LEGO “Colosseum”: a Guinness World Record set (again)!

LEGO “Colosseum”: a Guinness World Record set (again)!

LEGO “Colosseum”

Fans of LEGO bricks love to build for the most diverse reasons: there are those who build to rediscover the pleasure of playing their childhood, there are those who build because they are passionate about a certain theme (cars, trains, films, comics, video games) and those who, like Paul Ufema, build for the thrill of speed. Paul is so quick to build that he just earned a Guinness World Record for the best (and shortest) construction time of the LEGO set that reproduces our Colosseum: 9,036 LEGO bricks assembled in 13 hours, 37 minutes and 36 seconds. Can you imagine the condition of Paul's fingertips after construction?

The Guinness World Record

The record attempt took place in Forest, a small town in the US state of Virginia, last year February 24, 2021.

Paul said he and his brother have been passionate about Guinness World Records since they were children. Being today the owner of a YouTube channel - All New Bricks - dedicated to LEGO bricks, he decided to combine these two passions (LEGO and GWR) and to try to obtain the Guinness World Records for the fastest builder of the Colosseum in bricks and therefore officially recognized as the fastest person in the world to join together the 9,036 bricks included in the LEGO Creator Expert # 10276 Colosseum set.

The set of records

The LEGO Creator Expert set # 10276 Colosseum itself holds a Guinness World Record: with its 9,036 pieces it is the largest set on the market, beating 1,500 pieces the previous record holder: the set, consisting of “only” 7,541 pieces. Once built, the brick replica of our iconic Roman amphitheater measures over 10 '' (27cm) high, 52cm (52cm) wide and 59cm deep. to move from concept to arrival on the shelves. Rok himself built the set several times, but never managed to drop below 30 hours.

Watch a Lego 'Speed Builder' Snap Together a Colosseum in 13 Hours

If you want to feel worse about never finishing that LEGO set you purchased, look no further than Paul Ufema. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Ufema holds the title for building the largest commercially available lego set in—wait for it—under 14 hours.

In a YouTube video released today, Ufema is shown building the Colosseum LEGO set, which includes more than 9,000 pieces. A timer is positioned at the bottom right corner of the screen so viewers can see Ufema clip together all of the pieces faster than most people manage to even start the complex build.

Ufema runs the popular YouTube channel All New Bricks, where he speed-builds every set he can get his hands on. In the Colosseum video, he talks about how his passion for working on large LEGO builds began in college, after he purchased two Ultimate Collection Star Wars sets. Following a career in news production, Ufema combined his talents into one place. He also has a behind the scenes video on his channel, where he explains how he conceived the idea for the title.

Now that he's won the world record, Ufema says he won't stop there. 'I mean how can I? But I'm only going to focus on the really big stuff,' he says. He mentions a rumor that LEGO will release a Star Wars set even bigger than the Colosseum, and hopes he can take advantage of the moment to snatch world record number two.
