Brickmania, which makes unofficial custom model building kits using LEGO brand bricks and parts, has three new sets for sale under the theme "Space Race."
Time for our Space Race theme! When NASA sends astronauts into space, an incredible team of people are required to make the mission a success.

The Mercury Control Center is a real to life build, featuring a crazy 16 custom-printed minifigures, 34 additional custom parts - making this Brickmania's biggest amount of printing per kit ever.

Friendship 7, which would be launched using the Mercury-Atlas 6 rocket, is one the most famous and well known missions to space. Yitzy Kasowitz has faithfully captured the Friendship 7 in this brand new Brickmania kit, featuring a custom John Glenn minifigure, printed elements, and much more.

Aside from being a distinguished pilot, John Glenn would be elected to four terms in the U.S. Senate. Glenn would return to NASA in 1998 aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery, becoming the oldest person to ever fly into space. Lando has created this amazing minifigure - order while supplies last!

As custom sets, they are not inexpensive. The Mercury Mission Control is $460, Friendship 7 is $205 and the John Glenn minifigure is $35.
