Ridiculously Expensive Star Wars LEGO Sets

Star Wars + LEGO = A Geek’s Dream. And in this economy, no one can afford this stuff. But that won’t stop us from drooling over it. Let’s cut to the chase:

Star Destroyer

41vp8 2hzql ss400 1
With 3104 pieces and 3 feet long, this is the daddy of the Star Wars LEGO universe. Costs between $430 and $1000. Or, you get get a much cheaper one here.

Tantive IV Rebel Blockade Runner

418tbahtohl ss500

I’m finding this going for between $600 and $1000, probably because it’s a ‘retired’ item. Regardless, it isn’t exactly the Millennium Falcon so no clue who’d drop this kind of coin on a ship like this.

Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon

51nrgu3nsfl ss400

Okay, now we’re talking. This MUST-HAVE goes from $400-$900. But if you don’t want this one, get this one:

Episode III Millennium Falcon


Costs between $400 and $500. I think the first one is better. I found another one for about $800: Millennium Falcon Set 7190.

Death Star

411wxzfkggl ss400

Yeah buddy! The Death Star includes 24 minifigures and droids, and even the trash compactor! Costs between $400 and $1000. Of course, this one is for playing inside the Death Star. However, you can also get this one:

Death Star II

51yxnsiujzl ss400

I suppose this one is just for blowing up other planets, not playing rescue-the-princess. Costs between $260 and $430.

Cloud City

10123 0000 xx 12 1

For you Lando Calrissian lovers, get your heavenly Cloud City, which features 7 minifigures for $320-$700.

Ultimate Collection Series Darth Maul Bust

41rgzoxev8l ss500 1

The Darth Maul LEGO Bust. Exactly. $380-$530.

Jabba’s Sail Barge

51ztcbbhfrl ss500

Costs between $160 and $400, but there’s one problem with this. Jabba the Hutt is hideous for a LEGO. Let’s take a closer look:

21ckucf2x1l sl500 aa280

Worst. Jabba. Ever. (Psst… buy him here)

Here’s a more affordable one, complete with Jabba and Princess Leia: Jabba’s Palace. And don’t forget Jabba’s Prize (with Boba Fett, Han Solo in carbonite, and an ugly Gamorrean Guard) and Jabba’s Message (C-3P0, R2-D2 and Bib Fortuna).

AT-AT Walker

4483 box 560x369

Anything involving the AT-AT is cool. Seeing it for sale between $120 and $500. You can also get a Motorized Walking AT-AT.

Jedi Master Yoda

7194 0000 xx 12 1

Seeing this 14-inch Jedi Master between $175 and $326.

TIE Collection

10131 0000 xx 12 1

I like this because it comes with four ships, and Darth Vader. Costs between $180-$285. But I gotta say, this one looks cooler:

Ultimate Collector Series TIE Interceptor


Running between $300 and $700.

There are many other really expensive Star Wars LEGO sets (find them here), but these are the most interesting I could find.

Star Wars Minifigures

Now, let’s move onto the more affordable options… the minifigures sold separately.

C-3PO (Golden, Limited Edition of 10,000)
415yjaleral sl500 aa280 It’s golden! It’s limited edition! It’s a must-have!

21rqr7yl92l sl500 aa214

Slave Leia

Is it wrong that I think even the LEGO version of this is hot? You can also get her with a lot more clothes on (in her Hoth outfit).

21b4qh1cyl sl160 aa160

Boba Fett

Why is this guy so popular? Also get him on a key chain or in one of the Jabba sets above. Or, buy him with his ship, Slave 1.

41by2kgmsul ss500 1 250x300

Darth Vader

Even the LEGO version of Vader is awesome. And if you get him, you should also get him when he is damaged, when he is a kid, and when he is a teen.

41cwv0j5dpl sl500 aa280

Darth Maul with Silver Double-Sided Lightsaber

Even the LEGO version of Maul sucks.

31kagihp3kl sl160 aa160


This one rocks… just like the original toys, you’ve gotta get a bunch of these and line them up behind Vader. Also get Stormtrooper (Black), Clone Trooper (Red), Kashyyyk Trooper, Scout Trooper, or Snowtrooper.

414hy3rtjfl sl500 aa280 1


I wish they made a whole Wookie army of LEGO characters.

31ddpd7mml sl500 aa239

Imperial Royal Guard with Force Pike

Something about this guy is really cool, though he’s just a minor character. If you get him, then you should also get Emperor Palpatine. Or, you can get both the emperor and Vader in this set called Final Duel I.

41hngxcoe7l sl500 aa280


Or, if you’re too cheap to buy the gold one, get the ordinary one. This figure is featured in the image, LEGO C3PO, I’m Your Father

31gdamoh3tl sl500 aa280


And if you get the C-3PO, you’ve gotta get R2-D2.

31kcqkpsbl sl500 aa280


I love the Ewoks, but this was the only one I could find. Wish there were more.

41nzfton5l sl500 aa280

Luke Skywalker (Black Hand)

Whoever this guy is… Also get him in his Tatooine outfit.

Han Solo (Brown Legs with Jacket)
Yoda – LEGO Star Wars Figure
Obi Wan Kenobi (Old Ben)
Mace Windu
Tusken Raider
Jar Jar Binks
Rebel Trooper
Qui-Gon Jinn
Battle Droid
Believe it or not, there are many more that you can find on Amazon.
