The iconic LEGO® Minifigure is one of the most recognisable symbols of the brand, and over the years thousands of different variants have been released. Out of all those different versions of the LEGO® Minifigure there are some that are so sought-after that their value has reached dizzying heights. We wanted to find out which LEGO® Minifigures are the most expensive and what makes them more valuable than all the others.

What Makes a LEGO® Minifigure Valuable?

Before we get into our list of the top 10, it’s best to understand why some Minifigures are more valuable than others. The value of each Minifigure depends on the following criteria:

Rarity: How rare a Minifigure is will impact its value, after all, the rarer it is, the harder it is to get a hold of, and the more LEGO® Minifigure collectors will be willing to pay for it. Rare LEGO® Minifigure are some of the most valuable LEGO® pieces in the world.

Demand: The demand among LEGO® Minifigure collectors plays a vital role in its value, a higher demand for Minifigures like the ones below means higher price tags.

Condition: The condition of a LEGO® Minifigure plays a big part in its value, LEGO® Minifigures that are in bad condition will be worth far less than LEGO® Minifigures in mint condition.

Exclusivity: Sometimes exclusive LEGO® Minifigures are released for special events around the world like Comic-Cons or anniversaries, these Minifigures can end up selling for a lot of money due to both their rarity and their meaning.
