Ridiculously Expensive Star Wars LEGO Sets
Editor’s Note : This article has been republished from 2009 in honor of Star Wars Day, thus some of the prices may be off.
Star Wars + LEGO = A Geek’s Dream. And in this economy, no one can afford this stuff. But that won’t stop us from drooling over it. Let’s cut to the chase:
With 3104 pieces and 3 feet long, this is the daddy of the Star Wars LEGO universe. Costs between $430 and $1000. Or, you get get a much cheaper one here.
I’m finding this going for between $600 and $1000, probably because it’s a ‘retired’ item. Regardless, it isn’t exactly the Millennium Falcon so no clue who’d drop this kind of coin on a ship like this.
Okay, now we’re talking. This MUST-HAVE goes from $400-$900. But if you don’t want this one, get this one:
Costs between $400 and $500. I think the first one is better. I found another one for about $800: Millennium Falcon Set 7190.
Yeah buddy! The Death Star includes 24 minifigures and droids, and even the trash compactor! Costs between $400 and $1000. Of course, this one is for playing inside the Death Star. However, you can also get this one:
I suppose this one is just for blowing up other planets, not playing rescue-the-princess. Costs between $260 and $430.
For you Lando Calrissian lovers, get your heavenly Cloud City, which features 7 minifigures for $320-$700.
The Darth Maul LEGO Bust. Exactly. $380-$530.
Costs between $160 and $400, but there’s one problem with this. Jabba the Hutt is hideous for a LEGO. Let’s take a closer look:
Worst. Jabba. Ever. (Psst… buy him here)
Here’s a more affordable one, complete with Jabba and Princess Leia: Jabba’s Palace. And don’t forget Jabba’s Prize (with Boba Fett, Han Solo in carbonite, and an ugly Gamorrean Guard) and Jabba’s Message (C-3P0, R2-D2 and Bib Fortuna).
Anything involving the AT-AT is cool. Seeing it for sale between $120 and $500. You can also get a Motorized Walking AT-AT.
Seeing this 14-inch Jedi Master between $175 and $326.
I like this because it comes with four ships, and Darth Vader. Costs between $180-$285. But I gotta say, this one looks cooler:
Running between $300 and $700.
There are many other really expensive Star Wars LEGO sets (find them here), but these are the most interesting I could find.
Star Wars Minifigures
Now, let’s move onto the more affordable options… the minifigures sold separately.
C-3PO (Golden, Limited Edition of 10,000)
It’s golden! It’s limited edition! It’s a must-have!
Is it wrong that I think even the LEGO version of this is hot? You can also get her with a lot more clothes on (in her Hoth outfit).
Even the LEGO version of Maul sucks.
This one rocks… just like the original toys, you’ve gotta get a bunch of these and line them up behind Vader. Also get Stormtrooper (Black), Clone Trooper (Red), Kashyyyk Trooper, Scout Trooper, or Snowtrooper.
I wish they made a whole Wookie army of LEGO characters.
Something about this guy is really cool, though he’s just a minor character. If you get him, then you should also get Emperor Palpatine. Or, you can get both the emperor and Vader in this set called Final Duel I.
Or, if you’re too cheap to buy the gold one, get the ordinary one. This figure is featured in the image, LEGO C3PO, I’m Your Father
And if you get the C-3PO, you’ve gotta get R2-D2.
I love the Ewoks, but this was the only one I could find. Wish there were more.
Whoever this guy is… Also get him in his Tatooine outfit.
Han Solo (Brown Legs with Jacket)
Yoda – LEGO Star Wars Figure
Obi Wan Kenobi (Old Ben)
Jar Jar Binks
Believe it or not, there are many more that you can find on Amazon.
Now, let’s watch some cool LEGO game video:
