the colosseum

Retailing for around $550 and coming in just 9,000 pieces, the recreation of Rome’s historic Colosseum is one of the most extravagant mass-produced LEGO sets on the market right now.

Details such as archways, pathways and olive trees will further lend authenticity to a collector’s version of a real-life amphitheater.
