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”.

Bob Fitzgerald
Space Explorer

Case is fantastic and goes together pretty easy. The background goes well with the space theme. Would love to have the option for WB to install the background as I'm sure they can do better than I do. Overal it looks great and I used the extra space to display some older space models.

Perfect once again

Delivered at about 6 weeks from ordering. Came packaged well. I’ve been buying these cases for a while now so the build is standard for me. Put together fairly quickly and looks great. I do love the added soft pads for the bottom of the case to prevent scratches especially if stacking.
