LEGO announced last year that the Apollo Saturn V rocket would be turned into an official LEGO set thanks to a submission on LEGO Ideas. The Lego set now has a release date and some first look images.

The rocket model is more than three feet (one meter) high and comes with three removable rocket stages, the Lunar Lander, Lunar Orbiter, Apollo landing sites, and more.

NASA built the Saturn V rocket to send people to the Moon in the 1960s and ‘70s. It was called a Heavy Lift Vehicle and is the most powerful rocket that has ever successfully flown. The special set will launch on June 1, 2017.
