Back in 2017 the Star Wars Millennium Falcon Lego set came in at an eye-watering 7,541 pieces, and was at the time the biggest set the company had ever produced. Now all that has changed, with the release of the epic Roman Colosseum set. At 9,036 pieces, this is the biggest ever Lego set (as of November 2020) and you can get yours now for $549.99.
This sublime reconstruction of the ancient wonder details both the iconic arches of the ruin's three tiers, and inside the remains of the arena floor. Aimed at Lego builders with a little more construction experience, this is the perfect gift for history lovers or travel fans with an eye for detail and of course plenty of patience!
Lego Colosseum (9,036 pieces): $549.99 at Lego.com
Once it was the largest amphitheater in the world, now it's the largest Lego set ever. Take on the biggest ever Lego challenge – an epic 9,036 piece project that can now be yours for $549.99.
The Lego colosseum set is aimed at those aged 18 and over, and according to Lego comes with "coffee-table-style building instructions". Despite the heft and size of this construction project (10.5” (27cm) high, 20.5” (52cm) wide and 23.5” (59cm) deep), Lego also claims the finished model will be easy to pick up, move and put on proud display!
