This Holiday season, LEGO is going big, very big. True, they may have stopped further development of their toys-to-life game title LEGO Dimensions, but that is just one portion of the huge multimedia juggernaut that the Danish toy giant has built up over the years.
With the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on cinemas, LEGO is pushing their licensed Star Wars merchandise to the utmost, led by the Ultimate Collectors Series Millennium Falcon (75192). This UCS now heads the 11 largest LEGO sets ever rolled out, all of them (save for the Falcon probably) are still available by the end of the year.
The UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), at 7,541 pieces, is hands down the largest set yet to be created by LEGO and a hot item for many a Star Wars aficionado this year. Together with the re-release of the 5,923-piece Taj Mahal (10256) and the Ninjago City set (70620) at 4,867 pieces, they are the top 3 biggest in the bunch of 11 that are all in stock at LEGO brand stores and online for purchase.
These will be the crème de la crème for builders who want their LEGO models and play sets huge. Some of their prices are steep, though. Note that set 75192, worth US$800 or £650, will remain a LEGO VIP exclusive, at least until the end of November. The Taj Mahal re-release on the other hand, will set you back $370 when it hits stores on November 27, while the Ninjago City at $300.
