9 Most Expensive Lego Sets
What are some of the Most Expensive Lego Sets?
Lego is known for its toys' quality and capacity to encourage imaginative play. Building a Lego set can take hours upon hours for aficionados and children alike—but for collectors, it can also represent an investment. Price is one thing that sets Legos apart from all other toys. No matter how old you are, you will never get bored with them. They say that a true Lego fan is a kid at heart, which couldn't be more true. These toys have been around for more than 60 years and have seen multiple generations grow up with them.
Here are nine of the most expensive Lego sets:
Millennium Falcon - $799.99
The Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon set is the most expensive Lego set to date. This is not unusual, as Lego's Star Wars offerings tend to be on the high side because of the theme's popularity. It costs almost $800 to get this 1,254-piece set, which includes six Minifigures and a copy of the original Star Wars movie on Blu-Ray that you can watch while you build it. The Falcon is known for its detailed interior and exterior design, so it's no surprise that this set is so popular and pricey.
The Millennium Falcon set isn't only for kids; adults will have fun building this impressive piece. And if you're feeling generous and want to give something truly spectacular as a gift, this is it—the Millennium Falcon would make any Star Wars fan jump for joy.
AT-AT - $799.99
The LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport) set is one of the most expensive Lego sets ever sold, retailing at $799.99. The set includes 6 Minifigures: Luke Skywalker, General Veers, 2 AT-AT Drivers, and 2 Snowtroopers. The set also includes five guns, a bear trap, and an accessory to mount the guns on the back of the AT-AT.
The Minifigures are quite detailed and realistic; no stickers are used. The AT-AT has a cockpit where two Minifigures can sit side by side to pilot it. It also has a compartment in the back with a seat for a third Minifigure to man the rear-facing gun turret. The underside of the AT-AT features a storage compartment where Luke Skywalker's lightsaber can be stored, along with other accessories such as extra ammunition for the guns or tools for exploring icy.
Imperial Star Destroyer - $699.99
As with Lego sets in general, there's no denying that with the Imperial Star Destroyer priced at $699.99, you're getting a high-quality product for your money: made from strong ABS plastic and composed of innovative interlocking pieces that make building easier than ever before, this set will create a sturdy display piece that can withstand years of play. The only potential issue is that this model does not come with its own Death Star—you'll have to provide your own for the action figures to destroy!
Titanic - $629.99
The Lego Titanic costs $629.99. This set was released in 2008 and contains over 9,000 pieces. Despite its high price, this set is still very popular and has received excellent reviews from critics and consumers alike. The set includes three detailed decks with a variety of rooms as well as two mini-figures representing passengers and crew members. It also includes a detailed replica of the ship's hull and a display stand that shows the ship in full scale when assembled.
The Colosseum - $549.99
This Lego Colosseum set is one of the biggest in the world, with 9,036 pieces. It's easy to lift and turn and doesn't take up much space, making it great for conventions or parties. Thanks to the included storage box, the pieces are also easy to store. This is a great set for any lover of history or architecture who wants to have a miniature version of one of Rome's most famous landmarks on their desk or in their living room. The set includes two statues and an Emperor Nero Minifigure, as well as a plaque that details the history of the Colosseum.
D11 Bulldozer - $449.99
In the D11 Bulldozer, this element is used to connect two bulldozer sections, a bulldozer blade, and a large dump truck section. It's all very cool, but what makes this set stand out is the price: $449.99 USD.
This set is definitely not for children, but it's more for adults who are still fans of LEGO bricks and want to enjoy quality 'me time focusing on their passion. Like the real Cat bulldozer, this model is built in modular sections that can be easily removed and reassembled. And like other high-end sets such as the DC Super Hero Girls Batgirl Batjet Chase, each section comes with its own instruction booklet.
Hogwarts Castle - $399.99
The last time LEGO made a Hogwarts Castle set, the whole thing cost $269.99 and contained 4,080 pieces. The new one costs $399.99 and has 6,020 pieces—more than three times as many! This set contains enough bricks to make almost twenty-four of the smaller sets from the previous version, which is more than seven times more pieces than are in the smallest current set. How do you even store something like this?
This set is amazing—it's got everything from multiple floors of rooms, including the awesome Dumbledore's Office complete with chocolate frog cards, to different rooms for potions class or Quidditch practice, to Hagrid's Hut and the Whomping Willow. There are plenty of Minifigures to go around, including four Harrys, six Hermiones, three Rons..., plus there are three boats and five owls!
Diagon Alley - $399.99
The Lego Harry Potter Diagon Alley (45300) is one of Lego's biggest sets to date, and it's also the most expensive at $399.99, not including tax and shipping. This set is based on the movie of the same name, but there are a few differences from the movie version: the train station has been redesigned to include a new brick-built clock tower; Gringotts bank has moved to another building, and Hagrid's house is now connected to Ollivanders Wand Shop. The set includes 14 mini-figures.
Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 - $379.99
The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is one of the most expensive Lego pieces ever made and features a detailed interior, tinted windows, and an opening rear hatch. This particular set was introduced as part of the Lego Speed Champions Series 6 range and is based on the real Lamborghini Sian FKP-37 concept car.
While there are many expensive Lego sets, these are some of the most extraordinary. They're more than just an extravagant gimmick; they're remarkable in their ingenious designs and the amount of detail that went into making them. As long as Legos continue to hold the appeal to children that they do, it will be interesting to see what kind of new projects Lego decides to undertake next or if the company will dig deeper into its archives for reimaginings of old favorites.
