In the following investment analyses, you will learn why we assume a good performance and what the investment potentials of the respective sets are.

1.Lego® Ideas 21324 123 Sesame Street

Ernie, Bert or the Cookie Monster - the characters of Sesame Street, first broadcast in 1972, are still very popular today. With theLego® Ideas 21324 123 Sesame Street Lego® specifically addresses the AFOL (Adult Fans of Lego) target group, but also fans of the cult series. This target group already accounts for 1/10 of the annual turnover of the Danish block manufacturer and is considered to be a strong buyer.

Sesame Street fans as a target group

  • Theme: Ideas 
  • RRP: 119,99€
  • Number of parts: 1.367
  • 6 exclusive minifigures
  • POV: 301,35€
  • Parts price: 8,78 ct/piece

The 21324 123 Sesame Street is available at a fair RRP of 119,99€. The part out value is very good in relation to the RRP and the average part price is favourable at 8.78 ct/part. The highlight of the set are the exclusive minifigures included. They are unique in their kind and, according to Bricklink, already make up more than ⅖ of the RRP at around €50. 

The 21324 123 Sesame Street is a D2C set (Direct to Customer). D2C sets are often only distributed by Lego® itself during the 3 months. At a later date, they are also available from exclusive partners such as Amazon or Galeria. Because of the exclusive marketing, Sesame Street can rarely be bought with discounts. It is a good idea to buy Lego sets of the Ideas theme in combination with VIP points and GWPs. In the case of double VIP point campaigns, you even get 10% of the purchase price credited in the form of VIP points.

2.​​Lego® Star Wars 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser

Star Wars is one of the most popular Lego® themed worlds ever. The 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser is known from the 2nd season of the Disney series Star Wars: The Mandalorian. The Lego Star Wars set was released in August 2021 and is expected to go EOL in 2022.

Investment potential through exclusive minifigures

  • Theme: Star Wars 
  • RRP: 159,99€
  • Number of parts: 1,336
  • 6 minifigures, 2 of them exclusive
  • POV: 335,20€
  • Parts price: 11,98 ct/part

The 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser has a Star Wars licence, which is a positive feature for an investment. The RRP of €159.99 is acceptable in relation to the part out value. Typical for a licensed Lego set is the high parts price of almost 12 ct/part. The Star Wars set is sold exclusively by Lego® and some exclusive partners. 

From an investment point of view, the fact that this is the first Lego Light Cruiser is positive. As mentioned at the beginning, the Light Cruiser is an integral part of the second season of "Star Wars: The Mandalorian". The series is available to stream exclusively on Disney+. The series is known worldwide and is very popular with fans of the Star Wars saga. Accordingly, the sales market is large, which is positive for the time after EOL, as a high demand can be assumed.

Another highlight of the Lego Star Wars set are the included minifigures. The 2 exclusive minifigures have a value of €80.30 according to Bricklink. With the remaining 4 non-exclusive minifigures, the set has a total value of 122.46€. This is more than ¾ of the RRP. 

Due to the very good key data of the Light Cruiser, we assume a very good performance after EOL. With regard to the exclusive minifigures, however, the risk of a re-release of the minifigures included in the set must be taken into account. In addition, Lego may re-release the exclusive minifigures in another set at a later date. 

Due to the exclusive marketing, the 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser can rarely be bought below RRP. Buying below RRP is possible at Lego.com in combination with VIP points or GWPs. How to buy exclusive and part-exclusive Lego sets at best prices, we have summarised for you in theGuide Buy Lego cheap .

In selecting our Top 5 Lego® investment sets, we are convinced of a good to very good performance. In exceptional cases, it can also happen that sets increase in value only slowly or not at all for any reason. However, the past has shown that such cases are an exception. 

As a highlight, we have prepared 3 more Lego sets that only just missed our top 5. Of course, we don't want to withhold these from you. In the following, we briefly present the respective sets and share our assessment of their investment suitability..

Lego® Creator Expert 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van

After a short market run of not quite 1 ½ years, the 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van leaves the trade. Despite a long availability of more than 9 years, the predecessor model has convinced with a good value development until today. Whether this scenario will also apply to the 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van remains exciting. This model is also one of the most famous cars in history.
