LEGO Ideas 21109 Exo Suit Review

I am a huge fan of LEGO Cuusco/Ideas since I saw it for the first time. The idea is great but personally the way LEGO does and the conditions they set for each submition is something to think about. But anyway… the LEGO Space Exo Suit.

This set is perhaps one of the best I have built in the last months. You won’t really believe that it can be done with the parts supplied on the bags.

Model background

Go on a mission to discover the amazing Exo Suit!

Put on your spacesuit and head out with Pete, Yve and their robot turtle on a mission to discover the long-lost Exo Suit! Selected by LEGO® Ideas members (formerly known as CUUSOO), this amazing model first appeared in the unofficial book, LEGO Space, written by LEGO fan and builder, Peter Reid. Featuring posable limbs, opening cockpit, grabbing claws and an intricate, modular form that you can tune to suit the most challenging missions, this amazing Exo Suit captures the essence of Classic Space design – and for the first time in 30 years, we’ve kitted Pete and Yve out in green spacesuits with the Classic Space logo! This set also includes building instructions and a fun booklet containing a cool space-themed story featuring the models and minifigures from the set, plus information about the creator. Includes 2 astronaut minifigures.

Model Box

As all the LEGO Ideas sets it comes in a small box but it is pretty full and comes with a precious manual.

Manuals

This set comes with a single manual but it is a precious big one.

Building experience

This is a fucking awesome great model! One of the very best building experiences I have had. It is simple crazy when you open the bags and the bigger part you can see is a 1×4 plate.

Here is the timelapse building.

Complete model

The model is quite fragile but absolutely gorgeous.

The Exo suit

This exo suit as I told you is simply fantastic. I love the way it moves the arms and the legs. And really it is amazing how it is built.
