Biggest lego set part 1

(Comments)

Ever wondered what the largest LEGO sets were? We take a look at the 30 LEGO sets that will keep your creativity flowing for hours on end.

The LEGO brick is a wonderful invention that has helped fuel imaginations worldwide. Back in January 1958, when the LEGO brick we know and love today was perfected, sets consisted of just 100 pieces. The 1958 LEGO church was the largest set at 149 pieces(!)

But over the years the numerous ways these lovable studded bricks can be stacked together in different configurations has produced countless sets and memories. With many builders still enjoying LEGO as adults (AFOL) larger and maturer sets have become much more common.

With the release of the impressive new LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon in 2017 we felt it was worth taking a look at the top 30 largest commercially released LEGO sets of all time, and since that set was released we've been keeping this list up to date. With entries from Batman, Ghostbusters, Harry Potter, Disney and Star Wars, how many do you have in your collection?

Last updated: September 2020

This is the most up to date list on the web, containing all the 2020 entries (so far). Enjoy, share and please join us on Facebook!!

LEGO's 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon contains 7541 pieces, setting the record for the largest individual LEGO set ever made (so far).

As the biggest set on the list the new UCS Millennium Falcon comes in an impressive box and contains a greater level of external detail than any Millennium Falcon set ever has before, as well as several interior sections such as the main hold, the rear compartment, the top gunnery station and the cockpit.

You can configure the model to both old and new Star Wars styles and pilot the ship with the most age appropriate Han Solo fit for the task.

This ginormous set costs US $799.99 / £649.99 / 799.99€ and will take around 24 hours to build. This seems like a lot of money, but if you're a collector you will notice from the discontinued sets below that these sets eventually sell for a serious premium.
