10276 Colosseum could be outmatched by 31203 World Map

10276 Colosseum might soon lose its place as the biggest LEGO set out there, with the arrival of 31203 World Map.

According to Stone Wars, the LEGO Art mosaic of a world map is set to break the world record for largest LEGO set ever, coming in at an estimated 11695 parts. 31203 World Map is largely made up of 1×1 round tiles in different colours, as well as 40 16×16 Technic base plates and a few other assorted parts to give the mosaic structure and stability.

Within 31203 World Map, white tiles are used for the landmasses, while the oceans are made up of a mixture of turquoise and green tones. The ocean areas also show depth, so yellow and red tones will also be used to differentiate between the deep oceans and shallower seas.

For LEGO fans all over the world, the world map can be built in different ways, placing different continents in the centre. Anyone who has seen maps made in different countries knows that each continent has a tendency to put itself in the centre. LEGO builders will be able to do the same with their own creations, much like the alternate instructions for LEGO Art 31201 Harry Potter Hogwarts Crests.

Unfortunately, there are no images of what 31203 World Map might look like yet, but we’ll be sure to share them with you as soon as they are available. The set is due for release in August this year, but for now, there are plenty of other LEGO Art sets to get stuck into.
