGO® Ideas 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V set and the overwhelming popularity of the iconic rocket has unfortunately meant that some LEGO fans have not yet been able to purchase their set or have had to wait longer than they had hoped.
Unfortunately, rumours and speculation have arisen concerning its availability, which we would like to shortly address.
We Are Continuing To Produce More Apollo Saturn V Sets Having just launched the Apollo Saturn V set recently, we will continue to produce the set according to our scheduled plans and we would like to re-assure everyone that it has not been retired.
While the set is temporarily out of stock through our online shop, with limited quantities available in LEGO Stores, our production teams are working hard to produce more sets in order to make sure that everyone will be able to purchase their copy. This does take time however and we therefore ask for your patience. The product page on our online shop is continually updated to reflect current availability, but if you have questions regarding your order you’re very welcome to contact our Customer Service.
We would like to thank you for your continued support of LEGO Ideas, and we cannot wait to bring you more exciting sets designed by LEGO fans.
Although the set is currently out of stock, LEGO will once again make it available to purchase, once stock becomes available. So checking shop.LEGO.com do its availability. You can also check your nearest LEGO Brand Store and John Lewis for locally available stock.
