The largest LEGO Ideas sets ever made – January 2022

LEGO Ideas is home to a selection of huge, fan-inspired models and the newly revealed 21332 The Globe has been added to that list.

21332 The Globe has been revealed with a notable piece count that puts it into the list of the largest LEGO Ideas sets ever made, sitting alongside other big builds including 21330 Home Alone, but only one can be the largest LEGO Ideas model ever made.

From musical recreations to nostalgic revisits to a long-retired theme, here are the five biggest sets from LEGO Ideas so far:

5 – 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay

21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay is now retired, though was a popular LEGO Ideas set when it was available. The 2,545-piece model was frequently out of stock on the official online store and any restocks would quickly sell out.

The build continues the tales of Captain Redbeard and the crew of the Black Seas Barracuda after they were shipwrecked on a deserted island and updates the many minifigures with modern detailing while referencing the original 6285 Black Seas Barracuda from 1989.

4 – 21332 The Globe

The huge model will allow you to plan your next trip with an intricate recreation of the world and features glowing labels to help educate any aspiring travellers too.

3 – 21318 Tree House

21318 Tree House weighs in at 3,036 pieces with a selection of that total being made from real plants as part of the LEGO Group’s commitment to sustainability.

The natural build includes a home sitting in the branches of a large brick-built tree with the amenities you might expect from one on the ground. A staircase allows the minifigure family to ascend to the top of the model while a crane hoists their luggage up.

2 – 21323 Grand Piano

Before the reveal of LEGO Ideas 21332 The Globe and 21331 Sonic the Hedgehog – Green Hill Zone, 21330 Home Alone was released in time for the 2021 holiday season with 3,955 pieces, by far the most of any LEGO Ideas set to date.

Such a huge total was all but necessary for transforming the iconic home into bricks with an interior packed with references to the film as well as side builds for the Wet Bandits’ Van and the tree house.
