Literally all of the prosthetics, weapons, armour, suits, etc. They made a driveable Warthog for Blomkamp's ditched Halo movie. There are ten foot tall hyper realistic sculptures of WWI vets in Wellington's museum that they painstakingly made.

... yeah, they've done some props!
The largest film prop ever in fact

Prop, not character, though.

A dead one, which makes it a prop.

I know that seems pedantic, but on a call sheet that would be listed under props, while creatures would be under effects and cast depending on how the creature is realised.

The giant dead Kong at the end of the '76 movie would be a prop, for example, while Rambaldi's full size animatronic is an effect.

(Also keep in mind I've no idea if it actually is the largest prop, but I wouldn't be surprised.)

If we are being pedantic, I've seen enough call sheets in my time to see animatronic creatures, especially small ones, referred to as props. I have also seen situations that large pieces like the dead Mumakil, are built on set wagons and listed under set and/or set dressing. I've seen props like large rocks appear under both. There's so much call sheet variation to conclude in design and content that it is all left up to discretion and situational.

Alas, regardless, I doubt the OP was looking for such a tangent we went off on. :)

Definitely, but I still think the Mumakil is bigger than a lot of the examples you gave. Thing was feckin' huge.

I think the Rambaldi Kong gives it a good run for its money. 

(annoyingly, trying to find out "biggest prop" just tells you about ones that sold for the most at auction)

Hmm. You may be right. Out of all my comparisons, Rambaldi Kong may be its greatest challenger. It's hard to be certain without dimensions.

Off the top of my head, I believe I've seen a couple massive practical Trojan Horses built for the silver screen that might well rival the Mumakil. Hmm. There's been massive exterior spaceships only designed for boarding and unboarding. There's Cameron's Titanic. Those statues in Raiders of the Lost Ark were extremely large but don't have the mass. Hmm. It's interesting to brainstorm.
