In June 8, 1984 Columbia Pictures released a supernatural comedy involving paranormal investigators starting a business to “capture” ghosts. “Ghostbusters” starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and the late Harold Ramis became a hit. It would lead to a sequel four years later, plus animated series spinoffs, videogames and more media. June 8 became “Ghostbusters Day”, a time when new Ghostbusters stuff usually gets announced amid fan celebration. This year’s edition had some cool announcements like a follow-up to the latest film, 2021’s “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”. Some animated projects were hinted too. But among the reveals, were no LEGO products.
LEGO has ridden the “Ghostbusters” resurgence somewhat by releasing tie-in sets the past few years. But as Brick Fanatics puts it, there wasn’t even a teaser for any new LEGO Ghostbusters thing. This doesn’t necessarily mean that LEGO’s leaving the theme dry a la LEGO Indiana Jones. The latest tie-in, Ecto-1 (10274), was announced in November of 2020. It usually came with a poster for “Afterlife,” although LEGO made no direct tie-ins to it. Still, with new upcoming “Ghostbusters” projects including an animated series and movie, one can only wonder. We might just be surprised.
In the last 10 years, LEGO Star Wars has consistently become one of the LEGO Group’s most popular (and lucrative) themes of all time. And with LEGO’s stronger partnership with Disney, the popularity of the saga only seems to be increasing. So, it’s no surprise that there has been a growing number of the most valuable LEGO Star Wars minifigures released over the decade. And to cap off this year’s Star Wars Celebration, we’re sharing this list of 11 most valuable LSW minifigures from the years 2010-2020.
Well, you may be wondering why we’re focusing on this time period. A lot has changed within the Star Wars galaxy since Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm back in 2012, and the most noticeable of it is the continuation of the Skywalker saga in The Force Awakens released in 2015. Now truth be told, there have been a lot of varying opinions regarding The Force Awakens and the sequels and spin-offs that came after it. However, it can’t also be denied that there has been plenty of new Star Wars characters that we learned to love and have made their way to become an official LEGO set. And with the introduction of these new characters also came a sort of minifigure reboot of familiar Star Wars characters (from the original and prequel trilogies) for a new generation of LEGO Star Wars fans to enjoy.
So if you’ve started collecting your LEGO Star Wars sets during the past 10 years or so, then you may want to check this list that we scoured over at Brickset. Just bear in mind that the listed prices for these minifigures are based on Bricklink’s catalog as of this posting and that these prices are particularly for new minifigures.
Read on and see if you have them in your collection. And in case you’re looking for that hard-to-find minifig, then you’ll be glad to know that The Brickshow Shop has a comprehensive collection of LEGO Star Wars minifigures that you can browse. Be sure to check this as well. Just a bit of a note though: this article contains affiliate links.

