Lego Releases Largest Ever Set

Lego has unveiled its biggest set ever: The Colosseum.

Coming in at a massive 9,036 pieces and measuring over 10.5" (27cm) high, 20.5" (52cm) wide and 23.5" (59cm) deep, the brick set overtakes the Millennium Falcon to claim the top spot.

And with not much else to do, it will certainly help you while away a few hours - or days.

But you'll have to have deep pockets if you want to get your hands on the set, because it will set you back the hefty sum of £449.99 ($594).

The official advert on the Lego website says: "Nowhere on Earth compares to the majesty of the Colosseum of Rome. So, get ready to escape your everyday life as you take on the biggest ever Lego build (as at November 2020) yet.

"This epic 9,036-piece Colosseum model depicts each part of the famous structure in great detail. Authentic detailing shows the northern part of the outer wall's facade and its iconic arches.

"The model features 3 storeys, adorned with columns of the Doric, Ionic and Corinthian orders while the attic is decorated with Corinthian pilasters."

The Colosseum is suitable for those 18 years or over and will be available to buy from Friday 27 November.

But if this mammoth set seems a touch too big of a project to tackle, fear not.

For those of you not willing to give up a good portion of your spare time to complete the Italian landmark, there is Baby Yoda.

Lego's brand-new The Child kit will let you create a 7.5 inch Baby Yoda with posable head, ears and mouth. And there are only 1,073 pieces to worry about. Perfect, no?

The sets, which are suitable for Star Wars fans aged 10 and over, cost £69.99 ($90) - you can find out more here.

A description for the item reads: "Turn the cuteness factor up to the max with this Lego Star Wars The Child (75318) build-and-display model.

"Authentic details of this popular character, affectionately known as Baby Yoda, are recreated in Lego style, with posable head, ears and mouth for different expressions, plus the Child's favourite toy - a gearshift knob (element included) - for it to hold just like it does in Star Wars: The Mandalorian."

Or maybe you want a bit more of a challenge, just not the Colosseum kind. If this sounds like you, then there is always the Millennium Falcon, which only has 7,541 pieces.

However, suitable for those aged 16 years or over, the iconic set will set you back even more than the Colosseum, £200 more at £649.99 ($857). So there's that to consider.

Good luck.
