Unveiled today as the LEGO Group’s latest ambitious set from the theme formerly known as Creator Expert, 10294 Titanic is among the company’s largest products to date in almost every sense of the word: by piece count (9,090), by length (135cm), and by the amount of money you’ll need to part with to pick it up (£569.99 / $629.99 / €629.99).
It’s also packed with details both inside and out, as you’ll see by browsing the extensive image gallery below. From these images, it looks like the model builds in sections that then clip together – which may also allow it to have the unfortunate side effect of easily breaking in half, just as the real-life ship did on its ill-fated maiden voyage in 1912.
The set also includes a unique display plaque bearing the ship’s name, although it’s absent of any statistics or historic information – the sort we typically see with sets like Star Wars’ Ultimate Collector Series, 76139 1989 Batmobile and 76240 Batmobile Tumbler.
10294 Titanic will launch at LEGO.com and in LEGO Stores on November 8, but you’ll be able to pre-order it from November 1. Click here to learn more about the set, and hear from LEGO Design Master Mike Psiaki.
- 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.
