What an incredible looking set!

Apparently there'll be a limited VIP exclusive probe as well, according to Brickset:
"In addition, VIPs will be able to purchase an exclusive item with their points; an Ulysses Space Probe, available for 1,800 VIP Points, which the Space Shuttle Discovery also deployed in 1990 on a mission to scan the Sun. Limited stocks available."

So much want for this.  A few months back I was working through my pieces for KingsKnight Shuttle on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-46228/KingsKnight/space-shuttle-1110-scale/#details, but read a rumour there would be an official set released lated in the year, so held off, and here it is.

They've done a fantastic job with this.  No doubt some talented individual will have the SRBs and ET moc'd up shortly.

Tempted to flog my Tantive IV for this... decisions... decisions.

Yeah I'd love to see what people come up with for the SRB/ET.
Building a launch tower for the Saturn V is on my very-long-term to-do list!

Will definitely have to build the SRBS and external tank to go with it, going to be an expensive project.

Unfortunately the Ulysses probe that was supposed to launch (pun intended) tonight alongside the shuttle has been delayed, apparently supply issues let to only 300 being available for the European market.

Ordered my Space Shuttle the day it was released, it was delivered last Friday.

From past experience I think this is a set that will go on back order real fast.

So mine is sitting waiting to be built.  Could be a project across a couple of evenings this week.

Timelapse to follow at some, point.
Last Project: 42083 Bugatti Chrion

Mine's a birthday present so it has to sit in the box for another couple of weeks, desperately trying to avoid looking at reviews and videos and stuff in the meantime!

Creator sets are SOLID, I love the intricacies of Tecnics, but Creator are just so damn heavy!

Two evenings worth of building at a fairly leisurely pace.

Super video Grant. I take it were the satellite panels stickers? Didn't see the frame where they were added!

Satellite panels are a foil element - https://brickset.com/parts/6342963/punching-foil-sheet-no-43

There's actually very few stickers in the set.  Main ones being silver foil for inside the cargo bay doors for the "radiators" and a couple of "Discovery" ones around the cockpit.  Oh, and the description ones for the display boards.
