This set is of one of the tiny figures that comes with it. Not totally like the real figure but correct scale.

Third stage. Bottom two pics show how the fairing opens up for the lander to appear inside.

Of course we can all drool over ( and hope for ) other lego additions to the Lego Saturn: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a88109ec-9970-4fe1-98b4-9bd535856ab4

Bad News

Dispite support of 10000 fans, Lego has the "Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower" Not Approved.

Here LEGO statement on matter:
Quote
Review Results for NASA Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower
Our team has thoroughly considered the possibility of releasing this project as a LEGO set according to the criteria of the LEGO Review. Unfortunately the LEGO Review Board has decided that we will not produce this project as a set.

Thank you to whatsuptoday for the passion and creativity that went into this project, and to all of you who voted so that we would have the opportunity to consider this as a potential LEGO set. We’re sorry to deliver this disappointing news.

How do we arrive at our decisions?
By gaining 10,000 supporters, a fan-submitted project moves from the Idea Stage to the Review Stage, where it earns the opportunity to be considered as a future LEGO® set in a process called the “LEGO Review.” Gaining 10,000 Supporters is just the first step in this process.

A "LEGO Review Board" composed of professional set designers, product managers, marketing representatives, and other key team members examine each qualified project. They build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product; including factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product, including those developed internally, goes through a similar process and must meet the same standards.

The amount of time this takes varies due to all the factors involved. Unfortunately, this process sometimes means that well-conceived projects that gain just-as-passionate followings have to be turned down. Please note that the LEGO Review Board makes all final decisions on which new sets the LEGO Group will release based on LEGO Ideas projects.

It should be possible to build a LEGO launch tower with standard bricks. I thought that was the point of LEGO  :P

It is possible to do that. IIRC the designers of the tower have released a list of parts you can plug into e.g. BrickLink to buy the parts.
