Yes, I know it's the end of the day and you've probably seen quite a few moon landing tributes already - but bear with me for a LEGO fix I've seen blogged surprisingly little lately. Back in 2003, LEGO released a set illustrating the first moon landing in minifig form. That model is the bulk of today's scene - a clever "mod" (short for "modification" - LEGO fans refer to sets enhanced with parts from their personal collections as "mods" to set them apart from regular sets or completely original creations) that adds a lunar surface to the set. The kit itself was already a fitting tribute, and a highlight of the short-lived "Discovery" line of LEGO sets, but the landscaping (moonscaping) built by HotToadsToys brings this official kit to life.
