Guide: Valuable Lego Minifigures

Lets be honest, the best thing about Lego sets are the minifigures. Am I right? Minifigures are small, and come in a variety of different kinds; they can also be customised. Lego minifigures are incredibly easy to collect as they are easy to store and don’t take up much room. They are also collected by fans of the various licenses Lego have used in the past. For these reasons it is obvious why there are some really valuable Lego minifigures. In this post I hope to point out some hidden gems in your Lego collection that could make a pretty penny.

Lego Store UK Exclusives

When some Lego stores opened up in UK locations they created custom minifigures of famous people from that area. These were exclusive to the particular shops and therefore very rare. These are the sets with celebrities, as there are other sets like these with generic figures in them.

Collectable Minifigure Series

Since 2010 Lego have been releasing a new series of 16 figures that are all collectable in their own right. Since the first series they have gained popularity, so much so, that people are willing to spend a pretty penny so they can collect them all, especially the earlier series.

Series 1 Figures

Between £5 to £10 each, with the set selling for between £150 to £230 (sealed packs).

Mr Gold (Series 10)

Mr Gold

There were only 5,000 Mr Golds made so the price is obviously steep.

£325 to £1,200 (Sealed) – Worth more than its weight in gold.

Star Wars is one of the most collected movie franchises ever, and probably the one with the most merchandise. The Lego Star Wars range is no exception, with some figures being worth a fortune.

All of these valuable Lego minifigures are in British pounds. They may be worth more or less in America. All the figures are best if they are sealed, but are still worth something when they are loose. Some of the price guides are fairly broad mainly due to the condition, and the fluctuating in price due to the different trends. These prices are all taken from the UK eBay. They are all figures that have sold this year, so there are even rarer figures, so rare that they are not on eBay. I want to keep this updated to keep you up to date with the current prices and desirable minifigures. I hope this has been informative, and opened your eyes to some valuable Lego minifigures you could find and flip.
