Recently I partnered with a local gentleman from my town who wanted to offload his LEGO investment collection. We arranged a contract and worked together throughout the year. Through this experience, I learned a lot, not only about business, but about LEGO and which sets, and themes generated the most value after X amount of years. After conducting some further research, I decided to start my own LEGO investment collection. I choose to invest primarily in LEGO Star Wars since it’s what I’m most familiar with; so today, I will highlight several sets in my investment collection.
To know one’s surprise, first on the list is set 75280- 501st Legion Clone Troopers Battle Pack. This set retails for $29.99 and features 4 Clone Troopers and 2 Battle Droids, as well as 2 terrific builds. I predict the history of this set and the popular demand of the 501st Troopers will put this set in hot demand years from now. It’s a fan favorite and won’t be on shelves forever. Looking at the pricing history of similar Battle Packs such as the Utapau Troopers Battle Pack and the Clone Walker Battle Pack which have increased in value by 500% & 400% respectively, establishes a reliable future investment.
The next set isn’t just one set, but any set from the new 18+ helmet series. I own all the sets in the helmet collection and each and every one of them makes a remarkable, eye-catching display piece. They range in price ($49.99-$69.99) and are relatively affordable. There aren’t really any prior examples to gauge how the helmet sets will perform, but part of investing is risk-taking.
The last set to make the list is 75316- Mandalorian Starfighter. This is a stunning set with 3 exclusive Minifigures who will likely stay exclusive. We have seen the vastly growing love for the Mandalorians in the Star Wars universe. Their culture and stories are becoming fan favorites and this set depicts that flawlessly. The set retails for $59.99 which is $10 more than its predecessor, the 9525 Pre Vizla’s Mandalorian Fighter, which now trends at $300 on secondary markets; a 500% increase.
