It's the perfect gift for the budding Lego Master!

The Lego company released what they call the ‘largest product ever made' - the Roman Colosseum.

Built from a staggering 9,036 pieces, it measures 27cm high, 52cm wide and 59cm deep. It beats the previous record holder, the Star Wars Millennium Falcon, by 1500 bricks.

Lego says that its latest product was made with "great attention to detail to make it faithful to the original and to enhance its timeless beauty."

"The model features 3 storeys, adorned with columns of the Doric, Ionic and Corinthian orders while the attic is decorated with Corinthian pilasters."

However it doesn't come cheap: the Lego Colosseum will reportedly set you back almost $900 (NZD) when it comes on the market on 27 November.

If you don't want to fork out for one big worldly monument, Lego does have its own themed advent calendar which provides a special figurine or mini build for each day in the lead up to Christmas (made of real bricks, not chocolate.)
