The most expensive LEGO Ideas sets of all time – August 2022

LEGO Ideas 21335 Motorised Lighthouse has been revealed, slotting it neatly into the list of most expensive LEGO Ideas sets ever made.

As for how this build stacks up to previous LEGO Ideas sets, it’s one of the most expensive yet.

The most recent LEGO Ideas set to be revealed, 21335 Motorised Lighthouse, has a much lower part count than you might expect for the price with 2,065 pieces for £264.99 / $299.99 / €299.99. That’s thanks in no small part thanks to the electronic elements and the unique Fresnel Lens brick, but batteries aren’t included.
