One of the biggest Lego sets ever is about to make a comeback

Lego’s interpretation of the Taj Mahal was its biggest set ever when it was originally released back in 2008, and the 5,923-piece reimagining of one of the world’s architectural wonders is about to get a relaunch.

Its crown may have been stolen by the Ultimate Collector’s Edition Millennium Falcon and its 7,541 pieces, but the 16-inch tall, 20-inch wide Lego Taj Mahal is so huge it actually divides into seven modular sections for easier transportation.

The stunning recreation captures the structure’s four facades with sweeping arches, balconies and arched windows, with the original proving so popular that boxed copies can sell for up to £4,000 on eBay.

That makes the new release’s £299.99 price tag seem almost palatable, so it’ll be well worth snapping up when it becomes available on November 27.
