The Definitive List of the Tallest LEGO Sets Ever Made

26th October 2023

Tallest LEGO Sets

LEGO seems to be reaching new heights each year, continuously producing bigger, better, and more impressive sets. These present a challenge to build, but a bigger challenge to display.

In this article, we provide a rundown of LEGO's most colossal sets and present the definitive list of the tallest LEGO sets ever made.

LEGO Loop Coaster

7. 10303 Loop Coaster

Height: 92 cm

The Loop Coaster features a gravity-powered roller coaster, so height was a necessity. The set's central elevator lift that raises to train to the top of the tracks stands at 92 cm tall. For the time being, the Loop Coaster can say it's the tallest LEGO amusement ride ever.

LEGO Liebherr Crawler Crane  LR 13000

6. 42146 Liebherr Crawler Crane LR 13000

Height: 99 cm

The LR 13000 is the most powerful conventional crawler crane in the world, being able to lift loads of up to 3,000 tonnes. The crane can also lift loads to a maximum of 236m. Such an impressive piece of machinery needed an equally impressive LEGO set, and that's what we got this year. With 2883 pieces, it's one of the biggest Technic models ever and the second tallest, measuring in at just over 99 cm.

LEGO Vestas Wind Turbine

5. 10268 Vestas Wind Turbine

Height: 100 cm

This set was a near identical reissue of set 4999, which was released in 2008. However, the original wind turbine was only distributed internally to Vestas employees. Building on the green credentials of renewable energy, one of the unique features of the re-released set were the plant elements that were made from plant-derived ethanol rather than petroleum. While the top of the main tower is only 65cm tall, when one of the three motorised blades is pointing directly upwards the set reaches just shy of 1 metre.

LEGO Rough Terrain Crane

4. 42082 Rough Terrain Crane

Height: 100 cm

When it was released the Rough Terrain Crane became the largest Technic set ever in terms of number of pieces. The set includes a range of features, one of which is that the crane can be extended, and when in its most upright position it reaches just shy of one metre. It narrowly beats the 42146 Liebherr Crawler Crane LR 13000 to the crown of tallest LEGO technic set.

LEGO NASA Apollo Saturn V

3. 92176 NASA Apollo Saturn V

Height: 100 cm

The NASA Apollo Saturn V is designed to be displayed either on its side, or in the takeoff position. When displayed as the latter, it stretches to exactly one metre tall. The set was a 1:110 scale model, with the real rocket being 110.6m in height.

LEGO Eiffel Tower

2. 10181 Eiffel Tower

Height: 104 cm

The original Eiffel Tower from 2007 still holds its own in the height stakes, despite being over 15 years old. It took the tallest set title from the 3450 Statue of Liberty by over 20 cm. At 108 cm tall, the set is designed as a 1: 300 scale replica, with the real life tower being 324 m tall when the set was released. It should be noted that in 2022 a new broadcast antenna was installed on top of the real Eiffel Tower, which raised its height up to 330cm. This is probably what sparked the release of the next set on our list…

LEGO Eiffel Tower

10307 Eiffel Tower

Height: 149 cm

The 10307 Eiffel Tower was released in 2022 and became the second biggest LEGO set ever produced, with a piece count of 10,001. Naturally, with a set that big, you'd expect it to be tall, but standing at 149cm, it towers over all over sets. It seems unlikely to lose the crown of the tallest LEGO set any time soon, unless LEGO decides to add a skyscraper to its Icons range.

The table below lists the top 15 tallest LEGO sets.

Set No. Set Name Height (cm)
10307 Eiffel Tower 149
10181 Eiffel Tower 108
92176 NASA Apollo Saturn V 100
42082 Rough Terrain Crane 100
10268 Vestas Wind Turbine 100
42146 Liebherr Crawler Crane LR 13000 99
10303 Loop Coaster 92
76269 Avengers Tower 90
3450 Statue of Liberty 84
76178 Daily Bugle 82
43222 Disney Castle 80
76417 Gringotts Wizarding Bank - Collectors' Edition 79
42108 Mobile Crane 78
71040 The Disney Castle 74
10237 Tower of Orthanc 73
