LEGO Mars Curiosity Rover back in stock!

The very popular and long sold out LEGO CUUSOO set the #21104 LEGO NASA Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover is now back in stock at the Online LEGO Shop! This set was released in January of this year, but sold out so fast a lot of LEGO fans who wanted it weren’t able to get one. So now is your second chance! 🙂

#21104 LEGO Mars Curiosity

As far as LEGO CUUSOO sets go, I would say that this is one of the best, and most functional one. It was designed by real Curiosity Rover engineer Stephen Pakbaz, and features a 6-wheel rocker-bogie suspension, articulated robotic arm and multiple camera sets. The model also comes with a high-quality booklet with building instructions and information about the history of Mars exploration and the Curiosity Rover, plus a display plate complete with LEGO brick Martian rocks – perfect for testing out the rover’s go-anywhere suspension. The Rover measures over 3” (10cm) high, 5” (15cm) long and 4” (12cm) wide, and the robotic arm extends over 2” (7cm). A really nice set indeed! 😀

#21104 LEGO Mars Curiosity Details

You can read more about the LEGO Curiosity Rover and its interesting history and details in our previous post; LEGO Mars Curiosity Rover Coming Soon! Also, check out the video below where Chad Collins from Your Creative Friends interviews Stephen about his LEGO Curiosity Rover design. Stephen also talks about working on the real Curiosity Rover, and shows off his LEGO studio with many more interesting LEGO models.

As I have mentioned, the LEGO Mars Curiosity Rover is available again at the Online LEGO Shop, so if you are interested in this set I would suggest you get it before it sells out again.


What do you think? How do you like the LEGO Mars Curiosity Rover? Are you one of the fortunate few who has the set already? How do you like the suspension system and other details? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉

    I think I’m going to get this, but I might get one of the TLM 2 in 1’s. Any thoughts? 😛

      They are quite different sets so it is not like comparing apples to apples. I guess it just depends on what you like better; sets that have a lot of option and play value (TLM), or sets that are more scientific and accurate to real life (MCR). 🙂

    UPDATE: This is just an update on the transfer of our server. If you see this note, you are already connecting to the new server so you can be assured that your comments are not going to disappear.

    It may take around 24 hours for everyone’s computer to switch over to the new server. The website will still be visible and functional on the old server until Saturday, however if you leave a comment there it will not be saved. Again, if you see this note, there is nothing to worry about as you are already on the new site. 😉

      So how come all my comments from today and almost everyone else’s from today are not showing up? 😕

      • admin March 27, 2014, 8:33 PM

        There are two comments missing from you. You have written both of them on the old server. The switch happened right after that. We are actually missing only three comments; two from you, and one from Miro.

        • BLProductions March 27, 2014, 9:39 PM

          Will they show up when the switch is fully completed for everyone? Or are they “lost”? 😐

          • admin March 27, 2014, 9:50 PM

            Those three comments are lost. Although if you really-really want I can put them back in as I have a copy of them in my email. In one of them you just asked about how long the transfer takes, and in the other you mentioned that you really wanted this set. 😉

    It’s sold out again.

      Yeah, didn’t last long… and for a good reason… this is one great set. BTW, you may consider calling LEGO as they may still have some in stock. Sometimes I had luck doing that. When the stock gets really low they will take them off from the Online Shop, but if you call in they could still fulfill your order. Just a suggestion. 😉
