Found one at the Toys-R-Us (183/Arboretum store) last week. Was jammed in behind some Star Wars sets and up-priced to $134.

On Wednesday, through a deals website I get emails from, I had a message that both Amazon and Target had it for $120. By the time I got there, Amazon was back to $188 and Target was sold out.

Someone posted a message on that site that the online Lego store was also at $120. That's when I posted here and ordered one. It might be worth it to check Amazon and Target from time to time.

I received the kit on Thursday and my youngest daughter and I worked on it off and on over the weekend. Got the SI-C stage completely done and started on SII. This is an incredible kit! My daughter is especially impressed that we're building the fuel tanks inside the stages that you'll never see if you leave the kit complete. We've got my Haynes Saturn V workshop manual out and refer to it just to show her what each part looks like in real life.

The only minor detail that I may fix is the SI-C fins are the wrong shape. They have the bottom angled rather than horizontal. I'll likely 3D print a new set.

I had a great time building this kit with my daughter as well! I'm not sure if you saw these or not, but I already have some replacement fins available. There are some pics of them on the previous page of this topic.

Thanks for the heads up on the fins but I've already got them ready to print. Took about 30 minutes to do the design in sketchup.