Most Valuable LEGO Star Wars Minifigures of 2010 to 2020
LEGO has a history of reissuing sets considering the fact that in rare cases, LEGO designers working on certain tie-in sets are not yet in the loop with regards to the details of their minifigure characters. This is the case for Resistance Bomber Pilot Finch Dallow from The Last Jedi. LEGO has to re-release set 75188 in order to stay true to Finch’s skin tone. What LEGO didn’t expect was the curiosity and demand that this set eventually created among the LEGO community making the set a bit harder to find.
If there’s anyone to blame for the rise of the Empire’s Clone Army in Attack of the Clones, it will be fair to say that Jango Fett has the biggest share. Being the best Mandalorian bounty hunter there is, his DNA became the template for the Kaminoans to create the perfect human soldiers for the Galactic Empire. And he got his 2nd chance for minifigure fame when LEGO released another brick iteration of the Jedi Starfighter in 2017.
5. 2016 – Ahsoka Tano (Adult Version) with Tunic, Armor, and Belt
Ahsoka Tano had four minifigures versions credited to her, but to be frank, this version is the most visually appealing in my opinion. Inspired by Disney XD’s animated series Star Wars Rebels, the set that she belongs to is 1 of the 4 Rebels sets released by LEGO in 2016.
Boba Fett is perhaps the most iconic bounty hunter in Star Wars lore, and this minifigure iteration of him from 2015 only deserves an equally imposing set. And being included in the one and only Ultimate Collector’s Series version of his trademark Slave I ship may have sparked interest for this minifigure variant among avid collectors.
7. 2014 – Darth Revan
From: LEGO Star Wars Darth Revan Promotional Minifigure (5002123)
Average Minifigure Price: $183.08
Darth Revan is probably one of the most beloved Star Wars video game characters of all time. We were introduced to his visual iteration when he first appeared in Electronic Arts’ role-playing video game, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic almost two decades ago. And more recently, Disney seems to be taking a keen interest in Darth Revan when he was reestablished as canon in 2019’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary. Prior to this, Disney gave the green light for LEGO to officially render him in minifigure form as a promotional polybag in 2014 and 2016.
8. 2013 – Yoda with NYI Heart Torso
From: 2013 New York Toy Fair.
Average Minifigure Price: $1,000
I may be wrong, but this might end up being the most expensive LEGO Yoda minifigure around. With only 1,000 minifigures released as part of 2013’s NY Toy Fair and May the 4th promotions, the rarity of this minifigure is underscored by the fact that there is no current inventory of it over at Bricklink. I guess this will surely put a smile on the Master Jedi’s face.
Making his debut in the animated series The Clone Wars, Pre Vizsla is the battle-hardened Mandalore leader of the infamous Death Watch. And in spite of his advanced Mandalorian armor and wielding the ominous darksaber, Pre Vizsla was eventually no match against Darth Maul. To his credit, however, LEGO has dedicated a LEGO Star Wars set in honor of his role in the Star Wars animated series.
Another Imperial foot soldier from the animated tales of The Clone Wars, the Shadow ARF Trooper – or Advanced Recon Force Trooper – is a highly specialized clone trooper that excels in short-range reconnaissance missions. And in 2011, LEGO opted to immortalize him in minifigure form as part of 2011’s May the 4th promotional sales.
11. 2010 – Boba Fett – White
From: LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett Promotional Minifigure Polybag (2853835)
Average Minifigure Price: $195.29
Among the 18 minifigure variants of Boba Fett, this one stands out from the group. This all-white minifig version of the most popular bounty hunter in the Star Wars galaxy comes as another Star Wars Day promotional gift in 2010, and as a token to all participating builders of the giant LEGO mural as part of the Star Wars Celebration V.
Summing It Up
This list of the most valuable LEGO Star Wars minifigures of the last decade is sure to be on the lookout list of any LEGO Star Wars fan. With so many amazing LSW sets released over the years, it’s hard to choose just 10 or 11. But, with a little effort, we’ve done just that. So let us know in the comments below which of these minifigures is your personal favorite and if you think we missed out on any LSW minifigure that should have been included in this list.
There’s much to anticipate in the upcoming LEGO Jurassic World Dominion film, now that we’re just counting the weeks before the franchise’s final installment is released in theaters on June 10. And to ramp up the excitement, LEGO has officially released its LEGO Jurrasic World 2022 tie-in sets over at its home shopping portal, with some of these sets made also available on Amazon.
I have to say that LEGO did a great job coming up with this wave of LEGO Jurassic World 2022 sets, and with an 18+ set particularly designed for those who grew up with the franchise, LEGO has solidified its Jurassic World theme as one of its most popular and endearing sets for almost a decade.

Collectors will never be unexcited by a new batch of LEGO Collectible Minifigures (CMFs). Beyond just populating LEGO play-sets, the minifigs themselves can show lots of character, especially if they’re part of a theme. Case in point, CMF aficionados have been on tenterhooks waiting for the LEGO Muppets Collectible Minifigures (71033). We’ve caught wind of rumors to that effect in October last year. The sweet roster of Muppet characters to be depicted there was too good to pass up. And now, LEGO has definitively confirmed its latest collectible minifigure series with an official product listing.
LEGO.com finally listed the new LEGO The Muppets Minifigures (71033), and “finally” needs to be stressed, given that other stores and online retailers have been offering the batch for weeks now. Such as what we’re offering right now at our storefront, The Brick Show Shop.
LEGO Muppets Collectible Minifigures 71033 Available at The Brick Show Shop
And even then, LEGO isn’t “officially” launching the new CMFs until the first of May. It’s up to collectors if they’re willing to wait or not. The LEGO Muppet CMFs look as awesome as advertised, with all those unique Muppet-accurate heads. Check these out.
And in case you want to take a look, we have these minifigures versions from The Muppet Show available over at The Brick Show. I’ve updated the links below in case you want to bring home any of the specific characters in these series and save yourself time in feeling each blind bag.
And here’s a brief sampling from the official product blurb:
LEGO Muppets Collectible Minifigures (71033)

