A note from our design team:
“We wanted to capture nostalgic memories of the original Lego 928 galaxy explorer and Lego 497 sets. We designed a photo realistic depiction of a moon landing, largely inspired by the original artwork of the Lego 928 model. We had a lot of fun with this background design as it evoked a lot of childhood memories for the team and we’re proud to have captured the fun and feel of the original lego set, whilst also paying homage to it”.
