Top 10 Biggest LEGO Sets – Autumn 2017

This list is now out of date, click here to see the Spring 2018 version.

2017 has been a record breaking year for massive LEGO sets. Not only were Assembly Square (10255) and Ninjago City (70620) released this year, but now LEGO has topped the list with the largest set of all time. Previously, that title was held for seven years by the Taj Mahal (10189). Now, the title of biggest LEGO set goes to the latest variant of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars (75192). Bumped off the list this time around was the Technic Bucket Wheel Excavator (42055). But, without further ado, here are the top 10 biggest LEGO sets as of September 2017.

Top 10 Biggest LEGO Sets – Summer 2017

This article is now out of date. Click here to read the newer version.

Back in April, I wrote a post for the April A-to-Z blogging challenge called “B is for Big – Top 10 Biggest LEGO Sets“. The article has been hugely popular. Given that popularity, and the fact that it is now out of date, I thought I would give it a little tweak today. So, as of August 16, 2017, here are the top 10 biggest LEGO sets!

There you have it! The big change from my spring edition of this post is the addition of Ninjago City (70620), which ultimately bumped the Death Star II (10141) off of the list. The Taj Mahal still holds on to its #1 spot after seven years, but if the rumours are true, there is a new contender for that spot on the horizon… What is your favorite set on this list? As always, your comments are welcome below.

Until next time,
