The 12 Most Expensive LEGO Sets at RRP

LEGO 10276 Colosseum – £449.99

Release date: November 2020

Not only is LEGO Colosseum one of the most expensive sets ever released, it’s also (as of its release, anyway) the biggest set. With 9,036 it dwarves every other set so far. It’s huge!

Designed in the style of LEGO’s Architecture range, the Colosseum is a brick-built representation of Rome’s famous landmark. It’s mostly made of tiny pieces, but it’s still gargantuan in size when finished: it’s 52cm wide and 59cm deep. You’re going to need a big shelf to display this on.

LEGO Technic 42131 App-Controlled Cat D11 Bulldozer

Release date: October 2021

The first Technic set on this list is not the last – but it is the newest. This recreation of a Cat D11 Bulldozer is every bit as impressive as it sounds. Several motors inside allow it to be controller with the Technic Control app. And its 3,854 parts come together to make a huge model that any Technic fan is going to love. It’s 58.2cm x 48cm x 17 cm – so it’s has quite a presence.

With tracks that move the bulldozer backwards and forwards, a scoop that moves along with other working parts, too, this is more than just a model. We wouldn’t necessarily recommend trying to do any actual bulldozing with it though. Well, unless it’s a LEGO model.

LEGO Star Wars 75159 Death Star – £409.99

Release date: October 2016

It probably comes as no surprise by now that yet another Star Wars set sits among this list of the most expensive LEGO sets ever released. This one is a model Death Star, complete with various rooms, a mini TIE fighter and a whopping 27 minifigures.

It’s both a fantastic playset and a superb display set, and it’s one of the longest-running LEGO sets too. Released in 2016, it’s still available, although we’re not sure how much longer it’ll be on shelves. If you’ve had your eye on it and haven’t yet taken the leap, it might be wise to do so sooner rather than later.

LEGO Technic 42100 Liebherr R 9800 – £399.99

Release date: October 2019

The first not-Star Wars LEGO set to appear on the list, the Liebherr R 9800 is a scale replica of a huge excavation vehicle, complete with multiple working motors. Not only is it one of the most expensive LEGO sets you can buy, it’s also the single most expensive Technic set released to date.

And when you see it in the flesh, it’s not hard to see why. It’s an extremely impressive – and huge – Technic model. You can move it back and forth, spin the vehicle around, and independently operate the arm and scoop. At 4,108 pieces, we can attest that this takes some serious time to put together. But the finished model is quite the showstopper.
