Unveiling the Rumors Behind the LEGO Icons NASA Artemis Space Launch System

Last month, whispers from brick-street point to a possible new addition to the LEGO Space-themed sets for 2024. The signs point to a possible brick-built version of an Artemis One Rocket & Launchpad, and as it turned out, it is now confirmed that a brick-built version of this technological and engineering marvel will soon arrive at our local LEGO Stores and online.

The anticipation grew with more talks of a massive LEGO Icons model set to launch in May. Fast forward to today, and it looks like those rumors hold weight, with possibly the first sightings of the LEGO Icons NASA Artemis Space Launch System (10341) set surfacing.

Price Speculations and Release Date

While initial rumors hinted at a May 15 release date with a price tag of $259.99, these details remain unconfirmed. Another cool fact about this Space Launch System (SLS) rocket is that it was known for its uncrewed Moon-orbiting mission back in 2022 which carried four LEGO minifigure astronauts onboard.

If you recall, this version of the rocket also previously appeared in a more scaled-down form in the LEGO City Rocket Launch Center (60351) back in 2022. This LEGO City set showcased NASA-inspired elements, featuring a multistage rocket with a capsule, a functional launch tower lift, and a bustling control center.

A smaller brick-built model of the NASA Artemis first made its appearance in 2022. 

While the LEGO Group has yet to formally announce the release of the 10341 NASA Artemis Space Launch System, speculation is rife that the unveiling could be imminent. With the LEGO Icons set expected to land in less than a month, fans are eagerly awaiting confirmation and further details.

Needless to say, the LEGO Icons NASA Artemis Space Launch System (10341) promises an exciting addition to any LEGO Icons collection. Stay tuned for more updates as the countdown to the launch continues!
