When we say that several products by LEGO have set records, we certainly mean it: Guinness World Records. This international database of statistics for “the most x of y” also includes some official LEGO sets and notable MOCs, with records established ranging from biggest to tallest and so much more.
This week, Guinness World Records has put up a new section on their official website called “Making History with LEGO Bricks”. As stated, this section shines the spotlight on LEGO sets or MOCs builds that either hold official World Records, or represents an object that holds a World Record.
One example of the former category is the news-making LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), which holds a GWR on its own right for “Largest commercially available LEGO set (7,541 pieces)”. Then we have the long-retired LEGO Creator Maersk Triple-E Container Ship (10241); while not a record-holder itself, the set does depict the (former) GWR holder for “Largest Container Ship”.
The Building History with LEGO section on the Guinness World Record website details 8 such LEGO sets and builds that have world records attached to them. It’s also apparently going to be a special feature in the 2019 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records. They have a list of stores from 10 countries where that book, and its other special spinoffs (Wild Things and Gamer’s Edition) are available.
The Guinness Book of World Records 2019 edition went on sale this Tuesday, August 28.
