If you’re reading this, you’re probably thinking about adding to your growing collection of LEGO sets after all, the more you have, the more fun you can have putting them together and taking them apart again! But where do you start?
The LEGO Group has released the biggest LEGO sets of all time in its nearly 80-year history—so how can you choose which will be the best, most fun sets? Fortunately, we’ve done some research and found that five LEGO sets stand out from the rest as being among the largest available today. Here they are!
#1 LEGO Millennium Falcon
The LEGO Millennium Falcon set is one of a kind. It’s not just a toy; it’s an art piece. This is a Lego set that any Star Wars fan would proudly display in their home. The price tag is hefty, but you’re getting more than just pieces to build with.
This set comes with seven minifigures and even features a real light-up holographic chessboard! With over 6,000 pieces, it’s no wonder that it was so difficult to put together.
#2 LEGO Star Wars Death Star
LEGO Star Wars Death Star is one of my favourite sets. I’m a huge fan of Star Wars, and I love building with LEGOs. The set is extremely detailed and has several different rooms, including Darth Vader’s chamber, Emperor Palpatine’s chamber, an Imperial conference room, and a docking bay for Luke Skywalker to land his X-Wing.
The coolest part about it is that you can destroy it with a button on top—it even plays music while you do! If you like Star Wars or LEGOs in general, then you will love LEGO Star Wars Death Star. It’s definitely worth every penny!
#3 LEGO Disney Castle
LEGO Castle is filled with princesses, knights, and epic quests – everything a girl (or boy) could want. The LEGO Disney Castle is so big that it doesn’t even fit on some bookshelves! If you’re going to buy one LEGO set for your kid, make it this one.
Of course, we wouldn’t turn down any gift of LEGO bricks either! If you have a LEGO fan in your life, check out our largest LEGO sets in order of all time. They’re sure to delight young builders and are great for beginners.
#4 LEGO Titanic
LEGO Titanic is a set based on one of the most famous ships in history. The kit contains over 3,800 pieces and is designed to be nearly identical to its real-life counterpart. The only difference between LEGO’s version and RMS Titanic is that it can float on water instead of sinking!
The set includes nine Minifigures: Captain Smith, Thomas Andrews, Molly Brown, Bruce Ismay, Henry Wilde, Jack Phillips, Ernest Shackleton (in explorer gear), 2nd Officer Lightoller and a stoker. It also comes with four buildable figures: Benjamin Guggenheim, Lawrence Beesley, Sir Cosmo Duff-Gordon and a stewardess.
#5 LEGO Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal is considered one of the most beautiful buildings in history. In 1732, Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan ordered its construction as a mausoleum for his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. LEGO Taj Mahal is an impressive set with more than 6,000 pieces that features detailed architecture and four minifigures: Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal, plus two builders.
This set was retired after selling out quickly in 2008 but returned to stores in 2018 after popular demand from LEGO fans worldwide.
