Top 10 Biggest Sets 2021

It has been a while since we have taken a look at the largest LEGO® sets of all time. In fact, the last installment was in fall of 2020. A lot has changed since then. The LEGO® Group’s ambitious designs over the last year have knocked five previous title holders off of the list. Incidentally, the rankings no longer contain any sets below 5000 bricks. Classics like the original Ninjago City, Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters, and Big Ben are all gone. On the plus side, some really neat sets have taken their place. Interestingly, when I started tracking these sets, the Taj Mahal was the largest set of all time. Now, it sits near the bottom of the list at number seven. In any case, here are the top 10 biggest sets of 2021.

01. World Map

Top 10 biggest sets: The World Map
©2021 The LEGO® Group.

There you have it: the top 10 biggest sets in 2021. Of course, we compiled this list based on brick count. That might be contentious for some since the World Map lands in the number one place using that criterion. Some might not consider it the biggest set since its monster brick count consists almost entirely of Dots elements. However, I have built the World Map and it is quite impressive when complete. I think it deserves its title. What do you think of the top 10 biggest sets 2021 edition? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,

  • I’m not one to argue about the World Map set. It is the biggest set in terms of parts count, and that’s the standard almost everyone uses to judge these things. But it does go to show that parts count is not everything.
