Biggest Private Collection Legos

A toy-mad collector and Star Wars fan has amassed Britain's biggest private collection of Lego - containing over two million bricks.

Darren Smith, 32, started collecting the colourful building blocks aged five when he was given a set by his parents as a Christmas present. He was so taken with Lego he carried on collecting it all his life and his mammoth collection now fills his large garage and a specially converted loft. Darren, a data analyst, says his favourites Lego figures are the Star Wars characters - particularly C3PO and Darth Vadar. He also has over 2,000 sets including pirates, police, cowboys, astronauts, Vikings and super heroes such as Indiana Jones, Spiderman and Batman.

He has more than 2,000,000 bricks in his incredible collection - eclipsing the previous British record of 500,000. Read more about Darrens collection here.
