The Roman Colosseum is one of the seven man-made wonders of the world, and this 9,036-piece LEGO version of it might just be the eighth. A faithful bricked re-creation of the famous 80,000-person capacity oval amphitheater dwarfs everything else made by LEGO by thousands of pieces, and at 23.5 inches across, it will overcome most desk surfaces with authority. The LEGO version mimics the ruins of the current day, while it shows off exterior columns and walkways, interior seating areas, the arena, and the intricate hypogeum underbelly where all manner of gladiator chest-bumping no doubt occurred. The $550 juggernaut goes on sale November 27th, providing you with a perfect way to burn off some Thanksgiving calories via furious finger exercises.
