Go behind the scenes of LEGO Creator Expert 10276 Colosseum

The LEGO Group has released a designer video for the largest LEGO set ever, Creator Expert 10276 Colosseum.

The company lifted the lid on the 9,036-piece model yesterday. And it instantly usurped 75192 Millennium Falcon for the title of the biggest LEGO set ever, by a margin of almost 1,500 pieces.

You can read our in-depth review of 10276 Colosseum here. But if you want to go behind the scenes with its designer, Rok Zgalin Kobe, check out this video from the LEGO YouTube channel.

“There are a lot of challenges in building a set this big,” Rok explains. “First of all, it has to stand when you lift it up. So the way it’s designed is that it has a very strong base, but the superstructure is only connected on a few points, so it’s a bit like modern bridge building. When you pick it up by the base, it allows the rest of the model to flex on top of it, which means that it doesn’t exude the forces so that it would crack.”

10276 Colosseum launches on Black Friday for £449.99 / €499.99 EUR / $549.99 USD. If you buy the set during that first weekend, you’ll get a free exclusive Roman Chariot model.

That’s not the only deal that will be available for Black Friday. Any order totalling £150 / $150 will also get 40410 Charles Dickens Tribute for free. Meanwhile, any order totalling £40 or more will get a free Holiday Tree set. There’ll even be the chance to win 1,000,000 VIP points.

All of the deals will run from November 27, while stock lasts.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @chriswharfe.
