Lego Exo-Suit

Hi Everyone! Today we have the Lego Exo-Suit. This is a Lego Ideas set designed by Peter Reid. The set features some awesome parts and a great design. The instruction manual has some neat details and a cool story in it. Lego Ideas is a online community where you can submit your design or creation, the design then has to acquire support in order to be brought to the final stage which is the review stage where Lego designers review a number of products and choose the best one. The next place where the wining product goes is the production line! The design then becomes a set!
This is the refueling station. The astronaut here is named Yve.
This is a "Turtle" with some pretty mean looking cannons on his back. 
This brick separator came with the set.
This is a neat design on the leg of the suit. 
Here is the whole leg and foot of the suit.
Here you can see the communications equipment. And a part of the cockpit.
Here is the back of the suit. 
This is the hand of the suit.
And this is the cockpit of the suit. The astronaut in the suit is named Pete which fits the set!
Thanks for reading!
