The Colosseum is the largest official LEGO set ever made for brick pros

Rome was not built in a day, but even to assemble the new Lego Creator set depicting the Colosseum it could take some time: it is in fact the largest kit ever made with 9,036 bricks.

Available online and in Lego stores from November 27 (on the occasion of Black Friday 2020), the reproduction of the symbol of Rome beats, in complexity, the primacy held so far by the Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon. To assemble the renowned Star Wars spaceship, 7,541 pieces are needed, but the Eternal City is keen to be second to none and the Colosseum in scale breaks the record of nine thousand bricks.

The author of the work, the LEGO designer Rok Zgalin Kobe, has chosen to reproduce the Colosseum as faithful as possible to the original
With its 27 centimeters in height, 52 in width and 59 in depth, the brick construction perfectly reproduces the architecture of the original Roman amphitheater, starting with the three orders of Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columns.

Everything rests on an oval base that allows you to admire it from every perspective. Obviously, like the other Lego sets in the Creator Expert series, it is a set aimed at a predominantly adult audience, also given the gargantuan number of bricks to nonetheless money. But admit it, it would look great in your living room or elegant office.
