New Release: Easy Ways To Display The LEGO Roman Colosseum - 10276
LEGO 10276 - Roman Colosseum
Available from LEGO.com and LEGO Stores from 27th November.
Introducing Lego’s newest artistic display piece and most part-intensive set to date, the LEGO Colosseum set! Featuring intricate details, new parts, the ability to view it in complete 360 degrees, LEGO have brought us a set that can be sat on your display shelves at home showing the newer or older sides of the landmark… or have they?
This Black Friday, LEGO® fans can take home a piece of history and re-create Rome’s most iconic landmark, with the awe-inspiring new LEGO Colosseum set. This set measures over 10.5” (27cm) high, 20.5” (52cm) wide and 23.5” (59cm) deep and is made up of 9,036 pieces; Making the LEGO Colosseum is the largest LEGO brick set launched to date.
Every detail of the set has been meticulously crafted to stay true to the real-life Colosseum, including having 80 ‘ribs’ in the spectator stands (the exact same number as the original) and having three different shades of brick to replicate the different columns and aging of the almost 2,000-year-old landmark.
The LEGO Colosseum rests on an oval base, allowing this phenomenal 360-degree display piece to be shown off from any angle. Builders can then choose which side of this magnificent LEGO Brick recreation, one of Rome’s most visited landmarks they display. Whether they choose the southern side of the building, which has been destroyed by various earthquakes and natural disasters over the years, or the more complete northern wall. Colosseum features arches, that have been recreated with LEGO brick detailing, allowing a view into the centre of the Colosseum from the outside, just like its real-life counterpart.
The set was designed by Rok Zgalin Kobe who commented:
