The Top 30 Biggest LEGO Sets Ever

The biggest LEGO builds in 2021

Ever wondered what the largest LEGO sets were? Well, wonder no longer as we take a look at the 30 biggest LEGO sets ever created that will keep your creativity flowing for hours on end.

This is the most up to date list on the web, containing all the 2021 entries (so far) including the new Titanic set; the Camp Nou – FC Barcelona stadium and the latest LEGO Art sets.

The LEGO brick has helped fuel imaginations worldwide with bigger and better sets released every year. Back in January 1958, when the LEGO brick we know and love today was perfected, sets consisted of just 100 pieces. The 1958 LEGO church was the largest set at 149 pieces(!)

Over the years the numerous ways these lovable studded bricks can be stacked together in different configurations has produced countless sets and memories. With many builders still enjoying LEGO as adults (AFOL) we've seen larger and maturer sets become much more common.

Join us as we take a look at the top 30 biggest commercially released LEGO sets of all time. With entries from Spider-Man, Ghostbusters, Harry Potter, Disney and Star Wars, how many do you have in your collection? And, more importantly, how many do you want in your collection?

  • pieces: 11,695
  • minifigures: 0
  • Availability: Out now

The new LEGO Art World Map is the largest individual LEGO set ever made. It contains a whopping 11,695 pieces - that's 2,605 more pieces than the Titanic in second place and 4,154 more pieces than the Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon.

The world map costs a reasonable $249.99 / £229.99 / 249.99€, which means the price per part is around 2 cents/per brick - albeit almost all of them are single studs.

  • pieces: 9,036
  • minifigures: 0
  • Availability: Out now

The LEGO Architect Colosseum contains 9,036 pieces making it the third largest set on our list, and the largest LEGO architecture set.

Designed to mimic the incredible architecture of the original Roman amphitheatre, the completed model is over 10.5 inches (27cm) high, 20.5 inches (52cm) wide, and 23.5 inches (59cm) deep. You're going to need a large cabinet to display this masterpiece!

Every detail of the model amphitheatre stays true to the real-life Colosseum – including having 80 ‘ribs’ in the spectator stands and the three different shades of brick to replicate the different columns and ageing of the Roman landmark. The Colosseum build experience matches the same process as the original, with the modern “wooden” arena being the last part to be placed on the LEGO model, as it was in real-life back in the 1990s.

The Colosseum is the ultimate build for fans of LEGO, Roman Architecture and/or bargin hunters costing $549.99 / £449.99 / 487.39€.

To summarise, the LEGO Millenium Falcon is a ginormous and brilliant set that will take you around 24 hours to build. So prepare for it to take several days, but know you'll have a lot of fun doing it.

The Ultimate Battle for Chima & LEGO City Giant Packs

Img

A honourable mention goes to the Ultimate Battle for CHIMA - which is technically the second largest LEGO set ever created - but it was never sold commercially. The 10,004 piece set was given away as the grand prize for a Legends of Chima competition in the July 2015 issue of LEGO Club Magazine and a smaller LEGO City set containing 5268 pieces was given away shortly afterward. These sets contained lots of smaller pre-existing sets, so it's still possible to gain the same collection commercially - just without the big box.

That completes our look at the biggest LEGO sets. As you may have noticed, the number of larger sets has increased in recent years. Which set is your favourite?
