The second-ever LEGO CUUSOO set, originally developed in Japan is now available at the Online LEGO Shop! It is really hard to find it on LEGO’s website, so here is the direct link: #21101 LEGO Hayabusa
And here is the official description of the LEGO Hayabusa: Build and display the first unmanned asteroid explorer! Recreate Hayabusa, a modern marvel, selected by LEGO CUUSOO members of Japan!
Create a detailed display version of the technology that changed scientific history! In a 2003 mission, this Japanese spacecraft went deep into space to successfully collect asteroid samples and return them safely to Earth – without a single person on board! Selected by more than 1,000 LEGO CUUSOO members from Japan as the most-demanded model, this build features cool solar panels, moving equipment, a satellite-dish and gold elements. Includes a display stand with name labels, minifigure and detailed history booklet.
- Features minifigure, baseplate with display stand and name label
- Details include rare solar panel design, satellite dish and gold elements
- Recreate the first unmanned asteroid explorer!
- Build the model that more than 1,000 LEGO CUUSOO members requested!
The LEGO CUUSOO Hayabusa has been requested by many LEGO-fans outside of Japan, but previously you were only able to get it for crazy prices on eBay. Now it is available at the LEGO Shop for only $49.99, so get it while you can. I’m also thinking this will be a great set to keep for re-sale as it is extremely rare and likely not many copies are made. 8)
