There aren’t a lot of children’s toys that can say they are still relevant in today’s market even after being around for more than 85 years already. Legos have been around for so long, yet they still manage to adapt and relate to all age groups and to all niches. That’s really what makes Legos the classic toys that they really are. Many people collect Legos for various reasons, and the company has responded by giving all Lego enthusiasts many Lego sets that are really worth creating or collecting. Here are some of those sets that are also the most expensive in the world.
It wouldn’t have been smart for Lego not to jump on the rebooted Star Wars bandwagon. As a matter of fact, Lego actually has several Star Wars sets that vary in sizes and prices. The most expensive and insanely challenging of all those sets is the Millennium Falcon. Priced at just under $800, this set has a total of 7,541 pieces. It’s the most detailed and largest Falcon model Lego has ever created. It features some of our favorite character minifigures: Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and C-3PO. The Millennium Falcon is the ultimate Lego set for the biggest Star Wars fan, and it’s also going to be one of the most challenging sets anyone could ever put together.
