I recently bought a copy of Great LEGO Sets - A Visual History, a very nicely produced coffee-table book of the history of lego from the early days until 2014 or so. It's chock-full of pictures of a selection of what Lego fans and designers consider to be the pick of the sets over the years, including the Space Lego LL928 Galaxy Explorer - as I posted about recently, I found my one of these not long ago and rebuilt it.

If you buy the slipcase version of the book, not only do you get a very nice picture of the Galaxy Explorer kit on the case, but there's an extra treat - a mini Galaxy Explorer. Yes, Lego have done a kit of one of their kits.

It's a very nice looking little model, too.

Lego Spaceships, plural )

As an aside, I noticed one area where the new mini kit is not only different from the original, but arguably slightly better-designed than it. Anyone spot it?
