Biggest Lego Sets 2020 – Reviews
In this article, I will list my selection of the 9 biggest Lego sets that you can buy in 2020. Please note that there are more Lego models that consist of high number of pieces but I have tried to choose something from different Lego categories. This list will include four Lego Technic, one Harry Potter, two Star Wars, one Lego Ideas and one Stranger Things set.
Also, if you like big Lego models with many technical functions, I recommend checking out my other article on this website in which I review the top 6 Lego Technic sets with motors. Most of the Technic models mentioned in that article are large kits with around 2,000 – 4,000 parts.
Now, let’s continue to my reviews:
Lego Technic Liebherr R 9800 Excavator 42100
I will start off my list with a huge Lego Technic set, the Liebherr R 9800 Excavator vehicle. It features motorized functions and realistic features. You can drive it forwards and backwards, operate the bucket and boom and rotate the superstructure via the Lego Technic Control+ app. This Lego replica was designed in partnership with the Liebherr company. It contains 4 L motors and 3 XL motors. The building kit contains 4,108 bricks and is recommended for kids that are 12 years old or older. Or, this set is ideal for adult Lego fans too.
Lego Star Wars Millenium Falcon 75192
This Lego Star Wars spaceship model is the biggest Lego set ever produced (as of November 2020). It has 7,541 parts. There have been several Star Wars Millenium Falcon Lego sets released, but this one is from the Ultimate collector series and it is the largest one and the highest-valued one as well. It includes 7 minifigures too (the Star Wars movie characters): Fiin, Rey, Han Solo, Older Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and C-3PO. The features of the starship include a cockpit with detachable canopy, lowering boarding ramp and removable hull panels. The dimensions of the final model are: 33 inches (84 cm) long, 22 inches (56 cm) wide and 8 inches (21 cm) tall. It is recommended for age 16+.
Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle 71043
I wanted to have something for Harry Potter fans on this list too, so here it is: the Hogwarts Castle Lego replica. Besides the castle building, it includes 4 Harry Potter movie figures: Salazar Slytherin, Godric Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw and Helga Hufflepuff. It also includes 27 microfigures, the Whomping Willow, The Chamber of Secrets and more from the world of wizards. The castle’s highest tower is 22” (58 cm) tall. The whole set consists of 6,020 pieces and is recommended for kids who are 16 years old or older. Also, this Lego set was awarded the 2019 Toy of the Year Awards (from The Toy Association).
Lego Technic Rough Terrain Crane 42082
If you are a fan of heavy construction vehicles, you will definitely like this Lego set, which contains more than four thousand Lego bricks and with which you can even build two different models as it is a 2-in-1 building kit. The first model is a Rough Terrain Crane, which represents the largest and tallest Lego Technic crane – in the working position the model is 39″ high, 25″ inches long and 10″ wide, in the driving position it is bit smaller. The second model is a Mobile Pile Driver.
The crane is made in a red and black color scheme and it has many amazing details like two opening compartments with tools, chains, fire extinguisher, V8 engine with moving pistons, adjustable wing mirrors and much more. The model requires batteries and if you activate the power functions you can operate the crane pretty easily. The whole model is stabilized by the stabilizer legs so even if you lift heavy things it will not fall apart.
Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 42115
This building kit is perfect for lovers of huge Lego sets with many particles. This one contains almost 3,700 Lego bricks and you can build a perfectly detailed 1:8 model of Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 with all these particles. The model is 5″ high, 23″ long and 9″ wide. It is made in a ravishing lime-green color with golden tires. You will also definitely appreciate the packaging – the box looks luxurious and it contains exclusive collectors’ booklet mentioning behind-the-scenes information about the model.
This model is suited for people who love super sports cars. It has an eight-speed sequential transmission, which can be controlled by the movable paddle gearshift, movable rear spoiler, opening hoods, detailed disc brakes, V12 engine with moving pistons and a four-wheel drive. Furthermore, you can find a unique serial number under the hood with which you can get an access to exclusive online content.
Lego Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina 75290
This Lego set was inspired by Star Wars and it was made in cooperation with Disney. With 3,187 Lego bricks, you can build an epic cantina, the hub of underworld activity, which was introduce to the audience in the movie Star Wars: A New Hope. This building kit does not contain only the cantina but also 21 minifigures including the main characters like Luke Skywalker. Han Solo or C-3PO. There are Dewback figure and two Landspeeders inside so you can recreate many scenes.
You can role-play and recreate many of the important scenes – the dark dealings at the bar, action bar scenes, the scene when Han Solo and Greedo met for the last time and much more. I like that the cantina building can be closed and opened so if you close it, you can recreate scenes from the exterior and if you open the building you are able to see the tables and the bar which is perfectly detailed, including glasses or beer tap.
Lego Stranger Things The Upside Down 75810
Further down on my list is a Lego building kit from the Netflix movie series called Stranger Things. This set features a possibility to flip the model and switch between the Upside Down and the real world. It also includes a light function in the living room. And, besides the Hopper’s police truck, it includes 8 minifigures too: Joyce, Lukas, Mike, Eleven, Hopper, Will, Dustin and Demogorgon. This Lego model consists of 2,287 bricks and is recommended for kid of age 16+. It is the smallest Lego set from this list of big models.
Lego Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay 21322
Another one on my list is a Lego Ideas theme set. First, I’d like to mention that you may have not known that the Lego Ideas theme is a special one because these Lego building kits were not designed by Lego designers, but people that submitted their Lego designs to Lego via their website. If you are interested in more Lego Ideas sets, you might like to check my other article that reviews the Lego Ideas 21320 Dinosaur Fossils model (which is one of my favorite Lego models that I have bought too). This kit features a pirates’ shipwreck with some minifigures as well. It consists of 2,545 pieces and is ideal for kids of age 16+.
Lego Technic Bucket Wheel Excavator 42055
I will conclude this list with another Lego Technic model (the first one in this list is from the Lego Technic theme too). It is a great Lego replica of a bucket wheel excavator that comes in 3,929 bricks. It is one of the largest Lego Technic sets. The motorized functions (power functions) of this set include rotating superstructure, rotating bucket wheel, reverse driving and moving conveyor belt. If you are a technical type, I recommend buying this particular Lego building kit.
Hopefully, this article was helpful for you to choose a large Lego set for you or for your kids. And if you wonder which one I would buy, it would be definitely the Lamborghini Sián model, as Technic is my favorite Lego theme and I love sport cars. However, I’m also a Harry Potter fan, so I would seriously consider the Hogwarts Castle set as well. These big Legos look very nice illuminated with Lego light kits, so you can consider adding one to your purchase, too.
Lego enthusiast, big Lego Technic fan. I have been blogging about Lego since 2017, when I started this blog. When I’m not writing an article for this blog or building a Lego set, I’m probably riding my bike. You can find out more about me here.
