21101 Hayabusa is a CUUSOO set based on a Japanese spacecraft released in Japan on March 1, 2012. A limited number of Hayabusa sets will be sold to all 23 countries that Shop@home services sometime this spring, making it the first CUUSOO set to be available internationally. It was the second design to reach 1000 supporters (originally 393 supporters) on the LEGO CUUSOO website, and the next to be made into a set, after 21100 Shinkai 6500. It was originally designed by the user daisuke, before being adapted by LEGO designers.
