LEGO has gone all out with its latest creation, a replica of the infamous RMS Titanic. 120 years since the British passenger liner hit an iceberg and sank, LEGO is reviving the Titanic as an authentic 1:200 scale replica. Officially the largest LEGO set ever released at 53 inches long, this model includes 9,090 pieces.
While it doesn’t have as many bricks as the 11,695-piece Lego Art World Map, LEGO’s Titanic is an impressive model with a number of moving parts that certainly makes for an interesting build.
Recommended for those over 18 years old, this model is a detailed recreation of the Titanic divided into three sections so you can see the ship in action. You can spin the propeller to watch the piston engine rotate inward while admiring the grand staircase, boiler room, smoking room, etc.
The ship’s deck has a promenade, swimming pool, lifeboat, mobile crane and an anchor that can be raised and tensioned between the masts.
Mike Psiaki, master designer of the LEGO Group commented: “At its launch, Titanic was the pinnacle of marine engineering, the largest vehicle ever created. It has been an incredible journey to recreate this iconic ship from LEGO bricks, using blueprints created over a century ago.”
“The LEGO Titanic design’s focus on detail and scale and precision has allowed us to create one of the most challenging building experiences to date. We know brickmakers and ship enthusiasts of all ages will love building the set and displaying it in their homes.”
This is another incredible model from LEGO and is sure to please fans of the James Cameron movie Titanic ship. Owning this car model is your opportunity to become “King of the World!”
You can pre-order your own Titanic now, with the model expected to be available from November 8 for $629.99.
