A Lego Creator Expert set featuring the Apollo 11 lunar lander designed in collaboration with NASA: 1,087 pieces complete with separate ascent and descent stages, and a lunar surface with footprints.

Stanley Kubrick minifig not included (but that would have been hilarious, in fairness)

Available next month (the 50th anniversary of the actual moon landing) for €94.99.

Of course astronauts landed on the moon, silly, but that’s not to say there’s no fun to be had imagining the whole thing was faked on a sound stage by Stanley Kubrick back in 1969.

Which is what French director Fabrice Mathieu does here with an elegant mashup of Apollo 11 prelaunch footage, Kubrick interviews and film clips.

Seriously though…
