From the product description: “This anniversary collectible edition of the Classic 497 Lego Galaxy Explorer model retains all the joy of the 1979 set but on a bigger scale.”

I never had this kit, but I looked at it over and over again in the Sear catalog. Instead I spent many, many hours of my life playing with the 920 Alpha-1 Rocket Base that featured a moon scape “crater plate.”

It’s great to see Lego dig into their archives and revitalize these works of art.
