We often get asked, "Why do some Minifigures cost so much?" So we'll try to explain some of the reasons that make some Minifigures so valuable.
We've pictured here "Mr Gold" from the Series 10 Collectable Minifigures range. He is arguably the most expensive LEGO Minifigure ever created. What makes Mr Gold so expensive is his limited release, just 5000 were made worldwide & randomly placed in Boxes of Series 10 Minifigures. With the popularity of this series & collectors wanting to complete their collection, the price has sky rocketed to well over a couple of thousand dollars.
Many Minifigures don't reach the same dizzying heights, but will still grow to well over $100 each. Sometimes it is not due to an initial limited supply, rather they may have only been included in an expensive LEGO set, or are an extremely popular character. Others are great "Army Builder" Minifigures & therefore collectors try to purchase many of the same character to build their Army!
