One of the most famous ships in the world is the RMS Titanic. Over 100 years ago, the vessel was the jewel in the British shipping company, White Star Line’s crown. But it’s famous for a very different reason as it sank in the North Atlantic on April 12th, 1912, after striking an iceberg. Despite this tragedy, the ship was one of the largest ever to hit the waves and an engineering marvel, which has inspired this impressive new LEGO® set. The LEGO Titanic is one of the longest and largest LEGO models to date, made up of 9,090 pieces and measuring over a metre in length. It features no stickers, with details created using printed or material elements. You can also view inside the ship with cross-sections showing the interior. The LEGO Titanic set is available for pre-order from 1st November and general sale from 8th November from LEGO Stores and LEGO.com.
