A historical marvel has taken the title of biggest ever LEGO set and it’s coming in time for Christmas – the latest 18+ release is 10276 Colosseum.
The latest LEGO set to be revealed is upping the ante, with 10276 Colosseum using 9,036 pieces to recreate the famous historical site in Rome, Italy. You read that right – 9,036.
Built in a similar style to LEGO Architecture sets, but much, much, much bigger, the model is absolutely huge and measures 27cm high, 52cm wide and 59cm deep. Care and attention to detail has been paid to the actual structure to replicate it as a LEGO model.

LEGO Designer Rok Zgalin Kobe said: “One of the biggest challenges and one of the most important things was to convey the Colosseum’s monumentality in the LEGO form. I felt that the LEGO model should display a special architectural feature of the original – the rows of columns flanking the arches in different styles. To achieve that, the model is constructed using an effect of vertical exaggeration. The cross-section is therefore far steeper than on the real structure. Hopefully, people will be inspired to learn more about the original through the experience of building the LEGO model.”
