110 years ago, one of the most famous ships in history launched in Belfast. The RMS Titanic was the largest ship of its time, and a luxury liner catering to some of the wealthiest people in the world. Below the luxurious decks of the super rich were also emigrants from around Europe making their way to America. As you probably know, the Titanic stuck an iceberg and sunk on April 15, 1912. It was on its maiden voyage. Of the approximately 2224 people on board, only about 710 survived. The sinking of the Titanic is one of the worst disasters in naval history. Some might consider it an odd thing to commemorate as a LEGO® set. However, the RMS Titanic is coming soon.
From my point of view, the Titanic always held a strange fascination. I continually read articles related to the disaster as they pop up in my news feed. While half of me feels a LEGO® set based on such a tragic event is a little off-brand, the other half cannot wait to build this. Based on the early images alone, the details are phenomenal. Not only that, the Titanic is now the third largest LEGO® kit ever produced after the World Map and the Colosseum.
LEGO® Titanic is the third largest set ever produced.
The press kit shares the following description of set:
The LEGO® Titanic is one of the longest and largest LEGO® models to date, made up of 9,090 pieces, making it a truly immersive building challenge for LEGO® fans and budding historians alike.
As well as its sheer size, the Titanic was known for its unrivalled grandeur, which has been faithfully captured in the set. Beneath the unmistakable exterior of the LEGO® Titanic, there are several interior rooms to explore including the First-Class grand staircase which spans six decks and the Jacobean-style dining saloon which was located on the ship’s D deck.

Interestingly, it appears as though the Titanic assembles in large sections. At the breaking point of each section, the LEGO® Group treats us to interior views of the ill-fated ship. As I write this, a pre-release copy of the set just arrived at my door. We will have an in depth look at the RMS Titanic coming soon. Needless to say, this will not be a short build.
