LEGO launches massive Titanic scale model replica
Just in time for the holiday season, LEGO has unveiled its latest building creation: a scale model of the Titanic.
“The LEGO Titanic is one of the longest and tallest LEGO models to date, consisting of 9,090 pieces, making it a truly immersive building challenge for LEGO fans and budding historians,” the company wrote in its announcement about the massive toy.
Not only does a completed model look like the exterior of the famous ship, many aspects of the interior are reproduced as well. This includes the grand staircase, the Jacobean-style dining room and the state-of-the-art engine room.
âAt the time of its launch, the Titanic was the pinnacle of nautical engineering, the largest moving vehicle ever created,â said Mike Psiaki, design master of the LEGO Group. âIt has been an incredible journey to recreate this iconic ship from LEGO bricks, using blueprints created over a century ago.
âDesigning the LEGO Titanic with an emphasis on immense detail and scale, but also precision, allowed us to create one of the most challenging building experiences to date. We know that brick builders and ship enthusiasts of all ages will love to build the decor and display it in their homes.
When completed, the model will be 53 inches long (4 feet 5 inches) and 17.5 inches high. Buyers will also receive a plaque and display to help show off their finished creation.
As expected, a size design costs a pretty dime. The website offers the LEGO Titanic for $ 629.99. LEGO is taking pre-orders now, and models will be available from November 1.
