You never know what treasures may lurk in an old toybox – although we think it safe to say that none of these top 10 most valuable LEGO Star Wars minifigures are likely to be found in one.
According to Minifigure Price Guide, eight of the top 10 most valuable LEGO minifigures ever come from the Star Wars universe. If you happen to own a genuine one of these (they’re highly pirated) then you’re really bloody lucky, crazy rich or both!
1: Boba Fett – solid 14K gold
Made for a 2010 promotion, only two of these little bounty hunters are known to exist.
2: C-3PO – solid 14K gold
There are only five of these 2007 30th anniversary promotion editions of the golden droid out there.
3: C-3PO – solid silver
He’s still popular in silver, in this 2007 piece made for Star Wars Celebration IV.
4: C-3PO – solid bronze
Eat your heart out, R2-D2! C-3PO’s back in, erm, bronze. This was a 2007 promotion for San Diego Comic-Con.
5: Boba Fett – sterling silver
Boba Fett’s back, with this 2010 promotional minifigure of which only two exist that accompanied number one on this list. Hey, it only costs four figures!
6: Boba Fett – bronze
Yep, him again. This relative cheapie is another promo item from 2010, and another with only two existing.
7: C-3PO – orange
It’s Oompa Loompa C-3PO! This one wasn’t officially released, it’s just a prototype from 1999.
8: George Lucas
Who’s this beardie bloke?! This minifig of the Star Wars creator was also only prototyped – but some escaped LEGO’s empirical clutches.
9: C-3PO – chrome gold
Trust us Aussies to keep it relatively real. This 30th anniversary Australian edition is a bonza little bargain!
10: R2-KT – pink
Another prototype, of which 50 were produced in 2010.
