If You Want The Largest Lego Set You Need To Buy The Lego Taj Mahal

If you are looking to learn more about or to buy the largest Lego set then you have come to the right place. Lego's Taj Mahal, set number 10189, is currently the largest set in existence in terms of sheer number of pieces. The Taj Mahal itself is one of the seven wonders of the world and the Lego version is a fantastic likeness of this landmark, which is located in India. If you are a fan of Lego and want to own the largest Lego set, then you need to buy the Lego Taj Mahal.

Lego's Taj Mahal set was released in 2008. It continues to be a very popular and sought after set even though it is an officially retired set. Because of that continued demand, this set continues to soar in price. I see it listed new on Amazon at this moment (2014) at $2,249.99 and up. That's pretty incredible for a set that just four years ago retailed for $299.99.

Read on to better understanding what you will receive and how long it might take to build the Taj Mahal should you decide to buy it. Note that I have not constructed this set but have been assisted in putting this page together by a Lego enthusiast.

Pros And Cons Of Buying The Lego Taj Mahal Set

Pro 1. Stunning Appearance

If you have seen photos of the Taj Mahal, you will agree that this particular Lego set is worthy of serving as a fine example of that wonderful structure. The most recognizable feature of this set is its resemblence to the genuine building. Once you build the Lego Taj Mahal set, the proportions look absolutely dazzling.

Pro 2: Fine Detail

Another thing about this Legos structure, "The Taj Mahal," is that anybody inspecting its parts, arches, bends and designs, will see that it was expertly made to amaze each and every fan of Lego. This Lego structure, and it`s appearance, emphasize the structure itself, instead of changing this wonder of the world into a cutesy, non realistic sort of set.

Pro 3: Solid Build

The Taj Mahal structure when built is quite solid, and fairly tough. If the user wants to move it to another area, it can be effortlessly done by detaching the six base connectors and lifting it without destroying the entire building.

Pro 4: Family Involvement

This is a fine Lego set to build with the entire family although it is a difficult set, recommended by Lego for those 14 years old and up and for experienced builders. Younger Lego building novices will most likely need assistance from their parents and older siblings to help build the more intricate, detailed building elements contained within this Lego Taj Mahal set.

Con: Not Properly Categorized Blocks

Despite the excellence that the Taj Mahal Lego set showcases, it does appear to have flaws. Individuals online often say that they cannot spot the squares they need because they are not isolated well enough in their bundles. This may require time spent sorting through the vast number of Lego pieces.

      This is really something, what an undertaking. I don't think I'd even take it down after putting all the work into building it. Anyone who purchased this made a good investment I'd say.

      I'd love to see it all set up. It's not a project I'd be willing to tackle though.
