LEGO Star Wars 75313 AT-AT and Luke’s Lightsaber are fetching silly money online

To the surprise of probably nobody, both LEGO Star Wars 75313 AT-AT and 40483 Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber are selling for silly money online.

The newest Ultimate Collector Series set has already sold out in the US, and sealed copies are now commanding high prices on eBay – while its accompanying gift-with-purchase, which was only available across the Black Friday weekend to anyone buying 75313 AT-AT, is selling for inflated prices on both sides of the pond.

In the UK, ‘sold’ listings for 40483 Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber have topped out as high as £200, with most copies of the buildable hilt – the second in a newly-established series, following 2020’s 5006290 Yoda’s Lightsaber – going for roughly £140-150. That’s a decent chunk of 75313 AT-AT’s £699.99 cost recouped for those enterprising sellers, but it’s still a very high price for a pretty small (if great) set.

It’s a similar story in the US, with multiple listings selling for as much as $200. And in Germany, one attendee of the LEGO Store midnight openings has managed to fetch an eye-watering €1,750 – or roughly £1,489 – for everything they picked up on the night, including 75313 AT-AT, 40483 Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber, 40451 Tatooine Homestead, 40484 Santa’s Front Yard and a certificate of authenticity.

Elsewhere, 75313 AT-AT’s scarcity stateside – where it won’t be restocked until ‘after the holidays’ – has led to prices for the UCS set similarly skyrocketing on eBay, with some selling for as much as $1,150 (a full $350 above its RRP). But if a 6,785-piece Imperial walker is what little Timmy wants under the tree this year, well, someone’s clearly footing the bill.

If you want to be among the first to know when 75313 AT-AT is available to buy at retail again in the US, sign up to Brick Fanaticsstock alerts. It’s still available in the UK for now, but briefly dropped to back order last night, so could yet vanish before Christmas.

It also might not, given it hasn’t sold out thus far – but if it does, expect similarly-crazy prices on eBay this side of the pond.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
