OTONA NO CHOGOKIN - Apollo 13 & Saturn V Launch Vehicle
OTONA NO CHOGOKIN - Apollo 13 & Saturn V Launch Vehicle by Bandai. Due in August 2013 for $569.99.
While the Apollo 13 never made its intended lunar landing the entire crew managed to return safely to Earth in what was one of the most harrowing and heroic manned missions in space program history. This inspirational story of bravery and human ingenuity can be relived through the OTONA NO CHOGOKIN Apollo 13 & Saturn V Launch Vehicle set. Employing diecast material and rendered in exquisite detail, this historical collector’s piece features Service Module internal mechanics replicated using actual schematics to show how the module looked without the Sector-4 panel. The Saturn V launch vehicle can be disconnected to show each stage. Also included is a special display stand and accessory parts that can be used to recreate the successful Command Module splashdown and rescue scene.
This awe-inspiring set includes:
- Apollo 13 and Saturn V rockets (S-IC 1st stage, S-II 2nd stage
- S-IVB 3rd stage,
- S-II Aft Interstage,
- S-IVB Aft Interstage),

Does anyone understand why these things cost so much? I've seen plenty enough toys of spacecraft in stores for about $20.
