I believe the Imperial Star Destroyer is the biggest in terms of size, at 58.8 cm by 50.5 cm by 21 cm, and the Death Star in the number of pieces, at 3803. Are there any newer, bigger models?

In 2008, LEGO released an exclusive Creator model of the Taj Mahal, with 5922 pieces, the most in a commercial LEGO set.

It is no longer available at the LEGO Shop, but it's still commercially available from other retailers. Here's its Amazon product page.

Woah. That's quite a kit. Like to see the average build time for that. – tombull89 Oct 26 '11 at 10:33
Average time I don't know, but the record is 1 hour 47 minutes and 9 seconds for a team of 6 persons. – Joubarc Oct 26 '11 at 14:57
Any other place besides amazon where i can buy this set for a lesser price? I remember when it was launched, it was sold for $250. Not sure why they stopped manufacturing this and why the prices sky rocketed. Also, is it still worth spending $1k for such a architecture. – vinayvasyani Aug 9 '12 at 13:32

The Super Star Destroyer, with 3152 pieces, is nearly 50 inches (124.5 cm) long and weighs nearly 8 pounds (3.5kg):

While the Ultimate Collectors Edition Millennium Falcon had over 5000 pieces, and was 33" long, 22" wide and 8" tall! (84cm long x 56cm wide x 21cm tall), and was officially advertised as the biggest set ever made - it was almost exactly to Mini Figure scale as well.

In terms of height, I think the Eiffel Tower is unmatched, standing at 1 meter tall on a base of 50x50cm. When looking at the picture below, keep in mind a cat can easily pass under the arches:

The parts count, at 3428, isn't too bad either.

I'm not sure a cat will be any more interested in passing under its arches than using it as a scratching post though ;) – BoltClock Oct 27 '11 at 18:34
Ok, maybe not so much passing under than deciding it's a funny place to take a nap. – Joubarc Oct 27 '11 at 19:17
This set is almost impossible to move. You have to have a board and steady arms. – LarsTech Nov 9 '11 at 16:15
@LarsTech it's not that bad, actually, as the three sections are separable.There are only 4 connecting studs between each section, the rest are tiles. – Joubarc Nov 9 '11 at 17:53
Unfortunately, I did not pay attention to the laws of gravity the first time I tried to move it. It did not end well. :-( – LarsTech Nov 9 '11 at 18:00
