One of the most famous ships of all-time, the RMS Titanic is getting the Lego treatment that just may live up to the original.
The authentic LEGO Titanic replica set will be one of the longest and largest LEGO models ever in the company’s history, made up of a whopping 9,090 pieces that should keep brick builders busy for a while.
In addition to its unrivaled size, RMS Titanic was known for its grandeur which LEGO sought to faithfully capture with the set. Beneath the unmistakable exterior, the set includes interior rooms such as the First-Class grand staircase, which spans six decks, and the Jacobean-style dining saloon located on the ship’s D deck. In the lower decks, fans will also find a replica of the state-of-the-art engine room.
“At the time of its launch the Titanic was the pinnacle of nautical engineering, the largest moving vehicle ever created. It has been an incredible journey to recreate this iconic vessel from LEGO bricks, using blueprints created over a century ago,” says Mike Psiaki, design master at the LEGO Group.
At over 1.3 meters long, the LEGO Titanic set will come with a unique plaque with the ship’s name and display stand.
“Designing the LEGO Titanic with such a focus on immense detail and scale, but also accuracy, has allowed us to create one of the most challenging building experiences to date. We know brick builders and ship enthusiasts of all ages will love building the set and displaying it in their homes,” adds Psiaki.
The set is expected to retail at $629.99 and will be available for purchase November 1st. But you better hurry. If LEGO’s Maersk Triple-E set is any indication, the Titanic set is likely to sell out quick.
