The Top 10 Most Expensive LEGO Star Wars UCS sets
20th November 2021
LEGO has released hundreds and hundreds of Star Wars sets over the years, it's a cash cow that they just keep on milking. However out of all of the set the UCS ones (Ultimate Collectors Series) have the highest RRP and are designed to appeal to AFOL's and die hard fans of the films.
Today I'm going to go over the top 10 most expensive UCS sets and how much they are worth today.
The prices and images for these sets have been taken from bricklink.com, my go to place for buying new and used LEGO.
#10 - Imperial Shuttle - £585.00
The first entry on this list is the Imperial Shuttle, one of the most iconic Star Wars shuttles with it's 3 massive wings.
It says a lot that the cheapest set on this top 10 list is just shy of £600.00.
#9 - Super Star Destroyer - £700.00
The SSD, Super Star Destroyer or the Super Sexy Destroyer as I call it hehe, is in my opinion one of the best looking UCS sets and measures as staggering 58.5cm from nose to tail.
If you consider this set's RRP was £349.99 back in 2011 it's value hasn't increased that much. A 150% to 200% price increase is what you'd expect to pay for most sets after they've retired.
#8 - Vader's TIE Advanced - £800.00
#7 - TIE Interceptor - £880.00
The TIE Interceptor along with the X-wing Fighter which also appears on this list became the first ever LEGO UCS Star Wars sets when they were released on 1st July 2000.
The dark box art must have made for a formidable site when it was on the shelves of LEGO stores over 20 years ago.
#6 - X-wing Fighter - £880.00
As we just mentioned this and the TIE Interceptor jointly hold the crown of being the first UCS Star Wars sets. Although the X-wing cost more when it was released compared to the TIE Interceptor ($150 to $100 respectively), the X-wing was on shelves for 2 months longer when it retired on 28th February 2002.
Both will set you back just under £900 if bought new which when you consider they were the first in the series is quite a good price compared to other entries on this list.
#5 - Rebel Blockade Runner - £800.00 - £1,000
#4 - Imperial Star Destroyer £950.00 - £1,250.00
The original Imperial Star Destroyer was released on 6th December 2002 and was available for 5 years until 31st December 2007.
This set is notorious for being a pain to build due to the use of magnets being used to attach the hull to the framework and just generally not being a very study build. However that doesn't seem to have affected the price as you'll be paying a minimum of £950.00 to get this new and sealed.
#3 - Death Star II £1,400.00
The Death Star II depicts the second Death Star that you see in episode 5 and onwards. This is another of my favourites, I think LEGO did a fantastic job with the design of this set.
This set is also very satisfying to build as you start with the base and gradually build upwards until you're complete. Despite being released in 2005 it still looks amazing today, a timeless classic that every die hard LEGO Star Wars fan should have in their collection.
#2 - Millennium Falcon £1,400.00
Despite not being top of the list for many this is the holy grail when it comes to UCS sets. The original Millennium Falcon, this one is only going to go up in value.
#1 - Darth Maul £1450.00
Number 1 on our list may come as a surprise to many who would have expected to see the Millennium Falcon or Imperial Star Destroyer taking the top spot. However the Darth Maul set which was the 3rd to be released is the most valuable at nearly £1,500.
I think what makes this set so expensive and rare is because it was only available to buy for a year from October 2001 to October 2002.
