The Top 10 Most Expensive Lego® Minifigures Ever

🗓 Sun, 03 Dec 2023

Collecting Legos® can be a pretty expensive hobby. And by expensive, we mean REALLY expensive.

Lego® has produced over 4 billion minifigures as of 2022. Many of these figures have been made in very limited quantities and have resale value that can exceed a whopping thousand dollars especially those tied-up to a movie like the Lego® Star Wars sets. A recent study found that the market for secondhand Lego® rises in value by 11% annually – outperforming gold, art, and wine investments.

Adult fans of Legos (AFOLs) have proven time and again that investing in Lego is a smart and lucrative investment, due to the Lego brand's strong and loyal following. They have forecasted that it will not decline anytime soon.

So, if you are eyeing some expensive minifigures to include in your collection or just simply wondering about which Legos® are the most expensive, check out these 10 most expensive Lego® minifigures. If you alredy have a collection of Lego Sets and you want to keep track of their value you should have a look at the free Brickfact App. You can add all your sets and monitor the price development daily.

1. Solid Gold 14K C-3PO (2007)

If you're a fan of Lego® and Star Wars, then you have probably guessed this one right. The most expensive Lego® Minifigure is the Solid Gold 14K C-3PO coming in at around $200,000! Released in 2007 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars franchise, this rare minifigure is prized by collectors for its exceptional rarity - only five were ever made! And unlike other rare collectibles like Pokémon cards, these precious metal C-3PO Minifigures weren't available for sale... but rather given away as contest prizes in early 2008. So, if you can get your hands on one of these coveted pieces, consider yourself lucky! However, you'd have a higher chance of finding an actual gold nugget digging in your backyard than finding this mini figure for sale on the secondary market.

2. Ninjago Movie Wooden Wu Movie Prop (2017)

In 2nd place is the Ninjago Movie Wooden Wu Movie Prop. The Lego® franchise has become increasingly popular over the last several decades, branching out into video games and films. One of its most popular series, Ninjago, was translated into a feature film in 2017. The Lego® Ninjago Movie combined CGI and stop-motion animation to bring Lego® Minifigures to life. And one of these figures – a delicately carved wooden Wu – is valued at more than $104,500, making it one of the priciest Lego® Minifigures in existence.

3. White Gold 18K R2-D2 (2018)

Still in the Star Wars theme is the White Gold 18K R2-D2. This minifigure is estimated to be worth over $39,000 costing more than its sterling silver counterpart, and its value is only likely to increase in the next few decades. So, if you're willing to shell out almost $40,000 for this golden droid, act fast – there are plenty of other Star Wars fans who would love to own it too!

You can only get your hands on this one- of-a-kind minifigure by entering the raffle at the end of the event.

In 2018, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the franchise, Lego® produced two platinum R2-D2 minifigures. As you may have noticed, many of the most valuable Lego® minifigures are promotional Star Wars items. This figure is no exception, with an estimated value of around $33,000, it is one of the most expensive Lego® figures out there.
