(Nexstar) – Lego has launched its largest-ever set. Again.
The new set comes barely six months after Lego released its previous largest set, the Colosseum, which comprised of 9,036 pieces.
The new map, measuring 25.5 inches in height and 40.5 inches in width, is divided into three sections that can be arranged three different ways, allowing you to place your favorite part of the world in the center of your map.
The oceans on the map can also be customized if you don’t want to stick with the accurate rendering of the ocean’s floor that comes with the instructions.
The new set comes with a coffee-table style instruction booklet, a white brick-built frame and two hanging elements. The set will cost $299.99 and be available at lego.com and in Lego stores as of June 1.
Fiorella Groves, Creative Lead for LEGO Art, commented: “We know that our adult fans love to travel, but many haven’t been able to do so for over a year now. We thought that there was no better way of helping explore the world while relaxing in the comfort of their home than by allowing them to build, rebuild, plan and reminisce through building. We hope the LEGO Art World Map will inspire new adventures in some, and help others relive and celebrate wonderful travel memories from the past.”
An accompanying soundtrack is also included, featuring stories from travel experts including:
- Syazwani Baumgartner from the “Travel Muse Family” blog, who shares her experience of visiting one of the most remote villages in the world.
- Torbjørn C. Pedersen, who was the first person in history to visit every country in one unbroken journey without flying.
- Dane & Stacey, a New Zealand couple who run a travel YouTube channel called “Daneger & Stacey,” and speak about a trip to the Cook Islands.
- Ernest White II, who is an American travel TV producer and host.
- Fiorella Groves, a LEGO designer and travel lover.
