Lego's super-expensive new set already sold out - despite having no Cyber Monday deal

At the same time as the official Lego Black Friday deals kicked off on November 27, the brand released its eye-wateringly-expensive new set, and despite the lack of any Black Friday or Cyber Monday Lego deal on it, the kit has sold out.

This new set is the Lego Creator Colosseum, and that set will cost you a knee-shaking  $549.99 / £449.99 - it's one of the priciest new Lego sets the brand has ever put out, though certainly not the most expensive.

That price is somewhat justified - the set has over 9,000 pieces, and is roughly half a meter squared with a 27cm height. It's not quite as big as the historical location it's based on, but it's not too far off either.

It's also a really good looking kit - we've rather fallen in love with it despite never having visited the actual site it's based on.

Despite its high price and huge footprint, this Lego Colosseum has apparently found a keen audience, as the set sold out really quickly. It's currently on backorder on the Lego website, with new orders set to ship on January 21 at time of writing.

Missed a deal

It's no wonder there wasn't a Cyber Monday Lego deal on the Colosseum set, due to it being so new, but we're still impressed at the kit's popularity given its price.

Super-pricey Lego sets aren't for everyone, but there are other real-life locations and historical-inspired kits on offer in the Lego Cyber Monday sales that might fit in your price tag a little more.

These kits are for deals in the US and UK, and cover wonders of the modern world as well as other real-life-inspired things.

We'll list them below, so you can peruse them at your leisure and see if anything piques your interest. We've also got a massive and comprehensive Cyber Monday Lego deal round-up if you want to see other kinds of sets too.
