LEGO Harry Potter 75978 Diagon Alley – £369.99
Release date: September 2020
The newest entry on this list is also one of our favourites. Sure, this recreation of Diagon Alley might be one of the most expensive LEGO sets released, but it’s hard to argue it’s not worth the money.
It’s essentially four sets in one, with four iconic Diagon Alley buildings each being its own model. And being 5,544 pieces, it takes some serious building too – and a lot of space to display. Side by side, the whole set measures over a metre in length. Phew!
LEGO Star Wars 10221 Super Star Destroyer – £349.99
Release date: August 2011 – October 2014
The LEGO Super Star Destroyer was extremely expensive for its time. And if you happen to have one of these from 2011, it’s worth way more than its RRP now. It’s 3,152 pieces, making it one of the biggest LEGO sets of its time. It’s still a remarkable model today and doesn’t much show its age.
LEGO Technic 42115 Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 – £349.99
Release date: June 2020
Look at this thing! It’s beautiful! Made up of 3,696 pieces, it’s a faithful representation of the real-world car in a stunning lime green colour. There’s working suspension, steering and a movable gearshift too. It’s quite expensive, but it’s a darn sight cheaper than a real Lambo. So it’s the closest most of us will be getting, unfortunately.
LEGO Harry Potter 71043 Hogwarts Castle – £349.99
Release date: September 2018
You can practically hear the Harry Potter theme song in your head just by looking at this thing. At 6,020 pieces, Hogwarts Castle is one heck of a model. It’s huge, and intricately detailed. It’s held back only by the fact that it’s microfigure scale rather than minifigure, but it’s understandable – the thing would be huge otherwise.
