The 10 Biggest LEGO Sets of 2021

Biggest LEGO Sets of 2021

2021 has been the year of BIG LEGO. Like, really big LEGO. In fact, half of the sets on our list of Biggest LEGO Sets Ever Released are from 2021. That’s insane. And it makes it nervous/excited for just how big LEGO sets are going to be in 2022 and beyond.

But before we start thinking about that, let’s take a look at the 10 biggest LEGO sets released in 2021, shall we? We’re going by piece count here rather than dimensions, so these are the sets with the most pieces, in ascending order.

10. LEGO 76178 Daily Bugle

LEGO 76178 Daily Bugle
  • Number of pieces: 3,772
  • Release date: 1st June 2021
  • RRP £274.99

At 3,772 pieces, the LEGO 76178 Daily Bugle dwarves anything else in the Marvel range. And it towers over them in height too; at 82cm tall, this set is much taller than not just any other Marvel set to date, but most LEGO sets full stop. Its whopping 25 minifigures make it even more impressive, too. You can read our review of it by clicking here.

9. LEGO Technic 42131 Cat D11 Bulldozer

  • Number of pieces: 3,854
  • Release date: 1st October 2021
  • RRP £419.99

This recreation of a Cat D11 Bulldozer is every bit as impressive as it sounds. Several motors inside allow it to be controller with the Technic Control app. And its 3,854 parts come together to make a huge model that any Technic fan is going to love. It’s 58.2cm x 48cm x 17 cm – so it’s has quite a presence.

With tracks that move the bulldozer backwards and forwards, a scoop that moves along with other working parts, too, this is more than just a model. We wouldn’t necessarily recommend trying to do any actual bulldozing with it though. Well, unless it’s a LEGO model.

8. LEGO Ideas 21330 Home Alone

  • Number of pieces: 3,955 pieces
  • Release date: 1st November 2021
  • RRP £229.99

The latest LEGO Ideas set is also the biggest: at 3,955 pieces Home Alone trumps the LEGO Ideas Grand Piano which currently holds the record as the biggest Ideas set. For fans of the classic Christmas movie, this set will surely be a must-have. It recreates the McAllister home in loving detail, packing in many of Kevin’s ingenious traps so you can re-enact your favourite scenes from the film.

7. LEGO 21226 Art Project – Create Together

  • Number of pieces: 4,138 pieces
  • Release date: 1st November 2021
  • RRP £114.99

LEGO’s latest addition to its Art range is something slightly different. Rather than recreate a famous pop icon or piece of art, Art Project is all about making your own designs, collaboratively. It’s designed so that up to nine people can build together, each creating their own pattern or image on a smaller tile. They’ll then be joined together to be displayed. It’s a nifty idea for the more creative builders among us.

6. LEGO Art 31201 Harry Potter Hogwarts Crests

LEGO Art 31201 Harry Potter Hogwarts Crest
  • Number of pieces: 4,249 pieces
  • Release date: 1st January 2021
  • RRP £114.99

It’s no surprise that we’ve ended up with multiple LEGO Art sets on this list of biggest LEGO sets of 2021. They have very high piece counts, but the majority of the pieces involved are studs. And you don’t need to use every piece – there’s always enough pieces to make multiple designs, you see.

5. LEGO 10284 Camp Nou – FC Barcelona

LEGO 10284 Camp Nou
  • Number of pieces: 5,509
  • Release date: 1st September 2021
  • RRP £299.99

At 5,509 pieces, this recreation of FC Barcelona’s home stadium is quite the whopper. It’s a very impressive-looking set, though, especially if you’re a football fan. Just make sure you’ve got plenty of space to display it; it’s 49cm wide by 46cm deep.

4. LEGO 71741 Ninjago City Gardens

  • Number of pieces: 5,685
  • Release date: January 2021
  • RRP £274.99

Ninjago City Gardens stands out not only because it’s so huge, but because it’s so beautifully colourful. Just look at it! The amount of detail it packs in is absurd. It’s a beautiful set; you don’t have to be a Ninjago fan to truly appreciate this either. Not only is this one of the biggest LEGO sets released in 2021, it’s also one of our favourites.

3. LEGO Star Wars 75313 AT-AT

LEGO Star Wars 75313 AT-AT
  • Number of pieces: 6,785
  • Release date: November 2021
  • RRP £699.99

The AT-AT is the second-biggest LEGO set in the Star Wars range, and a rather impressive build at that. At just shy of 70cm tall, it’s no slouch, and will make an impressive display piece for any LEGO Star Wars collector. It ought to, though; not only is it the third biggest LEGO set release in 2021, it’s the single most expensive LEGO set released to date.

2. LEGO 10294 Titanic

LEGO 10294 Titanic
  • Number of pieces: 9,090
  • Release date: November 2021
  • RRP £569.99

“They called it the ship of dreams… and it was, it really was.”

Not only does the LEGO Titanic have a whopping 9,000 pieces, it’s the longest LEGO set ever released, measuring in at 1.35 metres. You need a lot of display space to show off this beauty, but it’s absolutely worth it. Not only is its exterior brilliantly detailed, but it also has cross-sections showing internal details, too, like the grand staircase, the engine room and some staterooms. Absolutely deserving of its place on the biggest LEGO sets of 2021.

1. LEGO Art 31203 World Map

LEGO Art World Map
  • Number of pieces: 11,695
  • Release date: June 2021
  • RRP £229.99

Can you even begin to imagine: over 11,000 pieces! Eleven thousand. Not only is this the biggest LEGO set of 2021, it’s also the biggest LEGO set ever. Being a LEGO Art set though, you’ll have some spare when you’ve finished building the World Map, but it’s still huge. This piece of art is designed to be hung on your wall when you’ve built it, and it’s over one metre long.
