Top 10 Most Expensive & Valuable LEGO Sets of All Time Ever Released In The World

In this article, we’ll look at the top 10 most expensive and valuable LEGO sets of all time ever released in the world. In regards to most expensive, we look at the original LEGO manufacturer retail price. The ranking is based on USD retail price. We do not consider LEGO secondary market prices. Another thing to note is that there is inflation as well. A $300 retail price LEGO set in 2005 is probably going to retail at a lot higher price in 2021 if its a similar sized LEGO set. However, we did not consider the inflation in the rankings. We just looked at the exact retail price dollar value that LEGO priced the set at.

Some of these sets are still available at LEGO Shop at Home (USA | Canada | UK | Australia). Though, quite a few of them are no longer available through the official retail channels where you can get them at retail price. Secondary marketplaces usually have these large and rare LEGO sets priced quite high unfortunately.

It features the massive re-creation in LEGO form of the famous Millennium Falcon from the Star Wars universe. This is by far one of the most expensive LEGO sets ever created. It surpasses the price of even the LEGO Creator Expert 10276 Colosseum despite it being a bigger set than the Millennium Falcon. At $799.99 USD, the LEGO Star Wars 75192 Millennium Falcon UCS is definitely at a heavy price tag.

Like the LEGO Star Wars 75192 Millennium Falcon UCS set, the LEGO Star Wars 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer UCS has no minifigures as well. However, there are lots of details.
