February 2015 Monthly Mini Build: Space Shuttle

If you haven’t already seen it, last night’s LEGO Monthly Mini build was a sweet little space shuttle.

This time, we went to the monthly build with a few friends in tow. The boys had never gone to a LEGO Monthly Mini Build, so I suspect this was a real treat for them.

The Little Brick, however, was more interested in the LEGO Disney Princess Jasmine’s Exotic Palace (41061)  than the actual build. It seems we’ve set a precedent in regards to getting a set each time we go to the LEGO store. We decided to try and break her of it last night. Suffice to say she wasn’t very happy about it.

 

Back to the build though… It was a cute mini build and we enjoyed it a lot.

It did seem to lack a certain polish about it, so we decided to add a few more extra cheese slopes to the wings once we got home. Now it looks “finished”.

Did you go to the mini build last night? How did you like this build?

 

Update 02/25/2015: In case you are looking for the bricks needed to create this set, I took a screenshot of the parts list for the February 2015 Space Shuttle Mini Build off of BrickSet:

Update 3/9/2015: In case you need them, you can download the LEGO February 2015 Space Shuttle Mini Build Instructions here. (I couldn’t find my instructions under the pile of tax documents sitting on my desk, so I found these images at collectSPACE and merged them into one PDF file for easy download.)

  1. Would you be willing to post the different pieces needed to make this adorable shuttle? I sadly wasn’t allowed (23 yrs) to build one for free in store, but I really want to build one on my own!

    1. I completely understand, Alexa! We’re lucky we have The Little Brick so we could enjoy these builds, too.

      If you visit the post again, you’ll see I added a parts list for you. Enjoy!

  2. Can you post an image of the instructions for this, too? This build was a nightmare for us in Virginia. The store only got a handful of the shuttles. The build is supposed to run from 5pm to 7pm, but they were out of shuttles at 5:05pm. There were just tons of us arriving with little boys who couldn’t wait to build the shuttle and … sorry! All gone! I went to the Lego Site to get the instructions, but they weren’t there. Then the next time I went back, they were already ‘archived’! So I wrote to Lego and they said …. sorry! I am so frustrated. We had kids with tears in their eyes and I go on eBay and one seller says he has 30 of them for sale. UGH. Before I enrich someone on eBay who snatched up 30 of these free kits when I drove an hour in traffic and couldn’t get even one, we’re want to try to do it ourselves.

    1. That is so frustrating and I totally feel your pain! The first time we decided to brave a mini build night, we showed up at 5pm just to find out all the spots had been given out. Our local store does tickets with times to return for building and they start handing them out at 4pm. They go quickly and it only took once for us to learn our lesson.

      You should ask your local store if they do something similar.

      In the meantime, I’ve posted the instructions for you at the bottom of the post. :)
