The LEGO Group is home to one of the most expensive hobbies on the market, but which of its many sets come in as the most costly models?
We’ve already recounted the largest LEGO sets of all time, so you might think that this list would be fairly similar. Fortunately, you’d be wrong as it turns out when it comes to LEGO, a higher price doesn’t necessarily mean more pieces.
6 – Harry Potter 75978 Diagon Alley
Our journey begins in the Wizarding World with one of the more recent sets on this list. 75978 Diagon Alley includes a total of 5544 for £369.99 / $399.99 / €399.99 and 14 minifigures.
The model features some of the most iconic locations from the magical street such as an enchanted ice cream shop to a store of jokes, pranks and other knick-knacks.
5 – Technic 42100 Liebherr R 9800 Excavator
At 4,108 bricks, most of the price comes from the many motors and electronics stored inside the build, which operate the colossal machinery in the biggest motorised LEGO set yet.
4 – Star Wars 75159 Death Star
This spot on the list belongs to Star Wars 75159 Death Star, which remakes 10188 Death Star to include updated pieces and minifigures. Otherwise, very little changed between the models, meaning the 4,016 piece set still sits at the fourth most expensive LEGO set.
3 – Creator Expert 10276 Colosseum
Before we head off to a galaxy far, far away for our final two entries, the third most expensive LEGO set visits an ancient location that’s a little closer to home at £449.99 / $549.99 / €499.99.
2 – Star Wars 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer
At £649.99 / $699.99 / €699.99 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer includes 4,784 bricks and two minifigures, making it the same price as 75192 Millenium Falcon in certain regions, and significantly less in others.
Measuring 110cm long, one of the most costly LEGO sets ever released almost certainly needs a shelving unit to itself, maybe even a whole room. However, whether you choose 75192 Millennium Falcon or 75292 Imperial Star Destroyer, you’ll surely be the envy of your fellow builders.
1 – Star Wars 75192 Millennium Falcon
The final two positions are tied for first with two Star Wars models that cost an eye-watering amount of cash. 75192 Millenium Falcon features 7,541 pieces and seven minifigures from two of the franchise’s trilogies.
Costing £649.99 / $799.99 / €799.99, the massive model makes for a remarkable display piece, as can be seen in our review and will likely remain on shelves, and in the minds of builders for years to come.
