LEGO's 'Largest' Ever Set Is The 9090-Piece Titanic

It’s been over 100 years since the RMS Titanic sunk in the North Atlantic, killing 1500 people in one of the greatest civilian maritime disasters in human history. Which is enough time to have passed, LEGO figures, to release a great big toy based on the ship.

The LEGO Titanic, due for release in November, is making the most of its subject matter; where the actual ship was, at the time, the largest ever built, so too is this (according to LEGO) the “largest official LEGO set ever created”, coming in at 9090 pieces and measuring an enormous 54" (135cm) long.
