Today, 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. Below are the details.
The #10294 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 unrivaled grandeur, which has been faithfully captured in the set. Beneath the unmistakable exterior of the #10294 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 #10294 LEGO Titanic set is perfect for display and comes with a unique plaque with the ship’s name. The exact measurements are 17.5 inches (44cm) high, 6 inches wide (16cm), and 53 inches (135cm) long.
