The LEGO International Space Station kit is a product of LEGO Ideas, which is a branded platform where people can submit their ideas — however outlandish they might be, and the brick toy company reviews them if they gain traction. This release was inspired by an individual named Christoph Ruge.
With a total of 843 bricks, the LEGO International Space Station kit is releasing on February 1st. It is said to be seven feet tall and will retail for $69.99 USD. In addition, the product is endorsed for its authenticity by NASA. This is just icing on the cake as the concept is intended to "celebrate 20 years of humans' presence aboard the ISS.
The introduction of the replica was highlighted by its "literal launch into the stratosphere" with 32 miles.
