LEGO has unveiled its biggest commercially available set ever. As fitting of one of the 7 Wonders of the World, the LEGO Taj Mahal set features 5,900 pieces!

Intended for professional LEGO fanatics, the set features "advanced building techniques, rare elements and colors, and realistic details of architecture." LEGO promises intricately detailed features such as the base, minarets, domes, finials, arches, and stairs of the Taj Mahal.

If you are lucky enough to know how to construct it, you would end up with a 20" (51cm) wide and over 16" (41cm) tall replica of the famous world wonder.
