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.

In addition, it also portrays the arena’s walkways complete with travertine paving stones and olive trees. What’s more, it also features the hypogeum or the intricate structure that runs beneath the arena’s floor.
Just like the actual Wonder of the World, it also consists of three stories
All of which feature columns in the Corinthian, Doric and Ionic orders
This brick Colosseum model also comes with an oval display base, allowing a 360 degree viewing angle. Overall, the figure measures over 10.5 inches high, 20.5 inches wide and 23.5 inches deep.
Given its fairly large size, it’s sure to be an eye-catching piece of décor for your home or office. However, you might need a separate table or cabinet to display your masterpiece.

This special-edition kit is part of LEGO’s Creator Expert series. So, it’s generally designed for builders aged 18 and above. That said, we expect that assembling this figure will not be an easy feat. Nevertheless, the process, more so the finished product, will definitely be worth your while.
It will be up for sale starting from Black Friday which falls on November 27th
As mentioned earlier, the kit will be available for purchase starting November 27th here. Aside from the building bricks, you’ll also get a coffee-table-style building instruction manual to guide and inspire you along the process.
