It’s not every day you come across a rare LEGO® set. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Most LEGO® sets are incredibly common and easily found at any toy store or online. However, there are a few sets and minifigs that are much harder to track down — and they can be worth a small fortune on the secondary market! In this blog post, Bricks & Minifigs® will take a look at four of the rarest LEGO® minifigs and discuss their current value for collectors. So if you’re feeling lucky, maybe you should start hunting for these sets now.
1999 Red Sox Giveaway Minifig
This minifig was given out to fans attending a Boston Red Sox game in 1999. It is one of the rarest baseball-themed minifigs and can be difficult to find in good condition. Reasonably priced at $100 – $150 (sometimes in the $200 range), this is a great addition to any LEGO® collection — especially if you’re a fan of the Red Sox!
2012 San Diego Comic-Con Superheroes
This set was given out to attendees of the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. Because it was only available at SDCC, this set is quite rare and can be difficult to find (and expensive!). Prices range from $150 – $185 for each figure in some of the aftermarket stores, but some places have them in the $400-500 range depending on their condition and rarity.
Cloud City Boba Fett
This is one of the most iconic and rare LEGO® minifigs ever made. It was only available in a very limited release at a few conventions back in 2010, making it extremely difficult to find. Prices for this minifig have been known to reach upwards of $1000, but can be found for around $600 – $700 if you’re lucky.
2012 San Diego Comic-Con Bilbo Baggins
This is another exclusive minifig from the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. This one is based on the character Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit and was only available at SDCC. Prices for this figure have been known to reach upwards of $200, but as they become rarer, this figure has been seen in some marketplaces for close to $800.
