The RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner operated by the White Star Line whose has inspired a myriad of books, movies, television series and now the longest LEGO set ever made.
The LEGO Titanic (10294) actually measures 135cm from bow to stern which is already 25cm more than the LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer (75252) which measures only 110cm in length.
The scale of this LEGO Titanic model is 1:200 and it is packed with a tonne of details like a micro-scale replica of the First class grand staircase, dining saloon and engine room.
I’m also happy to report that there are no stickers in this set as all the graphics are printed including the flags. There is also a buildable plaque with the letters “TITANIC” printed on individual 2×2 round tiles.
The interesting bit about the build is that it is constructed in modules when separated, allows of viewing the cross sections at different points along the length of the ship.
I think the metric of piece count for “The Largest LEGO Set” is a little outdated so I’ll just use the term, “set with the highest piece count” from here on out.
It is the second set in LEGO’s repertoire with the highest number of pieces which stands at 9090, just 54 pieces more than the LEGO Colosseum (10276). The set with the highest number of pieces still belongs to the LEGO World Map with 11,695 pieces.
The LEGO Titanic will be available for pre-order on November 1st and will be on sale on the 8th of November at all LEGO Brand and Certified Stores.
It will also have a recommended retail price of SGD899.90 / €629.99 / USD$629.99 / £535.69 which makes this one of the most expensive LEGO sets ever produced.
I’m a huge fan of the construction marvel that is the Titanic and I would love to get one but the price point is inherently prohibitive, not to mention the amount of space I need to set aside to display the whole model.

Mike Psiaki, design master at the LEGO Group commented: “At the time of its launch the Titanic was the pinnacle of nautical engineering, the largest moving vehicle ever created. It has been an incredible journey to recreate this iconic vessel from LEGO bricks, using blueprints created over a century ago.
