It prompted a great many rumors that, perhaps, there was an Apollo 11 anniversary set soon to be announced, and not just build up for the new City Space line coming out.

LEGO revealed today set 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander, to go on sale June 1st! It is a Creator Expert set with 1087 pieces and will retail for $99.99 US. Among those parts are elements not produced in gold before and by the looks of it, a lot of neat building techniques to capture the Lunar Excursion Module’s unique shape.

If you can wait till the 5th to pick one up, you can also get this awesome rocket ride for free!