Each finely crafted, highly detailed LEGO minifigure comes in a sealed ‘mystery’ bag with one or more accessories and a collector’s leaflet, making a great little gift that will put a smile on anyone’s face.

The end of this year sees the thought-unlikely return of a film/media franchise that ruled that late 90s-early 2000s. December 22 sees the release of “The Matrix Resurrections,” the distant fourth installment of “The Matrix.” Keanu Reeves returns as Thomas Anderson/Neo as he once again enters a mind-bending adventure that questions one’s perception of reality. It’s shaping up to be another Warner Bros. hit, and could potentially reignite fan interest in the franchise-setting. What does this bit of entertainment news have to do with LEGO? If you check the toy brand’s social media you’ll find them riding the hype bandwagon.
According to Brick Fanatics, the official LEGO Instagram account just posted an epic reference to “The Matrix” December 21. It was an image of two hands, one with a blue brick and the other a red brick. If you’ve watched “The Matrix” you’d know this to be a sendup of the red pill/blue pill dilemma. You want to end your playtime with the blue brick? Or would you rather see how deep the LEGO pile is with the red brick? Is LEGO just indulging in some cross-company promotion? Or are we seeing the promise of a new licensed-IP theme line?
Indeed, many of the comments on Instagram interpret this post as the announcement of LEGO Matrix tie-ins. Best-case scenario, not only would “The Matrix Resurrections” be referenced, but the original “Matrix Trilogy” too. Time will tell however if the commenters were spot on, or if wishful thinking made them think too deeply. We can only wait for how LEGO follows up on this one-off promotion.
Last September 30 saw the UK release of “No Time to Die”: the 25th “James Bond” movie. It was also the fifth and final installment starring actor Daniel Craig. At risk of spoilers, let’s say this film was an ending in more ways than one. And we’re not just talking about Craig’s Bond retiring from duty while a female agent inherits his 007 designation. Now rewind to three years ago, when LEGO released the Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 (10262). The quintessential 007 vehicle debuted in 1964’s “Goldfinger” during the Sean Connery Days. Craig himself first used it in his third film, “Skyfall” in 2015.
And just as “No Time to Die” became Daniel Craig’s Bond swan song, so is his LEGO DB5 retiring. Brick Fanatics notes that the Creator Expert Aston Martin set (10262) will be retired at the end of 2021. One might see this as a case of the stars aligning or such. The LEGO Aston Martin DB5’s leaving shelves and Shop@Home months after its real-life counterpart’s latest film appearance? It can only be fate. Collectors and “James Bond” fans might soon swarm over any stock of the set out there. The new movie’s also helping LEGO Aston Martin (10262) regain attention.
“No Time to Die” already premiered in the UK. The North American release follows on October 8. LEGO Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 (10262) still costs $149.99 on LEGO Shop@Home. We recommend to you get one now, before it retires at the end of 2021. Check out this trailer of “No Time to Die” for a shot of the Bond-use DB5 in action, if you need more incentive to buy.
The LEGO Marvel Eternals sets now have a confirmed released date, as confirmed by LEGO’s home shopping portal. LEGO Shop@Home has now officially listed these four tie-in sets, with a release date of October 1st.
Though images of these sets were well-circulated online several months ago, their official product descriptions now give us a better look at what to expect from them once they are made available next month. And the timing of the release couldn’t be better considering that MCU’s Eternals will finally arrive in theaters come November 5th.
There is no option to pre-order the LEGO Marvel Eternals sets, but you may want to add these to your LEGO wishlist right now. And while you’re at it, check out their official images below. You may also click on their respective affiliate links for full product descriptions.
Last week, LEGO announced the apparent delay of its highly anticipated LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Icons – Collectors’ Edition (76391) set. If you recall, the initial plan was to have this LEGO 18+ set released today. But due to unavoidable shipping delays, its official release date will be moved two weeks later on September 15. It’s a bit disappointing actually, especially for those who are eagerly waiting to build and display this magnificent set.
Thankfully, LEGO Shop@Home has opted to offer a kind of consolation to fans. Because starting today, you may now pre-order the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Icons – Collectors’ Edition (76391) over at LEGO’s home shopping portal. Take note however that this pre-order opportunity is only available online, so expect that this set might end up being in backorder status rather quickly.

