The new set features a whopping 9,090 pieces. The completed project is an incredible 4 feet and 5 inches long, and stands at 18 inches tall and 7 inches wide.

The only other question is if you have a table big enough to complete this monstrosity, and enough stamina to get the job done.

LEGO Titanic is the company’s second-largest set in terms of number of pieces, beating out LEGO’s 9,036-piece Colosseum and coming in just behind the World Map LEGO set, which has a total of 11,695 pieces, reported Yahoo!

This massive size of the latest addition to the LEGO collection is a fitting tribute to the magnificence of the luxury liner that tragically sank in 1912. The immersive challenge will get any LEGO fan or budding historian excited with its extensive detail and historical accuracy.

The authentic replica features an “unmistakable exterior” and “several interior rooms to explore” including the First-Class grand staircase, which spans across six decks, and the iconic Jacobean-style dining saloon, the company said in a press release.

The unparalleled speed of the Titanic is also replicated with the state-of-the-art engine room.

“At the time of its launch the Titanic was the pinnacle of nautical engineering, the largest moving vehicle ever created,” Mike Psiaki, design master at the LEGO Group says. “It has been an incredible journey to recreate this iconic vessel from LEGO bricks, using blueprints created over a century ago.”

He continued, “Designing the LEGO Titanic with such a focus on immense detail and scale, but also accuracy, has allowed us to create one of the most challenging building experiences to date. We know brick builders and ship enthusiasts of all ages will love building the set and displaying it in their homes.”

LEGO’s Titanic set is available for pre-order starting November 1st. The set retails for $629.99 and is intended for ages 18+.
