The Most Valuable Retired LEGO Sets From The Last 10 Years

Wondering if any of the LEGO sets you’ve got sitting around are worth any money? Maybe we can help. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the most valuable LEGO sets from the last 10 years. They’re all now retired, and their value continues to go up and up.

There are some caveats to this list, of course. It’s non-exhaustive, as LEGO set values fluctuate constantly – as does anything on the second-hand market. We’ve also excluded anything that wasn’t a retail set. There are plenty of limited releases worth way more than these, but they’re so rare that hardly anyone has one (hence why they’re so valuable). The sets here all had general, wide releases and were on sale for a standard amount of time.

We’ve based this list on Bricklink prices and eBay sales, and it’s based on the price of new, unopened sets. All the sets on this list generally bring £500 or more if they’re new and sealed. If they’re open, they’re worth notably less – but still much more than RRP. And so, read on to see the most valuable retired LEGO sets from the last 10 years.

Do you own any of the sets on this list? Will you be holding on to them or selling them to buy something new? Let us know in the comments below!

LEGO Star Wars 75053 The Ghost

  • Available from June 2014 to December 2015
  • RRP £69.99 / $89.99
  • Estimated current value (new): £550
  • Price increase: 685%

LEGO Star Wars 75053 The Ghost tops this list of the most valuable retired LEGO sets from the last ten years. If you happen to have a new and sealed one of these, you’ll get around £550. That’s a huge increase (685%!) over its original £69.99 RRP back in 2014. It’s also one of four Star Wars sets on this list: it’s no surprise that LEGO Star Wars sets continue to be some of the most sought-after.

LEGO Creator Expert 10251 Brick Bank

  • Available from January 2016 to December 2018
  • RRP £129.99 / $169.99
  • Estimated current value (new): £450
  • Price increase: 246%

All of LEGO’s modular sets hold a good retail value after they’ve been retired. But for some reason, 2016’s Brick Bank has become one of the most valuable. Perhaps it’s because of the intricate architecture. Or perhaps it’s because of the absolutely wonderful laundrette at the side of the bank! Either way, if you have one of these new and sealed, expect to sell it for around £450.

LEGO Lord of the Rings 10237 Tower of Orthanc

  • Available from July 2013 to July 2015
  • RRP £169.99 / $199.99
  • Current estimated value (new): £450
  • Price increase: 164%

The oldest set on this list, the Tower of Orthanc is one of the most valuable retired LEGO sets of the last ten years. Expect more than a 160% increase over its original RRP of £169.99 if you still have one of these in new condition. It’s still an impressive, sought-after set for any Lord of the Rings fan.

LEGO Ninjago 70620 Ninjago City

  • Available from September 2017 to December 2019
  • RRP £259.99
  • Estimated current value (new): £570
  • Price increase: 128%

It’s no surprise that LEGO Ninjago City has made it onto this list of the most valuable retired sets. Just look at it! It’s one of the best Ninjago sets ever released – matched only by its sister sets, Ninjago City Docks and Ninjago City Gardens. Its huge brick count, massive collection of unique minifigures and wealth of colourful bricks all probably help this set hold its value.

LEGO Ninjago 70657 Ninjago City Docks

  • Available from June 2018 to December 2019
  • RRP £199.99 / $229.99
  • Estimaged current value (new): £440
  • Price increase: 120%

A sister set to LEGO Ninjago City above, the Ninjago City Docks is also one of the most valuable retired sets of recent years. This one is slightly smaller (and was slightly cheaper) than Ninjago City, but every bit just as sought-after. The two sets can connect together, making one huge display. And so if you’ve got one, chances are you’ll want both of them.

LEGO Star Wars 10236 Ewok Village

  • September 2013 to December 2016
  • RRP £199.99 / $249.99
  • Estimated current value (new): £400
  • Price increase: 100%

Here’s the second LEGO Star Wars set to appear on this list. Despite being around for over three years, LEGO Star Wars Ewok Village has still ended up being one of the most sought-after Star Wars sets. We feel like it’s probably due a re-release sooner rather than later, however, which may impact its value. Still, it’s worth twice as much as it was in 2013, with an estimated current value of £400. Not bad.

LEGO Star Wars 75222 Betrayal at Cloud City

LEGO Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City 75222
  • Available from October 2018 to December 2019
  • RRP £299.99 / $349.99
  • Estimated current value (new): £580
  • Price increase: 93%

One of the newest sets on this list, Betrayal at Cloud City retired in 2019 after just one year on store shelves. As such, it’s become rather sought after – we suspect largely for its minifigures and miniature vehicles. If you happen to own this set, it’s now worth around £580 new and sealed.

LEGO Batman 70922 The Joker Manor

  • Available from December 2017 to December 2018
  • RRP £249.99 / $269.99
  • Estimated current value (new): £480
  • Price increase: 92%

The Joker Manor is one of our favourite sets from The LEGO Batman Movie collection. Turning Arkham Asylum into a theme park, it’s filled with lots of cool details. Its purple roller coaster track makes it very sought after – being a precursor to the huge Roller Coaster that released in 2018. It has some rare minifigures, too, ensuring it’ll always hold its value.

LEGO 70840 Welcome to Apocalypseburg

  • Available from February 2019 to December 2019
  • RRP £279.99 / $299.99
  • Estimated current value (new): £500
  • Price increase: 78%

Staying on shelves for just 10 months, it’s no wonder that the fantastic Welcome to Apocalypseburg is so valuable now. Based on The LEGO Movie 2, it recreates a scene of a broken-down Statue of Liberty turned into ramshackle housing and shops. Packed with so much detail – and plenty of unique minifigures – it’s probably one of the most unique LEGO sets of recent years. It’s a shame it wasn’t around for very long – but a boon for those who were lucky enough to grab one.

LEGO Ghostbusters 75827 Firehouse Headquarters

  • Available from January 2016 to December 2018
  • RRP £284.99 / £349.99
  • Estimated current value (new): £500
  • Price increase: 75%

Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! Of course the Ghostbusters Firehouse has made it onto our list of the most valuable retired LEGO sets of the last 10 years. This has been one of the most loved sets for adults since it released back in 2016, and few sets have beaten it since. Whether or not you’re a Ghostbusters fan, there’s no denying this is one super cool set.

LEGO Star Wars 75159 Death Star

LEGO Star Wars Death Star 75159
  • Available from October 2016 to December 2020
  • RRP £409.99 / $499.99
  • Estimated current value (new): £700
  • Price increase: 70%

Last but not least is the LEGO Star Wars Death Star, which retired at the end of 2020. That makes it one of the newer sets on this list. It’s already gained almost £300 in value since its retirement – and chances are it’ll continue to increase. Although we can expect LEGO to release another Death Star at some point, we think this one will retain its value considering the amount of minifigures here.
