Top 10 Most Expensive & Valuable LEGO Sets Ever (September 2022 Update)

Update: This article has been updated as of September 26th, 2022. Regular retail prices have also been updated to reflect the new Summer August 2022 Price Hike. This article now includes the top 18 most expensive and valuable LEGO sets (up from top 10). 18+ LEGO Star Wars 75331 The Razor Crest UCS Ultimate Collector Series has been added to the list now. This set releases in October 2022 and contains 6187 pieces.

In this article, we’ll look at the top 18 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.

Shown below is LEGO Creator Expert 10294 Titanic. The set was released in November 2021 and it has 9090 pieces.
