The LEGO set comes with eight numbered bags and five instruction booklets.

Each bag contains specific parts that are used to build a specific section of the set, so there is no confusion.

The building process is smooth, and the instructions are clear, allowing builders to enjoy the journey of putting the set together. It’s a great experience for both beginners and experienced builders.


The Tales of the Space Age set comes with four customizable postcards that can be attached to walls using a new Technic piece. The green postcard with the Polish flag, the pink postcard with an articulated main comment and a black hole, and two more customizable postcards with stars and smoke trails make the set more exciting and personal.

The set can also be connected using Technic pins, which means builders can combine multiple sets and create their space station. It’s an excellent feature as it allows for more creativity and flexibility in building, making it a fun activity for kids and adults alike.


The LEGO set retails for fifty dollars, making it an affordable purchase for most LEGO enthusiasts. Considering the intricate details, unique features, and multiple customizable components, the price tag is well worth it.
