COBI King Tiger PzKpfw VI Set 2540
The COBI King Tiger PzKpfw VI Set features 1000 highly detailed brick parts and colorful, easy to read detailed instructions. The COBI Konigstiger 2540 parts all work perfectly with LEGO and you will be impressed with LEGO quality of COBI sets. COBI Sets differ in that they offer many more pieces and the majority of the parts are unique to COBI. You can learn more about the similarities and differences between COBI and LEGO here.
The new COBI King Tiger VI should include 2 figures and all the markings are pad printed so stickers are not necessary. This is a new COBI Königstiger 2540 set and should not be confused with he prior COBI Tiger II set here. The COBI King Tiger II will have some very detailed parts including new, more realistic side skirting parts. There are also numerous accessories much like their upcoming Sherman Easy eight set. This is an encouraging trend that we are seeing in new COBI Tank sets and we cannot wait to see how this new COBI King Tiger II turns out once we have more than just digital renders. We believe the set will be available something this fall.

Both collectors and military bricks enthusiasts will get hours of enjoyment from this COBI King Tiger PzKpfw VI Set set however due to the complex nature of COBI sets and the detail we are seeing in the images, it may be more appropriate for children and collectors over the age of 10. Whether you are buying to display or play, Cobi Brick sets will not disappoint. Ships quickly from Billings, MT USA with tracking number.

King Tiger PzKpfw VI History:
The Tiger II is a German heavy tank of the Second World War. The final official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B, often shortened to Tiger B. The ordnance inventory designation was Sd.Kfz. 182. It is also known under the informal name Königstiger (the German name for the Bengal tiger), often translated literally as Royal Tiger, or somewhat incorrectly as King Tiger by Allied soldiers
The Tiger II was the successor to the Tiger I, combining the latter’s thick armour with the armour sloping used on the Panther medium tank. The tank weighed almost 70 tonnes, and was protected by 100 to 185 mm (3.9 to 7.3 in) of armour to the front. It was armed with the long barrelled 8.8 cm KwK 43 L/71 anti-tank cannon. The chassis was also the basis for the Jagdtiger turretless Jagdpanzer anti-tank vehicle.
The Tiger II was issued to heavy tank battalions of the Army and the Waffen-SS. It was first used in combat by 503rd Heavy Panzer Battalion during the Allied invasion of Normandy on 11 July 1944 on the Eastern Front, the first unit to be outfitted with the Tiger II was the 501st Heavy Panzer Battalion, which by 1 September 1944 listed 25 Tiger IIs operational

Above and beyond amazing set. It’s really worth it for every pieces you’re getting. I recommend getting it while you still can.

This Kingtiger is by far the best set Cobi has done. The detail and proportions are fantastic ! It is worth every penny and it was a pleasure to build. I highly recommend this set!

Cobi designs some very nice military models. The tanks all look representational with “working functions” tracks are iffy but who cares the ships are by far the best. Sturdy and very easy to follow along with the directions.. I have the Missouri from a different vendor and it can’t compare to Cobi. 3 sections held together with tiny pins. Pick it wrong and you’ll have 1500 pieces everywhere. Plus the deck parts don’t match up. Looking forward to Cobi bringing all the battleships back along with the Titanic. No offense Karine I found one on Ebay at the right price. Cobi gets high 9’s for all their offerings and Karine and gang at Warbricks are the best. Good luck in the future.

Great set! Love the tricolor camouflage for this amazing set. Much improved from the older version. As always this model was an enjoyable build, all 1000 pieces. Highly recommend for any German tank fan.

This was my first Cobi set. I was so pleasantly surprised by it. The model was larger than expected for the price, and was really fun to make. I also really appreciate all the detailing that the set has. Great experience!

I got this for my oldest son as a Christmas present. He had no trouble putting it together. It is a cool looking build and he was very happy to add it to his collection.
