LEGO Creator Expert 10276 Colosseum is no longer the biggest set of all time

Move over, 10276 Colosseum: there’s a new biggest LEGO set of all time in town, and its name is 31203 World Map.

The LEGO Group has today unveiled the latest addition to its line-up of buildable mosaics, and it rockets past not only the rest of the Art theme in piece count, but the company’s entire portfolio – including 10276 Colosseum, the previous holder of the record for the most elements in a single model.

31203 World Map weighs in at a staggering 11,695 pieces, the vast majority of which are either 1×1 round plates or tiles. That means it may not beat 10276 Colosseum’s 9,036 bricks in sheer volume of plastic, but it certainly does solely on the number of elements in the box.

It’s not the most expensive LEGO set of all time, however, predominantly by dint of just how tiny most of its parts are. In fact, 31203 World Map rings in at just £229.99 / $249.99 / €249.99, which feels like a very good deal on paper – at least next to the smaller LEGO Art sets, which ring in four times smaller for only half the price.

We’ve already painstakingly pieced together 31203 World Map’s nearly-12,000 parts for our in-depth review of the enormous mosaic, which you can dive into right here. For more on the record-breaking model, check out the official announcement and our extensive gallery of images.

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 @brfa_chris.
