Be king of the Lego world with record- piece Titanic set
. It’s the boat of dreams for Lego addicts.
The toy company advertised Thursday its largest Lego model ever of the Titanic, the ill-fated boat that was the largest ever at the time of its doomed maiden crossing.
At pieces, the soon-to-debut Titanic (10294) set is “ one of the most exacting edifice emprises to date,” according to Lego, and just edges out the anterior record holders Lego’s Colosseum, which has pieces, and the- piece Star Wars Millennium Falcon. While monumental for a model, it’s not the Lego set with the most pieces overall, nonetheless. That honor goes to the Lego Art World Map, which includes pieces.
Available on November 8, the set will fetch$ 630 — and it doesn’t include Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet or an cold fish.
But Lego’s Titanic replica, which will be available for pre-order on Nov. 1, emphasizes intricate, authentic details, possibly like no other Lego set before it.
The outside of the keel measures 53 height long, and includes load cranes, swimming pools, lifeboats, malls and multiple sundecks, along with serving keel features matching as working anchors and malleable masts.
It also — ironically enough, given the fate of the keel — breaks apart into three sections, which allows founders to glimpse inside the covering, where they will find multiple beds of passenger cells, the iconic grand staircase, a smoking divan and detailed boiler and machine cells.
“ As well as its sheer size, the Titanic was known for its peerless nobility, which has been faithfully captured in the set,” Lego wrote in a press release. “ Beneath the unmistakable shell of the LEGO Titanic, there are several interior cells to explore including the First- Class grand staircase which spans six sundecks and the Jacobean- style dining cantina which was located on the keel’s D sundeck.
Beyond its “ nobility,” Titanic is still known as one of the top tragedies in history. When it set cruise in April 1912 for New York City from South hampton, England, people including the keel’s crew were aboard. In total, an estimated people were killed when the Titanic hit an cold fish and sank.
Following span will mark 110 spans since that fatal night.
