Here’s a great deal for all you LEGO space fans: LEGO City 60226 Mars Research Shuttle is reduced from £24.99 to £16.99 on Amazon UK. That’s a saving of £8 (32%) – an amount not to be sniffed at.
This Mars Research Shuttle has been around since 2019, so it’s likely to be discontinued rather soon. In fact, several other sets from the same range have already been discontinued for a while. So if you don’t yet have this one in your collection and would like to add it, now’s the time to do it.
The set contains 273 pieces, and is marked as being suitable for ages 5 and up, so this is the perfect set for young builders just getting into LEGO. Along with the shuttle, it comes with a mini rover, a drone and two minifigures. The shuttle itself has an opening cockpit, opening cargo doors and space inside to store the drone.
Of course, this isn’t the best shuttle currently available from LEGO – that accolade of course goes to the £170 NASA Discovery (although the £45 3-in-1 Space Shuttle is rather nice too). But for just £16.99, the LEGO City Mars Research Shuttle is a bit of a bargain. Grab it while you still can.
