The 35 Largest LEGO Sets of All Time [List via Brickset]
I was recently admiring some images of the Ultimate Collector's Series Millennium Falcon , released back in 2007. The set is well known among collectors to be, at this point, one of the most expensive, rare, and, thus, unattainable LEGO sets in existence. Even the initial retail price of this set the highest in LEGO history with a price tag of $499.99 US dollars. Clocking in at a total of 5,197 pieces, this set is also one of the largest sets in LEGO history. This got me thinking. Exactly, what is the largest LEGO set in history? Is it the UCS Millennium Falcon? As it turns out, the answer is no. There is a set which beats the UCS Millennium Falcon by 725 pieces! [hint: it's pictured above]
A quick search led me to Brickset.com. We, of course, all know and love Brickset, so I don't need to provide a lengthy introduction here. I will just say that Brickset is a fantastic site which, in addition to providing all the latest LEGO news, it allows you to create a profile and inventory your entire LEGO minifigure and set collection directly on their site. If you're unfamiliar, you should absolutely check it out. They are an integral cog in the machinery of the LEGO community [that was a weird way to put it]. Anyway, back in January of this year Brickset posted a list of the 35 largest sets in LEGO history, and the list is quite varied. There are Creator sets [of course], Technic sets, UCS Star Wars sets [again, of course], The LEGO Movies sets, Simpson's sets. It's really a fun list to check out. Of course, the first thing I did was quickly look to see if any of the sets which I actually own made the list. I do own one - The Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters . I own the third largest! [my wallet sits in the corner and quietly sulks].
