Today LEGO is officially revealing its second-biggest set ever, 10294 Titanic, to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the ill-fated ship’s launch in 1911. The huge 9,090-piece ship model features the iconic ocean liner in its prime, with cross-sections of the interior decks accessible at several points. The Titanic model rings in at more than 4 feet in length (1.3m) and will cost US $629.99 | CAN $799.99 | UK £569.99 when it’s available beginning Nov. 1, 2021.
The Titanic edges out last year’s 10276 Colosseum set by a mere 54 pieces to take the second-highest spot on the list of biggest LEGO sets, but falls well short of the top slot, occupied by the 11,695-piece World Map mosaic set released earlier this year.

10294 Titanic | 9,090 pieces | Available Nov. 1, 2021 | US $629.99 | CAN $799.99 | UK £569.99
LEGO says the Titanic model will be 17.5 inches tall (44cm), 6 inches wide (16cm) and a massive 53 inches long (135cm), positioning it easily as one of the physically largest LEGO sets ever.
The ship features a fully detailed exterior with the wood decks in tan.
In addition to the exterior, though, the model can be split into several parts (insert dark humor about the ship’s infamous wreck here) to see a full cross-section of the decks inside with lush staterooms and dining areas.
The Titanic’s massive engines are removable and feature moving pistons.
THE GRANDEST SHIP IN HISTORY JOINS THE LEGO® FAMILY
AS LEGO TITANIC IS UNVEILED
7 OCTOBER 2021: The LEGO Group has revealed an authentic replica of the most famous ship of all time, the RMS Titanic. For the first time, fans can now recreate the luxury liner in detailed LEGO® brick form, 110 years since it was launched in Belfast in 1911.
The LEGO Titanic is one of the longest and largest LEGO models to date, made up of 9,090 pieces, making it a truly immersive building challenge for LEGO fans and budding historians alike.
As well as its sheer size, the Titanic was known for its unrivalled grandeur, which has been faithfully captured in the set. Beneath the unmistakable exterior of the LEGO Titanic, there are several interior rooms to explore including the First-Class grand staircase which spans six decks and the Jacobean-style dining saloon which was located on the ship’s D deck.
The Titanic was also renowned for its unparalleled speed, outclassing other ships of the era, and in the lower decks, fans will find a replica of the state-of-the-art engine room.
Mike Psiaki, design master at the LEGO Group commented: “At the time of its launch the Titanic was the pinnacle of nautical engineering, the largest moving vehicle ever created. It has been an incredible journey to recreate this iconic vessel from LEGO bricks, using blueprints created over a century ago.
“Designing the LEGO Titanic with such a focus on immense detail and scale, but also accuracy, has allowed us to create one of the most challenging building experiences to date. We know brick builders and ship enthusiasts of all ages will love building the set and displaying it in their homes.”
At over 1.3m long, the LEGO Titanic set is perfect for display and comes with a unique plaque with the ship’s name. This impressive set is available for pre-order from 1st November and general sale from 8th November from LEGO Stores and www.LEGO.com/titanic at the recommended retail price of €629.99 / $629.99 / £535.69.
