The biggest LEGO sets of all time – October 2021

The LEGO Group is continuing to push the boundaries for its biggest sets ever released, with another Titanic update to the list needed in October 2021.

With the reveal of LEGO for Adults 10294 Titanic, it’s time to update our list for the biggest LEGO sets ever released to acknowledge the latest set in the theme, considering its enormous size and piece count, which easily slots it into one of the top spots.

From fictional worlds of magic and martial arts to historical monuments, here are the seven largest LEGO models of all time, in order of piece count ascending.

7 – NINJAGO 71741 NINJAGO City Gardens

71741 NINJAGO City Gardens is the biggest NINJAGO set to ever release, featuring a varied cast of minifigures and a perfect build to complete the other NINJAGO City creations. You can read our review to find out more about the secrets and references that are hidden within.

Moving on from a world of dragons, elemental powers and skyline-littered landscapes, the next biggest build in the list transports us to a land comparatively grounded in reality with 10256 Taj Mahal recreating the Indian wonder of the world.

Originally released as 10189 Taj Mahal, this model was a mainstay in the LEGO Group’s catalogue for some time before eventually retiring in December 2020. Whilst it may currently live in 21056 Taj Mahal, the larger version will always be remembered as the huge set it was with 5,923 elements.

5 – Harry Potter 71043 Hogwarts Castle

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is full of magical locations made iconic thanks to the popular movies, books and other media based on the franchise. As such, an enormous brick-built version of Hogwarts Castle, the home of the school of witchcraft and wizardry was all but inevitable.

With 6,020 pieces, the castle recreation is built using microscale with four exclusive minifigures and plenty of miniature models to recreates scenes from the movies. LEGO Harry Potter 71043 Hogwarts Castle is available now from the official online store.

4 – Star Wars 75192 Millennium Falcon

From a school of magic to a galaxy far, far away, the next biggest LEGO set is from the ever-expanding Star Wars theme in 75192 Millennium Falcon. Like 10189 Taj Mahal, this set was similarly rereleased but with an updated design that made use of a new portfolio of parts.

Featuring minifigures for both the original and sequel trilogies of the franchise, LEGO Star Wars 75192 Millennium Falcon has been available to buy on the official online store since 2017, and won’t be retiring for a while.

After being dethroned as the largest LEGO set ever released in 2021 following the launch of 31203 World Map, LEGO for Adults 10276 Colosseum is now the third biggest model, despite its 9,036 included bricks.

LEGO for Adults 10276 Colosseum is dedicated to capturing the historic beauty of the iconic amphitheatre in Rome and we’ve got an in-depth review to guide you through it, without the threat of miniature gladiatorial combat.

2 – LEGO For Adults 10294 Titanic

Crowning itself as the second-largest build ever designed following its recent reveal, LEGO For Adults 10294 Titanic is arguably the biggest set ever aside from piece count. At a total of 9,090 bricks, 10294 Titanic recaptures the beauty of the engineering icon as it was originally intended before its ill-fated maiden voyage.

LEGO for Adults 10294 Titanic was designed with accuracy in mind as stated by LEGO Design Master Mike Psiaki in our initial report, and that can be seen throughout the build with a detailed interior built across the separating sections of the model.

1 – Art 31203 World Map

Rounding out the list is LEGO Art 31203 World Map, a model that has yet to be dethroned as the biggest set of all time in terms of piece count.

Weighing in at 11,695 bricks, the huge LEGO Art set towers above the rest when it comes to included pieces, thanks mostly to the designs of the theme using thousands of one-stud tiles. You can read Brick Fanatics’ review to find out more about 31203 World Map – which is available now on
