The LEGO Roman Colosseum Is Their Largest Set To Date With 9,036 Pieces

Aside from the massive sales, another thing we looked forward to on Black Friday (November 27th) was the release of the LEGO Roman Colosseum. With 9,036 pieces, it’s the toy brick brand’s largest set to date, surpassing the 7,541-piece Star Wars Millennium Falcon kit. Indeed, this new model will make the perfect gift for the architecture and history buffs or the LEGO fans in your life.

This buildable model faithfully captures the historic architectural details of the colossal amphitheater, both inside and out. For starters, it accurately depicts the surviving archways on the arena’s façade.