A captivating collection of magical mementos This homage to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter features many iconic artifacts in a single, stunning model. There’s Harry’s wand and glasses; Ron’s chocolate frog; Hermione’s potion tray containing 5 bottles of potions and magical ingredients (including Gillyweed, Felix Felicis ‘liquid luck’ and Polyjuice); Tom Riddle’s diary; the Golden Snitch; and a school scarf (customizable to suit any Hogwarts™ House). On top of this enchanting ensemble sits Hedwig™ the owl, holding a much-coveted invitation to Hogwarts. This fascinating model is accompanied by 3 exclusive golden minifigures – Albus Dumbledore™, Minerva McGonagall™, and Rubeus Hagrid™ – and a display stand with a decorated tile celebrating 20 years of LEGO Harry Potter.

Also includes 3 exclusive anniversary golden minifigures – Albus Dumbledore™, Minerva McGonagall™, and Rubeus Hagrid™ – and a stand decorated with a tile celebrating 20 years of LEGO® Harry Potter™.
This rewarding project provides a hands-on, stress-relieving building experience, as 3,010 LEGO® bricks gradually transform into a stunning, full-size evocation of the Harry Potter™ universe.
This captivating construction project makes a great birthday gift, Christmas present, or personal treat for any model-making enthusiast or adult fan of the Harry Potter™ movies.

September 1 saw the expected release of multiple LEGO sets and extras. Among them is LEGO Minifigures Marvel Studios (71031), a new series of 12 minifigs of characters from the MCU. Specifically, they hail from the live-action limited series and animated anthology What If available on Disney+ streaming. Each LEGO Minifigures 71031 foil pack gives you a shot at getting Variant Loki from Loki, Scarlet Witch from WandaVision, T’Challa Star-Lord from What If, and more. But if you’re got little patience for scouring single minifig packs then LEGO has an alternative approach for you – the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Marvel Studios 6-Pack (66678).
Why bother opening multiple bags for one character at a time, when you can shoot for six? Check out LEGO Collectible Minifigures Marvel Studios 6-Pack (66678), now listed at Shop@Home. Every 6-Pack of 66678 contains six 71031 minifigures. It’s worth $29.94 or exactly six $4.99 LEGO minifig bags. How’s that for great convenience?
Grouping single bags of LEGO minifigures in a series isn’t exactly new. In a way that’s quite helpful for collectors. If there are any catches then they would be these two snags. Number 1: buying on Shop@Home will limit the quantity of LEGO Marvel Studios 6-Pack (66678) to three per household. That’s 18 chances to collect 12 characters. Number 2: as of this writing, both the 6-pack and the individual 71031 minifigure bags are sold out at Shop@Home (in the US at least). Hopefully, they’ll restock soon; these items are new after all. Online shoppers just need only wait some more.
After making their initial appearance over at third-party retailer sites, LEGO Shop@Home has made it official. Two new LEGO Batman Batmobile Tumbler sets are now available for pre-order at LEGO Shop@Home.
These new sets, the larger 18+ LEGO LEGO DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler (76240) and the LEGO DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown (76239) are both slated to be released on November 1 and October 1 respectively. I expect that the former will be a hit to LEGO collectors especially if you missed out on its 2014 predecessor. In case you want to secure these Instagram-worthy sets, then LEGO is giving fans the opportunity of pre-ordering them starting today.
Check out the following official images and product descriptions below, and while you’re at it, you may want to click on their respective LEGO Shop@Home links as well.
