Christmas Gift Guide: Ultimate Builds

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 the next festive Gift Guide, I suggest 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 features. The 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 gift ideas.

LEGO Ideas Tree House

One of my favourite sets of the year, the Tree House passed me by during the Ideas project stage. So when I came to build it I loved every second. It looks great and carries a special message, thanks to all the plant elements being made from plant-based plastics.

Ultimate Collectors Series Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer

The most recent addition to the UCS range is another remake of a classic Star Wars set. The Imperial Star Destroyer appeared in the very first Star Wars film, and has been the focus of numerous LEGO sets but this is by far the most detailed yet.
