    Well done PeriJove. Will likely be picking this one up.

    As I also mentioned on the Breaking News comment, Awesome! I've been waiting for this since it's original debut on CUUSOO. Glad to see it will be available soon. It certainly looks true to the original.

    I will definitely be buying this set, and it will probably find a place next to my Hayabusa.

    Congratulations to @Perijove!

    Hopefully this partnership with NASA will spark more space related sets. I've been reading Canada's very own astronaut, Chris Hadfield's book, and I'm getting more and more interested in space flight.

    The space rover looks like a really awesome set, will definitely be picking it up.

    An ISS model would be fantastic.

    It could definitely be a series with a lot of potential, I'll definitely be picking this up. Would love a Saturn V or a jumbo jet with a shuttle on top

    At first, it looked like the label in the corner said Cuusoo #035.
    I was wondering where the hell I had been.

    I'm surprised they haven't released a spaceman with a guitar too.

    If my 6 year old can recognize this sets as a Mars rover, they have done well with it. :-) We will be getting this set.

    Fantastic, I echo the calls for this to spark more space/exploration themed sets. Cant wait for this.
  • jockosjunglejockosjungle Member Posts: 701
    Loads of iconic designs, unfortunately I lack the skill to enter a Cuusoo project. Probably mostly been done, hubble, some of the earlier rockets, lunar module, an astronaut minifig series, some of the Russian stuff, even some of the concept ideas, etc.

    Interesting. Limited to 1 in the US but 5 in the UK.

    It'll probably be more popular in the US, given that it's based on a US rover.
  • mathewmathew Member Posts: 2,098
    So is this available in stores yet?
  • CalvCalv Central EnglandMember Posts: 895
    Not in the UK stores, it is online only in the UK at least. Not sure about elsewhere.

    Nah, love for the Curiosity Rover or NASA for that matter is pretty much universal - pun intended.

    On second thought, I need to strike 'NASA for that matter' from the post above.
  • PerijovePerijove Member Posts: 116
    @Paperballpark, while it may seem that the Curiosity rover was solely an effort by the US, it was really an international one. Spain provided the High Gain Antenna, Germany helped with the Radiation Assessment Detector (RAD), and the Rover Environmental Monitoring Station (REMS) was contributed by Spain and Finland. That's just what I could remember off the top of my head. There may have been contributions from other countries, as well.

    US is a volume market, and it's currently limited volume. The limit of 1 makes sense to me.

    I ordered this set yesterday. Since it's backordered, it will not ship until 1/14/14. Can't wait though!
  • Lego91Lego91 GermanyMember Posts: 86
    Same here, ordered it some days ago, will not be shipped until February. My first Cuusoo-Set!
  • jediami65jediami65 United StatesMember Posts: 474
    Got mine Friday built it Saturday it's a great set, I really like the wheel assembly/rocking arms that resemble individual suspension, had to pry it away from my son "It's for display only" I told him. I will probably get him his own he's been asking about it. It has been a conversation piece for us and going through the manual with the pictures that were included from the real Rover were a nice addition.

    We need more sets like this.
  • StryfeStryfe Member Posts: 10
    I really like the look of this model. Pity I can't pick this up, no stores in Singapore carry any cuusoo.

    Ordered 1/10 received 1/14 in US. I wonder why there is a back log.

    Yes, that is the thing I did not understand. Why would my order on 1/7 not ship until yesterday, while orders two days after mine shipped last week? There seems to have been something a bit wonky happening with this particular order/back order process.

    I almost posted yesterday about it and before I did I got the shipment notification finally.

    Wonky!

    Yeah, I don't get it either....

    I ordered two items, Curiosity #21104 and Cargo Terminal #60022. I was surprised at the quick turn around.

    FYI - I'm on the west coast USA.

    well, I finally broke down and ordered this last night. It's a great looking little model. Was going to just wait awhile and hope it shows up in the store at some point, but now I think I don't want to risk it.

    It said it was back ordered until March. I'll keep you all posted on that

    ^ If you have local Lego Discovery Center then they have them in stock at the store.

    Do they have them at regular LEGO Stores?
  • dougtsdougts Oregon, USAMember Posts: 4,129
    ^ eh, I'm in no hurry. I've already ordered it, so I can wait until it arrives.
  • emilewskiemilewski CT, USAMember Posts: 476
    I ordered yesterday and it stated it was backordered until March 1st. It just shipped today. Yay!

    It is now Sold Out on [email protected]
  • bluedragonbluedragon United StatesMember Posts: 505
    That was quick. Still available in Europe for those who missed it.

    I'm waiting for it to be back in stock =(
  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,674
    Status changed from "Sold Out" to "Out of stock, expected ship date 8 Mar 2014 "
  • mathewmathew Member Posts: 2,098
    Don't worry, it will be out for at least a year. No way they would release a set and then discontinue it 30 days later.
  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,674
    ^ I hope you are right,,, just went back to Sold Out again

    ^^ ~cough~ #41999 ~cough~ now that they seem to have speeded up the reviews and even with just three a year not four I can see some of these becoming very short runs.
  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,674
    #4199 was expected being a LE, the one that surprised me last year was #21050
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    True but it was limited to 20,000. They've publicly stated that cuusso are start with 10,000 and then go from there. That said it's 'available now' on the UK.
