Just in time for my birthday, so I did my wife the favor of ordering it for her for me.

I was hoping this would be about 1/6 scale, the right size for Dragon's Apollo Astronauts. The LRV was 10' long, which is 20" in 1/6 scale. LEGO's version is only 15" long. Close, but not close enough.

Nevertheless, I'll be buying it anyway

Has anyone heard if 31152: Space Astronaut is compatible with the LRV?

According to some, the 31152 set is almost 10.5" tall. I don't own one, but I've seen it in person, and that seems accurate. As a result, the astronaut would be much too large to sit in the LRV.

That's understandable. They do come from separate product lines; the astronaut is a Creator 3-in-1 set, and the LRV is Technic. Having said that, there's a pretty active group of LEGO space-model enthusiasts out there (the "Bricks in Space" group on Facebook, to name just one), so I would expect to see a few MOCs in the near future.
