Who doesn’t like LEGOs? No matter whether you’re 5 or 75, you can enjoy building cool things with those little blocks.
While LEGO sets used to cost only a few dollars, their prices have been steadily increasing over the years. Now, although most LEGO sets are still affordable, there are many sets with exorbitant prices.
So what are the most expensive LEGO sets?
The LEGO Taj Mahal is available for an eminently affordable $2700. For that, you get the most pieces ever in a LEGO set: about 6000. The set is over a foot tall, and looks a lot like the real Taj Mahal. But that’s not what makes it valuable.
The Taj Mahal set is discontinued and is very hard to find in unopened form.
The LEGO Creator Carousel was a bargain when it came out, and even after it was discontinued, you used to be able to get one cheaply. But that is no longer the case.
If you want this LEGO set today, it will cost you $3500. The set isn’t particularly big, and at around 3000 pieces, it is not one of the largest sets LEGO made. Nevertheless, this set captured the hearts of many because of its spinning top and colorful lighting.
The most expensive non one-off LEGO set available is the Collector’s edition Star Wars Millennium Falcon. LEGO makes several Millennium Falcon sets for less than $200, but this collectible version is no longer made, and is now selling for a whopping $6000.
What do you get for that? The set is one of the largest LEGO sets ever made, with over 5000 pieces, and a finished size of nearly 6 cubic feet. Its weight tops out at over 20 pounds.
Are any of these super expensive LEGO sets worth it? There are plenty of die hard fans who are willing to shell out a month’s salary to get them.
