But it wasn't until nearly forty-five years later that this specific depiction of the historical event was created... with LEGO® bricks!
Yes sir-y, that's right! This build is supposedly a representation of the placing of the US flag on the moon. I think I got it pretty close, though, none of the terrain surrounding the flag and/or the Classic Space astronaut is most likely accurate. Perhaps, if I ever do another one, my next moon landing brick-built composition could be a replication of one of the photos taken on that space expedition.
Now, without further ado, on with the pictures!
DISCLAIMER: To answer the inevitable question... No, that LEGO® Earth in the background of the photos was not originally created by me. All I did was print it off of Google Images. All credit and rights to their respective owners.
