For many people Christmas is a time to take a few days to relax and take it easy. Making it the perfect time to grab a LEGO® set and get building. So why not tackle a set that will take a few hours or even days to complete. For our next Festive Gift Guide, we take a look at some of the ultimate LEGO sets available. These large-scale sets may not be cheap but they do offer an extensive and highly detailed build. Filled with expert build techniques and plenty of fun play, our picks for Ultimate Builds showcase some of my favourite builds of the last few years and some I’d like to build. If these are a little beyond your price point, then why not check out the Stocking Fillers and Budding Master Builders Gift Guides.
