Lego is well and truly throwing everything at the space category this year. Its City, Creator, Technic and even Friends ranges all have dedicated ‘space’ sub-ranges and, if you’re someone who loves space as much as Lego, it’s fantastic news. We’re loving the emphasis on the stars, planets and space exploration — and one of our favorite sets so far has to be this Lego Creator 3-in-1 Space Astronaut.

Buildable into a dog, a rocket or an astronaut, this is a set aimed at children but one that’s going to be absolutely loved by adult space buffs. Its 9+ age rating means its instructions are on the simpler side but when the finished result is something so fun-loving and brilliantly designed, it’s hard to care too much. 

As nice as the secondary builds may be, it’s the astronaut who is the star of the show, and so this is the build we’ll be focusing on in the course of this review.
