The Titanic model, on a 1:200 scale, is more than 4 feet long.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The RMS Titanic is the subject of LEGO’s largest-ever set, which pays homage to one of the most famous ships of all time.
When fully assembled, the LEGO Titanic, which has 9,090 pieces, measures more than 53 inches (about 4.4 feet). It currently holds the record for the longest LEGO set ever created. It measures 18 inches in height and 7 inches in width.
According to the company, the ship’s blueprints were used to create a 1:200 scale model of the ship during its maiden voyage.
The LEGO Titanic has a hefty price tag attached to it. It’ll cost you around $630. The set won’t be released until November 8, but it will be available for pre-order starting November 1.
While there is no iceberg and figurines of Leonardo DiCaprio or Kate Winslet, the set can be divided into three sections to show the interior design, including “the First Class Grand Staircase, Dining Saloon, and Engine Room.”
Despite having over 9,000 individual pieces, the LEGO Titanic has fewer than the company’s World Map set, which contains 11,695 pieces.

Mike Psiaki, a design master, described the process of recreating the iconic vessel from blueprints created more than a century ago as an “incredible journey.”
“By designing the LEGO Titanic with such a focus on immense detail and scale, as well as accuracy, we were able to create one of the most difficult building experiences to date,” says the team, Psiaki explained. “We’re confident that brick builders and ship fans of all ages will enjoy constructing the set and displaying it in their homes.”
