As much of a Lego expert you think you are, even your capabilities (and patience) will be tested with the latest set. At the time of its voyage in 1912, Titanic was one of the largest and most famous ships — and it received a new wave of publicity with the release of the 1997 film. All these years later, the shipwreck is still making headlines, except this time, it involves a new Lego set. All these years later, the shipwreck is still making headlines, except this time, it involves a new Lego set.
The Titanic model now holds the record as the largest Lego set ever created, as it measures in at 54 inches long (just over 4.5 feet). As you’d expect, you need many, many pieces in order to claim that kind of fame, so prepare to be building this for a while. It takes 9,090 pieces to build this legendary ship at a 1:200 scale.
What really makes the Lego Titanic stunning are the details. It divides into three sections, which means you can showcase its intricate interiors, including the grand staircase and boiler room. The exteriors feature the promenade deck and swimming pool. To make it extra special, this working model allows you to turn the propellers to watch the piston engines turn inside, as well as raise the anchor and adjust the tension line between masts.

The Lego Titanic set will be officially available on Nov. 8, 2021, but you can preorder it beginning on Nov. 1 on the brand’s website for $629.99. Remember to keep in mind that not only do you need a suitable place to build the model, but you also need a spot for a it to live once it’s complete. This isn’t your average Lego creation, after all.

Lego certainly isn’t new to the huge-building-block-creations game. At one time, the Colosseum set held the title for largest Lego set ever, but Titanic just beats it by 54 pieces. To be fair, the World Map includes 11,695 pieces, which is more than the Titanic, but as part of the Art collection, it isn’t made with the classic blocks and instead used push pin-like bits.
If this particular Lego set is a little too time-consuming (read: intimidating), there are plenty of options with fewer pieces for NASA, Star Wars, and sci-fi fans. Building up to the incredible beauty that is Titanic just might be the safer route for some, and there’s no shame in that game.
