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.
