You heard it is coming and now it is official. We are talking about the first collectible LEGO building set based on RMS Titanic. While the LEGO 10294 Titanic’s 9,090 pieces beat LEGO Colosseum by just 54 pieces, it is technically not the biggest LEGO set.
That accolade goes to the LEGO Art World Map which has a mind-bending 11,695 pieces. Then again, the 31203 isn’t quite a building set. So, as far as building sets go, the LEGO 10294 Titanic is the biggest to date.
When completed, it is one of the longest and largest LEGO models up to this point. Stretching over 53 inches (135 cm) long, 6 inches (16 cm) wide, and towering at 17.5 inches (44 cm!) high, the sheer size befits the grandeur of the ill-fated cruise ship from 110 years ago.
The set is not designed out of imagination, btw; it is designed with reference to the blueprints of the actual ship and hence, the authentic looks and details.
That said, along with the sheer size comes an insane amount of details, including several interior rooms, the First-Class grand staircase which spans six decks, the Jacobean-style dining saloon on the ship’s D deck, and a replica of the then state-of-the-art engine room at the lower decks.
Speaking of the engine room, it includes a ship engine with moving piston engines that turn inside as you rotate the propellers.
The set is divided into three sections, showcasing the impressively detailed interiors. Plus, it boasts working details like an anchor that can be lowered and raised as well as adjustable tension lines between the masts.
Along with its colossal size, there is also a colossal price tag. The LEGO 10294 Titanic, which will be available on November 8th, costs a whopping US$629.99. It will be available for pre-order from November 1st.
Fun fact: while this is an official LEGO Titanic set, it is certainly not the only LEGO Titanic creations we have seen; previously we have seen an 11,000-piece creation by Brick Builder and a mind-blowing 120,000-piece that details the final moment of the unsinkable cruise liner.
