The LEGO Group has just revealed that the Most Famous Ship to ever set sail has been transformed into an authentic replica of the RMS Titanic.
For the first time in LEGO history fans and builders alike can now recreate the luxury liner in full detailed brick form, 110 years since it was originally launched in Belfast in 1911.
The LEEO Titanic is one of the largest and longest models to date, made of 9,090 pieces, making it a truly immersive building challenge for any LEGO fan or budding historians alike.
As well as its sheer size, the Titanic was known for its unrivalled grandeur, which has been faithfully captured in this behemoth set.
Beneath the unmistakable exterior of the LEGO Titanic, there are several interior rooms to explore including the infamous First-Class grand staircase which spans six decks and the Jacobean-style dining saloon which was located on the ship’s D deck.
The Titanic was also renowned for its unparalleled speed, outclassing other ships of its time and ear, and in the lower decks, fans will find a replica of the state-of-the-art engine room.
“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.”Mike Psiaki, design master at the LEGO Group
At over 1.3m long, the LEGO Titanic set is perfect for display and comes with a unique plaque with the ship’s name and display stand. The newly launched ship is currently available for sale from the Offical Lego store site for $629.99.
