10 valuable LEGO minifigures that you might actually own.
24th March 2021
LEGO minifigures are highly collectable with some going for thousands of pounds. While they may be unobtainable for the majority of us we've come up with a list of minifigures that you actually have a chance of owning that can still fetch a pretty penny.
If you were buying LEGO sets from 2000-2010 you may have some of these lying around the house.
#10 - Greedo - £35.00
The original Greedo is one of my all time favourite LEGO minifigures. The iconic head piece and colour scheme makes him a standout in any display.
He came with the Mos Eisley Cantina set in 2004 and today a good condition example is worth around £35.00
#9 - Professor Remus Lupin - £35.00
Professor Lupin has appeared in quite a few Harry Potter sets over the years but the 2004 Shrieking Shack was the only one where he's in his Werewolf form.
If you're looking to buy this minifigure make sure you find one with the original cape and ideally unfrayed.
#8 - Queen Amidala - £55.00
It took 13 years after the first Star Wars set, for LEGO to release one that contained a Queen Amidala minifigure, and to date it's still the only one.
The Gungan Sub (9499) was on shelves in 2012 and also included Jar Jar Binks, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn.
Queen Amidala has a unique leg and head piece molds and can be picked up for £55 to £60.
#7 - Spider-Man 2 - Balaclava Face - £60.00
#6 - Velma Dinkley £60.00
In 2015 LEGO released 5 Scooby Doo themed sets, with Velma only appearing in the most expensive set in the range, Mystery Mansion.
The sets reportedly didn't sell as well as expected which just adds to the rarity of this minifigure.
The Mystery Mansion retailed for £69.99 at the time and you'll be paying nearly that amount just to get this minifigure.
#5 - Darth Revan - £65.00
Darth Revan is the first and only minifigure from this list to have come from a polybag rather than a set.
Darth Revan is a mysterious fan favourite character but he's never appeared in any of the films. This elusiveness has probably contributed to his insane price of £65 currently.
#4 - Watto £70.00
In 1999 LEGO release its first ever Star Wars themed set and from 1999 to 2001 came a range of sets that revolved around Episode I and the Original Trilogy. One of those early sets was Watto's Junkyard in 2001 containing the Watto minifigure.
#3 - Professor Dolores Umbridge £75.00
You're probably noticing a theme by now with most of the expensive minifigures coming from the Star Wars and Harry Potter sets.
Umbridge appears in the 3rd edition of Hogwarts Castle in 2007 and until 2018 this was the only time she'd been made into a minifigure.
#2 - Davy Jones £80.00
Davy Jones appeared in the 2011 Black Pearl set (4184) which tied in with the release of the 4th film in the franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
There were some other expensive minifigures in that set but Davy Jones is the more desirable. Expect to pay a minimum of £80 to add him to your collection.
#1 - Boba Fett (Cloud City) £500.00
Boba Fett isn't quite the Holy Grail in one's LEGO collection but he comes close. Fett appeared in the Cloud City set and was the first ever minifigure to feature printed arms.
The price for this fig continues to rise year on year and you'll be paying a minimum of £500 in 2021.
