Almost a decade after the first version hit shelves, the new 10256 Taj Mahal is now available to order from the LEGO Shop online or at your local LEGO store. The Taj Mahal was the largest LEGO set ever released until the new edition of the UCS Millennium Falcon unseated it last month. This re-release of this Indian icon includes 5,923 pieces (one more than its predecessor) and is priced at $369.99 USD.
The original Taj Mahal still commands a premium on the secondary market, though news of its re-release has cut prices more than half since it was announced (from $3,000 USD to $1,350 for a new, unopened set). LEGO’s alleged recent focus on reclaiming some of the secondary market is having a noticeable effect.
Additionally, if you order today (Cyber Monday), the LEGO Shop Online has a few remaining Black Friday sales and freebies, including several discounted sets, 40254 Nutcracker with purchases over $99 and a branded shopping bag with purchases over $199, while supplies last.
Although specific sales and promotions will vary by region, remember that our Canadian readers can support TBB by clicking through to buy the Taj Mahal (or anything else) from this button:
